A new behind-the-scenes TV spot airs tonight on Disney XD in the states, but since it's already tonight in the UK, the spot has already aired. The footage takes a mix of behind-the-scenes and new footage from the film, giving a "just the basics" run down of Star Wars for fans who might not be as familiar. After all, every Star Wars story is somebody's first.

Highlights in the video include that close-up look at one of the aliens from that now infamous Vanity Fair spread, plus what appears to be General Hux giving the order to fire on a vehicle in the midst of a space battle or chase sequence - it's literally a second or so long, but it's something we haven't seen before! A shot of Poe Dameron speaking gives us just the slightest new tease of him, as well.

There's also a little bit of new Rey footage, and man, that quick shot of Finn and Rey each saying "I can do this" is just so intriguing.

Check out the (admittedly grainy) footage above, and tune in to Disney XD tonight for a closer look on your TV.
