At the Star Wars Celebration event last night, some news, videos and plans for the iconic intergalactic sci-fi franchise were revealed, and director JJ Abrams was on hand to deliver his brand-new trailer for The Force Awakens.
There’s some serious nostalgia and hints at some big things in the film, and we also get a closer-look at some of the new characters.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens features a cast including actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Andersen, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow.
They will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker. The film is being produced by Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk, and John Williams returns as the composer.
