First Order view Star Wars Episode VII Agust 10 Tv spot Korea

It’s really only one image.

Still.

Lucasfilm released a new TV spot in Korea, released internationally via the Interwebs yesterday.  It’s brief, with scenes previewed before but recut into a new TV trailer, complete with the new Star Wars Episode VII logo in Korean.  But it begins with something new.  JJ Abrams & Co. clearly have reached back to the darker side of our own history to reveal the evil behind The First Order–the villains of The Force Awakens.

The First Order, especially as shown in the opening image, should evoke the New Order of Nazi Germany in World War II.  This is further bolstered by the name of the Rebels in the post Return of the Jedi galaxy–they are now the Resistance.  Resistance groups were those factions opposing the Axis states during World War II.

Abrams is also pulling propaganda imagery created by Goebbels to create awe and fear of Hitler and his ilk.  The red banners seen in the preview similar to those carrying swastikas in Hitler’s regime.

We have a dark empire coming to the Star Wars galaxy.

Check out the trailer:

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…

Star Wars VII X-wing pilot

Why go see it in theaters in front of one of the lackluster holiday offerings this season when you can watch it for free at home?  It’s the teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.  And it’s a short 88 seconds, with much of the teaser spent on slow pans and the logo roll.

It’s what we’ve been waiting for.   A look at Star Wars in the hands of Disney and J.J. Abrams.
