Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer

"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…" It's here. It's time. It has been 31 years since we've seen Luke & Leia Skywalker, Han Solo, and Chewbacca in a movie, but they're back once again. Disney/Lucasfilm have unveiled the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, also know as Episode VII, the continuation of the Jedi story that concluded with the destruction of the Death Star at the end of Return of the Jedi. It starts with a shot of John Boyega and has a glimpse of the Millennium Falcon. From there? Well. This is what we've all been waiting for, our first glimpse after so many secrets. May the Force Be With You.

Along with Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford, the cast includes Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o, Adam Driver, Warwick Davis and Peter Mayhew.

    JJ did it. I don't even have to see the movie and I know he did it,
  • Michael Power
    Urrm actually we saw R2-D2 and C-3PO much more recently than that! YES first nerdy and pedantic Star Wars comment in a long time, it begins!
    • I know I know, I just meant - all together, back from the originals.
      • Michael Power
        AHAHA got ya! ;D
  • TheOct8pus
    Lens flares in the Millennium Falcon shot!!
    • Jon Odishaw
      I swear to god dude....
    • Rock n Rollllll
      I dont know why everyones crying about the flares. I think they're cool. People with sensitive eyes need to watch something else that doesnt include CG.
      • TheOct8pus
        The lens flares are really cool looking. I guess the "issue" is that JJ LOVES the lens flares and uses them way too much. I don't think he does it consciously either. There are literally 721 lens flares in the first Star Trek movie and 826 lens flares in "Into Darkness". That's a shitload of lens flares.
        • Jon Odishaw
          Yep, i dont mind them but even hes has admitted that its getting out of hand. He could get away with it in Star Trek because he was bringing star trek to a whole new generation. whereas star wars has avid fans of all ages and he simply cant fuck around with it. Id be okay with a few lightsaber lens flares.
          • TheOct8pus
            I never thought of lightsaber lens flares....maybe he could do a couple...
  • Ricardo_PT
    I'm not a fan of JJ Abrams, but this got me pumped! And I loved that sith, it's about time we see some variation on the light sabers.
    • redtie
      If you're typing about the light saber's light rawness, totally agree! If you're typing about the ridiculous T handle, no thank you.
      • Ricardo_PT
        lol, I'm talking about both šŸ˜› I don't care if it isn't practical, it looks amazing.
  • petermccormack
    Nailed it...mind blown...
  • TheOct8pus
    Looks amazing. I know it's just a teaser, but I want more!!! I hate how JJ creates so much anticipation. He's the worst cocktease on earth!!
  • TheOct8pus
    The Millennium Falcon is still the most badass ship in the galaxy.
  • David Diaz
    I'm thinking there will be a different trailer shown in the theater this weekend. As much as I loved the few glimpses we had and the tone is amazing, I want to see shots of the original trilogy characters and I'm betting the trailer in the theater will deliver that.
    • Wampa Clown
      Nope. The trailer in the theater is the same as this one.
      • David Diaz
        Really? You saw it? That's a bit of a bummer. Figure they would have saved putting it on the web until after this weekend since they were hyping up this weekend. Oh well.
  • Nielsen700
    This is so unreal.
  • David Diaz
    Man I love the rawness of light in that red lightsaber. Feels more evil. And the shots of the Falcon and X-Wings are just gorgeous.
    • redtie
      You just made me watch that clip like 10 times.
      • Jon Odishaw
        ive watched it about 12 times and will watch it another twelve today at least.
  • TheOct8pus
    It's a soccer ball
    • Yeah... I heard there's a sponsorship deal in place with World Cup 2018.
      • redtie
        FIFA: light side or dark side?
        • Dark side, wonder if they used slave labour. :-(
      • TheOct8pus
        This scene was shot in Qatar
    • redtie
      For some reason, I did not find this new droid ridiculous. I think that means I'm excited.
      • theslayer5150
        Looks like the comic relief has been teased lol.
    • DaNorb
      It the new model. R0L2!
  • Zack Snyder
    This is how you make a teaser! The Jurassic World people should take note.
    • Ryan
      but the Pan trailer was good, right? RIGHT!?
      • Jon Odishaw
        Meh
        • Ryan
          you're dead to me
          • Jon Odishaw
            hahaha Im still anticipating a strong film from Joe Wright, but the trailer didnt do it for me.
