The force awakens, ladies and gentlemen. After the reveal of the new poster for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Walt Disney Pictures and LucasFilm has bestowed us with the new trailer for the long-awaited, highly anticipated new film. The trailer can be viewed in the player below.
Set 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, the Force Awakens will feature a brand new generation of star-traveling smugglers, sinister Sith lords, princesses, high-tech bounty hunters and (of course) a new slew of all-powerful Jedi warriors.
J.J. Abrams directs this continuation of the much beloved (fervently so in some cases) sci-fi film series. Star Wars: The Force Awakens stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Max Von Sydow. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk are producing with Tommy Harper and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers. The screenplay is by Lawrence Kasdan & J.J. Abrams and Michael Arndt, and will open theaters everywhere on December 18, 2015.
