A brand new, albeit very short, teaser for Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens has been posted to the official Star Wars instagram. The teaser features a combination of shots we've seen before and some very exciting new ones. Check it out for yourself below,
What's exciting is this new teaser seems to feature about half new footage and half stuff we've seen before. We see the shot from the Korean TV spot and the Kylo Ren in the forest shot from the first trailer again, but we also get a cool new shot of Rey and BB-8 on a green planet and a shot of Finn holding Luke's old lightsaber. This final shot seems to be in the same location we see Kylo in, with the implication being we are about to see those two face off in a lightsaber duel. Also, it sounds to me like we're hearing a different take of the now classic "There has been an awakening" dialogue from Andy Serkis' Supreme Leader Snoke. Also, is that new John Williams score I hear?
I have to say, this was an exciting surprise for this Thursday! It's exciting to finally, officially, get to see one of our heroes wielding a lightsaber on screen, as up until this point we had only seen the villain using one in the first two trailers. Also, you have to wonder what Rey and BB-8 are looking up at (though if you've read the spoilers you may have an idea).
