The Millennium Falcon Flies Again

I have to admit I almost cried when I saw the Millennium Falcon soar towards the end of the teaser of the upcoming Star Wars movie,  "The Force Awakens."   From what I know, the film is set 30 years after Episode 6: Return Jedi so we see new faces as well as a new droid in the trailer. Then there is a new Dark Lord with a new lightsaber.

I know a year is a long wait but I hope J.J. Abrams make it worth the wait and does not disappoint. In the meantime, let me share with you the official teaser of the movie. This is what we have for now so enjoy. And yes, may the force be with all of us.

UPDATE (11/30): So what's this issue about John Boyega,playing a Stormtrooper? He's the first actor who appears on this teaser and many were unsettled that he's black.  I am not one of them and I don't remember any reference in the last seven episodes that all stormtroopers are white. So people calm down and accept it.

UPDATE (12/1): I just learned tonight that the voice on the trailer belongs to Andy Serkis (Gollum in Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit).  He's in the cast of the movie too but I am speculating that he could be doing another motion capture performance and be transformed into a CGI character. I hope not an updated Jar Jar Binks.  An Ewok will be just fine.
