Final “Star Wars” Trailer Drops During Monday Night Football
(CNN) — The latest trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” debuted on ESPN during this week’s Monday night football game, perhaps the most anticipated halftime outside of a Super Bowl.
The trailer introduces us once again to Daisy Ridley’s Rey and John Boyega’s Finn, before kicking into high gear with glimpses of Han Solo, Chewbacca and Princess Leia, not to mention the evil Kylo Ren, space battles and all we’re used to seeing from the best “Star Wars” movies.
The film is set decades after “Return of the Jedi.” And as the trailer shows, the younger characters aren’t sure the stories about the Jedi are real. Han assures them everything they’ve heard is true.
Meanwhile, Kylo Ren is set on finishing what Darth Vader started (one would guess that means wiping out any vestiges of the Jedi at least).
Director J.J. Abrams prefaced the trailer with a note to fans: “I don’t care if you’re black, white, brown, Jawa, Wookiee, Jedi or Sith. I just hope you like it!”
