Now that J.J. Abrams has finished shooting Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there are rumblings that he might show us -- soon -- a little bit of what he shot.

Badass Digest has been picking up intel that we might see the first teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens very soon. How soon? Well, a few different scenarios have been rumored, ranging from placing it in front of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 when that film opens later this week to premiering it on Disney-owned ABC (Mockingjay is less likely due to the short turnaround).

As for what we'll see in that trailer, it won't be all that much -- the thing will supposedly only run for about a minute -- but it will be something. Here's what Badass was told:

It's going to have The Force Theme played on woodwinds, softly, over flashing images of the main leads, each fading to black. There's no dialogue, just reveals of the characters. And then the music swells up into a full orchestral piece -- perhaps what John Williams recorded this weekend? -- and we hear a female voice, likely Daisy Ridley's, saying "Wake up."

And then the title card appears -- Star Wars: The Force Awakens -- and we see the Millennium Falcon, firing blasters, coming right at the camera. 

I have to say it sounds compelling -- just reading about that last shot of the Falcon raises a few goosebumps -- and we'll learn soon if that description proves true. Expect to see this somewhere before the end of the year...which is only six and a half weeks away.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out in theaters December 18. 2015.
