Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens is due out in cinemas in December, and today sees the release of the second teaser trailer, just five months on from the first. Expect many more in the coming months.
This one features a crashed Star Destroyer, owned by Darth Vader! There’s Darth Vader’s crushed mask! There’s flying X-wings! There’s explosions! There’s shooting! And there’s Han Solo and Chewy!!!
Ever-present Andy Serkis will be one of the newbies, alongside John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o and the awesome Max von Sydow. They will all be alongside Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker.
JJ Abrams will direct, but once again he’s been proved to be a cheap-ass, since while it’ll appear in 3D in the cinema, just like Star Trek Into Darkness, he’s filming it in 2D, and then doing a post-conversion into 3D. If you’re going to make it 3D, do so from the start!
The film will be written by Lawrence Kasdan and JJ Abrams, produced by Kathleen Kennedy, JJ Abrams and Bryan Burk, and the composer, as ever, is John Williams.
Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens will be released at cinemas on December 18th 2015. Check out the new teaser trailer below and click on the poster for the full-size image:
