Prepare for THE FORCE AWAKENS Trailer with the First Trailers for All 6 STAR WARS Films

by     Posted 23 days ago


There’s a palpable degree of anticipation in the air, and it’s not for great Black Friday deals on vacuum cleaners.  No, tomorrow marks a different holiday of sorts, as Disney and Lucasfilm will unveil the very first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  Episode VII in the sci-fi saga marks the first new Star Wars film in nine years and the first entry in the franchise without George Lucas’ official involvement as a director, writer, or producer.  Indeed, The Force Awakens is the beginning of a new era kicked off by director J.J. Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy, and a stellar cast led by John Boyega and Daisy Ridley.  In preparation for our introduction to the film tomorrow, now feels like an opportune time to look back at how all of the previous Star Wars films were introduced with their first trailers.

After the jump, watch the very first Star Wars trailers for all previous six entries in the franchise, and be sure to check back here early tomorrow to watch the debut teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Confessions of a STAR WARS Virgin: Allison Watches EPISODE V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK for the First Time

Our daily series where Allison Keene watches the Star Wars movies for the first time. Read her intro/explanation here, and here’s her Star Wars review.

Empire Strikes Back is probably one of the densest genre movies I have ever seen.  Because it embraces its role as sequel fully, the story dives right in and doesn’t need to spend more time on character development.  Even when it adds new characters (like Yoda, more on him in a minute) there’s not a ton of backstory, and yet, they seem to fit perfectly well into the world for their own purpose.  Besides, Empire seems to know now with gusto that there will be a follow-up, and the layers don’t all have to fit into a single feature.  Hit the jump for my take on Empire.
