‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ has finished shooting, but we’re still none the wiser when it comes to the film’s characters, outside of Han, Leia, Luke etc.
But could we finally get a glimpse of John Boyega and Daisy Ridley in costume? According to latest rumours, that’s exactly what we can expect in the first teaser trailer, which is rumoured to be coming in the next “four or five weeks”.
According to the folks at Badass Digest, the upcoming ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ trailer will be heading our way soon… and they even have a short description of what we can expect.
“It’ll be short,” they explain. “And when I say short, I mean one minute long. It’s going to have The Force Theme played on woodwinds, softly, over flashing images of the main leads, each fading to black. There’s no dialogue, just reveals of the characters.
And then the music swells up into a full orchestral piece - perhaps what John Williams recorded this weekend - and we hear a female voice, likely Daisy Ridley’s, saying ‘Wake up.’
And then the title card appears - Star Wars: The Force Awakens - and we see the Millennium Falcon, firing blasters, coming right at the camera.”
Of course, this is just what Badass Digest have been told by sources and with no way to verify the information, they admit that it could easily be false. But if you ask me, it sounds exactly the sort of tease that would create buzz while keeping a lid firmly on the film itself.
However, the folks at Making Star Wars have an entirely different description… and it seems to include a lot more action.
“Fade in from black, shots of the dunes, Boyega pops in to the shot from below. He’s wearing white Stormtrooper armor but he doesn’t have a helmet on. In the teaser we only see Boyega and Ridley really. Ridley boards a speeder. She has a helmet on like Endor Leia, a design with pop-down goggles.”
“A shot of Ridley’s speeder approaching the station (the TMZ set we saw). We see the new Stormtroopers on a transport. The flight is turbulent. New X-wings. TIE Fighters. The new ball droid that’s a gyroscope and belongs to ‘Kira’. The new ‘Sith’ is also revealed. He has a cross-beam lightsaber and the beam is a bit wilder and more super-charged than your normal lightsaber. The Falcon.”
Of course, this a quite a difference when compared to the first trailer description but it’s entirely possible that these different sources have seen entirely different trailers. After all, the folks at Disney may not have released anything just yet, but they’re likely not wasting any time when it comes to putting the material together.
Whether or not this is what we see in the first teaser trailer remains to be seen but if the rumours are true, it won’t be long before we find out.
‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ heads to cinemas on 18 December 2015.
