Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Official Teaser Trailer

In the last few days, the first official teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens has been released to the general public. I remember a far more naïve time in my life when the mere mention of this would have created goose bumps on my skin: yes, I was raised and indoctrinated by “The Force”! Given my valid concerns about the output of Hollywood (particularly that of Disney), I was immediately raising an eyebrow when it was announced that Disney had acquired Lucasfilm, the Star Wars franchise, would be making a new “Wars” film shortly and that it would be helmed by Disney stalwart J.J. Abrams. I have no doubt in my mind that these new films will not feel like previous Star Wars efforts. There will be an “undercurrent” of something untoward, perhaps somewhat indefinable but it will be there never the less. I base this conclusion on what I have come to understand about the way Disney produces its material. I have written a fair amount on this subject in the past and included some links below for further reading.
Here is the link to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer. Make of it what you will. Obviously there is little yet to glean visually from this teaser, but the voiceover itself says much.
"There has been an awakening. Have you felt it...? The dark side... and the light."

Namaste Carl, thanks for the trailer, we just watched all six episodes in order last week, this link was a timely adjunct. I am already looking forward to your analysis after it has been released.

May I also take this opportunity to wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season. Hopefully you can get a good rest from the 9-5.

In Lak' ech, prosper with love.... use the force....

Cheers Chris. I did a similar thing about 12 months ago but it was more for research purposes - noting symbolism, numerology, themes, that sort of thing.
It is easy to love those films. Although I do wonder sometimes if that is a by product of the way they were made, as I noted in my book.
Hope you enjoy the holiday my friend!
All the best,
