Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens – New Trailer

17

“I’ll finish what you started…”

Here it is, the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer that scored more than a million hits on Facebook within 30 minutes of being posted. It probably raises more questions about the JJ Abrams-directed sequel than it answers, specifically, “Where’s Luke?” And why Han Solo has to warn, “The Dark Side – the Jedi – they’re real,” as if they’ve somehow become an urban myth. Has Han taken on the Obi-Wan mentor role, leading “no one” Rey (Daisy Ridley) and “I’ve got nothing to fight for” Finn (John Boyega) to the greater destiny?

 

 

So it might be light on details, but that’s good. Too many trailers give too much away these days. It looks the business (and sound the business, too – John Williams’s low-key version of the theme sends chills up your spine). A new droid! What may be a Jedi temple! More amazing spaceship action. Princess Leia! Kylo Ren sounding all raspy! It’s almost too much.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens arrives in UK cinemas on 17 December.
