Unless you’ve been a hermit for the past couple of years, you’ll be aware that a new Star Wars film is on the way. Recently it was named as The Force Awakens and today the first teaser trailer for this film was released:
It’s impossible to get major impressions of this film from one brief glimpse, though I would dare say my initial impressions are positive. The look of the ships is faithful to the original films and there’s the impression this is a ‘lived-in’ galaxy, rather than the more plastic-looking prequel trilogy.
There are some moments of intrigue. The villain (presumably villain) is walking through a dark forest with a unique new lightsaber design. Who is the guy in the Stormtrooper armour in the middle of a desert? Who is the girl on the landspeeder? Finally, how do we interpret this talk of the Force awakening?
The teaser has done its job – it has whetted the appetite. Now we just have to wait for more.
