Avast! Second Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer.

Ignoring the abominations which were Episodes 1,2 and 3 this new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens looks every bit as good as I had imagined.

Yes, it’s early days yet and the film doesn’t go on general release unitl Christmas but it already feels like it belongs alongside the original trilogy and if the final frame of this trailer doesn’t make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, then you are clinically dead my friend.

Star Wars Set Video Unveils X-Wing.

Director J J Abrams is back and once more he’s filmed a video on the set of the forthcoming Star Wars: Ep VII movie.

As some of you may recall he recently announced a contest where you could win a part in the movie and a tour of the set in London, this video is a basic update with an official description which rattles along like so:

In a special video message from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, director J.J. Abrams announces the creation of Star Wars: Force for Change, a brand new Star Wars initiative from Disney and Lucasfilm, in collaboration with Bad Robot, dedicated to finding creative solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems. The first Star Wars: Force for Change campaign will raise funds and awareness for UNICEF’s Innovation Labs and its innovative projects benefitting children in need. 

Yeah enough with the information Abrams, let’s see that bloody X-Wing.
