What? Who gets emotional over a movie trailer? (sniff) #TheForceAwakens— Clark Gregg (@clarkgregg) October 20, 2015
The trailer begins slow and serious, capturing the lives of adolescents Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) who discover the tales of the Jedi and the Dark Side are not historical fiction, but very much real and present as the pair is swept up in the renewed turmoil.
We catch our first glimpse of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia in a endearing embrace with Han Solo, yet Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) remains absent.
The movie is set to release on Dec. 17.
