“The Force is strong in my family,” he says. “My father has it. I have it. My sister has it. You have that power too.”
It’s unclear whether he is addressing a member of the Skywalker family or another character altogether.
The trailer shows scenes from Jakku, a desert planet not unlike Tatooine, where the wreckage of an Imperial star destroyer is seen in the dunes. It’s not the only classic “Star Wars” ship — the trailer also features X-wings, TIE fighters and, of course, the Millennium Falcon.
The teaser also introduces a mysterious chrome stormtrooper and lingers on a shot of Darth Vader’s melted mask.
John Boyega, who plays a new character named Finn, and Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey, feature strongly. But longtime fans might be most excited to see Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), the scoundrel smugglers who helped Luke and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) defeat the Galactic Empire in the original trilogy.
“Chewie, we’re home,” Han Solo says.
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is set to open Dec. 18 and will see stars of the landmark original trilogy reprise their iconic roles alongside a large ensemble of newcomers including Boyega, Ridley, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac.
