New Star Wars Trailer Reveals Original Trilogy Cast!

4/16/2015 Stephen Colbert 0 Comments


Here's the new trailer for your eyeballs.  The trailer opens on the same desert planet that we now know to be Jakku, but this time, instead of Finn in stormtrooper getup, we see a downed X-Wing, a cloud of dust following a speeder, and as the camera continues to pan, a downed Star Destroyer.

Then we get a voiceover from Luke Skywalker, from Return of the Jedi: "The Force is Strong in my family.  My father has it, I have it, my sister has it, you have it, too."  It's edited slightly, but it's definitely the same audio.  It still reveals that Luke is likely training a new Jedi at some point during the film.

The voiceover is accompanied by 3 different shots of Vader's burnt mask, R2-D2 with a mechanical handed companion (it could be Luke, but his hand has fake flesh over it), and a lightsaber being handed to someone.

The rest of the trailer is comprised of several actions shots reveals, such as Kylo Ren's mask, Stormtroopers with a new logo reminiscent of the old school Imperial insignia, new TIE fighter designs, and a Chrome Trooper.

The whole thing is wrapped up perfectly with Han and Chewie looking off camera, when Han says "Chewie, we're home."

Check it out below and let me know what you think in the comments.  Was there anything you wanted to see that they're still not showing?