          • Ryan
            dead I say, DEAD!!!!
  • TheOct8pus
    What's going on here?
    • Jon Odishaw
      Haha when I first started watching I was thinking "oh great another joke trailer"
      • mooreworthy
        Yeah, it got me as well. I was like, Dammit, that's Kevin Hart!
    • Wampa Clown
      Boyega's character is a stormtrooper that goes AWOL after his squad brutally attacks a village during a night raid. In the trailer, that's his squad landing in the dropship. When he tries to protect an innocent villager, he is court martialed for treason and has to flee into the desert.
      • Ricardo_PT
        There's no need to describe every detail, please remain spoiler-free
      • TheOct8pus
        I hope you're telling the truth, because that's a badass subplot
    • DaNorb
      Isn't he the one in Spaceballs?
  • Szkari
    I AM IN!!!
  • Ivan. tih
    Why doe JJ has the need to ground every space opera he touches? There's a lot of space out there... But no... let's do it all on a planet you love. Aside of that.. looks pretty cool
    • Ryan
      IT'S A BLOODY TEASER!!!!
      • Ivan. tih
        AND A REALLY COOL ONE! But without STARs, just wars.
        • Ryan
          hahha
        • Ryan
          wars wars
    • Scopedog
      Not much you can do or show in 88 seconds....
  • ProjectionistHP
    This somehow has very unfinished feel to it. It somehow looked a bit cheap like a spoof... And than there's that falcon clip and that sith and and my god everything else that juiced me up big time!
    • redtie
      I can't stand how the Sith or dark side characters are portrayed. "That guy's bad because he's wearing black!" We don't know if the character in black is anything. Light saber color is just based upon crystal's not the type character.
      • ProjectionistHP
        Well. Star Wars has allways had very clear good vs bad theme with easily identifiable sides. Witch works nice in this sort of fairytales. If he has red light saber, you know his bad news. And his stance lacks honor and reeks of maleficent, he's def a sith.
  • Efterklang
    That first voice over sounds a lot like Cumberbatch
    • It does sound a bit like Cumby, but not quite.
    • theboyd
      At first I thought it was Harrison Ford. But towards the end, its unrecognizable as to who it is.
    • Wampa Clown
      It's Andy Serkis.
  • David Diaz
    This was posted in the IGN comments. Hilarious. And so it begins.
    • Jon Odishaw
      I fucking love the new design of the lightsaber but this is damn funny
      • David Diaz
        Yeah same here.

    • Sleek futuristic minimalism, ruined.
      • Jon Odishaw
        Guy who invented the first sword: "check out this thing I made" Guy who invented the second sword: "Thats cool but I took your idea and added these little extensions to protect your hand" First sword guy: "what? thats fucking stupid. you ruined it."
        • I always thought the lightsaber was closer to a samurai sword than a broadsword, bud the new addition surely would make it much more dangerous?
    • JIm
      thanks fucking hilarious!
  • HarryFiddleSticks
    Shouldn't Max von Sydow be added to the cast list?
    • Jon Odishaw
      yea or christopher plummer
      • HarryFiddleSticks
        I don't think Plummer was part of the cast
        • Jon Odishaw
          right I forgot he was actually in the movie, I thought we were naming people who should be.
  • Mr Chatterbox
    Loved that. There were some beautiful CG shots i.e. the tie fighters above water.
    • The Millennium Falcon chase camera scene was stunning!
    • DaNorb
      Those were X-wing's.
  • Nice FX effects we haven't seen the likes of. I'm glad Lucas is done in that with a fresh Force attached to these projects we might lose the Ewoks BS and go with a "R" rating type seriousness.
    • redtie
      I just want an "R" for rating type radical. "Guardians of the Galaxy" reminded me of how jaded I have been against fun movies.
  • TheOct8pus
    Tie fighters! Welcome back!
  • theslayer5150
    I'm digging the light saber...or, is that a light broadsword???
  • cooper
    Really like the updated stormtrooper uniforms, those caught my eye in their brief look. Gotta say though, the trailer looked a little too choppy for me to get too excited yet with still a year until the release.
    • TheOct8pus
      The choppiness is really annoying. But that's one way JJ creates tension, by showing you tiny snippets and lots of darkness.
