Yes, There’s Another ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ TV Spot With More Footage
Here’s something you should get used to reading: there’s a new Star Wars: The Force Awakens TV spot that includes mostly old footage, but some tantalizing new looks at the upcoming film. We’ve said that plenty of times over the past few days and have a feeling we’ll be saying at a lot more up until the movie hits theaters.
This new bit of footage comes from an appearance on Disney XD UK (a similar version, but with an American host instead, will air tonight in the U.S.) where we see some very brief glimpses at the new movie. What’s interesting — aside from the new bits that include hearing General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) for the first time — is that some of these shots are familiar, yet completely different.
You’ll notice in this footage there’s the old “Chewie, we’re home,” bit. Except it’s not the same take used in the old trailer. Whereas that one was slower and more poignant, this one is quicker and lighter (and doesn’t feature Chewie growling). It will be interesting to see which one makes it in the film.
At some point, you may have to decide whether or not you’re going to watch any more of this additional footage. There’s obviously nothing inherently spoilerish in these official videos, but does, at any point, enough become enough? Ironic considering just a month ago people were complaining that we knew nothing about this movie.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters on December 18, 2015.
