Even more brand-new Star Wars footage teases homages and plot details

A TV spot for the Force Awakens sees Han Solo on a snowy planet, while hinting at a Skywalker family connection


A TV spot for long-awaited Star Wars sequel The Force Awakens has been unveiled, and as we’ve come to expect it’s chock-full of exciting hints about what to expect from the new movie.


Among the new footage is a scene of Rey fighting off some villains with her trusty staff, Han Solo on an icy planet (rather like his time spent on Hoth in 1980’s The Empire Strikes back, no?), Kylo Ren doing some more cool stuff with his lightsaber and a desperate X-Wing attack on an enemy base. Still no Luke, though

And if we’re not mistaken, that narration seems to be hinting that either Rey (Daisy Ridley), Poe (Oscar Isaac) or Finn (John Boyega) have some sort of family connection to the Skywalker clan – but then we might have guessed that one already.

Frankly, we’re getting disgustingly excited about this movie – December 17th can’t come soon enough.


Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released on 17 December
