Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Debuted at Star Wars Celebration

Posted by Caelan Dooley Thursday, April 16, 2015
From a war-torn galaxy far, far away comes the new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and it is everything to be excited about. [Trailer below]

Debuted at Star Wars Celebration with director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, the trailer begins with a speeder racing across the desert toward the wreckage of a star destroyer. We then hear a familiar voice that will bring goosebumps to the back of your neck. "The Force is strong in my family," begins what sounds like Luke Skywalker's monologue to Leia from Return of the Jedi. "My father has it. I have it. My sister has it…And you have that power, too."

The last line sets off plenty of speculation that the new films will feature his son, Ben Skywalker, who was born amid the devastation of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. The passing of Darth Vader's lightsaber into the hands of a child may further confirm that this new character is Luke's son, and that may lead to Mara Jade—Luke's wife—being added to the mix as well.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens leaked advanced footageThe first trailer left us with the epic glimpse of the three-bladed lightsaber, and this trailer leaves us with perhaps the most iconic image thus far: Darth Vader's scorched helmet, last seen at his funeral pyre as Luke mourned losing his father in Anakin's moment of redemption.

The trailer concludes with another glimpse of our villain and a short glimpse of our favorite ship, the Millennium Falcon, taking flight through a battlefront that includes TIE fighters. Soon enough we see our old friends Han Solo and Chewbacca again, and with a crooked smile Harrison Ford says, "Chewie, we're home."

Set 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will be in theaters on December 18.
