The galaxy shook Monday night as the third (and presumably final) trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was unveiled.
For starters, we finally have a trailer with plot elements (and how) in contrast to the cryptic nature of the previous two.
Han Solo and Princess Leia (reprised by Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher) look weary as the battle between good and evil will continue with the latest Sith leader Kylo Ren’s (Adam Driver) Dark Side army in honor of Darth Vader’s memory. Given these facts, it’s plausible that Ren either does not know or refuses to believe Vader’s final act was a redeeming one. Regardless, the galactic power couple of Solo and Leia will more likely serve as mentors to our main protagonists (and latest Jedi) Rey and Finn (Daisy Ridley and John Boyega).
However, there’s no trace of Luke Skywalker (who Mark Hamill is reprising), leading us to believe he may be returning in the form of flashbacks or voice work.
Excitement, breathtaking visuals and suspense permeate the trailer – letting our imaginations run wild. A nice touch of Stormtrooper combat, a neat inside shot of the X-Wing and the almighty lightsaber dual make your childhood memories fondly flow back to you. Despite their ages, it looks like Han and Chewie (reprised by Peter Mayhew) are back for one last hurrah this Christmas.
For the love of God, please don’t let this movie suck.