    • theslayer5150
      Yes, that too. Modern Stormtroopers, yet not bastardized...still a classic look to them.
  • Starship Enterprise of Millennium Falcon?
    • TheOct8pus
      Falcon. Hands down.
  • Chris Groves
    I never truly realized how much Star Wars meant to me until this trailer made me misty eyed. I was speechless after watching it.
    • D6
      I got goosebumps all over! šŸ˜€
  • Lagoya
    Am I the only one who thinks that lightsaber looks silly? It's dangerous to have those two beams right on the hilt, which could severely damage you if it touches your arm while you are fighting. Totally impractical
    • DaveLister_JMC
      Der.
    • Ryan
      I don't care, this is the first time theyve done more than just a colored beam of light as the actual CGI, it looks damn scary now.
      • David Diaz
        Exactly. I love how rough and jagged it looks and sounds.
    • David Diaz
      It's anything but impractical. It's a sword hilt. Very useful I would say.
    • Rauncor
      Have you considered that it could be used in two modes with hilt blades on and off leading to two different fighting styles.
  • cuckoozey
    I don't really get why the teaser starts with that goofy guy, but the rest of it looks pretty damned good...
    • David Diaz
      Well that goofy guy is one of the new main characters
      • cuckoozey
        Wow, huh? Thanks.
        • cg
          Goofy? He looks distressed to me, probably should wait until you see the scene in the context of the rest of the film
          • Jon Odishaw
            Upon reflection goofy probably isnt the right word but it is a strange introduction to this new star wars world.
        • David Diaz
          No problem. If you've never seen John Boyega in anything, check out Attack the Block. Fun British sci-fi film.
          • cuckoozey
            I actually did see that, guess I didn't recognize him from it...
          • David Diaz
            Yeah he's the main character. He also had a small part in the latest season of 24.
  • mooreworthy
    Goosebumps, I actually got goosebumps.
    • JJi is the best
      I think my underwear got pregnant!!!
      • mooreworthy
        The Force is strong on you.
  • Steven
    I hope Han charged Lando for that spanky new rectangle dish on the Falcon.
  • ion677
    All we saw was basically a special effects reel. Need more from a trailer to get excited. At this point Jurassic World looks better.
    • Ryan
      keep in mind this is very much a "Teaser", while jurrasic world was more along the lines of a traditional trailer.
      • Jon Odishaw
        Yes but I felt they still kept a lot from us
        • JC
          It's over a year away so it's not really that surprising.
          • Jon Odishaw
            I was referring to the Jurassic world teaser. I mean they really didnt show us anything we didnt know or expect.
          • Ryan
            motha fu**ing TRAINED RAPTORS!!!
          • Jon Odishaw
            Well yea but they didnt explicitly say they were trained raptors. We think that based off rumours/assumptions.
    • Have Hope
      Jurassic World looks WORSE than trash
      • ErrorSapiens
        Your opinion looks like , oh wait.. šŸ˜‰ You get the point
    • Really, when they invented the 'net, they had really good intent in mind but no one could've anticipated the worst misfortune of them all: Rubbish internet comments. ion677=twat
    • Scopedog
      Aren't most teasers/trailers for SF and fantasy films "special effects reels" anyway?
    • Mat
      well Jurassic World was a trailer and not a teaser.. so i'd say wait till you had something to actually compare
    • ColtNoir
      The term "teaser" is lost on you, eh?
  • Antonio
    This looks like a horrible sci-fi movie
    • Ryan
      you took a selfie with a DSLR
      • Jeff Prioleau
        LMAO
    • Either your comment is meant to be kitsch or ironic, or you just evaluated an entire film based on less than 90 seconds of actual footage. The first possibility would make you somewhat intelligent. The second would make you an imbecile.
    • JJi is the best
      You look gay posing in the mirror like that.
    • ErrorSapiens
      +100 for best fish and troll smell! You really know how to get clicks, you work in advertising? šŸ˜€
  • red5RE .
    In the german version of the teaser the voice-over is dubbed with the regular sync-voice of Benedict Cumberbatch. For me the english version sounds like Cumberbatch as well.
  • JIm
    haters will be haters. how can any move ever live up to anyones idiotic expectations these days is beyond me. Love the Xwing fighters over the water shot. fucking cool. I hear Mickey Mouse is gonna make a cameo appearance!!
