10 Questions Raised by the New Star Wars Trailer

Published: November 28, 2014 at 10:17 AM

The teaser trailer for Star Wars, Episode 7 - The Force Awakens is online now. Here's the link: trailers.apple.com/trailers/lucasfilm/starwarstheforceawakens/.

My favorite shot in the trailer

While the teaser trailer doesn't answer any questions about the newest chapter of the Star Wars saga, it does raise a whole bunch of questions:

Lightsaber from the Star Wars 7 trailer
What the...?

  1. Why is there a black stormtrooper?
  2. I mean, all the stormtroopers were clones of Jango Fett, right?
  3. For that matter, why are there still any stormtroopers?
  4. If there are still stormtroopers, is there still an Empire?
  5. There are rebels in X-wings. Is the rebellion still ongoing?
  6. What is the functional purpose of a lightsaber hilt?
  7. Wouldn't that just increase the risk of slicing off your own hand?
  8. Can J.J. Abrams make a teaser trailer without a lens flare? (Okay, we got the answer to that one: No.)
  9. Has anyone built a new spaceship since Return of the Jedi?
  10. Will we see any of this stuff in Star Wars Land?
