It’s not a bad job when you find yourself watching the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer dozens of times on a Friday morning for work. As a teaser, it’s fantastic. I was a little disappointed not to see Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher or Harrison Ford, but I suppose J.J. Abrams wants to introduce us to the newer merits of his story first. It contains a lot more action than I expected, that’s for sure. The teaser was a million miles away from the “reveal of characters” scroll I was expecting, instead plummeting us into action on several different worlds and revealing the background of John Boyega‘s character. This world feels tactile, lived in and not at all like the prequels. All good stuff.
Hit the jump for Star Wars: The Force Awakens images. The film is due in theaters on December 18th, 2015 and also stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis, Gwendoline Christie and many more. And be sure to check out the trailer if you haven’t already.
