Star Wars: Episode VII trailer gets first look on iTunes

Disney has taken to iTunes to show off the first proper look at Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens - sorry YouTube.

The fast-approaching J.J. Abrams spectacular is now live and available to watch on Apple’s iTunes Movie Trailers page exclusively.

It’s very likely Apple went to great pains to snag the deal, and the iTunes traffic is assuredly going through the roof right about now.

Following the early iTunes debut, the trailer will also be shown in 30 cinemas across the USA.

The Star Wars movie franchise kicked off back in 1977, with the prequel series landing in 1999.

The Force Awakens will be the seventh movie in the series, and is scheduled for release on December 18 2015.

It’s been written by George Lucas, but sees J.J. Abrams planted firmly in the director’s chair. Abrams’ previous works include the two latest Star Trek films, Mission Impossible 3, Super 8, and Cloverfield.

The movie will star John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, and Andy Serkis, with reprisals coming courtesy of Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, amongst others.

If you’re keen to see what’s in store for the Star Wars universe after Return of the Jedi, you can take a look at the new trailer right here.

It's been on Youtube for exactly the same amount of time.

And that means you don't have to use iTunes, which, you know. Bonus.


"with reprisals coming courtesy of Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill"

Er. Ok. Not sure casting them in his movie deserves an act of revenge, I hope JJ survives.

Edit II:

It's not written by Lucas. At all. There was a huge thing about Disney buying.. oh what's the point. Did you get PAID for writing this?

This laser sword with the short perpendicular bit/guard or whatever it is looks quite lame, doesn't it?

No, not really.

My apologies please if I'm mistaken Sean, but the credited writers for Ep. VII are Lawrence Kasdan & J.J. Abrams, not George Lucas.

Your not mistaken and after eps 1-3 I think that's a good thing ha ha. He will always get a writers credit for characters though

I don't know the extended StarWars universe beyond the films, Homer. I just thought it looked epic. Much like the trailer as a whole. :-) A Sith what now?

I literally knew none of this stuff. Very interesting though. Still finding 'Wookieepedia' funny, I'm easily amused. :-) Thanks for the explanation, Homer.
