The final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiered during ESPN’s Monday Night Football and (like the poster) is noticeably missing original film star Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker).
In the exciting trailer we see Han Solo (Harrison Ford) telling new characters Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) “It’s true. All of it. The Dark Side, the Jedi-they’re real.” We also see plenty of new footage from the film (which looks AWESOME, we might add), but what we don’t see is Luke Skywalker.
Take a look at the final trailer and the official poster below:
The epic movie stars Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Daisy Ridley as Rey, and John Boyega as Finn. It also (of course) brings back the classic characters the story began with: Carrie Fisher as Leia Skywalker, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Harrison Ford as Han Solo and even old pals Chewbacca, C-3P0 and R2-D2. Also starring are Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Max Von Sydow.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters December 18, 2015.
