Chances are you’re still reeling from buying your Episode VII tickets thanks to a few movie sites selling them early and then also making sure to catch the trailer as soon as it aired during the game. We’re in the home stretch before the December release and chances are you have those tickets on lock so let’s take a refresher look at the final preview of the film we’ve been waiting 30 years for.
Take a breath and let us break it down for you.
The Hero’s Call
Answered by a woman. The trailer opens and someone asks who are you?
A lone figure sweeps down the interior of what we speculate is the crashed Imperial Star Destroyer to scavenge.
Rey (Daisy Ridley) responds, I’m no one.
What sounds like a denial of importance, builds to a mirror image between her and Luke on coarse sands. She may find herself accepting the hero’s journey before she knows it.
Wait, what if BB-8 comes from the Star Destroyer and is a treacherous little droid?
The Dark Side And The Light
Foreboding Stormtroopers. WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE LAST 30 YEARS?!?
Finn (John Boyega) describes leaving the path he was on and has nothing to fight for, crash lands on Jakku. We’re familiar with this from the teasers.
Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) overlooks space from
the new,new Death Star Starkiller Base and makes a promise in a distorted voice, I will finish what you started. Close up on the remains of Vader’s helmet, gasp!!! Our money is on Kylo being Vader’s grand kid, family legacy and all.
He is then seen torturing Poe Dameron (Oscar Issac), similarly shot how Vader tortured Solo in Empire Strikes Back.
Feels Hit You
The Han and Leia theme shoots through your ear holes and gives you chills. We see the Millennium Falcon swoops through the Star Destroyer remains. Rey says There were stories about what happened. Han responds, It’s true, all of it….(The Falcon jumps to LIGHTSPEED!!!!)…the Jedi, the Dark Side.
X-Wings and Tie Fighter dog fights. Finn and Poe working together. Maybe a Jedi temple? A Hooded Luke with mech arm accompanied by R2. Chrome trooper (Gwendoline Christie) leading! Kylo Ren strikes down on something unseen. Rey reacts to something tragic. Will Harrison Ford get his Han death wish? But wait, then we see Chewie, Han and Finn, being apprehended. Is BB-8 with Poe? Ok, he’s cool again. More stromtroopers, Rey with a blaster. With a blaster? Is she not Force sensitive or is she denying herself the Force?
A woman’s voice echoes:
The Force it’s calling to you…
HAN AND LEIA EMBRACING!!! More fights. And damn that X-Wing shot a tropper from the sky. Another villainous shot of Kylo using the Force leading up to…
The battle in the snow, Finn and Kylo prepare to face off in Star Wars: The Force Awakens!
See it December 17/18th!
