Watch: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ International Trailer is Loaded with New Footage

An international trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has landed with a slew of new footage, perfect for eagle-eyed fans who are eager to dissect every frame of the upcoming sci-fi sequel.

The trailer offers our first proper glimpse of beloved protocol droid C-3PO (Anthony Daniels), along with more footage of BB-8, Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) and Rey (Daisy Ridley), who is seen meeting Finn (John Boyega) and having a harrowing encounter with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) in the promo, while also revealing an intriguing new tidbit about her character motivations: she’s waiting for her family.

Other shots expand on what we’ve already seen, adding more context to Kylo Ren’s scene with Darth Vader’s crushed helmet, and showing new angles from some of the major aerial battle sequences between TIE Fighters and the Resistance’s forces, before ending with a line from what sounds like Lupita Nyong’o’s still unseen Maz Kanata.

Earlier this week, Disney and Lucasfilm released character posters for a number of key players in the space saga, including Finn, Rey, Kylo Ren, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), although Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker remains MIA from the promotional materials.

“The Force Awakens” also stars Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson and Max von Sydow, and debuts in theaters on Dec. 18.

  1. He s most likely talking to kylo ren. Who changed his surname after the Knights of Ren. I’m guessing Luke is trying to rebuild the jedi order by training kylo, but kylo too fascinated by his grandfather’s power and turns to the dark side. My reasoning that kylo is his nephew because liea sKYwalkwer and Han soLO are his parents.

    I bet that Kylo Ren and Rei are the twins of Han and Leia
    and Luke was trainging Kylo when his obsession with
    his grandfather Anakim (Darth) over took him

    They still keep saying that Luke remains MIA from promotional materials, people have figured out this scam days ago. Believe when I write that people know what they’re looking at when they look at that movie poster, the secret is blown and you can thank J.J., the entertainment press, and the geeks on the internet who love spoilers. Now people are going to sit there in the theater watching this flick saying, “yep, knew that was coming”.

    I really believe that the family Rey is waiting for is Han and Leia. They have had kids in the canonical books so they could have just changed the name. Or went the marvel route and told her the real name later on
