New Star Wars: The Force Awakens TV Spot Features New Footage and Han Solo/Rey Bonding
After a year of remarkable restraint, we're finally starting to think that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is giving too much away. A couple of months ago, we had no idea what was going to happen in the new film, and now we have at least a sketchy idea of the plot, which is frankly more than we wanted. But at least this new TV spot, while it does feature flashes of new footage, doesn't give away the farm:



We've seen most of this footage in previous trailers, but there are a few new glimpses of Rey and Finn escaping the TIE fighter attack, as well as a few new looks at the Dark Side and some Kylo Ren dialogue: "Nothing will stand in our way. I'll show them the Dark Side." Most significantly, there's a cute moment where Han hands Rey what looks like a lightsaber saying "You might need this." Father-daughter bonding, perhaps? (Not a spoiler, that's complete speculation on my part, but speculation that wouldn't have been possible a few months ago!)

Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out on December 18.
