Collider are this morning running a rumour that the teaser poster and a new teaser trailer will both be revealed at the J.J. Abrams/Kathleen Kennedy panel at Celebration Anaheim on the 16th. The panel kicks off the event at 10am and goes for an hour, so I’d expect that some time that afternoon we’ll be seeing both on StarWars.com.
Also today, Making Star Wars have a rundown of various shots in the trailer, including…
- at least one Star Destroyer, as well as an Imperial Shuttle
- Poe Dameron shoot down a TIE fighter
- Finn with a blue lightsaber
- BB-8 socketed into an X-wing
- the chrome stormtrooper Captain Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie
- Kylo Ren’s helmeted face
- the CGI alien character
- more of the Falcon
- more of Rey
- Han, Leia, Artoo and Threepio
- the charred helmet of Darth Vader on a podium
Less than 10 days to go…
UPDATE: And if that’s not enough, here’s even more goodness:
As transcribed by The Star Wars Underworld:
The opening sequence begins on the desert landscape, a dusty star destroyer crashed into the sand. Looks like it’s been there for many years.
Following cut, characters Rey and Finn and our favorite rolling robot BB-8 are making their way through a crowd in the fleamarket a very Tatooine-ish type of scenario.
Next, we have Rey looking through the trees, in a Yavin like scenario, as TIE fighters fly overhead.
The next scene he told us about, were pilots running to their ships in their old-school style X-wing gear… yeah… orange!
Now it really starts to get interesting… Towards the end of the trailer, from behind, we will see Han Solo, vest and all. Complete traditional garb, the way we remember him, as he sits down and reacquaints himself with the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon.
As if this wasn’t good enough – brace yourselves – because this last scene has not been described by any other website yet. As far as we know, this is an exclusive…
This last scene shows a gloved hand pulling something out of a pile of ash. As it comes into the clear, it begins to take the shape of Vader’s former helmet… what’s left of it. Here’s the interesting part:
Remains of a skull still reside in the helmet.
