Following The Force Awakens Panel from the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California last night, everyone must’ve died a little as the brand new trailer for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film, slated for release on 18 December worldwide, was unveiled. We won’t lie; we’re freaking out. Can December come already?
In the two-minute teaser, we get our first proper look at Kylo Ren, some scenes featuring the new leads, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley (whom we’re pretty certain will act as Leia’s daughter), R2-D2, new droid BB8 and Darth Vader’s deteriorating mask from Return Of The Jedi. We also hear Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker, in a voiceover where he describes how the Force is strong in his family.
And the final shot. We literally had goosebumps when it ended with a shot of Han Solo saying to Chewie, “We’re home.”
Christmas this year will definitely be a memorable one.
