The First Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Has Landed!
It’s here, and it’s pretty cool! And for only about a minute-long, with just a few scattered clips of characters, droids and locales, this really does feel like a marriage of Star Wars and J.J. Abrams!
I liked the trailer, I really did! Everything has that Star Wars ‘feel’, you know what I mean? The ships, the little droid, the sounds; this trailer felt like Star Wars. And at the same time, this is clearly a J.J. Abrams movie! There’s fast-paced action and fast-moving spaceships. It kind of feels like Abrams’ Stark Trek movies. Is that weird?
I’m a little disappointed that Abrams didn’t give us a glimpse of any of the classic characters, but I still liked what I saw. Something about seeing that Stormtrooper with his helmet off is really cool to me. I’ve always been a little sympathetic to the faceless, nameless nobodies who worked for the Empire. What are their stories? Perhaps we’ll find out!
Also, lightsaber sword hilt is the new double-bladed lightsaber.
We have more than a year to wait for this movie, but here’s hoping we get even more trailers before too long!
