The release of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens is still over a year away, but rumblings about a trailer debut coming very soon are getting more and more prominent. Adding credence to the notion that a debut trailer for director J.J. Abrams’ sequel might be premiering soon is a new rumored Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer description, which runs down what we might see from the very first trailer for the new Star Wars picture. Obviously this is a very highly anticipated event—remember the anticipation surrounding the trailer debut for Episode I?—so I will be very curious to see how Disney chooses to unveil the first footage from the film. Will we know when it’s going to debut ahead of time? Will they simply sneak it into an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC?
Hopefully we’ll know more soon, but for now you can start to semi-prepare by reading the rumored Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer description, which sounds both plausible and exciting, after the jump.
Devin over at Badass Digest has seemingly been pretty on point when it comes to Star Wars rumors thus far, and so I’m inclined to trust his sources when it comes to this trailer description. Here’s what he says the trailer might contain:
It’s going to have The Force Theme played on woodwinds, softly, over flashing images of the main leads, each fading to black. There’s no dialogue, just reveals of the characters. And then the music swells up into a full orchestral piece – perhaps what John Williams recorded this weekend? – and we hear a female voice, likely Daisy Ridley‘s, saying “Wake up.”
And then the title card appears – Star Wars: The Force Awakens – and we see the Millennium Falcon, firing blasters, coming right at the camera.
The report adds that the trailer is short, only about a minute long, but it will likely be debuting within the next four to five weeks. There have indeed been rumors that it might debut on ABC, which doesn’t seem too far-fetched seeing as how that’s where Disney initially planned to unveil the first Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer. But this is Star Wars we’re talking about, so my money is still on it being attached to a big Disney theatrical release—the star-studded musical Into the Woods seems like an ideal candidate given its Christmas Day release date.
What do you think, readers? If this trailer description is accurate, is this an acceptable introduction to the new Star Wars? It does seem to reveal very little while also giving up quite a lot (ie. the first looks at the characters). Sound off in the comments below. Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters on December 18, 2015.
