The teaser trailer is finally here and I had to watch it on a phone with extremely spotty 3G service in the Adirondack Mountains! The teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens made me giddy like it was the first time I ever saw Star Wars as a little kid. *Please don’t suck, please don’t suck, please don’t suck….*
The trailer probably has been over-analyzed to death so I’ll tell you what I loved about it. New John Williams music for one! As soon as that “Sith” ignited that lightsaber, my wife, my brother and I all gasped at the same time. Then when we finally saw the Millennium Falcon take off at the end in that loop, we were all so giddy & excited.
This teaser trailer didn’t need to show us original cast or anything. The falcon was a great tease and it was cool to see the new characters that will be taking over things. My thought is, who was narrating in the beginning. It sounded like Cumberbatch unless it was someone else doing an impression of him. Guess we’ll find out sooner or later. Either way, I’m freakin’ stoked for this movie! Please don’t end up like the Prequels!
