The first official glimpse of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens serves as a fitting reminder that a galaxy far, far away is actually much closer than we thought.
While returning cast-members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are absent from the 88-second clip, fans are given a first look at the younger generation of cast-members to feature in this, the first of three planned sequels. Opening some 30-years after Return of the Jedi, the teaser kicks off with British actor John Boyega racing across a desert landscape dressed in full Stormtrooper uniform.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, opens in theaters December 18, 2015. Watch the video trailer below.
