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,

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2014

2

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!

Michael Power on Nov 28, 2014

I know I know, I just meant - all together, back from the originals.

Alex Billington on Nov 28, 2014

AHAHA got ya! ;D

Michael Power on Nov 28, 2014

Lens flares in the Millennium Falcon shot!!

TheOct8pus on Nov 28, 2014

6

I swear to god dude....

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2014

7

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.

Rock n Rollllll on Dec 1, 2014

8

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.

TheOct8pus on Dec 1, 2014

9

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.

Jon Odishaw on Dec 2, 2014

10

I never thought of lightsaber lens flares....maybe he could do a couple...

TheOct8pus on Dec 2, 2014

11

Here's a video tallying them up... http://youtu.be/wYgG9MhV5Q0

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.

Ricardo_PT on Nov 28, 2014

13

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.

redtie on Nov 28, 2014

14

lol, I'm talking about both šŸ˜› I don't care if it isn't practical, it looks amazing.

Ricardo_PT on Nov 28, 2014

15

Nailed it...mind blown...

petermccormack on Nov 28, 2014

16

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 on Nov 28, 2014

17

The Millennium Falcon is still the most badass ship in the galaxy.

TheOct8pus on Nov 28, 2014

18

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.

David Diaz on Nov 28, 2014

19

Nope. The trailer in the theater is the same as this one.

Wampa Clown on Nov 28, 2014

20

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.

David Diaz on Nov 28, 2014

21

This is so unreal.

Nielsen700 on Nov 28, 2014

22

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.

David Diaz on Nov 28, 2014

23

You just made me watch that clip like 10 times.

redtie on Nov 28, 2014

24

ive watched it about 12 times and will watch it another twelve today at least.

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2014

25

It's a soccer ball

TheOct8pus on Nov 28, 2014

26

Yeah... I heard there's a sponsorship deal in place with World Cup 2018.

Movie Bear on Nov 28, 2014

27

FIFA: light side or dark side?

redtie on Nov 28, 2014

28

Dark side, wonder if they used slave labour. šŸ™

Carpola on Nov 28, 2014

29

This scene was shot in Qatar

TheOct8pus on Nov 28, 2014

30

For some reason, I did not find this new droid ridiculous. I think that means I'm excited.

redtie on Nov 28, 2014

31

Looks like the comic relief has been teased lol.

theslayer5150 on Nov 28, 2014

32

It the new model. R0L2!

DaNorb on Nov 29, 2014

33

This is how you make a teaser! The Jurassic World people should take note.

Zack Snyder on Nov 28, 2014

34

but the Pan trailer was good, right? RIGHT!?

Ryan on Nov 28, 2014

35

Meh

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2014

36

you're dead to me

Ryan on Nov 28, 2014

37

hahaha Im still anticipating a strong film from Joe Wright, but the trailer didnt do it for me.

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2014

38

dead I say, DEAD!!!!

Ryan on Nov 28, 2014

39

What's going on here?

TheOct8pus on Nov 28, 2014

40

Haha when I first started watching I was thinking "oh great another joke trailer"

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2014

41

Yeah, it got me as well. I was like, Dammit, that's Kevin Hart!

mooreworthy on Nov 28, 2014

42

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.

Wampa Clown on Nov 28, 2014

43

There's no need to describe every detail, please remain spoiler-free

Ricardo_PT on Nov 28, 2014

44

I hope you're telling the truth, because that's a badass subplot

TheOct8pus on Nov 28, 2014

45

Isn't he the one in Spaceballs?

DaNorb on Nov 29, 2014

46

I AM IN!!!

Szkari on Nov 28, 2014

47

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

Ivan. tih on Nov 28, 2014

48

IT'S A BLOODY TEASER!!!!

Ryan on Nov 28, 2014

49

AND A REALLY COOL ONE! But without STARs, just wars.

Ivan. tih on Nov 28, 2014

50

hahha

Ryan on Nov 28, 2014

51

wars wars

Ryan on Nov 28, 2014

52

Not much you can do or show in 88 seconds....

Scopedog on Nov 30, 2014

53

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!

ProjectionistHP on Nov 28, 2014

54

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.

redtie on Nov 28, 2014

55

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.

ProjectionistHP on Nov 28, 2014

56

That first voice over sounds a lot like Cumberbatch

Efterklang on Nov 28, 2014

57

It does sound a bit like Cumby, but not quite.

Movie Bear on Nov 28, 2014

58

At first I thought it was Harrison Ford. But towards the end, its unrecognizable as to who it is.

theboyd on Nov 28, 2014

59

It's Andy Serkis.

