The third and final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is here. Now, before you watch, take a deep breath, make sure everything is quiet, and get ready, because it’s fantastic.


We finally get to learn a bit about Rey (Daisy Ridley). She’s hiding from something, and talking to Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong’o). Finn (John Boyega) is also confused about his place in the galaxy and, together, they’re both confused about the old ways. The stories. Sith, Jedi, oh man. Han Solo (Harrison Ford) tells them they’re real and we get some amazing action with Kylo Ren, Poe Dameron, a shot of Leia. There’s so, so much great stuff here.

Even some J.J. Abrams lens flares.


We’ll have more soon but, you can read our break downs of last year’s first teaser, and this spring’s second trailer at those links. Then, check back in the morning for our shot by shot break down of this insanity.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens December 18 and, as of this moment, tickets are on sale.
