Trailer is Released for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Friday, November 28, 2014

 

A teaser for the latest installment of the Star Wars series entitled, Star Wars: The Force Awakes, was released Friday.

The trailer was released on iTunes and shown in selected theaters, but quickly found its way to YouTube.

The Star Wars franchise was purchased from George Lucas by Disney, who assigned director JJ Abrams.  The film will feature, Mark Hamlin, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher reprising their roles as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia.

The film has also cast Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Gwendoline Christie, Domhnall Gleeson and Andy Serkis among others.

The 90 second trailers, doesn’t provide any great new ideas, or new information. It’s basically establishes that we will, once again, see slightly modified returns of the old motifs: storm troopers, speeder bikes, light sabers, the Millennium Falcon and John William’s crashing musical score.

But that’s what folks, want to see.

One speculatio: it appears that director JJ Abrams might use actual directing techniques in this film.  The first shot, presumable of the Arrkakisesque Skywalker homeworld of Tatoonine, is interupted by a popup appearance of an unhelmeted stormtrooper in a nice example of the establish and reveal technique. That move is repeated again in a shot of a lone Jedi walking through a forest.  Abrams is thinking cinematically (at least a little), which, even if the film turns out to be a predictable rehash of memes and themes, will be a nice change from the rote and plodding directing of the last three films.
