Well, its finally here. After weeks of rumours and speculation, the first trailer for the eagerly awaited next episode of the Star Wars saga arrives on the internet.
I don’t think any other movie production has been so closely followed and Disney have seemed to take the plot/image leeks extremely well and haven’t admitted to anything, or denied them either. Even J.J.Abrams saw the funny side and released a few teasing notes on Twitter.
This feels like November of 1998 when almost exactly the same thing was happening. The world was about to see the first trailer for Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. It had been thirteen years since the release of Return of the Jedi and fans back then were also at fever pitch but when the film finally released, well, that was a different story.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens open worldwide on December the 15th 2015.
