STAR WARS: The Second Teaser Description

– by L-R

UPDATE: We've been contacted with a denial that this is, in fact, the second teaser, but we still have multiple corroborating reports on the following dialogue and sequence of events. 

This is a special dispatch from a secret Rebel Base, so I was unable to give this post my usual visual flair, but I assure you, it has information that you want to hear.


And now, the exciting continuation...

They have started showing people the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the one that is going to be shown to the masses at Star Wars Celebration this April 16-19.


For one:  It looks like Lupita N’yongo’s alien character, referred to around our speculator-circles as “Rose” actually does have an important flashback story to tell to Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) and that it might include a sad R2-D2 beep and some Padawans past.

It’s Lupita’s “Rose” that opens the trailer:

"I shall show you the story..."

Puzzlewood forest. Or a forest at least, with a large castle structure.

"of who you seek..."

A city in a tropical location, maybe close to the water, this is where we theorize our two heroes of a New Force Age find “Rose” and hear the story about the strange object that they brought to her. 

"the one who taught me..."

A cloaked figure from behind standing atop a mountain/hill on Skelling Michael Island (guess who!).

"I know why the weapon came to you."

We’re in the darkness of a cave and the voice-over speaking the character herself is a small blueish alien with a CG face. She stands with John Boyega’s Finn as he takes a lightsaber hilt and IGNITES it…

...and it’s GREEN.

Behind him, Daisy Ridley’s Rey looks disturbed at this turn of events.

Then the trailer really kicks off. Right now it has John Williams score and it's hard to tell if it's temp from the Original Trilogy or the new music that was recorded last year.

As the score picks up, we see elder Han Solo wearing a long  brown duster and looking past the camera. Totally recognizably Solo.

A black TIE Fighter attacking the forest location we saw earlier - this is probably the attack on "Rose" and out heroes that ends our info dump about Luke’s past.

Kylo Ren from a point of view shot approaching someone on the ground. His mask is dark with silver accents, the Darth Reven influence is very much there, some people who leaked accurate pictures are totally gonna get sued by Lucasfilm.  Excalisaber, the cross-guard saber is ignited.

People running in tropical/maybe-by-the-water city seen earlier, as it’s under attack by at least the black TIE fighter.

R2-D2 makes a forlorn beep, we think this might be as he watches Luke abandon the politics of the universe in favor of exile.

C-3PO and Princess Leia in what looks like a base command center, the interior of the Rebel Base sets that everyone was taking drone photos of.

The voice over changes characters to a dark rasp. This is probably Andy Serkis’ mystery character again:

"Don't get too sentimental."

As we’re being spoken too, we see Han looking at Leia and then walking away from her towards the Falcon with Chewbacca. This is a fateful moment for the couple.

Back in the the snowy forest where we saw Kylo Ren in teaser one, we get our first peek at the climax of the film. It’s a relatively slow shot of Finn holding the green saber, looks like he's protecting Rey from someone (Presumably Kylo Ren) as we hear Harrison Ford say "You can do this kid, I believe in you."

AHHHHHH! AHHHH! I’m already getting kind of Han Solo emotional just from picturing this shot.

Ok, but calm down, because that’s not the kicker:

Final shot of the trailer is a close-up of a hooded head looking up to reveal Luke.

The Force Awakens.

Putting this trailer on Avengers: Age of Ultron come May 1st seems like a no-brainer. But since this is the internet and Star Wars Celebration isn’t accessible to everyone, anytime between here and April 20th would be a good time to suddenly stop the world with the return of the classic Star Wars trilogy characters.

Also: GREEN SABER? What happened to Anakin's saber? How does the saber go from Endor to where-ever we see Finn turn it on for the first time. What’s up with the Desert Planet? Do we not care about that anymore?

Either way, at this point, it’s time to start showing us more Star Wars as we ramp up to December.

This trailer is going to fry minds, and if you’ve been keeping up with all the rumors recently, solidify some things for you.
