Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This is just a cool new shot in the aerial battle of the Resistance versus the First Order. Can’t wait to see this sequence.

Rey is in a hurry to grab her staff and get the hell out of there. I’m pretty sure this is her AT-AT home that she’s running on. Is it another shot of her running from the First Order?

Some more of Chewbacca! He looks to be on the Millennium Falcon, but that could be a different ship, I suppose. Also, I can’t be sure, but I don’t think we’ve ever seen a close-up shot of Chewbacca’s hand like this before, and it’s kind of strange. I never really thought he had such human hands. But he’s using them to trigger an explosion (though it might not be the same one that follows in this trailer).

Easily the coolest shot from the new footage, Kylo Ren seems to have the upper hand here. We’ve seen shots in the forest before, with Rey looking up at some First Order ships flying above, but nothing like this. Also, this is daytime, so it happens before Finn ends up facing Kylo at night in the snow. Does that happen on a different part of the planet, or just another planet entirely?

Finally, this isn’t a new shot, but the voiceover is important. We hear Maz Kanata say, “Hope is not lost today. It is found.” The fact that this is heard over a shot of Rey seems to further indicate that she’s the new Luke Skywalker in our new batch of heroes. She’s the new new hope. We’ve seen Finn wielding a lightsaber, but that doesn’t mean he’s destined to be the main hero. My money is on Rey being the Force user in this equation.

 ***

That’s all for the new footage from The Force Awakens international trailer. This is likely the last large chunk of new footage we’ll see from the movie, since I can’t imagine TV spots giving much more away that the trailers didn’t already. Just 41 days until Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives, and we’ll get to see everything.
