a new 'star wars: the force awakens' trailer just dropped online
the first TV spot!
In a sign that the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is imminent, Disney has just released the movie's first TV spot. Granted, it's only airing in South Korea, but luckily, there's this thing called the Internet—which means you can watch it right here, right now. Before your inner nerd explodes with joy, be warned that the commercial is only 30 seconds and features just a couple of new shots, but one second of new Star Wars footage is like a single drop of water after a week of being stranded in the desert.
The most notable thing we see here is at the beginning, a wide shot of a military rally being held by the nefarious First Order, which is the movie's successor to the original Empire. So press play, watch, and then repeat. Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18, like you didn't already know.
