STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Teaser Trailer #2 Reveals Han & Chewie
So, are you pumped for Star Wars: The Force Awakens yet? If not, you will be. You will be...
A new two-minute teaser trailer for the film debuted today at Star Wars Celebration 2015 at the Anaheim Convention Center. In our newest look at Star Wars Episode VII, we finally get to see and hear some of the returning characters, including Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and everyone's favorite Wookiee, Chewbacca.
Opening up a a desert planet that may or may not be Tattooine, we hear the lovely sounds of John Williams' score and see a crashed Imperial Star Destroyer.
"The Force is strong in my family," Luke Skywalker begins in a voiceover, recalling his words from over thirty years ago in Return of the Jedi, as the severely-damaged helmet of Darth Vader is raised. "My father has it. I have it." A cloaked figure, presumably Luke, places his artificial hand on R2-D2 and then someone hands a young female a lightsaber. "My sister has it. You have that power, too."
A squadron of X-Wings soars over a river and then we see Daisy Ridley as Rey and John Boyega as Finn with ball droid BB-8 running from an explosion. The Sith known as Kylo Ren raises his lightsaber and Stormtroopers in new armor stand together in formation. A group of TIE fighters then attacks the Stormtroopers, hinting they're on the side of the New Republic.
The Millennium Falcon battles the TIE fighters on the planet that may or may not be Tattooine, as the familiar rumble of Harrison Ford's voice begins speaking. "Chewie...we're home," sans Han Solo as he and Chewbacca come into view aboard the Falcon and Chewbacca gives his approval.
Yes, we're home, all right. It's gonna be a long wait until Christmas.
Here's the trailer, thanks to Star Wars' official YouTube account...