    • JJi is the best
      Well put my man!!!
    • Scopedog
      Well said. (Don't know about Mickey's cameo, but you made me laugh!)
  • Jose Segura
    This is going to be so Awesome! Reminds me of my childhood when I saw Episode 4, 5, and 6. Can't wait.
    • Same here. Feels like the Star Wars we knew and loved, doesn't it?
    • JJi is the best
      Amen brother!!!
  • There isn't much one can determine from this teaser, save one thing: it truly feels like the Star Wars universe we once loved from long ago. I enjoyed seeing the new cast members. I also enjoyed seeing an old friend in the Falcon. I'm also fully prepared to laugh at all the story-line rumors and speculation that will rise from this teaser that will later be false. I will also snicker at the hundreds of hours people will put into a frame by frame analysis searching for eater eggs that don't exist and evaluating what's happening in the background of every shot. May the force be with us all.
    • JJi is the best
      Here's to snickering!!!
  • JJi is the best
    I'm saying it again... I'm still trying to figure out why people are complaining about the lightsaber... are you kidding me, that thing is BAD ASS!!!! Look at that intense blade!!! And the little side sabers are cool as shit. The purpose of them?? Who gives a shit!! They are awesome. After watching this trailer a couple dozen times I see the whole sword and it reminds me of one of those big ass knight swords from Game of Thrones!! My friend thinks the dude talking sounds like Benedict Cumberbatch... here's hoping he is a surprise character and the sith we see!! That would be TITS!!! THANK YOU DISNEY AND THANK YOU JJ!!!!!
    • Xerxexx
      Agreed!
    • Lagoya
      I give a shit, I think it's stupid and impractical. From a usability point of view having those small blades on the hilt will most probably cut your own arm off while you wield it around. Having to constantly think about how you are holding it so as not to damage yourself while fighting will be a handicap. If they were angled at 45 degrees towards the main beam then maybe it would be a bit more practical, but being perpendicular to the handle you will be disadvantaged when up against a foe with a regular lightsaber. It's like one of those Gillete razors with 5 blades when 2 blades are fine.
      • Payne by name
        Unfortunately what it demonstrates is 'coolness' over practicality. The makers are clearly more interested in securing ooohs and aaahs from the hordes of zealous fans rather than telling a decent cohesive yarn. Forget that it doesn't make sense, just look how cool it looks. No different really than obliterating your view with ridiculous lens flare or tiresome shakey cam. Sizzle over substance.
        • Trey
          So you seen the movie and you know how its used? I didn't think so, so comment on things you actually know about
          • Payne by name
            What I know is what I feel. And that's what a trailer does, elicit an emotive response to encourage you to see something based on what you've seen or at least form an opinion on whether you want to see it. Given the director's previous usage of lens flare and shakey cam and use of cool stuff to paper over a weak story (a la Star Trek) I believe I'm forming an opinion with a solid agenda. Just as the trailer obtained a reaction that encourages you to piss your pants and swoop on others who dare voice an opinion counter to yours.
      • Scopedog
        So....when did you join the Jedi order? Why not wait to see the film to get an idea about how this new lightsaber works? And a similar lightsaber has already been shown in the SW comics.
      • kitano0
        Hey, keep my Gillette Fusion Pro-Glide out of this!!!
      • ErrorSapiens
        How do you know they are blades? They are on for like 2 secs.. I`m actually leaning more towards some kind of exhaust /overload pipes.. cause this guy/or the guy/gal who made the saber isnt probably good at it..but engineering skills comes a long way šŸ˜‰
        • Jeff Prioleau
          That's exactly what I thought when I first saw them.
      • David Diaz
        If hilts got in the way of people using swords, they wouldn't have been built that way for hundreds of years. They are designed for blocking so I'm sure we'll see that in this Sith's style of combat.
        • Brian Sleider
          Yeh, but when a steel quillon clips your fore arm during a swing or twirl, your arm is not cleaved and cauterized.
          • David Diaz
            Yeah but dude, we are talking about a Sith Lord here. They are masters with their weapon. They aren't going to accidentally hurt themselves with it. If that's the case there should be a lot Jedi and Sith with missing limbs from all their light saber use.
