Since we’re all out of trailers, the first TV spot for J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens has dropped to keep us geeking out until next month.
Despite a brief cameo from Han Solo (Harrison Ford), the first TV spot for the soon-to-be blockbuster largely focuses on the new generation of heroes. Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) get a good bit of the screen time, and we’re also treated to some tantalizing new voiceover work from Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong’o).
Considering the full trailers have managed not to give up any juicy details, this TV spot follows the “Mystery Box” trend. Still wondering what’s up with Luke (Mark Hamill)? Keep wondering. Want to glean some key points of the plot? Pfft. But, even if we don’t know much about what’s going on, it still looks fantastic. Abrams has definitely found a way to honor the look and feel of the original trilogy, and even though he's breaking in a younger cast, it feels like the 1970s all over again.
Check out the TV spot below and let us know what you thnk:
