Is it possible to be sick of Star Wars: The Force Awakens yet? Even with a little over a week left until release? We'll leave that for you to decide, as we're still plenty excited about the movie, even with all this new stuff that has been dropped off at our doorstep. Today, we have three new TV spots, a featurette that looks at the evolution of the Lightsaber and a bunch of cool new photos. BB-8 finally gets its own character poster, and General Leia gets a second character banner.
The Evolution of the Lightsaber sneak peek offers a look at Kylo Ren's new red lightsaber with the blazing cross-guard and how it came into existence. The first new TV spot is exactly the same one we saw yesterday, except that a countdown in the middle of the footage teases that we are one day closer to release. The second new TV spot actually has never-before-seen footage of Finn and Rey flying the Millennium Falcon. Finn takes a seat behind the blaster cannon, screaming, 'We need cover!' The iconic ship takes a hit, but the duo are able to recover. We also get to see more from the massive X-Wing battle as Poe Dameron leads an attack on the Starkiller base.
The third TV Spot shows a cool new shot of the X-Wing squadron flying into the Starkiller base. These latest teasers arrive with 6 new images. The first shows Han Solo and General Leia in a loving embrace. Chewbacca gets his own glamour shot. And we get to see Rey and BB-8 reacting to a First Order invasion. We also get a shot of Poe Dameron discussing his X-Wing mission with BB-8. And a new shot of General Hux discussing his plan with Kylo Ren as Captain Phasma looks on.
