A new report suggests that the next trailer of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” may be released next week. Meanwhile, three new posters of the movie from a Wal-Mart store have leaked online, showing some of the main characters from the movie.
According to BritishBoardofFilmClassification, a trailer of the J.J. Abrams movie will be released on Sept. 11. The trailer has a run time of one minute and 39 seconds and is rated PG. It is, however, unclear if this is a new trailer or if it’s a collection of footage that has already been released.
Meanwhile, three new posters of the movie have been posted on the Facebook page of Star Wars Action News. The first poster is of Rey (Daisy Ridley) with the soccer droid BB-8. The picture appears to show the desert planet of Jakku with X-Wing planes of the Resistance forces flying overhead.
The second poster shows all three popular droids R2-D2, C-3PO and BB-8 together. R2-D2 and C-3PO are perhaps the only two characters, who have appeared in all the movies and animation series from the franchise, and they will be back in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
The third poster shows the villains Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) along with their Stormtrooper army and the TIE fighters. From the heroes’ side, the pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Rey, Finn (John Boyega) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) appear in the poster.
In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Abrams explained what it was like to direct some of the cast members in the movie. The director said that although there were moments when the “fanatic part” of him tended to “bubble up” while filming, his main job was to “tell this story” and not be a “fanboy.”
Abrams said that he had extensive discussions with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy about what the universe would be like during the time line of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The “fertile ground” that the upcoming movie will explore, based on those discussions, is a new set of characters who grew up not knowing some of the major veteran characters, and they may not believe the past achievements of the veteran characters.
