Star Wars The Force Awakens Teaser Trailer

"There has been an awakening. Have you felt it? The dark side and the light."

We finally get our first look at the new Star Wars moving releasing in 2015 and I was not disappointed. To show my excitement, here is my breakdown of the trailer with screenshots of various point in the trailer.

To start we get an still shot overlooking a desert, which I assume is Tatooine, and a voice saying "There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?" An unhelmeted stormtrooper shows up on screen looking startled and scared. We transition to a droid running through some ruins. It is hard to say if it is running to deliver a message or escaping in fear but it is definately in a rush.

Next up is a cutscene of stormtroopers preparing to launch an assault. It is a horror-esque scene with stormtroopers in a dropship of sorts then getting their weapons ready with the scene ending at an overview of the bay door opening.

We return back to Tatooine at which see a lady on a speederbike rushing towards some ruins. I can't tell if it is the same ruins of the ruins that the droid is in but I certainly want to tie the two and say that the events are related.

Now we get a close up cockpit view of what I assume is a rebel soldier (possibly a New Republic pilot) which transitions to X-Wings skimming rapidly over an ocean/lake. At first glance, I would say we're on Naboo or similar style planet (the alternative would be Alderaan  but if we're in the same timeline as the original trilogy, then that is obviously ruled out).

We now get the remainder of the voiceover for this trailer with the voice saying "The dark side and the light." At this point we see a dark side user in a forest open their lightsaber which turns out to have two additional smaller blades perpendicular to the original. It looks like this person was either injured in a fight or escaped from some sort of sabotage from their movement which would backup to some extent why this person opened their lightsaber to begin with.

Finally, the trailer closes with the Millennium Falcon squaring off against two tie fighters back on Tatooine set to the Star Wars theme.
