We have a very detailed description of the next Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer that's currently making the rounds on the Internet. It sounds like it could be the real thing, but given the amount of speculation flying around out there about one of the decade's most anticipated films, it could also be a fake. So I'm sure we don’t need to remind you guys to take this with a grain of salt, right? Great. Let’s go have a look, shall we?

About this Stars Wars trailer breakdown, Comic Book Movie reports that Latino Review’s El Mayimbe and Star Wars 7 News have also received emails that contained the same Instagram description, and that the trailer breakdown sounds like another, similar one they received a short while back; one they dismissed because it was poorly written. But since this one sounds more coherent ... they’re going for it. The new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is supposedly set to debut at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim next month, so we’ll have to wait and see if this particular breakdown turns out to be true.

Check out the trailer description:

Like the first teaser it opens with a shot of the desert planet. Although it's not dunes. It's a destroyed AT-AT on its side. Voice over (sounds like Lupita Nyong'o): "I shall show you the story..." Forest location with a very large structure (like a castle or something) with an opening in the base of a large tree. I believe this is the Puzzlewood location. VO continues "of who you seek..." A large city in a tropical location. Looks like it's on the water. VO continues "the one who taught me..." Cloaked figure (maybe Luke?) standing at the top of stone steps on a high green hill with mountain stones behind him. This is definitely Skellig Michael.

VO continues "I know why the weapon came to you." John Boyega (Finn), Daisy Ridley (Rey), and a small blue alien with a CG face in a dark (underground?) cave. Finn takes a lightsaber, and turns it on revealing a green blade. Rey is in the background and looks disturbed. Things pick up from here. Lots of quick shots. Han Solo wearing a brown duster and looking past the camera. A black TIE Fighter attacking the forest location we saw earlier. Kylo Ren in a POV shot approaching someone on the ground. His mask is dark with silver accents. The cross-guard saber is ignited. People running in the city seen earlier in the trailer. R2-D2 making a forlorn beep. C-3PO and Princess Leia in what looks like a base command center. New Voice Over (sounds like Andy Serkis from the first trailer) "Don't get too sentimental". As that VO is playing we see Han looking at Leia and then walking away from her towards the Falcon with Chewie.

The snowy forest from the first trailer. Slow shot of Finn holding the saber, looks like he's protecting Rey from someone as we hear Han say "You can do this kid, I believe in you." Final shot of the trailer is a close-up of a hooded head looking up to reveal Luke.

Making Star Wars also has a very lengthy (and interesting) description of an IMAX sequence that introduces the character of Rey, played by Daisy Ridley. This breakdown of the scene also sounds pretty cool — huge, crashed Star Destroyer, anyone? — but both these bits, as intriguing as they are, can only be considered rumors for now.

Still, what did you think of the trailer breakdown? Do you have a feeling that this is the real deal, or do you believe it’s more noise?
