Ren (Adam Driver), is Darth Vader’s successor and avenger. He’s definitely been rebooted with sophisticated evil-looking black duds.
In the trailer, Ren has a whack scene right out of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
He stars down at Darth Vader’s burned helmet and what looks like his skull. He mutters in a Darth Vader rasp: “I will finish what you started.” Talk about foreshadowing.
Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyegaget) are the new protagonists in the “Star Wars” reboot. She’s a scavenger on the desert planet Jakku. He’s a disaffected First Order stormtrooper.
They get the face time with Han Solo. But it’s only a snap shot. Apparently, they trying to find out if all the stories about the rebellion are true. Who would know better than Han?
“Those stories about what happened…?” she asks, stopping in mid-sentence.
“It’s true,” says a world weary Solo. “All of it.”
Beyond that, the trailer mostly features the stunning special effects and CGI that Disney and LucasFilms are known for.
Along with Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher reprise their roles as Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa from the original “Star Wars” movie. But they don’t make the trailer.
Still, the movie looks like it will be a pretty thrilling ride.
The latest trailer premiered during halftime on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football.” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will hit theaters Dec. 18.