Wampa Clown on Nov 28, 2014

60

This was posted in the IGN comments. Hilarious. And so it begins.

David Diaz on Nov 28, 2014

61

I fucking love the new design of the lightsaber but this is damn funny

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2014

62

Yeah same here.

David Diaz on Nov 28, 2014

63

64

Sleek futuristic minimalism, ruined.

Carpola on Nov 28, 2014

65

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."

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2014

66

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?

Carpola on Nov 28, 2014

67

thanks fucking hilarious!

JIm on Nov 28, 2014

68

Shouldn't Max von Sydow be added to the cast list?

HarryFiddleSticks on Nov 28, 2014

69

yea or christopher plummer

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2014

70

I don't think Plummer was part of the cast

HarryFiddleSticks on Nov 28, 2014

71

right I forgot he was actually in the movie, I thought we were naming people who should be.

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2014

72

Loved that. There were some beautiful CG shots i.e. the tie fighters above water.

Mr Chatterbox on Nov 28, 2014

73

The Millennium Falcon chase camera scene was stunning!

John Guymon on Nov 28, 2014

74

Those were X-wing's.

DaNorb on Nov 29, 2014

75

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.

John Guymon on Nov 28, 2014

76

I just want an "R" for rating type radical. "Guardians of the Galaxy" reminded me of how jaded I have been against fun movies.

redtie on Nov 28, 2014

77

Tie fighters! Welcome back!

TheOct8pus on Nov 28, 2014

78

The game was just recently re-released. http://www.gog.com/game/star_wars_tie_fighter_special_edition

redtie on Nov 28, 2014

79

I'm digging the light saber...or, is that a light broadsword???

theslayer5150 on Nov 28, 2014

80

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.

cooper on Nov 28, 2014

81

The choppiness is really annoying. But that's one way JJ creates tension, by showing you tiny snippets and lots of darkness.

TheOct8pus on Nov 28, 2014

82

Yes, that too. Modern Stormtroopers, yet not bastardized...still a classic look to them.

theslayer5150 on Nov 28, 2014

83

Starship Enterprise of Millennium Falcon?

Joker's hideout on Nov 28, 2014

84

Falcon. Hands down.

TheOct8pus on Dec 2, 2014

85

I never truly realized how much Star Wars meant to me until this trailer made me misty eyed. I was speechless after watching it.

Chris Groves on Nov 28, 2014

86

I got goosebumps all over! šŸ˜€

D6 on Nov 28, 2014

87

I don't really get why the teaser starts with that goofy guy, but the rest of it looks pretty damned good...

cuckoozey on Nov 28, 2014

88

Well that goofy guy is one of the new main characters

David Diaz on Nov 28, 2014

89

Wow, huh? Thanks.

cuckoozey on Nov 28, 2014

90

Goofy? He looks distressed to me, probably should wait until you see the scene in the context of the rest of the film

cg on Nov 28, 2014

91

Upon reflection goofy probably isnt the right word but it is a strange introduction to this new star wars world.

Jon Odishaw on Dec 2, 2014

92

No problem. If you've never seen John Boyega in anything, check out Attack the Block. Fun British sci-fi film.

David Diaz on Nov 28, 2014

93

I actually did see that, guess I didn't recognize him from it...

cuckoozey on Nov 28, 2014

94

Yeah he's the main character. He also had a small part in the latest season of 24.

David Diaz on Nov 28, 2014

95

Goosebumps, I actually got goosebumps.

mooreworthy on Nov 28, 2014

96

I think my underwear got pregnant!!!

JJi is the best on Nov 28, 2014

97

The Force is strong on you.

mooreworthy on Nov 28, 2014

98

I hope Han charged Lando for that spanky new rectangle dish on the Falcon.

Steven on Nov 28, 2014

99

All we saw was basically a special effects reel. Need more from a trailer to get excited. At this point Jurassic World looks better.

ion677 on Nov 28, 2014

100

keep in mind this is very much a "Teaser", while jurrasic world was more along the lines of a traditional trailer.

Ryan on Nov 28, 2014

101

Yes but I felt they still kept a lot from us

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2014

102

It's over a year away so it's not really that surprising.

JC on Nov 28, 2014

103

I was referring to the Jurassic world teaser. I mean they really didnt show us anything we didnt know or expect.

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2014

104

motha fu**ing TRAINED RAPTORS!!!

Ryan on Nov 28, 2014

105

Well yea but they didnt explicitly say they were trained raptors. We think that based off rumours/assumptions.

