Star Wars: The Force Awakens Full Trailer Breakdown
The complete trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted final night during halftime of the Monday Night Soccer broadcast, and managed to keep pleasure excessive with out giving freely an excessive amount of of the plot before the December 18 launch.
The trailer has some notable additions to what we already knew about The Force Awakens from earlier formally-released content material, and does slightly bit more world-constructing for the world of Star Wars after Return of the Jedi.
That is Rey (Daisy Ridley) in her full-on scavenger gear. She’s climbing round a big wreck of some remnant of the Empire. A downed Star Destroyer, possibly.
She repels down, droid-much less, but then pops up in the subsequent shot with BB-8, world’s cutest ball droid, rolling alongside her in desert #SquadGoals.
“Who are you ” asks a voice that is probably Lupita Nyong’o’s character Maz Kanata. “I’m nobody,” replies Rey, probably being coy.
Rey lives on the desert planet of Jakku where she is a scavenger scraping by on what will be discovered in the sand. A shot of her staring wistfully at a ship taking off from the planet suggests she wouldn’t thoughts getting off Jakku, however something is keeping her there.
Elsewhere within the galaxy, the primary Order assembles. The first Order is what the Empire grew to become after they had been banished to the Outer Rim of the galaxy. Now they’ve Starkiller Base, described on the official website as “An ice planet converted into a stronghold of the first Order and armed with a fiercely destructive new weapon capable of destroying entire star systems.” On the entrance you can also make out Domhnall Gleeson’s character Basic Hux standing on the stage in front of the troopers.
John Boyega debuts his American accent as Finn, a shocked-looking Stormtrooper, as he says, “I was raised to do one factor, however I’ve got nothing to fight for.”
The TIE-fighter we see spinning away from a Star Destroyer in space has a crimson stripe on it, designating it as a Special Forces TIE-Fighter (one thing we know due to the Hasbro toys which have been introduced). Earlier photographs from the movie show Finn in Stormtrooper garb by the wreckage of a Particular Forces TIE, so that’s presumably him within the crashing one.
Someday later, Finn has stripped the white components of his Stormtrooper uniform off (and has his jacket, which can also be one seen on a Poe Dameron toy, so possibly it’s Poe’s jacket that he lends to Finn) and appears down over a Jakku settlement, most likely the place he crosses paths with Rey.
“Nothing will stand in our means,” says the distorted voice of Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) as he appears out the window at what’s each a JJ Abrams’ lens flare and likewise maybe the firing of a brilliant weapon. It seems the new Starkiller Base weapon (possibly the “new Death Star” thing on the poster) uses purple to blow things up, as we’ll see later in the trailer.
“I will end what you started,” the Kylo Ren mask-voice continues.
And we cut to the melted helmet of Darth Vader. Is Kylo Ren speaking to the Darth Vader helmet in a soliloquy moment, or is this a line Kylo Ren says to someone else that is utilized long sleeve flash shirt to Darth Vader’s mask here so we get the place the character is coming from We know JJ Abrams has stated Kylo is obsessed with Vader, so maybe he does discuss to the mask.
We see Kylo Ren utilizing the Force on Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) to both torture him or cause him to have a imaginative and prescient. What we cut away to is a couple of frames of that crimson super weapon explosion blowing up some trees.
RIP timber. Star Wars: Episode I via Episode VII.
The John Williams music really kicks in and we see the Millennium Falcon outmaneuvering two TIE Fighters amongst wreckage on Jakku. “Those stories about what occurred,” says Rey.
We meet up with Finn and Rey and they are aboard the Falcon with Han Solo himself, looking at some sort of hologram star chart.
“It’s true…all of it.The Darkish aspect, the Jedi…they’re actual,” says Han Solo, the man who would take a blaster by his aspect over the Power when he first happened across it. Han Solo is one heck of a character to put into the sensible Obi-Wan slot within the movie. One thing occurred to make him a believer in the Force although it appears legendary a mere 30 years after Return of the Jedi.
