Last month, we reported that composer John Williams is recording new music to be used in the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, although it wasn't known when the trailer may debut. Today, Badass Digest has the first description of this trailer, which will debut sometime within the next four to five weeks.
Take a look at the brief trailer description below, then read on for more details.
"If my sources are correct (and this is a big IF. These sources have been mighty reliable in the past, and if they're wrong I believe they're wrong honestly, ie they're not bullshitting me), it'll be short. And when I say short, I mean one minute long. It's going to have The Force Theme played on woodwinds, softly, over flashing images of the main leads, each fading to black. There's no dialogue, just reveals of the characters. And then the music swells up into a full orchestral piece - perhaps what John Williams recorded this weekend? - and we hear a female voice, likely Daisy Ridley's, saying 'Wake up.'
And then the title card appears - Star Wars: The Force Awakens - and we see the Millennium Falcon, firing blasters, coming right at the camera."
There have been rumors that the trailer will be attached to prints of this weekend's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which could make sense since it may very well be the biggest movie of 2014, but it seems unlikely that Disney would debut a trailer attached to a Lionsgate movie. Another unconfirmed rumor states that the first footage will air on ABC, which is owned by Disney. It's also possible that the footage will be attached to Disney's upcoming musical Into the Woods, which opens on Christmas Day, but that hasn't been confirmed either.
