Star Wars Drops Second, Painfully Short Trailer


Star Wars the Force Awakens

Disney and Lucasfilm made like Beyoncé today and surprise-dropped the second Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer on Instragam. Yea, Instagram, which means it’s only 15 seconds long.

While it’s short on any plot details (and most everything else), it does include some footage we’ve never seen: an intimidating army of Stormtroopers, a light-saber fight between Finn (John Boyega) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), and a cute little R2D2-like robot.

The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams, hits theaters on December 18th. Catch the full-length trailer, along with three quick observations about the film from our resident Star Wars fanatic Joel Mathis, here.
