OK, so this should be in the Trailers of the Week post, because it’s definitely THE trailer of the week, but whatever. Disney / Lucasfilm have released the latest trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and it looks fucking epic.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a bearded man made a film called Star Wars. For a time it was good. Then he released a bunch of rubbish ones, sold his company to Disney and there’s a new movie out at Christmas, guys. keep up! Watch it below, or go to our round-up of all the other awesome trailers released this week.
Old Han Solo!
I’m sure there will be posts dissecting every little part of this trailer in the hours to come, but I’m not going to do that for you. That’s for people with more time on their hands to do. Here’s a few of my quick thoughts though…
- Stormtroopers! And lots of them! Not only that, but the young chap we met at in the desert at the beginning of the previous teaser is seen removing his stormtrooper helmet, and then not being a stormtrooper at all! What’s going on? Has he seen the light (side)?
- Football droid! It looks like the little guy we saw beeping and booping and rolling around before is going to have more than a couple of scenes. This is good, and obviously intended to sell some awesome toys.
- Silver Stormtrooper! I have no idea what to make of this, but he looks pretty hardcore. He’s gonna fuck shit up.
- Old Han Solo! It looks like Mr Ford has settled right back into his (arguably) most famous role from a gazillion years ago. Just seeing Han and Chewbacca share the screen again gives me chills. Hell, even thinking about it does.
Watch the trailer and then let us know just how goddamn psyched you are for Christmas. For the first time in years, I’m really goddamn psyched. And you should be too!!!
