With one week to go before the next trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is shown publicly for the first time, a report has surfaced about what those two minutes might contain.
Actually, make that just under two minutes -- 1:50, to be exact -- according to MakingStarWars.net, which has been a steady go-to source for scoops, rumors and intel surrounding the film. And now they've posted a list of what we might see in that next trailer, which will be shown at Star Wars Celebration next week in Anaheim before showing up in front of The Avengers: Age of Ultron in theaters starting May 1.
Want to know what to expect? Then keep reading. If not, stop here.
OK, here we go:
- We will see Han Solo, Princess Leia, R2-D2 and C-3PO, but not Luke Skywalker.
- There is a shot of Finn (John Boyega) wielding a blue lightsaber.
- We see Kylo Ren's (Adam Driver) helmeted face, along with a shot of the chrome stormtrooper (possibly Captain Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie).
- The Rebellion's old stomping grounds of Yavin are seen briefly.
- We see Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) shoot down a TIE fighter, and in a second shot catch him hanging out with R2-D2, C-3PO and the CG character "Rose," played by Lupita Nyong'o.
- There's a shot of Finn and Poe walking past one another at the base.
- A few shots featuring Rey (Daisy Ridley) are present.
- We see BB-8 socketed in the back of an X-wing.
- Kylo Ren’s Imperial shuttle escorted by TIE fighters to a Star Destroyer is glimpsed.
- There are also more Star Destroyers, a shot of the Millenium Falcon and X-wing fighters flying in a V-shape formation.
- And finally, we see Darth Vader’s helmet resting on a podium.
There's no word on what order these images will appear in, only that they will all reportedly show up in the trailer. Anything missing? Yes -- aside from Mark Hamill as Luke, the other major cast member not shown is Andy Serkis.
We also don't know if any of these scenes will include dialogue, and it seems that, judging from the somewhat random nature of the shots, we still won't be afforded any real inkling of the plot.
But there you have it. Speculate away below, and let's all regroup and compare notes on how accurate this actually is when the trailer premieres on April 16 in Anaheim (we'll be there).
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out Dec. 18.
