WATCH: The New Force Awakens Trailer From China Is the Most Revealing Yet
The cast is a lot chattier this time around.
Maybe it’s because Star Wars: The Force Awakensis only a week away from its release date, or maybe it’s just that Asia always gets better trailers than us, but the latest Force Awakenstrailer out of China is by far the least cryptic we’ve seen.
Some of the footage is familiar, but with dialogue added on; and there’s plenty more footage that’s brand new. In this trailer, Force Awakens has a very distinct original trilogy feel (thanks in part to Han Salo facing imminent disaster behind the controls) and it looks goddamn beautiful.
The sleuths over at the Daily Dot have gleaned some plot details from the new footage:
… we can now deduce that the evil First Order attacks the desert planet Jakku, causing Rey, Finn, and BB-8 to flee the approaching TIE fighters in the Millennium Falcon. At one point, the Falcon also crashes on a snowy planet, which we assume is where Finn and Rey face off against Kylo Ren and his crossguard lightsaber.
They sound pretty confident, and we are in no position to argue. In case the date is not already burned into your brain, Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens on December 18.
