Princess Leia Cries, Finn Gets a Lightsaber in Full Star Wars Trailer

Posted on October 20, 2015

The full trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out and it's got lots of interesting things to ponder. The trailer opens with a masked figure, presumably Rey (Daisy Ridley) rappeling into an abandoned ship of some kind. We hear the voice of the pirate Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong'o) asking, "Who are you?” "I'm no one," Rey replies. We then see her striding through the desert with her droid, BB-8, rolling along beside her.

Next we see General Hux addressing the troops of the First Order in a panoramic view. Then we cut to see Finn (John Boyega) wearing a storm trooper's armor. He says in voiceover. "I was ready to do one thing. But I've got nothing to fight for." Later he appears to be fighting with the resistance, so it appears he was raised to be a storm trooper but somehow saw the lights and joined the other side.

Now it gets dark. Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is on the bridge of a large ship, then addressing a mangled Darth Vader mask. He tells the mask, "Nothing will stand in our way. I will finish what you started." Is Ren part of a cult that worships Vader and wants to bring back the Dark Side of the Force? Ren is also shown using the Force in battle and to torture Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac).

Now we see Finn and Ren while Ren asks Han Solo (Harrison Ford), "Those stories about what happened...?" Han replies, "It's true. All of it. The Dark Side. The Jedi. They're real."

Now we hear Maz Kanata saying "The Force. It's calling to you....Just let it in." Is Maz calling to Finn to embrace his destiny as a Jedi? He is shown with a blue lightsaber about to fight Kylo Ren, who uses a red lightsaber with a cross guard. Kylo Ren is a deadly knight with great power. If Finn is really a baby Jedi in training, this battle may not end very well for him. Unless he's somehow related to Mace Windu, the great Jedi swordsman played by Samuel L. Jackson? Then maybe he could give Ren a real fight.

We also get a shot of Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) crying on someone's shoulder in the trailer and we're worried it's because Han Solo has been killed. We remember Harrison Ford saying in interviews he would only come back to Star Wars if he gets to die in a blaze of glory. We hope he changed his mind. Take a look:
