It was inevitable. As we get closer to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we are beginning to see brand new, sometimes spoilerish, footage. It comes with the territory. But seeing as how restrained the marketing campaign has been, the first twoteasers hardly revealed anything at all, and we will be getting our first full-length theatrical trailer sometime in the fall.
But if you can’t wait that long, if you want to see something brand new and exciting, then the Star Wars Instagram account has just released a new TV spot that reminds all of us who have been waiting for this that “There Has Been An Awakening.” Check out the latest ad below, which features brand new clips and the person Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) faces in the first teaser is finally revealed.
The TV spot opens with a wide shot of The First Order, the very same one that we saw in the international TV spot that was released a few weeks back. It then transitions to a new never before seen clip of BB-8 and Rey (Daisy Ridley) looking up towards the sky, possibly seeing the threat of The First Order rain down on them. Finally it ends with Kylo Ren walking down that steep hill igniting his crossguard lightsaber, the very same clip that we saw in the first teaser, and it closes with one big reveal. The person who Kylo is facing is Finn (John Boyega) who is wielding a blue lightsaber.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Domhnall Gleeson, Adam Driver, Andy Serkis, Max von Sydow, and returning alum Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, and Kenny Baker. Disney has scheduled the film for a December 18, 2015 theatrical release, and will be available to see in IMAX for an entire month.
