Rumors and reports are one thing, but a new trailer hitting in real life is so much more fun. Today is that day, as a full trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released during Monday Night Football, just about two months before the release of the film. This trailer follows the two teaser trailers that had been previously released.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan & Abrams, features a cast including actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Andersen, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. They will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters December 18, 2015, kicking off a new trilogy of Saga films as Episodes VIII and IX are already scheduled with directors Rian Johnson and Colin Trevorrow, respectively.
