SECOND STAR WARS FORCE AWAKENS TRAILER

New Droid
The second STAR WARS VII: THE FORCE AWAKENS trailer has crept up on us, and it’s much better than the first, highly anticipated and publicized teaser, now beginning with a narration by a great voice-over actor, and main player of the original trilogy, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, and a fantastic image that makes this promotion truly worthwhile…

Falcon chase
As a lonely french horn from a reposeful section of John Williams' classic soundtrack plays, we see, on (what's obviously) the familiar planet of Tatooine (months later, we've learned it's not), the shadowy remnant of an Imperial Cruiser along with a fallen X-Wing, both having plunged into the sandy depths a long, long time ago…

A grainy ghost ship epitomizing George Lucas’s original concept of a “used future,” horrendously abandoned in the slick and glossy prequels: While the Stormtrooper helmets and a few other quick images also seem high-tech reminiscent of those millennial catastrophes...

Cute Ingenue
And it’s hard to figure if the R2 Volley Ball will be the Jar Jar of Droids… The black dude still has major Stormtrooper issues, once again taking off the helmet with a stunned expression of, “Why am I wearing this damn thing?” But since he’s now battling and/or running away from laser-happy villains along with our cute ingénue, it’s not as awkward as before.

Closing once again is the Millennium Falcon chased through the desert by Tie Fighters… Oscar Isaac is having a literal blast piloting an X-Wing… And last and certainly not least, the audience gets what’s truly been anticipated: A glimpse of Han and “Chewie,” the famous smuggler says, now donning what looks like an Indy leather jacket instead of his signature vest: “We’re home!”
A purgatory graveyard of forgotten cinematic greatness
