Watch: The Second Teaser Trailer For 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

All is not well in a galaxy far, far away

Up until today we've had 88 seconds of Force Awakens goodness during which we learned...well, not all that much. Thank Obi Wan, Yoda and the rest of those Star Wars ghosts then, that the second teaser trailer for the seventh film in the sci-fi franchise has landed.

In-between shots of stormtroopers and the Millenium Falcon in action we get Mark Hamill talking about his family's relationship with the force and a shot of Darth Vader's mangled mask from Return Of The Jedi

More action follows, including Oscar Issac's Poe Dameron (described by Isaac as 'The best freakin' pilot in the galaxy') in the cockpit, John Boyea's stormtrooper on the run and Keira-Knightley-double/almost-definitely-Leia's-daughter Daisy Ridley as a scrap-metal horder/loner getting caught up in the excitement.

Plus, lightsabers, a Darth Vader-esque stormtrooper in black and a glimpse at villain Kylo Ren (quite possibly played by Adam Driver).

Best of all though, was the final shot of a grizzled Han Solo declaring to Chewie 'We're home'.

They are indeed. 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is released 18 December.

 

Film of the year?
