We’re less than 30 days away from the release of The Force Awakens and it’s getting harder and harder to keep away from anymore Star Wars footage. Maybe it’s time to stop ignoring it and finally embrace it. With that in mind, have you seen the newest Star Wars television spot featuring Finn (John Boyega)? It was only a few weeks ago that Abrams said we wouldn’t be getting any new trailers for The Force Awakens. However, that hasn’t stopped them from releasing new footage via television ads. At this rate, the whole movie is going to be spoiled. Oh well. We might as well talk about the new footage anyways.
So before we get into things, check out the TV spot below in case you haven’t seen it yet.
Alright, now that you’ve seen it for the first time or seen it again, what did you think? For a TV spot, this thing gives a lot of information away. First of all, let’s talk about Finn’s line, “You don’t know a thing about me.” Who’s he talking to? The background is too blurry to see whats going on. Whoever it is, it seems that there’s a lot more to Finn than what’s being led on. We see him wielding a light saber, so we know he’s in tune with the Force. We don’t know to what degree, though.
Did you also catch that image of him in the gunner seat of the Millennium Falcon? Did that remind you of anyone? Does this mean that Finn is like the second coming of Luke Skywalker?
The funny thing is, we’re so afraid of being spoiled something great, that these TV spots bring up more questions than anything. On a final note, did you see that Stormtrooper with the big stick? That thing was ridiculous.
Ugh, is it December yet?
Star Wars The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18th.
