"Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" is directed by Jj Abrams and is set to hit theaters on December 18th, 2015. Trailer: »
There is little point in Clothes on Film delving too deeply into the first trailer for director J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars sequel The Force Awakens, mainly because it is just so much speculation at the moment, which of course is part of the fun, but also because there are far smarter (or more interested) minds on the Internet who will do a better job.
That said how can you watch that trailer and not have an opinion? So here are ours, and with no contribution whatsoever from Star Wars VII costume designer Michael Kaplan. If he told us anything at this stage he would be thrown in the Sarlacc pit with us soon after him. Rest assured though, when we can talk to Mr Kaplan about The Force Awakens, we Will.
Perhaps the best compliment we can pay to what’s revealed in this trailer is just how retro it looks. »

It’s the reboot round two. A year in advance of its December release, Disney has given us the first glimpse of the 7th episode in the Star Wars series, The Force Awakens. Directed by J.J. Abrams, the film picks up 30 years after Return of the Jedi. There’s not a whole lot to glean from, but presumably enough to get the diehards excited. »

As a young kid growing up, I have very special and fond memories of all things Star Wars. But far removed from Landspeeders and Lando were thoughts of 9 Star Wars movies. While my memory of where I read it is a bit foggy, I’m pretty damn sure I read it in a Return of the Jedi magazine all those years ago. It wasn’t a big spread, more like a paragraph somewhere that blew my young mind. Lying down on the couch, I promptly put the mag on the floor and vomited all over the front cover. Stomach bugs aside, it’s a memory that’s stayed with me for 30 odd years and one that often crops up when ever I think Star Wars. But as we all know, back then it didn’t take long for the hopes and dreams of Star Wars fans to go up like Alderaan, »

It's finally here! Disney and Lucasfilm have released the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens! Does it live up to all your expectations? At 88 seconds long, we're introduced to two new characters played by John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. We get to see a speedy new droid, a quick glimpse of an X-Wing heading into battle, and of course the return of the Millennium Falcon. A new villain is also teased, as he/she ignites a fiery red lightsaber. The force is awakening and the Sith have returned. While short, this first teaser does a nice job of setting up the story, and it proves that some of the spoilers we've heard are true.
It has been nine long years since the last live-action Star Wars movie, and an even longer two year wait to see the first footage since the movie was announced in 2012. Now »
And now, there is actual footage from the next Star Wars movie out there, and it’s been a long time since 1998’s The Phantom Menace teaser introduced us to the world of that trilogy. This also being the holiday weekend, it’s a bit difficult not to let nostalgia take me while this Star Wars trailer plays, but at a scant 88 seconds, it was made to be re-watched until I could mute that feeling and focus on what was actually happening.
Now that I’ve seen the Millennium Falcon do an in-atmosphere loop a few dozen times, I can check out the trailer for all the reveals and mysteries it contains.
We start with John Boyega in a practical location, which is fantastic for a number of reasons, but for me most resonated as completely opposite of the Gungans In The Mist beginning for The Phantom Menace trailer. Presumably, »
It's been a little over two years since George Lucas sold the Star Wars universe to Disney. Those two years have been full of tantalizing rumor and ambitious corporate theatrics. We know that Star Wars: Episode VII will take place many years after Return of the Jedi. We know that the original cast will return alongside an all-star squad of up-and-comers. Director J.J. Abrams has subtly pitched VII as a kind of artisanal Star Wars film: Shot on 35 mm film, with an emphasis on practical effects, a soundtrack by John Williams, and a life-sized Millennium Falcon. We know that »

It’s here, it’s here, it’s here! The first trailer “Star Wars: The Force Awakened” dropped on Black Friday. #BreakTheInternet came a few weeks later than anticipated. Go watch it. I’ll wait. … Okay. You back? 88 seconds is not a very long time, but it’s more than enough to cram in tons of hints as to the state of the galaxy, three decades after the death of the Emperor. With the Extended Universe officially stricken from the record, anything is possible. Did the Empire crumble into infighting, Grand Moffs clamoring to fill the void in power? Did the New Republic get a foothold in the Core worlds, or are they still pushing the front to liberate thick pockets of civilization? Or have they even formed at all? These questions and more are definitely not answered in the trailer. But! It did hold small hints to the »

It's a brief but glorious glimpse of what Jj Abrams and Disney have in store for next Christmas - consider us excited. Here's our look at some of the best bits from the teaser...
1. John Boyega is playing a Stormtrooper
This is a plot point that had long been rumoured, but the trailer's opening - an impressive wide shot followed by Boyega's appearance - has confirmed it. The rolling sand dunes signal a return to Tatooine, while the panic etched on Boyega's face seems to signal a crash landing. A call back to C-3Po and R2-D2's arrival at »
“There has been an awakening – have you felt it?” Asks an ominous voice in the opening moments of the teaser.
The 88-second tease, which debuted at 30 select theaters and on iTunes on Friday, offers the first real glimpse at the highly anticipated Disney movie, the plot details of which have been kept tightly under wraps.

Disney/Lucasfilm have unveiled the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, also know as Episode VII, the continuation of the Jedi story that concluded with the destruction of the Death Star at the end of Return of the Jedi. It starts with a shot of John Boyega and has a glimpse of the Millennium Falcon. From there? Well. This is what we've all been waiting for, our first glimpse after so many secrets. May the Force Be With You. Along with Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford, the cast includes Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o, Adam Driver, Warwick Davis and Peter Mayhew. »

The highly anticipated trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (also known as Episode VII) just debuted online, offering the first official look at some of the big characters and exotic places we're going to see when the J.J. Abrams-directed film bows next year. Picking up thirty years after Return of the Jedi left off, The Force Awakens brings back original stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher, though it falls to new additions like John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, and Adam Driver to lead the series into the future (even if that future takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far away). This teaser runs a mere 88 seconds, but as a tasty little morsel of Force-related goodness, who can quibble? Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be out December 18, 2015. »

During an interview on breakfast show TV-am, the actor revealed a discussion he had with George Lucas about reprising his role in a new film sometime "around 2011".
Hamill explained: "[George] said once, would I consider playing an Obi-Wan [Kenobi] type character handing Excalibur down to the next generation.
"At the time I said, 'When would that be?' and he said, 'Oh, around 2011'."
