LOS ANGELES - The official trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has made it's online debut, following the its premiere during “Monday Night Football” game on ESPN between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles.
The new footage begins with Daisy Ridley’s Rey as she scavenges what looks like an Imperial Star Destroyer seen in the first trailer — before moving on to John Boyega’s Finn as he questions his place in the galaxy. Then, Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren is revealed as he promises to finish what Darth Vader has started. While the trailer features action shots of the Millennium Falcon, it gives away little about Harrison Ford’s Han Solo and Peter Mayhew’s Chewbacca and, only a showing brief glimpse of Carrie Fisher’s Leia and barely a glimmer of Mark Hamill’s Luke, who seemingly appeared shrouded in a cloak with R2-D2 in the trailer.
