Cancel Everything, the Second 'Star Wars Episode VII' Trailer Is Here
To be fair, the new Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens trailer could've included R2-D2 just rolling around on Tattooine for three minutes and it would've made my wannabe-Jedi heart slam into hyperspace. The flawless first trailer, released over Thanksgiving, was so good I would've been set until Christmas 2015, when the J.J. Abrams–helmed seven-quel drops, 32 years after Return of the Jedi. (I'd be fine because I've been watching the clip every two weeks and have no plans to stop.)
BUT THE NEW TRAILER HAS EVERYTHING. Someone—Luke's child?—talking about how the Force runs strong in his family. [Update: Nope! It's Luke, from Return of the Jedi! Whoa!] A ruined Star Destroyer half-buried in the sand. DARTH VADER'S BURNT UP HELMET AND SKULL. Luke's robo-hand. The new Sith lord, Kylo Ren, and his crazy lightsaber and his ominous mask.
And then our first look at Han fucking Solo, age 72, and his main man/Wookie, the one, the only, the eternal Chewbacca. It's the best moment of 2015. Maybe of the entire decade; we'll see. Just watch it so you can move on to watching it 100 times in a row.
