A while back, director J.J. Abrams assured fans that we would not be getting another trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens ahead of its December 18 release, but since then we’ve had numerous TV spots, and the latest extended promo contains enough new footage to more than make up for the lack of another full trailer.
This latest preview begins with the familiar sight of Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) standing on his ship’s deck, but the voiceover from Any Serkis’ mysterious Supreme Leader Snoke is longer and extends into a conversation between the two villains. It seems Snoke is concerned that whatever force has been awakened on the light side will be too much for even Kylo to contend with.

Following that we get a few new battle shots, before Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong’o) takes over the narration and urges our heroes to face and fight the threat of the First Order. Are Snoke and Maz being positioned as the new guiding forces of darkness and light, much like The Emperor and Yoda in the original trilogy?
Starring original cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker, alongside franchise newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o and Max von Sydow, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to be released on December 18th, 2015.
