We’re getting more than our fair share of pre-release goodies from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and last night (November 12) LucasFilm rolled out additional footage during ABC’s #TGIT programming.
In addition to fresh hints of the new John Williams score, the clips show Finn’s Tie Fighter springing out of the First Order hangar bay, followed by Han Solo handing Rey a pistol and stating, “You might need this.”
The goodies just keep on coming, as earlier today (November 12) the LucasFilm team released a pair of new videos from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” as well as an IMAX promotional poster for all to enjoy.
In one of the clips, director J.J. Abrams explains the deal with Lupita Nyong'o's character, a former space pirate named Maz Kanata- “I had some specific ideas about how she would work and what she would do. I had this pitch about these goggles that she wore. Her eyes are an important aspect of her character, and you’ll see how it plays out. Her history is that she was a pirate for a long time. She’s lived over a thousand years. She’s had this watering hole for about a century, and it’s like another bar that you’d find in a corner of the Star Wars universe….All that backstory will be forthcoming. In the movie, you don’t learn these things, but I know that these are things that are coming out in other venues.”
Per the synopsis, “In New York City for their annual tradition of Christmas Eve debauchery, three lifelong best friends set out to find the Holy Grail of Christmas parties since their yearly reunion might be coming to an end.”
