It’s not a trap! The latest trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released earlier this morning. So get together with all your padawan Learners, droids and sith lords and freak out:
Despite the fears that director JJ Abrams might “pull a Lost” and completely bollocks up the series, the second trailer for the seventh Star Wars film looks pretty amazing! Plus there’s no character like Jar Jar Binks in sight.
The trailer premiered at the Star Wars Celebration convention in Los Angeles. Immediately Twitter exploded, with #StarWars and #Chewiewerehome trending worldwide.
It’s an exciting day for Star Wars fans everywhere. Now if only we could fast forward to the 17th of December.
