9 things the new Japanese Star Wars trailer reveals

There's been a great disturbance in the Force. As if millions of Twitter voices suddenly cried out in terror... because they hadn't expected Disney Japan to drop a new The Force Awakens trailer on them.

Swooping from the shadows like an enraged Sith lord, the latest sneak peek at J J Abrams' Star Wars effort runs along a similar arch to the recent Western trailer: there's an unknown female voice offering someone sage wisdom, the same horse remarks of Kylo Ren and a fair amount of general menace.

There are some significant differences though, with the Japanese marketing team dipping into previously unseen sequences.
