Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Review/Breakdown

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is looking amazing yet another in this new teaser trailer! Wow, this trailer is giving the feelings that a Star Wars trailer should. Visually, it blends modern filmmaking with a classic feeling and plenty of practical effects, which do you not see in today's films. It is everything that I could have wanted from a teaser trailer, and to top it all off Han Solo and Chewbacca make an appearance at the end! You have no idea how excited I was when they appeared on screen. Harrison Ford still looks great as an older Han, although Chewie’s eyes look a little strange. Below are my screenshots is my trailer breakdown/review screenshots and commentary. Please do not forget to comment below and let me know what you thought of the trailer.
What can be surmised from Luke's speech in the beginning is that the film is going to follow a Skywalker, probably the child of Luke. My guess is that the girl, Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, is Luke's daughter. 
 A destroyed Stardestroyer on the planet Jakku, the recently released name of the planet.

So, did Luke keep Vader's charred helmet or did someone else find it?

 Obviously Luke and R2D2, except Luke's hand is missing its skin.

 A presumably young Leia when she first learned to use a Lightsaber.

Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, a Rebel X-Wing pilot.

Daisy Ridley as Rey ands John Boyega as Finn running from explosion on Jakku.

Keylo Ren, the film's antagonist. His armor reminds me of Revan's from the Knights of the Old Republic, and he has all the makings of a classic cinema villain.

 These new Stormtroopers are a bit strange to me, but I have faith that it is going to work.

Thank you J.J. Abrams! This set appears to be using mostly practical effects and a large set. Anything this large in the Prequels would have used green screen for sure.

 My guess is that this guy is going to be like the new Boba Fett like character.

 Oh yeah! Han and Chewie are back!

  1. I'm literally giddy over this. This is one movie trailer done right- it's made me so excited for the movie that December can't come soon enough! It makes me want to re-watch the original trilogy to prepare for it. :)

  2. Such a good trailer, from start to end, and it doesn't give anything away about the plot.

    I have a feeling that JJ has a few aces up his sleeve and that has me so excited.

    Here's hoping that all future trailers are incredibly vague. I'd love to go into this film blind.

  3. I'm so happy with J.J. for using practical effects, though I'm sure it was the obvious choice for him. Everything looks so amazing and beautiful! I adore that first shot. At this point I don't even need to see any more -- I already want to see this right now!

    Nice breakdown, James. I enjoyed the screencaps!

  4. Very nice breakdown. I am anticipating seeing this movie very much. The trailer was really cool, focused and
    classic looking. I hope the rest of the trailers are vague to.

  5. It is a great trailer and had real atmosphere. Han Solo and Chewie back? Nuff said.

  6. Spectacular trailer, it's nice to see Han and Chewie back and show more new characters for this teaser. Guess I have to go see it!

  7. Words cannot express how excited I am for this movie!

    1. I think my favorite parts were the music and seeing Harrison Ford at the end :D

  8. Well, it does look like Star Wars, thank heavens. Except for Chewie (my favorite character, of course,) Chewie looks like a costume. Why can't he look more scruffy like he did in the original trilogy? I'm afraid I'm not much more thrilled than before, but I think it's because I'd rather have a guarded expectation and be surprised then get really hyped to be disappoint. I don't know whats wrong with me XD


  9. Yeah, I kind of cried the first time I saw this. Didn't expect to, but then... Han Solo. Han Solo. I couldn't help it.
