When we reported on the last trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens we, along with every other Star Wars fan in the world, thought that would be it. There would be no more new trailers or teaser scenes until the movie’s premiere. Oh how we were wrong, as Slash Film is reporting on a different trailer that dropped in Japan! It’s not a recut of the current or past trailers as there are just glimpses of new scenes and dialogue!
Watch the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer from Walt Disney Studios Japan below.
Director J.J. Abrams had promised that Force Awakens trailer from last month would be it, but apparently he didn’t count on international marketing. While the Japanese trailer isn’t wall-to-wall new footage, there’s a lot of new stuff to see here. Like Rey encountering Kylo Ren, or meeting Finn for the first time. And there’s new dialogue to go with those scenes as well. Still no Luke, though.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens December 18 in the U.S. and Japan. Daisy Ridley stars as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, and Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke. Returning from the original trilogy are Harrison Ford as Han Solo, Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, and Kenny Baker as R2-D2.
