Verizon Reveals TV Spot Featuring Chewbacca & BB-8

By: Benjamin Hart

The media blitz for Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens is in full swing and Star Wars is literally everywhere these days. One of the biggest treats to look forward to when anticipating a new Star Wars film is the television ads that are revealed, and recently a brand new one popped up from the Cell Phone provider Verizon. The ad features BB-8 and Chewbacca as they attempt to download something from a console while remaining undetected by a squad of First Order Stormtroopers. Things do not go as planned and Chewie ends up in a shootout with the Troopers. It's an amazing ad simply because it plays out like a scene from the film, even though that's obviously not the case. Verizon certainly spared no expense in giving this TV spot an authentic Star Wars feel. You can check it out below:

This one just might top the Energizer ad we saw a few weeks back. It's certainly awesome to Star Wars back on the small screen in this way. I can't see more ads from other companies as well!
