Such is the palpable sense of excitement surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens that we now have a rumored description for the film’s hotly-anticipated second trailer. All signs are pointing to Disney unveiling the sophomore sizzle reel — which is to be a full-length clip — either during the annual Star Wars Celebration event or, in the more likely scenario, shortly before Avengers: Age of Ultron roars into theaters in May.
But forget timing, we’re more concerned about the actual contents of said trailer. Many assume that J.J. Abrams and Co. will reveal the original cast members now that fans of the beloved franchise have become acquainted with Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and the like. And, if an alleged trailer description unearthed by Latino Review is to be believed, this speculative approach is fairly on point.
We’ve included the full, play-by-play breakdown of the snippet down below, but for those who are waiting to see The Force Awakens‘ second trailer — or indeed the full feature in December — with a fresh set of eyes, be warned, it’s riddled with spoilers.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is on course to release on December 18, 2015. And if you just can’t wait for that all-important trailer, you can delve into the finer details below.
Like the first teaser 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. I believe this is the Puzzlewood location.
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. This is definitely Skellig Michael.
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 Voice Over (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.
