A television spot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has just dropped in the UK, and at this point it’s beginning to feel as if all this new footage is the gift that keeps on giving. The spot features a new voice-over piece from Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata discussing the eyes of people she has seen. I can’t help but wonder, if she is talking to Rey, if that is a clue to her lineage as a Skywalker.
So, let’s break this trailer down a bit, shall we? First off, we’ve got this gorgeous shot of the Millennium Falcon flying to a wooded planet surface. Perhaps it’s Yavin 4.
Rey and BB-8 just chillin.
Han Solo on a snowy planet, and he doesn’t look too pleased.
We’ve seen this one before, but I’m adding it because I think we are looking at the new bromance of the Star Wars Saga. Much like Luke and Han, or Obi-Wan and Anakin before them, Poe and Finn are going to be bros, you just know it.
Another familiar scene here, with Finn, Rey, Han and BB-8 heading into Maz Kanata’s castle.
Rey watching the First Order land on the wooded planet.
Rey kicking some serious ass with that staff. (I still believe it’s a double-bladed lightsaber)
Poe Dameron’s X-Wing squadron flying what looks to be the trench of the Starkiller base.
The Falcon getting into some trouble, being chased by a TIE.
Rey giving a hand-up to Finn.
The Resistance battles the First Order in the skies above Starkiller base.
This is the most exciting new scene. Rey firing a blaster at Kylo Ren, as he deflects the blast with his lightsaber.
BB-8 — I want one.
Rey possibly working the controls in the Falcon?
An AMAZING shot of the Millennium Falcon bursting through the trees of the snowy planet.
That’s it for now, but stay tuned as I fully expect more television spots to drop, the closer we get to December 17 and 18, and the worldwide premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
