It’s finally here! After months of anticipation, the first trailer for Star Wars Episode VII is finally online and can be viewed by clicking here. Watched it yet? Epic stuff, eh? It may be fairly brief and it may not tell us an awful lot about the plot of the movie, but it does reveal a surprising amount of new information!

Looking back at some past rumours (none of the ones containing any major spoilers though, don’t worry) and the leaked concept art we now know to be 100% authentic, we’ve taken an in-depth look at the first trailer for J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars Episode VII and analyse what it may tell us about what to expect from the movie.

Below, you’ll find highlights of all the major points in this preview, along with links to the artwork mentioned above and even a piece which may reveal what the movie’s new villain looks like from the front…

10. Back On Tatooine?

Tatooine

Tatooine played a major role in A New Hope and again in Return of the Jedi. The prequels meanwhile would revisit the planet to reveal Darth Vader’s early years as Anakin Skywalker, and it appears from this first shot that we’ll once again return there next year. We’ve known this for a while actually, but you have to wonder whether or not it’s going to lead to us meeting another Skywalker. Depending on which rumours you choose to believe (if any), this may in fact be a totally new desert planet, but we’re willing to bet that J.J.

Abrams has chosen to revisit this iconic location once again regardless of the younger leads family ties!
