But what we do know is that this thing has some beautiful sets and shots, holy hell. This looks like a magnificently crafted film when it comes to its numerous technical aspects (costumes, sets, etc.), with that opening shot of Rey (Daisy Ridley) waltzing around an abandoned spaceship alone giving me shivers. And oh my God, Harrison Ford looks awesome as Han Solo. Is he...is he actually emoting? Good for him! Plus, Oscar Isaac looks to be in trouble, poor Finn (John Boyega) is trying to hold his own in a lightsaber fight against Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and our first look at Leia (Carrie Fisher)!
I don't think there really needed to be any marketing to get everyone to go see a new Star Wars movie, but goddamn if this new trailer and its marketing forefathers haven't done the trick.
