Star Wars, and its current instalment, the J.J. Abrams-directed** Force Awakens**, didn’t bring much in the way of new footage to Comic-Con this year. We can expect to see at least something more at Disney’s own biennial event, D23, scheduled for this coming weekend. Until then, enjoy a new TV spot for the movie, released by Lucasfilm in Korea.
The Force Awakens, for the three people reading this who have no idea what it might be about, is set 30 years after the events of Return Of The Jedi. Though it took a considerable drubbing at the battle of Endor, the Empire – at least in some form – is not completely gone, with a Dark Side-loyal legion known as the First Order coming to prominence. Which means, of course, that the likes of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), R2D2 (Kenny Baker) and C-3PO (Anthony Daniels) will once again be facing down the new threat.
But there are also the new characters who factor in, including Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega). A lot of the film is still under wraps, but we may learn something more when Disney brings its presentation to Anaheim in a few days. Until then, enjoy unpacking the new fragments of scenes...
Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be out here on December 18.
