Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Arrives


The trailer to J.J. Abrams Star Wars movie — The Force Awakens — hit the Internet on Friday. Unofficial Internet law says that every blog publishing content on the day after Thanksgiving must post the trailer and then form an ironclad opinion on the aforementioned 90 seconds.

Who knows what the actual plot of the movie will entail? The trailer ticks off most of the Star Wars boxes: sand, Stormtroopers, light sabers, the Millennium Falcon and droids. (Personally I’m hoping for more scenes about shipping tariffs that were such a delight during Episode I: The Phantom Menace.)

The movie comes out in theaters on Dec. 18, 2015 so here’s guessing there will be at least 5-6 more trailers and teasers, if not more, over the next 12+ months.
