Wake the kids up early – there’s a new Star Wars trailer and it’s amazing!!!
A brand new trailer for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS (and possibly last full trailer before the movie is released in December) debuted last night during ESPN’s Monday Night Football and it almost broke the internet! The next chapter in the epic Star Wars saga takes place 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi and is already shattering advance ticket sale records (you can click here to purchase your advance tickets).
This is one of those movies that you must see, and you must bring your kids to see because absolutely everyone is going to be talking about. This isn’t just a movie, it’s an event, and everyone wants to be part of an event! While there’s lots of familiar faces in this movie – I got chills when Harrison Ford’s Han Solo appears on the screen – this movie focuses on new characters including John Boyega’s former stormtrooper Finn, Daisy Ridley’s scavenger Rey and Oscar Isaac’s X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron.
This trailer gave me full on chills and I loved seeing Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Chewbacca and R2-D2 back on screen, but I’m so excited to see what these new characters – both good and bad – will do! This is one of those rare movies that you want to share with your kids so bad because it means you can go back and watch all the original movies together to prepare for this one. You get to share all the excitement that you had when you first watched the original movies with your kids and then get even more excited to watch the latest installment together. It’s so awesome to be able to share something with our kids that was such a big part of pop culture when we were growing up. I really can’t wait for this movie!
Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ve already bought your advance tickets!
