The first teaser trailer for the highly anticipated next “Star Wars” installment, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has been gloriously released… and it is definitely intriguing.
Here are four teaser-y things we’re excited about!
Although none of the familiar faces (Han, Leia, Luke) appear in this teaser, we do get to see new cast member John Boyega (bad guy?), who pops up wearing a Stormtrooper uniform and later, newcomer Daisy Ridley (Leia and Han’s daughter?), flying a small aircraft across the desert.
A New R2?
There’s a shot of droid that could be a new and improved R2D2!
The Dark Side
As the narrator announces, the Force has indeed been awakened… and something evil is lurking in the forest with a badass-looking light saber. Who is it?
The Millennium Falcon
Then, the trailer ends with the shot EVERYONE wants to see… the Millennium Falcon maneuvered over the desert plains. Thanks, director J.J. Abrams!
The teaser can also be seen in 30 theaters across North America beginning today. Following this weekend, the teaser can be seen in theaters around the world this December. Check out StarWars.com for a complete list of theaters.
