The New Trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII Is Here

“Chewie, we’re home.”

Still from the trailer

Almost six months after the first teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens gave us our first look at Episode VII, the new trailer is here, and it was worth the wait. “The force is strong in my family,” we hear Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker say, as we see a shot of what looks like Darth Vader’s corroded helmet. “My father has it, I have it, my sister has it,” he says, in a callback to Return of the Jedi, before adding, “You have that power, too.”

Cut to a lightsaber being handed over. Also a quick shot of our villain’s face. And, of course, plenty of TIE fighters and explosions and more of that new spherical droid. Finally, to cap it off, we get our first look at Han Solo in his golden years. “Chewie, we’re home,” Harrison Ford says, with a look of pure joy on his face. It’s hard not to share the feeling.