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2014

106

Jurassic World looks WORSE than trash

Have Hope on Nov 28, 2014

107

Your opinion looks like , oh wait.. šŸ˜‰ You get the point

ErrorSapiens on Nov 30, 2014

108

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

Sascha Dikiciyan on Nov 29, 2014

109

Aren't most teasers/trailers for SF and fantasy films "special effects reels" anyway?

Scopedog on Nov 30, 2014

110

well Jurassic World was a trailer and not a teaser.. so i'd say wait till you had something to actually compare

Mat on Nov 30, 2014

111

The term "teaser" is lost on you, eh?

ColtNoir on Dec 2, 2014

112

This looks like a horrible sci-fi movie

Antonio on Nov 28, 2014

113

you took a selfie with a DSLR

Ryan on Nov 28, 2014

114

LMAO

Jeff Prioleau on Dec 18, 2014

115

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.

Quanah on Nov 28, 2014

116

You look gay posing in the mirror like that.

JJi is the best on Nov 28, 2014

117

+100 for best fish and troll smell! You really know how to get clicks, you work in advertising? šŸ˜€

ErrorSapiens on Nov 30, 2014

118

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.

red5RE . on Nov 28, 2014

119

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!!

JIm on Nov 28, 2014

120

Well put my man!!!

JJi is the best on Nov 28, 2014

121

Well said. (Don't know about Mickey's cameo, but you made me laugh!)

Scopedog on Nov 30, 2014

122

This is going to be so Awesome! Reminds me of my childhood when I saw Episode 4, 5, and 6. Can't wait.

Jose Segura on Nov 28, 2014

123

Same here. Feels like the Star Wars we knew and loved, doesn't it?

Quanah on Nov 28, 2014

124

Amen brother!!!

JJi is the best on Nov 28, 2014

125

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.

Quanah on Nov 28, 2014

126

Here's to snickering!!!

JJi is the best on Nov 28, 2014

127

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!!!!!

JJi is the best on Nov 28, 2014

128

Agreed!

Xerxexx on Nov 28, 2014

129

I am truly giddy!

Xerxexx on Nov 28, 2014

130

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.

Scopedog on Nov 28, 2014

131

All of it is amazing. Can't wait to see this new trio in action.

Xerxexx on Nov 29, 2014

132

Haven't been able to post lately! What a great way to return!

Xerxexx on Nov 28, 2014

133

Gotta love GOG--snagged X-WING from them too.

Scopedog on Nov 28, 2014

134

Have I watched this thing too many times or does this guy look like Oscar Isaac?

MUNKICLOUD on Nov 28, 2014

135

It is him.

Quanah on Nov 28, 2014

136

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.

cooper on Nov 29, 2014

137

A black storm trooper? That's racist.

Trey Wilson on Nov 28, 2014

138

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.

Andrew on Nov 28, 2014

139

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.

Dimius on Nov 29, 2014

140

Abram's touch is all over this, and it LOOKS FABULOUS. Pumped. So pumped.

DAVIDPD on Nov 29, 2014

141

That bass at the end though Plus that insane Falcon chase shot. Must've felt great seeing the trailer in a theatre

Terry Craig on Nov 29, 2014

142

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.

Scott on Nov 29, 2014

143

Not only that, how did Empire remnants have resources to redesign and mas produce new Storm Trooper armor.

Brian Sleider on Dec 2, 2014

144

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...?

CptGrimsdale on Nov 29, 2014

145

Bro. It's a teaser. We don't know that yet.

Josh Avery on Nov 29, 2014

146

Dude, im handing you the Queer award for the absolute best mass Trolling yet. Good job.

Sascha Dikiciyan on Nov 29, 2014

147

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.

avconsumer2 on Nov 29, 2014

148

"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.

Scopedog on Nov 30, 2014

149

Ugh. Sickening. Strange that you don't really notice until it's an IP close to your heart.

avconsumer2 on Nov 30, 2014

150

Did anyone notice any lens flares? I didn't.

MLTC on Nov 29, 2014

151

Watch it again. There's a major lens flare during the Millennium Falcon barrel roll scene...

TheOct8pus on Dec 2, 2014

152

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.

Josh Avery on Nov 29, 2014

153

They can't help it....

Scopedog on Nov 30, 2014

154

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."...

shiboleth on Dec 1, 2014

155

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.

Brian Sleider on Dec 2, 2014

MORE franchise slum MEN in CANS - - -going NOWHERE. BLEH
