I’ve long been a Star Wars fan. I remember growing up and watching the movies with my dad and brother. I still have the old school boxed VHS set of the original trilogy. So of course I’m excited for Star Wars The Force Awakens! I’ve been trying to keep my excitement in check but every new trailer just makes me feel like a kid again and makes me so happy! The final The Force Awakens trailer was released, and it is epic.
Watch the final trailer here:
Two of the new stars, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, both filmed reaction videos to the final trailer and it’s pretty adorable. Their reactions to seeing the final product, the full edited trailer with special effects, is great.
I love that these new stars are so excited about the movie. They seem to genuinely enjoy the series and it’s great to see their enthusiasm. It makes me even more excited.
One fan has take all The Force Awakens trailers and compiled them into one big super trailer. Take a look:
I love the new poster too. It’s so beautiful! I find it very interesting how Rey is posed in the middle and how her staff is blending in a bit with Kylo Ren’s lightsaber. Is it a hint about the plot and their relation as characters? I can’t wait to find out!
As soon as the tickets were on sale for pre-order, the internet basically crashed. The websites weren’t prepared to handle the mass amounts of people demanding tickets. Pre-sales for The Force Awakens are breaking records already. I won’t be surprised when this movie has a huge opening weekend.
