The Force Awakens with a New Star Wars Trailer and Tells Us Little — Fortunately!

The new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer gives fans a lot to geek out about. We saw Daisy Ridley’s Rey spelunking in an abandoned star destroyer. We saw the beginning of what promises to be an emotional lightsaber battle between John Boyega’s Finn and Adam Driver’s helmetless Kylo Ren. We even saw a robotic hand, probably Luke Skywalker’s, touching R2-D2. We aren’t breaking any new ground by saying that these details are all kind of a big deal.

However, the very best thing about the new trailer is that, even with 2 minutes and 35 seconds worth of new footage, we still have no real idea what the movie is going to be about. It’s comforting to know that we aren’t going to get a trailer with spoilers—and it’s exciting to know that Star Wars fans are all equally clueless about the crazy ride to come. So, let the wild speculations and plot predictions begin!
