“Chewie, we’re home.”
Fans of the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens, or Episode VII, were treated today to a brand new teaser for the upcoming film.
This marks the first new footage to be shown since the first Star Wars teaser was released in November, and it was very much worth the wait:
Fans are given a closer look at the fresh cast of Star Wars characters including Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron, John Boyega's Finn, and Daisy Ridley's Rey.
In addition to getting a better look at these newcomers, we get some tantalizing shots of Darth Vader's helmet, the Millennium Falcon, and familiar faces.
People, we have our first clip of Han Solo and Chewie back in action!
The Force Awakens teaser was unveiled during the opening of Star Wars Celebration Live, a four day convention at the Anaheim Convention Center.
According to Deadline, the teaser was revealed by director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy during a panel discussion with Isaac, Ridley, and Boyega.
This allowed for the plot to become a little less vague. Isaac described his character as an X-Wing fighter pilot "sent on a mission by a certain princess."
His character then meets Boyega, who's a stormtrooper.
"Their fates are forever intertwined," he says.