Then, boom, into gentle velocity we go, however from the reverse angle from the cockpit view we normally see.
These guys standing within the rain amongst a bunch of our bodies are the Knights of Ren. The latter a part of Kylo Ren’s title is only a title, and that’s his helmet and crossguard lightsaber at the middle of the above nonetheless. The opposite six have different helmets and melee weapons, but not lightsabers.
Some Stormtroopers put together to defend some burning rubble from the oncoming X-Wings which can be flying in over the water.
Finn and Poe see each other long sleeve flash shirt at the Resistance base. Presumably, these two last saw each other escaping a Star Destroyer earlier within the film when the jacket Finn is sporting here is exchanged, but possibly not considering the weird look Finn offers Poe after this second.
Again at the positioning of the X-Wing assault on the rubble city, a TIE fighter will get blown up as we see smoke and flames on the land under.
The rubble above might have as soon as been this, some kind of temple or hideout that Han Solo leads Finn, Rey, and BB-8 to. Many a sharp-eyed Star Wars fan has identified the Mandalorian image on a flag in direction of the top of the display screen. Fan favourite character Boba Fett wore Mandalorian armor, and the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated collection was the final time we heard in regards to the plant.
Kylo Ren’s command ship lands amidst a city below siege.
Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) walks amidst an assault on a village. When you imagine the sounds her Hasbro-made toy mask makes, Phasma commands the troopers, Finn amongst them.
Additionally within the flame raid, Kylo Ren brings his lightsbaer down violently on something (or someone) we don’t see, as we cut to Rey looking very distressed.
Some type of leather-based jacket long sleeve flash shirt in the foreground doesn’t give us any hints as to which of the many jacket-clad characters is in jeopardy.
Han, Rey, and Chewie (whose arm has been damage) are seemingly captured, but one thing happens that makes Han’s jaw drop just above them. An unexpected rescue
“The Force…It’s calling to you,” says probably Lupita Nyong’o’s character. BB-eight (an astromech droid, like R2-D2) sees an incoming fleet of TIE Fighters coming in over Starkiller Base, the snow planet/weapon.
Here’s the trench, paying homage to the Dying Star trench from the first Star Wars. Judging from the poster, it could also be the place on the planet’s equator the place it splits open. Both way, there’s one other in-ambiance dogfight occurring.
Stormtroopers assault! Not especially notable for plot, however there are the blue lens flares that present up in JJ Abrams initiatives.
More often than not in the trailer, good guys are represented by the color blue and unhealthy guys the color crimson. This seems to be the only exception, Daisy Ridley firing a blaster on the jungle planet (it will likely be known as Takodana, although that’s not within the trailer) that reflects pink in her eyes. Is that this a Darkish Aspect moment
An X-Wing targets a single trooper on the bottom. It’s unique to The Force Awakens to see X-Wings and TIE fighters engaging in floor fight on a planet. Back within the Empire Strikes Again, the different locations got their own autos (Speeders for Hoth and Cloud Vehicles for Bespin).
A first Order ship blows up or blows inward. You’ll be able to see the mouse droid in the underside of the picture, and the angular window shape suggests it is a primary Order ship.
Our first take a look at Carrie Fisher’s return as Princess Leia, and she’s having an emotional second with Han. Fans will drive themselves crazy guessing what it’s that has Leia so upset.
Finn faces a maskless Kylo Ren in the snow with Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber (the blue one that got misplaced when Luke’s hand was cut off in Empire Strikes Back). The above nonetheless is the final body of motion, as Finn’s confident stare will get lost in Kylo Ren’s homemade pink lightsaber that looks like it’s manufactured from fire.
And quietly, Maz Kanata finishes “(The Force…It’s calling to you)… just let it in.” Then, with the quiet notes of the theme we’d affiliate with Luke Skywalker — an absent celebration from what’s presupposed to be the ultimate trailer for The Force Awakens — it ends.
No face shot of the returning Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, who’s in the film. Although knowing how the Star Wars advertising has been executed to date, “where’s Luke ” is exactly the query they need us asking.
