Well, it has now been reported for a while and confirmed by Disney and ESPN that we are in fact getting a new trailer for The Force Awakens tonight during halftime of the Monday Night Football game.
This got me thinking about what we could possibly see from the trailer that we haven’t seen before. So without further adieu, here is my list.
1. Extended Dialogue
I know we got a little bit of dialogue in teaser 2, and I don’t consider a voice-over to be dialogue. I fully expect there to be dialogue from Han, Leia, Finn, Rey, Kylo Ren, and Phasma. I don’t think Poe or Luke will have dialogue.
2. Exposition and Story
I think another thing we will get is a bit more of the story through the dialogue. I guess this can really be considered 1a because it will be through dialogue that we will get more of an overlay about what all is going on in the galaxy. It will fill in some gaps in our knowledge of this film.
3. New Characters
Of course, by new characters I mean ones we haven’t seen in the 2 teasers. That would probably include Leia, Maz Kanata, Ello Asty, Teedo and others. I think we’ll get in-film looks at characters who have gotten action figures as well.
4. John Williams Score
I think one of the things I’m most excited for is to hear actual new music from John Williams instead of a reworking of past pieces. That’s what we’ve gotten from the past teasers but it’s because there was no new music yet. This will be epic.
5. No Luke Skywalker
Sorry everyone. I really strongly doubt we will see Luke Skywalker in any pre-release materials, trailer included. He’s not in the official poster, and I can’t see them revealing the most popular character in the Star Wars universe in a trailer either. Sorry folks. You’ll have to wait a couple more months for that.
