New trailer for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' is on the horizon

I feel like we've been saying this for July (which we most definitely have), but a new trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII- The Force Awakens is coming very, very soon, which is incredibly exciting news. The last look we got at the seventh installment in the Star Wars saga came back in August, when Disney and Lucasfilm unveiled a quick 15-second Instagram teaser that showed star John Boyega's Finn with Luke Skywaler's iconic lightsaber in what looked like a duel with Adam Driver's Kylo Ren. And while director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm have also debuted two teaser trailers and a behind-the-scenes reel, there has been no full trailer to give the rabid fans of Star Wars any indication of what this film will be about. Because of that, impatient Star Wars geeks across the galaxy (yours truly included) have been waiting with baited breath for a full, complete look at the journey that we'll be headed on in The Force Awakens. There were rumors that we'd be getting the trailer at Comic-Con or D23, as well as some Force Friday talk and mid-September chatter. In the world of Star Wars, this trailer has been a mysterious enigma haunting everybody. Well, according to some very trusted sources in the galaxy, it appears that Abrams is finally ready to lift the curtain on The Force Awakens.

According to Making Star Wars' Jason Ward and Screen Crush's Mike Sampson, the third and final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be announced by Lucasfilm very soon (Screen Crush and a separate source are both citing tomorrow) and will premiere on Monday, October 19th, the same day that tickets go on sale. Ward seems to believe that the trailer will premiere during Monday Night Football and will go online shortly after. He also is stating that a new logo will be revealed, even though other sources seem to refute that. John Boyega also made a vague comment on Twitter about how he asked J.J. for a trailer, but he didn't confirm or deny anything. All in all, there are so many dates and times flying around for this thing that I believe it'll drop anytime between now and the Monday Night game on October 19. So what exactly will we see in this trailer? I'm not honestly sure. Probably different shots of the same stuff that we've seen already, as well as a general hint of the plot (it'll definitely support or refute the synopsis that Making Star Wars put together). We might see some new characters like Lupita Nyong'o's Maz Kanata or Andy Serkis' Supreme Leader Snoke or whoever Max von Sydow is playing. Some cool effects will drop. And there's even the possibility that we see a brief glimpse of the one and only Luke Skywalker. However it goes down, it will be incredible to behold and I'm so very excited. I'll be back on Monday with the full details.
