Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Teaser Confirms Quite a Bit

This confirms that some of what we’ve heard is true, like John Boyega playing a Stormtrooper – and considering that the Stormtrooper designs we saw earlier have now turned out to be real, it makes a lot of the other stuff from the same sources more likely too.

One holdover from Rebels is a newfound love of having every major spaceship operate and give chase within the atmosphere. For whatever reason, I’m not super-crazy about that, but eh, why not.

Those Sith-saber mini hilt bits look like more trouble than they’re worth if you think about. And man, that narrator does sound like Benedict Cumberbatch even though I’m pretty sure it’s not.

It’s more than I thought we’d see, that’s for sure. Was expecting just headshots and fade-outs. This gives us enough that they can show us an action figure or two a little early.
