The first Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer has finally arrived. Watch below:
For days, speculation has swirled about when and where the first look at the next Star Wars would debut. On Monday, Bad Robot’s Twitter account tweeted a note from director J.J. Abrams confirming that that 88 seconds of footage would be debuting in theaters this Friday. Disney later revealed that the footage would be screening in just 30 theaters across the U.S. and Canada, with the teaser showing before every single showing of every single movie in the select theaters throughout the weekend.
The Force Awakens has all of the core cast from the original Star Wars trilogy returning, including Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford. It’ll also be setting up a brand new crew for this coming trilogy, largely comprised of younger, newer actors — John Boyega and Daisy Ridley are two in particular who you should be looking out for. But the film really has a great cast across the board, also including Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christi, and Andy Serkis. We’re looking forward to seeing even more of what they do with the series.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to hit theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.
