You’ve seen the new poster and the new teasers, and really, you don’t need any more obstacles standing between yourself and the new and final full trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so I am just going to shut up now and let you get to it!
My trousers suddenly feel a little damp…
That’s a whole lot of awesome to take in, and I will be doing a detailed trailer breakdown tomorrow afternoon, but for now there are several highlights to talk about. We hear bad guy Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) speak for the first time and admit his, and his Knights of Ren’s obsession with Vader; we now have confirmation that the crashed TIE-Fighter with the red path was indeed piloted by ex-Stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega), who is also the person facing Kylo Ren in that snowy forest; it seems that what Luke, Han and Leia did to overthrow the Emperor have become almost myth in the last 30 years; and then there are all those incredible aerial dogfights that have left me now needing to change my underwear one more time!
And we still haven’t seen Luke Skywalker yet! Or have we…
