3 days ago Lucasfilm released the highly anticipated teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams (who also directed the last two Star Trek films) and will be released on the 18th of December 2015.
The film is set approximately 30 years after the defeat of the Empire. The plot follows a trio of young leads, along with characters from the previous installments. Not much more is known about this film, but this massive Star Wars fan thinks that it’s going to be epic. I nearly had a Geekasm when I saw the trailer…
How cool is this? I have watched all the previous Star Wars films numerous times and I really hope that The Force Awakens lives up to expectations. I’m very curious to see what else will be revealed in the other trailers (which will probably be released during the course of next year). The new lightsabre design looks pretty damn epic and it looks like we’ll be seeing the Millennium Falcon in the new film too (which is great, just great). Luckily I’m not seeing any Mickey Mouse ears in the trailer (which is a good thing). Let’s hope that J.J. Abrams doesn’t mess this one up.
What are your thoughts about this trailer? Leave a comment and let me know. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
