When took over the Star Wars franchise, we should have expected some shenanigans. For quite some time now, each Wednesday brought with it another trailer posting on the official Star Wars YouTube account. Of course, these were all classic trailers having nothing to do with the new films, but the thought was that the trailers were a sort of countdown to some sort of big Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens news...maybe in October, which, as ComicBook.com points out, would be the one-year anniversary of Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm.
Unfortunately, nothing that exciting has surfaced. Instead, we recently got the re-posting of the trailer for the 1981 re-release of Star Wars. Weird. Yup, here it is. No idea what's going on over there, but maybe you haven't seen this classic trailer before. Enjoy.
