Today was the beginning of Star Wars Celebration, the Star Wars convention that brings people around the world together for all things Star Wars. As part of the kickoff to the weekend, they premiered the new trailer for the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. After just watching it, here are some quick thoughts:
1) There was more depth to the trailer (which was to be expected). The initial shot of the crashed X-Wing which then revealed the crashed Star Destroyer was pretty epic way to start it off.
2) Love the voiceover by Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker. This trailer tied a little more into the original cast but still left a lot in mystery. There’s a shot of Luke hooded (with his robotic hand no longer covered) with R2 & later handing someone a lightsaber. And at the end of the trailer there’s the awesome shot of Han Solo & Chewbacca with Han saying “We’re home.” Where is home?
3) Lots of action with the new cast. It’s safe to say that John Boyega, Daisy Ridley & Oscar Isaac are going to have huge roles in this film and they look like they’ll be great in carrying the film.
I’m so looking forward to December.
