Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the most anticipated movie of the year, and as such, interest in a new trailer is high.
The first Star Wars trailer debuted in December, and everyone agreed that it was a perfect tease. So when’s the next Force Awakens trailer coming? The rumor mill says it’ll premiere at Star Wars Celebration (an official convention solely for Star Wars fans) in Anaheim, California this April. It’s the perfect place to drop a trailer because the audience consists of only the most diehard Star Wars fans.
Naturally the details about the trailer’s contents are being kept under wraps, but multiple sources have offered up a description to Latino Review. If true, characters like Han, Leia, Chewbacca, C-3P0, and R2-D2 will appear in the new trailer:
It opens with a shot of the desert planet. Although it’s not dunes. It’s a destroyed AT-AT on its side. Voice over (sounds like Lupita Nyong’o): “I shall show you the story…” Forest location with a very large structure (like a castle or something) with an opening in the base of a large tree.
VO continues “of who you seek…” A large city in a tropical location. Looks like it’s on the water.
VO continues “the one who taught me…” Cloaked figure (maybe Luke?) standing at the top of stone steps on a high green hill with mountain stones behind him.
VO continues “I know why the weapon came to you.” John Boyega (Finn), Daisy Ridley (Rey), and a small blue alien with a CG face in a dark (underground?) cave. Finn takes a lightsaber, and turns it on revealing a green blade. Rey is in the background and looks disturbed.

Things pick up from here. Lots of quick shots.
Han Solo wearing a brown duster and looking past the camera. A black TIE Fighter attacking the forest location we saw earlier. Kylo Ren in a POV shot approaching someone on the ground. His mask is dark with silver accents. The cross-guard saber is ignited. People running in the city seen earlier in the trailer. R2-D2 making a forlorn beep. C-3PO and Princess Leia in what looks like a base command center. New VO (sounds like Andy Serkis from the first trailer) “Don’t get too sentimental”. As that VO is playing we see Han looking at Leia and then walking away from her towards the Falcon with Chewie.
The snowy forest from the first trailer. Slow shot of Finn holding the saber, looks like he’s protecting Rey from someone as we hear Han say, “You can do this kid, I believe in you.” Final shot of the trailer is a close-up of a hooded head looking up to reveal Luke.
While the first trailer was light on old favorites, the next Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer should have plenty of beloved characters making their long-awaited comeback.
Can’t wait? Watch the first trailer a few more times:
