HOT DAYUM! These are all the words I can muster after watching the new STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS trailer four times on our big screen TV.  Unlike the previous trailers and teasers, we get a little more of a glimpse of the film’s narrative – well, sorta. Take a look.

What does it all mean? I don’t know. Rey (Daisy Ridley) discovers things long buried. There’s a stormtrooper with a conscious (John Boyega).  And it appears Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is out to finish the legacy Darth Vader begat.  I don’t even want to speculate further than that, but I highly encourage you to weigh in below with your theories. That is, unless, you’re like me and want to remain as clear/ blind as possible walking into the theater come December 18.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS opens on December 18. You can now buy your advance tickets – which we strongly urge you do.
