New Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer!

I'm going to jump on this Star Wars: The Force Awakens hype with a little trailer analysis. 

The first shot shows Rey, played by newcomer Daisy Ridley, who will be the equivalent of Luke for this new series opener. She is hopping around damaged ships with some skill. I think this is taking place on the new planet Jakku, which I heard will also be a level on the new Star Wars: Battlefront. This level will explain the battle that leaves all the wreckage on this planet because it will be a big fight between the Empires and I guess the New Republic. I think they are calling the Empire the New Order or First Order or something. I'll have to find out.

A voiceover asks who Rey is and she channels her inner Arya and says no one. This, to me, hints that she will be a descendant of one of the major characters and possibly have some force powers. These few shots establish Rey's life on this planet. Then we get the iconic Lucasfilm banner. 

The second group of shots establish the new villains and what I think will be my favorite storyline, Finn deserting a position as a stormtrooper from a crashed Tie Fighter to become a Jedi. 

The next character introduction is Adam Driver's Kylo Ren who follows in the path of Darth Vader. He will be an awesome villain and I think that new lightsaber looks cool. He is standing over Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron, who screams in pain. 

Then Harrison Ford appears and we get a ton of awesome action shots: lightsaber fights, X-wings, Tie Fighters chasing the Millennium Falcon, various characters and stormtroopers firing blasters. It will be an action-pack thrill ride no doubt. I am hotly anticipating this new movie and will be there at its release on December 18 or whenever I can get tickets.
