The trailers that have been released for the newest installment in the Star Wars universe has been one of agonizing anticipation. Fans have been clamoring for every bit of footage they can put their grubby little fingers on all year long. And I must say, I've been one of these fans.
The teaser that really got us revved up was released last year on Thanksgiving.
After that, fans waited anxiously for the Star Wars Celebration to reveal another teaser that would reveal new footage that would show off more of the new characters and hopefully some of the old ones (we saw 2 of them).
But so far, that's all anything has been: a teaser. But last week, we received our first, full length official trailer for Star Wars: Episode 7 - The Force Awakens and it was glorious!
If you just watched it, you no doubt agree that it's a pretty awesome trailer and with it nearing closer and closer to the official release date, we are bound to see something more right? RIGHT?!
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens director, J. J. Abrams recently confirmed that there will no NO MORE trailers released for the movie and that the most we will get between now and the release is tv spots which usually just showcase footage we've already seen in.
You can hear it from the horse's mouth here:
I for one am excited that he and Disney went this direction to not show off any more than they have to. If you've seen the trailers you can obviously get a great feel for the movie and yet you can see that nothing of the plot has been spoiled or ruined. This is a great skill for trailer editors to strive for as many movie trailers due seem to give away too much.
This, for me, will just make the movie experience that much sweeter in theaters.
But if you are experiencing withdraws from news for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, you can always watch this fan-made supercut of the movie which meshes all of the released footage into one, nice, consolidated video.
