WATCH Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens First Trailer!
Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens has its first teaser trailer. It debuted in selected U.S. theaters and iTunes on Friday, and immediately hit the Internet. To say anticipation was high is an understatement. It’s kind of a perfect release for the consumer holiday known as Black Friday.
The new 88-second teaser trailer does not give away much, but fans are already poring over and analyzing the visuals. Plot details have been kept under wraps, although the movie is believed to be set about 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. Original trilogy stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are returning for The Force Awakens, along with newcomers Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley.
It marks the first installment in an extensive new series of Star Wars projects following Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm. The last theatrical release was 2005’s Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. The new film, Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams, opens on December 18, 2015.
