Well I think this wins award for the most tenuous headline for today, but Badass Digest claim they have been given a scoop on the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and have posted a description of it, which you can read below.
Now, of course, this is just a rumour and may or may not be real. Bear that in mind.
If my sources are correct (and this is a big IF. These sources have been mighty reliable in the past, and if they’re wrong I believe they’re wrong honestly, ie they’re not bullshitting me), it’ll be short. And when I say short, I mean one minute long. It’s going to have The Force Theme played on woodwinds, softly, over flashing images of the main leads, each fading to black. There’s no dialogue, just reveals of the characters. And then the music swells up into a full orchestral piece – perhaps what John Williams recorded this weekend? – and we hear a female voice, likely Daisy Ridley’s, saying “Wake up.”
Good work on protecting your back there chaps – these sources may be telling him the truth or lying to him! It’s vague enough to go either way at this point…
