New Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer – Watch it and then join in the dissection in the comments
The new #StarWars Teaser Trailer starts with some pretty impressive visuals and then packs even more into it’s 2 minute length.
So without any further ado:
Breaking it down here. I’ll update as we learn more:
I love that Luke Skywalker starts off with some over-dialogue that implies there are new users of the Force out there. Gave me tingles down my spine.
We see a crashed Destroyer from the Empire on planet Jakku and landspeeder passes in front of it (Is this Rey on that speeder bike?).
We then see a young girl (possibly Rey) giving that cloaked figure a Lightsaber.
There are two new fan made t-shirts representing some of the awesome stuff we saw in the first preview trailer for Episode vii, aka Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Tee Fury today.
The first tee from zerobriant is available for the first time anywhere on Tee Fury. It features the best elements from the 39 seconds we all saw in the episode 7 trailer. From Rey on the bike to the Millennium Falcon, it’s all there.
Secondly, if you have a little sith blood in your veins, you may enjoy this new lightsaber shirt that glows in the dark with Red Fluorescent ink.
As a bonus, you won’t want to miss these shoes that feature Karen Hallion’s amazing Belle and Doctor Who mashup design.Read More »Star Wars: The Force Awakens Fan T-Shirt on Tee Fury

Ahoy: we’re talking rumors here, so spoilers ahead and your mileage may vary. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Star Wars: VII got its official subtitle last week, say hi to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Unfortunately, this title does very little in revealing or confirming any major story details. Regardless, there are one or two rumors that have begun to float to the top as the most likely.
It is said that The Force Awakens will take place approximately 30 years after Return of the Jedi. The battle since then has not been an easy one. The empire did not simply fall with the Emperor but instead drew out their fall into a long and bloody conflict.
To start off, it is pretty likely that the film will take place on Tatooine for a bit. From the Star Wars charity segments, we see J.J. Abrams against a desert city backdrop that looks a lot like Tatooine.
The plot is rumored to focus on a young junk scavenger rumored to be named Kira (Daisy Ridley) and a currently nameless Storm Trooper (John Boyega), will call him Troop for now. It seems Kira will rescue Troop after he crash lands near her home, which is possibly an abandoned AT-AT, awesome I know.
Kira somehow comes into possession of strange object, a lightsaber. Exactly how is still unclear, some sources say an alien brings it to her and other’s say she comes across it in a severed hand. After bringing it to an old cyborg (Max Von Sydow), who is old enough to have been present during the clone wars. He recognizes it as a Jedi’s signature weapon and sends them both to some old friends who might be able to help. Rumors are divisive at best as to the cyborg’s allegiances. It is unclear so far what side he fought on and what his intentions are now. Regardless, his actions will most likely somehow point Kira and Trooper towards Han Solo.
Enter Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) who might be a little worse for wear. Rumors about these two state that they no longer own the Millenium Falcon which Oscar Isaac now has. No worries though, we know from leaked set photos that the Millenium Falcon will make an appearance. Han either recognizes it as Luke’s old lightsaber or knows that Luke is the only one that can shed some light. Regardless, this encourages the group to seek out Luke.Read More »Star Wars Episode VII Rumor Roundup
