It’s been more than four months since we caught a fleeting glimpse of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ in the first teaser trailer. Not much else about the film leaked out after that, until this week’s Star Wars Celebration convention in Anaheim, where the new official trailer was unveiled. So, how’s it look?
This is, finally, a proper trailer, with a pretty substantive look at the movie. Yet it also, fortunately, doesn’t spoil too much about the plot. I appreciate that.
I wasn’t too impressed with the original teaser, which looked like typical J.J. Abrams flashy and shallow nonsense smothered in CGI crap. This one is a lot better. This looks like ‘Star Wars’ to me. It looks epic, and that shot of the crashed Star Destroyer is very striking. My hopes for the movie have risen with this.
Of course, ‘The Phantom Menace’ had a great trailer too, and we know how that turned out.
What’s your take?
