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!

  1. Really great trailer. I’m pleasantly surprised at how faithful it looks to Star Wars while still looking like a new fresh thing. And that new lightsaber is awesome but maybe not the most practical sword hilt
