“There’s been an awakening. Have you felt it?” A billion years in the making, here’s the first trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
The J.J. Abrams film stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Andy Serkis, Gwendoline Christie and original trilogy cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. Boyega (in full Stormtrooper armor!) and Ridley are glimpsed for the first time in the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” trailer, which utilizes John Williams’ signature “Star Wars” theme to great effect. The Millennium Falcon is there too.
Abrams and Lucasfilm made waves last week when it was revealed that the first trailer would debut in select theaters around the country on Nov. 28. On Wednesday, however, Team “Star Wars” announced that the trailer would also be available on iTunes for those who didn’t want to make a trek out to their local multiplex. The Force is strong with this marketing campaign. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is out on Dec. 18, 2015.
