Watch: Fan-Made Contemporary Trailer for 'The Empire Strikes Back'
Here's some fun and hype for all you Star Wars fans hungry for something new now that the title for the next chapter in the saga has been revealed. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is almost exactly a year and a month away from release, and more rumblings of a teaser trailer arriving before the end of the year have surfaced. Badass Digest says to expect it sometime in the next four to five weeks (they also have a rumored description if you're interested), so we're anxiously awaiting confirmation of this rumor. In the meantime, a fan has crafted an awesome contemporary trailer for The Empire Strikes Back to check out. Watch it!
It's a pretty well done trailer, but one of the bigger issues is that it seems to give away a whole lot of the film. From Han Solo and company encountering Darth Vader on Cloud City to the revelation of another potential savior and more, this shows too much from the film. That certainly makes it a lot like trailers we see for movies today, but at the same time, maybe that's only because we're familiar with the movie itself. And for those interested, the music throughout is from Michael Giacchino's score for 2009's Star Trek. Of course, that's bound to be different in the real film since composer John Williams is back to provide the score.
With production now complete and the December 18th, 2015 release date confirmed by Disney, Star Wars mania isn't slowing down at all, and we're evn more anxious for some kind of first look or teaser trailer. We've got just over a year to wait and there's no question at all that plenty more adventures are on the way. We'll be right here to keep you updated on all the Star Wars goods through 2015 and beyond.
