The first teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens very deliberately avoiding showing us any of the classic Star Wars characters, despite the fact he knew the likes of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher would be returning.
However for the new trailer they’ve realised that while it’s nice to see some new characters, fans also want to know things haven’t changed that much, whether it’s the look of the film doing a great job of aping previous instalments, Luke Skywalker’s voice and arm, or the big reveal at the end with Han Solo and Chewbacca.
The new trailer was launched new at today’s The Force Awakens panel at Star Wars Celebration – the Ultimate Star Wars fan experience. Fans in the U.K who were unable to attend Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California attended a live local London event hosted by Star Wars star Warwick Davis at the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square.
Take a look at the trailer below.
