Star Wars is a benevolent overlord, drops new ‘The Force Awakens’ footage ahead of trailer

UPDATE 10/19/2015: You can now watch the full new trailer above.

The “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” onslaught continues unabated. Tomorrow marks the brand-new trailer for the highly anticipated film during Monday Night Football. As soon as the last frame of footage ends during half-time, advanced tickets will go on sale for first “Star Wars” movie in over a decade.

We”ve already seen the the new poster and some crazy person has already ranked 20 Star Wars posters from over the years.

Now Disney and Lucasfilm are teasing fans with new footage! The Hype Train™ is leaving the station! All aboard!

TEASE #1: Poe Dameron and Finn know each other. This footage will look familiar to anyone who saw those leaked set photos taken via drone…not that we would do that. The question now becomes does Finn join the Resistance before or after his days in First Order trooper gear?


TEASE #2: Everyone is staring intently at something. We know Finn is looking at Poe, but what is Poe looking at? More importantly, what is Rey looking at? That figure behind her seems to be backing away from something. Could this be from moments before the TIE attacks in the trailer?


TOMORROW #TheForceAwakens
