First ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Teaser Trailer Features New Characters and Classic Ships

Disney and Lucasfilm have released the first teaser for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (previously) which features new characters, classic ships, and a frightening-looking Sith red lightsaber. The teaser does not reveal much in the way of story, but it does show iconic ships like the Millennium Falcon, X-wings, and TIE fighters. It also appears that one shot of a character riding a landspeeder on what appears to be Tatooine is very close to the leaked concept art for the film we have seen previously.

The Force Awakens is the seventh film in the Star Wars series, and is scheduled to release in theaters on December 18, 2015. The studio has also released a list of the select theaters across North America where the teaser will be playing.
