A New Trailer Gives Us a Couple New Scenes to Drool Over
Star Wars’ official South Korean YouTube channel has released a new television spot for J.J. Abrams’ The Force Awakens.
Don’t get too excited, it only features a few snippets of new footage. Of the new scenes, there one that stands out — it is a very cool shot of the First Order’s military parade with Troop Landers and AT-TEs (All-Terrain Tactical-Enforcer) — strong Third Reich overtones in this one:
According to Entertainment Weekly, which dissected the trailer, “Director and co-writer J.J. Abrams has told EW he doesn’t want to explain yet just why the Imperial army is now operating under the moniker of The First Order, nor does he wish to say why the Rebel Alliance is now fighting under the title of the Resistance. But a smart bet is that the war we thought was over at the end of Return of the Jedimerely continued on as both sides regrouped over the decades, with the Imperials clearly not hurting for resources or followers.”
