The trailer doesn’t give much away. To be honest Disney could have released two minutes of dung beetles rutting with My Humps by Black Eyed Peas over the top and The Force Awakens would still be the biggest film of this or any other year.
It looks like the first generation cast will be playing second fiddle to the newcomers (grand). John Boyega’s Finn gets to wield a lightsaber, and the baddies are a sort of Empire tribute band called The First Order. There’s still no sign of Mark Hamill (or Skellig Michael), but the new poster does show what appears to be another Death Star (third time’s a charm). Advanced tickets are available now, but the midnight screenings have already sold out.
Now, if you’ll excuse me I’m off to watch it another 40 times through tears of joy.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is released on December 17.
