Disney has released a brand new – and much darker – trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The minute-long clip was posted on the Star Wars Facebook page today (November 26), and this time, the action revolves around the movie’s masked and hooded villain Kylo Ren, played by Adam Driver. Check it out below.
The new trailer begins with a voice asking: ‘There has been an awakening…have you felt it?’
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set for release in Edinburgh – and nationwide – cinemas on December 17, and in the US a day later.
It all takes place 30 years after the events of Return Of The Jedi. The film’s script was written by JJ Abrams, Toy Story 3 writer Michael Arndt and Star Wars franchise veteran Lawrence Kasdan.
Alongside the returning trio of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, the film’s cast also includes Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow and Andy Serkis.
The storyline of the movie follows the Resistance’s effort to return the lightsaber to its rightful owner. But exactly who that might be is not yet known. Some Star Wars fanatics have suggested that a certain Luke Skywalker lies in wait at the end of the movie.
As CinemaBlend notes: “This is all based on the unconfirmed rumours that have made the rounds. The fan essentially places them in an order that makes sense and, using some conjecture and knowledge of these movies to link them together, creates a potential narrative”.
All will be revealed when the film arrives in UK cinemas this Christmas.
