The brand new trailer for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS debuted last night on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” during halftime of the National Football League game between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles in Philadelphia. Those poor Giants and Eagles thinking all those extra watchers were tuned in to see them! I bet that after halftime their viewers dropped big time! After all, they had to rush to get their tickets for the release since tickets to the highly anticipated cinematic event went on sale everywhere movie tickets are sold.
When a ruthless prince rises to power and threatens galactic peace, a runaway soldier, an uncongenial scavenger, and a hot shot pilot find their fates intertwined as they embark on a journey to find the most powerful warrior in the galaxy. And now I present – the newest trailer from Star Wars: The Force Awakens ~
A long time ago – in a galaxy far, far away . . . . .
A continuation of the saga set thirty years after Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, STAR WARS: The Force Awakens is set to open in theaters everywhere Dec. 18. The Episode VII story will feature the forces of the First Order, an offshoot of the Galactic Empire, aligned against the Resistance, sprung from the Rebel Alliance. The story material will not be based on Star Wars Legends, formerly known as the Expanded Universe, rather, it will be an original story set after Return of the Jedi.
Lucasfilm and visionary director J.J. Abrams join forces to take you back again to a galaxy far, far away as Star Wars returns to the big screen with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The film stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, and Kenny Baker reprising their original roles. The original cast are joined by a host of new actors including John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, and Adam Driver, and others.
The film will be presented in RealD 3D and IMAX 3D where available.
Theatres around the country and Canada will be celebrating this momentous launch and new movie with special events and exclusive giveaways. The Star Wars Marathon Event is the ultimate fan experience. All seven movies. One epic journey. Guests will see each of the six previously released Star Wars episodes in digital 2D beginning with The Phantom Menace and concluding with the opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 3D!