          • Brian Sleider
            This is not a trained force user, IMO, this is a force adept person. In no way a master, a lord only by default. To be clear I think the weapon is sweet and do not mind the cross-guard, AT ALL.
          • David Diaz
            True, probably not a master. But I just figure since every Jedi or Sith create their own lightsaber, he or she included a hilt for a reason. And since it looks like some thought was put into how raw the light looks and sounds, the same thought was put into why the hilt is there, rather than it just looking cool and different.
          • Brian Sleider
            I hope so as well, I hope JJ didnt just say "well it needs to look cooler than the old ones" (which is does). I think it is a defensive measure to account for poor saber skills.
  • Xerxexx
    I am truly giddy!
    • Scopedog
      Same here--looks sharp, love the X-Wings and the Falcon's aerobatics...of course we gotta wait a whole darned year! Hope it's worth it.
      • Xerxexx
        All of it is amazing. Can't wait to see this new trio in action.
  • Xerxexx
    Haven't been able to post lately! What a great way to return!
  • Scopedog
    Gotta love GOG--snagged X-WING from them too.
  • Have I watched this thing too many times or does this guy look like Oscar Isaac?
    • It is him.
    • cooper
      Is it just me or does the helmet look a little weird? I'm ok with updates and think the stormtrooper helmet looked cool but something about this one just doesn't feel right to me.
  • Trey Wilson
    A black storm trooper? That's racist.
  • Andrew
    When I saw the Millenium Falcon a huge smile ran across my face and I started crying. I felt a great sense of joy and intensity.
  • Dimius
    What's with all the lightsaber hate? Most of the Jedi and the Sith construct their personal lightsabers. Very few just happen to acquire one, but even if they did I'm sure they learn to maintenance it and modify it. Jedi and Sith also train in a variety of fighting styles suitable to them, and they're lightsabers reflect those styles; hell they even enhance those styles. Basically, don't sweat over this Sith guy here because trust me, he knows how to use that lightsaber.
  • DAVIDPD
    Abram's touch is all over this, and it LOOKS FABULOUS. Pumped. So pumped.
  • Terry Craig
    That bass at the end though Plus that insane Falcon chase shot. Must've felt great seeing the trailer in a theatre
  • Scott
    Considering the age of Leia, Luke and Han in this film, and considering that the Rebels won in the last movie.....why are there still TIE fighters and Stormtroopers. Little disappointed that he's bringing the Empire back, instead of something original.
    • Brian Sleider
      Not only that, how did Empire remnants have resources to redesign and mas produce new Storm Trooper armor.
  • CptGrimsdale
    It looks like a typical Disney movie for kids, and for mindless drones, who will pay anything at the cinemas, that is associated with Star Wars. I had thought there would be less CGI in it and lo an behold we see images...?
    • Josh Avery
      Bro. It's a teaser. We don't know that yet.
    • Dude, im handing you the Queer award for the absolute best mass Trolling yet. Good job.
  • avconsumer2
    Nerdgasm. Perfect teaser. Just enough to get me all wound up, but no giant spoilers. lol @ the haters & trolls. Really brought them out of the woodwork.
    • Scopedog
      "Really brought them out of the woodwork." Sadly, it did. IMDB's comment section for this looks like it was taken over by the KKK.
      • avconsumer2
        Ugh. Sickening. Strange that you don't really notice until it's an IP close to your heart.
  • MLTC
    Did anyone notice any lens flares? I didn't.
    • TheOct8pus
      Watch it again. There's a major lens flare during the Millennium Falcon barrel roll scene...
  • Josh Avery
    I find it funny that people are giving the trailer bad comments. IT'S A TEASER. Don't get your panties in a bunch. The movie won't come out till a year and they'll have plenty on trailers to come out.
    • Scopedog
      They can't help it....
  • shiboleth
    I can write and go on saying whatever I want, but eventually, I'll watch it... It's part of us, for decades now, so, to use punchline of its true adversary, I have to say: "The resistance is futile."...
  • Brian Sleider
    I cannot get over how corny the first 2 scenes of the trailer are. The first one is out of a cheese ball horror and the second out of some shitty pixar movie. The rest of the trailer is Mint. I cannot watch the the Dogfight at the end with out smiling and giggling. But the opening.....terrible.
