A new trailer has been released for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens via Disney’s Japanese Studios. A new international poster has also been released with the trailer. In the trailer, new footage was intertwined with some of the footage from the supposed final trailer.

The new footage shows Rey (Daisy Ridley) and her robot companion B-88 on the desert planet Jakku from new points. It then shows the new enemy of Episode VII, the First Order, and the main villains Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) attack Jakku and burning down settlements. A new shot also shows both Rey and Finn (John Boyega) introducing each other.

It then goes to familiar shots with sky battles and of a rebel base. There was also a new shot of Leia (Carrie Fisher) and C-3PO (Anthony Daniels). The new trailer also showed Rey being held by Kylo Ren, his lightsaber at her neck. At the end of the trailer, a voiceover, possibly from character Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong’o) states: “Hope is not lost. It is found.” Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will release December 18, 2015.
