Watch Our Breakdown of the New ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Trailer
Star Wars! It’s back! With lightsabers! And Stormtroopers! Jedis! The Force! The Force awakening! X-wings! X-wings flying over water! R2-D2! Other, additional droids! The Millennium Falcon!
Okay, that’s the easy stuff we all know. But what about the less obvious stuff? What planet is all this madness set on? Who’s the Sith Lord with the red lightsaber? Which character is hanging out with R2-D2? Who’s the dude (or dudette) in the chrome Stormtrooper outfit? Is that really Harrison Ford as Han Solo or just an incredibly lifelike robot? In this detailed breakdown for the brand new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, we answer all your burning questions. At least the ones we know the answers to. For the rest, we just guess. But they’re very educated guesses. We’ve seen Star Wars many, many times.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens explodes into theaters on December 18. I’ve written eight variations of that sentence today, so I have to assume you know this by now. (And, yes, that is Harrison Ford. I think. I’m pretty sure. Like 95 percent sure. But don’t hold me to that. I could be wrong. I’ve been fooled before.)
