The new Star Wars trailer has been released and it gives fans an idea of what to expect when the new movie is coming out. The expected release date for the new movie is December 2015, and Star Wars fans are excited to see the new version, The Force Awakens. With all the supposed favorite actors coming back to play old characters, the new version is sure to impress, as it will follow in the steps of the original Star Wars movies.
As many know, the movie was almost non-existent. Writer and director George Lucas, pitched his idea to several Hollywood studios but was turned down because Hollywood executives thought the movie was too weird. Though, when 20th Century Fox got a hold of it, after they approved the idea, they made it a hit movie, then followed it by many other hit movie sequels, and even a prequel. The first movie was released in May of 1977, but many people in today’s generation have seen the movie, several times over. Star Wars became a classic icon that still brings in money, even today. It seems like everywhere there is Darth Vader merchandise, Luke Skywalker merchandise, Princess Leia merchandise, and even pretend lightsabers. It appeared that the movie series would never go out of style. In order to guarantee that it does not, director J.J. Abrams is working to create a great follow up to all the previous releases, with Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. This new release will further guarantee that Star Wars will live on, and since the movie follows the same theme, it is only fitting that fans will most likely watch the previous movies again before seeing the new one.
Many of the actors who were in the previously released Star Wars movie in the 70’s and 80’s, as well as some actors involved in the movies that released between 1999 and 2005, have returned to play the same characters. According to IMDB.com, the timeline of the movie is that it will be set 30 years after the timeline in the previous Star Wars movies. This will help the actors who joined in to play their same characters, as the actors look much older now than they did in the 80’s. Mark Hamill who played Luke Skywalker, and Harrison Ford who played Han Solo, are just a few of the actors re-joining for the new Star Wars movie. Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia, is also set to come back. The fact that many of the same actors will be in the movie, only helps the theme better, as changing actors after the long series of Star Wars movies is probably not a good idea if the producers want to make as much money on this movie, as the previous ones did.
The Star Wars trailer gave fans an idea of what is to come, but only gave brief flashes of what happened. The ending line when Harrison Ford says, “Chewy we’re home,” sets an idea in the minds of all who watch as to what the theme of the movie will be. The clips placed together do leave many confused, but others see the trailer as a spark to the imagination. Sources call it a teaser trailer as it only gives an idea to tease viewers but not give them large information. As the theme of the movie supposedly follows Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, just 30 years after, fans can expect to get an entertaining performance from some favorite characters. Other large details of the movie will not be seen until the release. The trailer for the new Star Wars movie makes it seem like Hollywood did not want to give to much away.
For many fans the new trailer release says just enough about what may happen in the lives of the characters who lived in the Star Wars movies. It leaves much unknown, but gives excitement to those who have long awaited a new Star Wars release. An event kicked off the trailer release as characters showed off and united in an emotional presentation. Star Wars veterans and new faces showed up as the audience greatly welcomed them.
The first trailer, released in November 2014, also gave fans just enough to spark their desire to see the new Stars Wars movie. It mostly introduced new characters, while still briefly showing the faces of old characters. Sources say that the new characters Rey, Finn, and Poe (played by Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac respectively) will copy the Leia, Luke, and Han trio that was set in the previous movies, though it is unsure whether the characters will follow that theme, in regards to their relationship.
As the Star Wars series continues fans are only left with the wonder of what will happen, but many have already planned to be at the theaters when the movie comes out. With only the two teaser trailers that have been released, and little information to go on, the premier of the movie will certainly fill in a lot of blanks. The new Star Wars trailer gives fans an idea of what is to come, but the movie is said to give fans a lot of answers and an entertaining experience.
