The First Trailer For Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

Still holding your breath to the point it feels like an icy Vader stranglehold? Well you can exhale now, as the first footage of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens is finally here.
37 years after we first learnt about womp rat hunting, the franchise strikes back, bringing us a new bunch of heroes alongside the familiar faces who saved the galaxy so memorably the last time. Rising stars include John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver and Domhnall Gleeson, joining established names such as Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis and Max von Sydow are new additions to the Star Wars universe.
Guarding plot-lines as keenly as the blueprints to the Death Star, prankster-in-chief J.J. Abrams  has been teasing us for the best part of a year now, giving us a glimpse of an X-Wing here, the odd look at an unidentifiable creature there, and other sneak peaks of the set in his aim to whip up interest. No danger there...
We've been left to sate our appetite with enough fake fan-made trailers to make us want to dismantle our Facebook feed with a lightsaber, just adding to the hype machine around the latest chapter in the sci-fi saga. 
Happily, however, it looks to be right on the money. Jar Jar Binks doesn't appear once, basically.
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens opens in cinemas from 18 December 2015
