While we all wait very impatiently for the first Star Wars: Episode VII trailer to arrive, little snippets of information keep trickling through, some believable and some not.
Tonight’s rumour, which is a trailer description, is considered by many to be legit, for it comes from BadAssDigest, who have been pretty spot on with their Star Wars new thus far.
The site posted a description of the very first teaser trailer for the JJ Abrams directed film, and said to be running at a minute long, it doesn’t appear to show much, but is all about rousing fans into a state of utter excitement and possible fan boy geek outs when viewing the short clip.
There has been talk that the trailer could either first appear on a TV show (like the planned Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer appearing during an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), or it could be attached to Disney’s big released, Into the Woods. Either way, here is the trailer description, which sounds pretty spot on for a Abrams release:
It’s going to have The Force Theme played on woodwinds, softly, over flashing images of the main leads, each fading to black. There’s no dialogue, just reveals of the characters. And then the music swells up into a full orchestral piece – perhaps what John Williams recorded this weekend? – and we hear a female voice, likely Daisy Ridley‘s, saying “Wake up.”
And then the title card appears – Star Wars: The Force Awakens – and we see the Millennium Falcon, firing blasters, coming right at the camera.
Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the Saga Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
Star Wars: Episode VII is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer. The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015.
