What The Force Awakens does right

I don’t know if there’s ever been a movie with higher expectations than Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Okay, maybe The Phantom Menace, but that’s the black sheep of the family we don’t talk about. The pressure to get things right must have been extreme. I’m pretty surprised director JJ Abrams even survived the ordeal.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Final Trailer

After months of anticipation, Lucasfilm and Disney finally released the full trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. After hints at the plot in two teaser trailers, this final trailer finally reveals… more hints at the plot. I’m very impressed with how, in typical JJ Abrams style, the trailer retains the mystery surrounding the film. It shows a few character moments and a lot of action, but really nothing about the plot.
