First look–New Star Wars Episode VII trailer and Kylo Ren promo art

Chewy and Han Episode VII screencap

Stop everything.  It’s another <<Day a New Star Wars Trailer is Released>>. 

The rest of the Internet can shut down for the rest of the day.  Nothing else matters.  Move along.  Or, that is, watch the trailer and then move along.  But we don’t think you can watch it only once.

And look who is featured in this second of the previews released by Abrams & Co. so far.  Luke and R2-D2, Chewy and Han.  And all those new guys from the first preview.

A chrome stormtrooper?  Neat.  A downed Star Destroyer?  Also neat.  White TIE Fighters?  Oh, boy.

What circumstances would result in someone holding Darth Vader’s charred helmet?  Is some part of Anakin Skywalker still alive?  Do the Sith have a katra?  Did Abrams forget he was making a Star Wars, not a Star Trek, flick?

Questions, questions.  Just watch the trailer over and over after the break, and check out the new poster art floating around Twitter today, as well as how to see live streaming of this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim…

Pretty fun stuff.

Several websites, including posted the following photos today that seem to have originated from Twitter.  If they aren’t real promotional posters then they are pretty nice fan-made images, featuring Kylo Ren, who appears to be Episode VII’s resident bad guy with the slick saber.

Possibly covers to some tie-in comic book prequels?  They could be anything.  If you know the source or artist, drop us a line so we can give credit where credit is due.

You can watch live streaming panels this year from the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim via this link.
