Fans got to see the final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer at last. The TV Spot made its much awaited debut on Monday Night Football and it was nothing short than awesome.
There’s a lot to digest after watching the final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, ahead of the highly-anticipated December 18 premiere.
Not surprisingly, Rey (Daisy Ridley) once again gets a lot of screen time. As previously reported by the Inqusitr, Lucasfilm President, Kathleen Kennedy, confirmed her character is an “extremely significant” part of the new canon and has signed on for the next two installments, at least.
The new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer shows Rey displaying a range of emotions, from defiance to sadness and tears. We can only imagine what has made the scavenger cry, but it can’t be good. Rey and Finn (John Boyega) seem to be discovering what happened after Return of the Jedi. Didn’t that look like the “war room” in A New Hope, where the Council planned and executed the destruction of the Death Star?
Talking about the Dark Side, that sounded a lot like Darth Vader’s voice, didn’t it? We knew him to be dead, but there have been clues that he may still be alive and in the previous, Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) is heard talking about his family’s special powers. Then, the camera zooms to a mangled Darth Vader mask and we saw that same mask again on Monday.
One of the most exciting things about the final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is that we get a tiny glimpse at Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), whose voice opens the clip. In recent remarks, Kennedy said Episode VII is about the Skywalker family, but we have yet to see the Jedi himself, Luke.
It is still unclear who are Rey’s parents. The general consensus is that she’s the daughter of Han Solo and Princess Leia, but some also believe she could be Luke’s offspring. Director J.J. Abrams says he has kept Rey and Finn’s last names a secret to protect the plot.
The final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer also reveals just a little more about Finn, who we know is a renegade Stormtrooper. While we see a lot more of him, we still can’t tell what his intentions are or if he is a good guy or not. For unknown reasons, Finn has escaped the clutches of Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and found Rey on the planet Jakku.
There, they both meet up with Han Solo and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), who discover the legendary Millennium Falcon. When Rey asks Han whether all the stories they have heard about what happened all those years ago are true, he says, “It’s true…all of it.”
“The Dark Side, the Jedi, they’re real.”
The final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer spent a lot more time on the Dark Side and revealing what Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is up to. While all this is happening, fierce battles between good and evil forces rage on in Jakku and another frozen planet.
Little tidbits indicate Han, Chewie, and Finn are taken as prisoners by one of the villains. Is it Captain Phasma or Kylo Ren? We heard Leia’s voice talking to someone about The Force. Is she talking to her daughter? And where is Luke? We still have not had one glimpse of the Master Jedi. A lot of new information is shown in the trailer, but Abrams still has much to reveal when the blockbuster finally hits theaters in December.
