Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (Japanese Trailer, ABC TGIT Trailer, and 30 Second TV Spot)

Join Scott and Star Wars expert Paul as they breakdown every little detail of not one, not two, but THREE new trailers for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens! (We know, we know, we thought we were done with these too!) Three trailers that offered many new interesting clues, and raised new questions as well. First, they discuss the trailer aired that during ABC's Thursday Night "TGIT" block, (including some ridiculous testimonials by the casts of various ABC dramas.) They'll talk about Finn and Rey's introduction to one another, additional clues to Finn's origin as an escaped stormtrooper, and a new scene of the resistance base. Next, they'll discuss the Japanese trailer, including what new intriguing clues can be gathered by translating the Japanese subtitles. Especially one potentially huge line not heard in English. And finally, they breakdown the new 30 second TV spot, and how its very short scenes can still tell us quite a lot about the characters and their locations during the movie. Then, combining all of these new clues, they'll discuss Maz Kanata's role in the Star Wars saga, what her cryptic lines of dialogue mean, if Finn is the new successor to Anakin and Luke, and much, much more! (Oh, they talk about the new posters too!) Does Rey live in an old AT-AT? Do podracers' flags from The Phantom Menace make an appearance? Is our favorite fishy admiral back? They talk about it! May the sequels be with you!

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (3rd Trailer)

Join Scott and Star Wars expert Paul as they breakdown every little detail of the third trailer for the most anticipated film of the year: Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens! Listen as they speculate on the motivations of Kylo Ren, what the Starkiller Base actually is, the origin story of Finn, and the mystery that is the absence of Luke Skywalker. They'll also address the questions: Who are the Knights of Ren? Why are stormtroopers burning homes? How did BB-8 land on Jakku? Do Finn and Poe Dameron dislike each other? Does Chewbacca die? And many more! They'll also discuss appearances by Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), Rey's (Daisy Ridley) life on Jakku, and the amazing work by J.J. Abrams. Then, using the other two trailers and official poster, they'll try to put together the pieces of the puzzle and guess the framework of the story. So much to discuss, so little time left! May the sequels be with you!
