  1. This Trailer was SOOOOO Much better than the actual film. The Disney Machine needs to go Far Far Away. . . and never return.

  2. Wow. The first one minute of this trailer is so bad. The last thirty seconds shouldve been the only thing here. Just five seconds of darkness and then….. 1:00…. BOOM

  3. There's a shot, right as the Millenium Falcon comes back around for it's awesome dive, where you see a lens flare – I know Abrams is famous for them, but it's a minomer. The stuff you saw in, say, Star Trek, or SUPER 8, were called "light leaks", which are technically lens flares but not the type we're used to.

    the lens flare utilized in this trailer is unique to ones you see in cameras from the 70s-80s, and as new technology comes along the lenses in cameras change as well as techniques to stop them – you have to get wider or shorter lenses for different shots or use filters and hoods and whatever, and a director/cinematographer is in charge of deciding which shot gets which lens. Here's a great explanation. It's a really big job and a lot of smaller people do it too. Abrams is a real camera nerd obviously, so it's no surprise that the lens flares you see in that particular shot look like they're straight out of- and I bet I'm right- the same cameras they used filming the original Star Wars movies! They aren't using the same one obviously but digitally recreating it to make the film as immersive as they possibly can, because in filmmaking we understand that the tiniest little thing can mean the difference between audience immersion, or it sticking out and ruining a shot. A lot of viewers don't even know, they just feel it, and that's enough. This sort of career is not for people who aren't perfectionists, yknow?

    Hours and hours and hours are spent making shots look good for mere FRAMES of a film so that you never feel a 'bump' and are taken out of the action, and little things like this lens flare are one of those things. I bet you didn't even think about it, but subconsciously, there'll be people watching who love the original films and have seen them a billion times, will be in that theater watching those sequences and "feel" those details and deep down, enjoy that nostalgia and familiarity. You'll watch this movie with it's breathtakingly laid out shots and daring aerial maneuvers, and feel like it's being filmed with a real camera. It's all on purpose, nothing is a mistake.

    And that makes me think this film will be very good.

  4. Episode 9 trailer got me a little hyped but I’ll never forget how excited I was when the force awakens teaser came out.

  5. George lucas's Lucasfilm star wars is much better creative artistic and expressive than disney's absurd nonsensical retro style star wars

  6. I come back to this now and then. It was so exciting when we first got this, esp BB8 and the new lightsaber style. Badass.

  7. The final fight between Ray and Kylo still annoys me.
    The fact that she even lasted a minute against Kylo doesn’t make sense. He’s a seasoned sith whilst she’s a scavenger who’s only had a lightsaber without training for a couple weeks.

  8. The scene of Kylo walking and then igniting his saber wasnt in the film! Would of been class if it was!!!

  9. Just watched this one 3 1/2 years later.. damn those goosebumps still exists, love the trailer, love the movie!

  10. Damn looking back at this trailer and realising that we’re now less than 6 months from The Rise of Skywalker (it’s August 2019 at the time of writing this comment). Does not feel like it’s been that long.

  11. I know exactly where i was the first time i saw this.
    Say what you want about the movie but the 2/3 trailers are one of the best trailers ever made!!

  12. Too me, The Force Awakens, while having its flaws, was a nice homage to A New Hope. Even then, the trailers for these movies were masterpieces.

  13. Even having long-since seen the movie, I gotta say this is a damn good teaser. Had I seen it when it first debuted, I'd have been hyped. Extremely apprehensive, but hyped.
