Star Wars: The Force Awakens is less than two months away — and this trailer is basically melting the Internet. Fans all over the world can’t wait to dive back into the Star Wars universe — and we can’t blame them!
Episode VII, which is directed by J.J. Abrams, takes fans back to a galaxy far, far away — a tumultuous galaxy in which there are still light sabers a plenty, some new heroes and of course some old favorites, including Chewie and Han Solo. Much to our delight, the Millennium Falcon captain and his furry friend are back in the newest installation of the Star Wars saga. Seeing Han Solo on screen is sure to send fans into a frenzy, as it it the first time Solo has been on film since 1983’s Return of The Jedi.
In the new two-minute and 35-second trailer, we meet Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, who is described on the official Star Wars site as a “resilient survivor, a scavenger toughened by a lifetime of dealing with the cutthroats of the harsh desert world of Jakku.”
We also get to see the first glimpse of the film’s chief villain, Kylo Renn (Girls‘ Adam Driver), whom J.J. Abrams described as a “Empire fanboy.”
We love seeing Harrison Ford back as Han Solo. It’s a thrill to see Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia as well. But of course we noticed that Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker is nowhere to be seen — but what ya gonna do?
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is in theaters on Dec. 18.
