First Trailer: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”

It has been nine years since “Star Wars” was last on the big screen, and thirty-four long years since the last great film in the series was released (no offense Jedi). Sixteen years ago though was another event – the release of the first trailer for the first film in a whole new “Star Wars” trilogy.

It was a time of great hope and excitement for fans. Now, history is about to repeat itself as Disney, Lucasfilm and iTunes have officially released the first trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. The J.J. Abrams-directed film is not just the start of a new trilogy of “Star Wars” films, but a massive revival of the franchise which will take it in a whole new direction – one that, unlike the prequels, is uncharted territory that could go anywhere.

The new 88-second trailer doesn’t show much at all, mostly serving as an introduction to two new faces along with showcasing the visuals of this first entry in the new trilogy and they are pretty damn gorgeous. Have a look for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments below.
