The newest jaw-dropping trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens dropped during ESPN’s Monday Night Football and with all the lightsaber action and breathtaking alien vistas, one big question was raised by the new sneak peek.
Why can't it already be December?! Star Wars fans across the world just want to give Disney all the money, so let's get this thing in theaters already!
With tons of new footage we get a look at the dark, violent side of the upcoming epic that looks like it's going to be bigger, more intense and more emotional than any Star Wars film that's come before. While we still didn't get a look at Luke, or the possible "starkiller" base, there is still enough in this lengthy trailer for fans to obsessive over and analyze for weeks to come.
After rebooting Star Trek, it's clear now that J.J. Abrams can take any beloved property and make it new and exciting without alienating the franchise’s original fans, and that is not an easy task (just ask almost any other director who has ever remade a beloved film).
In April, some diehard fans got the chance to celebrate the newest installment in the beloved franchise at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim where some key secrets were revealed at the Force Awakens panel. Check out the video below for a look at some of the greatest moments from the exciting panel.
