The new trailer (watch it below) is far better than the first teaser trailer from November 2014 and offers one heck of a geektastically infused chunk of midichlorian goodness.
The new trailer is narrated by none other than Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) who goes on to reference ‘The Force’ and how it runs through his family; namely his father, sister, himself and… an unseen child. The second teaser trailer is packed to the brim with content and easter eggs that are sure to offer adrenaline rushes to fans around the world.
Unlike the previous teaser that did not showcase any of the veteran cast, the new trailer offers a variety of ominous glimpses of Luke (Mark Hamill) and Leia (Carrie Fisher), it showcases even more Millennium Falcon flyby’s, it includes shots of new and destroyed Star Destroyers, even more glimpses of the new protagonists, before finally culminating with a shot of both Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), and Solo announcing that they are “home”. It is a fantastic rush.
There is even more to the trailer, however, which also showcases Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) running away from an explosion on the planet Jakku, with rolling droid BB-8 in hot pursuit, another shot of Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) whooping as he guides his X-Wing over water, a sneak peek at Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) using his force powers, and a lot of forthcoming scenes that feature new Stormtroopers, Tie fighters and so much more.
The new teaser offers just enough to satisfy fans whilst continuing to whet our appetites for even more information about the film, which releases this December, 2015.
