A few days ago an unexpected Japanese trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrived, and it featured lots of new footage, and fans excitement is now close to breaking point.
Pre-sales for the film are out of this world, and all signs are pointing to JJ Abrams’ film becoming one of the biggest, if not THE biggest film of all time. Disney and LucasFilm have said that no more trailers will be released, yet we are still in the dark about exactly what will be happening in the film.
So now come the TV spots, which we don’t really need because if you don’t know the film is coming, then you are living in a Galaxy far, far away. However, this UK TV spot will no doubt be the first of many as we still have six weeks to go, and with the new footage on display here I am sure fans will be loving all these teases.
Personally, I am happy with the trailers I have seen, and I don’t want to see anymore, a little secrecy is just what the movie world needs. Abrams is all about keeping as much hidden as possible, so I really hope these TV spots don’t reveal too much.
In this new TV spot there’s more action, some glorious shots of the Millennium Falcon, more character build up and our first look at Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata. She also provides the voiceover, stating “I have lived long enough to see the same eyes in different people. I see your eyes. I know your eyes.”
I wonder whose eyes she is talking about?
