With just under two months to go until the premiere, we've been hit with the third (and likely final) trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Last November we got our first look at the new trilogy in the cryptic first trailer, and in April we were given an even more satisfying taste with the second spot. And just yesterday Disney released the official poster.
In it we spend significant time with Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver)—giving us further evidence that the three will be at the center of the film. Rey is adrift and semi-anonymous but seems to have knowledge and motivation to share.
Finn questions his allegiances (presumably in his role as a Stormtrooper) before we see him wielding a blue lightsaber opposite our villain.
And Kylo Ren... well, Kylo Ren is a bad motherfucker who's looking to finish what Darth Vader started. And judging by the explosive chaos that fills the two-and-a-half-minute spot, homeboy is making some serious progress.
He also shares a scene with Poe Dameron, leading us to wonder if he's torturing him or bringing him to the Dark Side (or both). Further argument for the latter comes when Han Salo (Harrison Ford narrates "It's true, all of it: the Dark Side, the Jedi..." as Poe and Finn exchange a passing greeting.
Watch the third trailer above, kick your fandom into high gear, and forget all about the racist morons who started #BoycottStarWarsVII earlier today. Star Wars: Episode VII drops Dec. 18.
