(Warning - the following contains a brand new trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, including a whole lot of brand new and previously unseen footage. If you don't want to see any more of the movie before December, proceed with caution. Alternatively, why are you still reading this? The trailer's below...)

Now, in a few paragraphs' time, there'll be breathing space for me to stop and take a closer look at the brand new Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens trailer that's just hit the internet, and at exactly what its brand spanking new footage reveals about the movie's plot.


Which you're presumably already watching, having skipped these sentences entirely. After all...

A New Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Trailer Has Arrived, and It's Awesome

The best part about that trailer, though (aside from the fact that IT'S A BRAND NEW STAR WARS TRAILER)?

As it turns out:

The New Trailer Might Just Tell Us a Whole Lot About Episode VII

Particularly intriguing reveals include the fact that:

It Sure Seems as Though BB-8 Has Been Sent to Watch Over Rey

After all, she asks him where he's from, just before revealing that she's waiting for her family. Speaking of which:

Rey Is 'Waiting for Her Family'

Which, sure, could simply mean she's an orphan -- but it sure does make her seem like a Skywalker of some sort...


Flamethrower Stormtroopers are Predictably Awesome

Which is more an obvious statement than analysis, but even so.

Those TIE Fighters Might Just Be Flying in Front of More Than One Moon

Which might mean nothing whatsoever -- or Tatooine...


The Crossguard Lightsaber isn't Getting Any Less Cool

Despite the initial mixed reaction...

Finn and Rey Are Definitely Calling Themselves by Those Names

Unless, of course, J.J. Abrams filmed a whole extra scene just to mess with us.

C-3PO Is Definitely Still Part of the Team

What with him hanging out with Leia and Poe Dameron and all...

X-Wings Remain the Greatest Thing Ever Invented

Especially when filmed from their own wing.

Though TIE Fighters Fighting X-Wings Is Almost as Awesome


Chewbacca Gets His Own Close-Up

Again, more an observation, but even so. Just look at that Wookiee!

And, finally:

Rey Is Definitely Going to Face Off Against Kylo Ren

With the fight -- from the looks of the other footage we've seen -- seemingly set to go on a while, and transition from day to night...

The best part of all that, though?

We get to see the whole damn movie in just a month and a half!

What do you reckon, though?
