Star Wars: The Force Awakens Official Teaser #2

Darth Vader

The more I watch this, the more I am looking forward to the new film.

We also get to see Han Solo and Chewie, looking slightly older of course.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

We know from the previous trailer that the Falcon is still around.

“It’s the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. I’ve outrun Imperial starships. Not the local bulk cruisers mind you, I’m talking about the big Corellian ships now.”

I am pleased to read around the web, avoiding spoilers mind you, that they have taken a more “traditional” approach to filming, harkening back to the original trilogy of films and where possible avoiding CGI. Though I suspect this shot does use a little bit of CGI…

So are you looking forward to the new film?

Oh yes… Star Wars: The Force Awakens

It’s a teaser…

…but I already want to see more.

Like the shots of both the X-Wings and the Millennium Falcon, however the rolling ball robot does worry me slightly. I do hope that they don’t do a “Phantom Menance” and focus on toys and effects and forget the story. The charm of the 1977 Star Wars was not just incredible effects, but also a really good story of good and evil.
