Editor Adds Generous Amount of J.J. Abrams’ Signature Lens Flare to the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Teaser Trailer

Editor Tom Barker has added a generous amount J.J. Abrams’ signature lens flare to the Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens teaser trailer. Abrams famously used the lens flare technique on his 2009 film Star Trek to the point that even he said it was “overdone, in some places” during an interview with io9.

For comparison, here is the original version of the teaser.
