Just a few days after the first trailer for Jurassic World dropped, we get this: the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is the first true Star Wars sequel directed by JJ (I love me some lens flare) Abrams. Let’s take a look, shall we?
^ This little guy looks like Beach Ball Artoo. I have to admit that I’m intrigued to see what the story is behind this, if there is one. If nothing else, it should make for an interesting action figure.
^ We get our first look at the new Stormtroopers. If you’re wondering how they’re new, just take a closer look at their “faces”.
^ Our first look at actress Daisy Ridley as she’s starting up her transport.
^ And she rides off. I love how the folks in Star Wars never have to worry about flat tires.
^ And brand new, redesigned X-Wing fighters are attacking…somebody.
^ And then there’s THIS guy…. Looks like they shot this in the snow-covered woods around my house. Come to think of it, I DID see a dude in the woods with a light saber recently…say, you don’t think….
Seriously, I really like the new light saber design. It evokes a broad sword version of the classic light saber. Very cool.
The Falcon is back, and we also get the rousing Star Wars theme, and I can’t wait to see this, now. By the way, the Falcon has a new radar dish, and it looks a little like a bow tie.
I’m really psyched to see this one. Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in December, 2015. Here’s the trailer:
