Straight from…Korea?
placeholder title

Star Wars: The Force Awakensis shaping up to be the most anticipated film of the year, which makes any new morsel of information about the space opera’s latest installment—from set photos to Han Solo’s return in last April’s teaser—cause for a full-blown meltdown from fans.

On Monday, a new international trailer (complete with Korean subtitles) inexplicably showed up on the Star Wars Korea YouTube channel. With foreign trailers an increasingly valuable source of narrative ephemera for die-hard fans (see: The Falcon's cameo in an international trailer for Ant-Man), the new trailer is no disappointment. We’re treated to wide shots of the remaining forces of the long-defeated Empire, some flashy aerial combat between X-wing pilots and TIE fighters, and the best look yet at Kylo Ren, the masked, crossguard lightsaber-wielding villain played by Adam Driver.

Despite the lack of cameos by the original cast (we miss your wry smirk, Han), the new footage is still exciting as hell. Here’s hoping that J.J. Abrams’ reimagining of the beloved saga lives up to the hype when it hits theaters in December.
