Top 6 Moments From the Star Wars Episode VII Trailers

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is mere weeks away. It looks set to be the one of the biggest and most successful films of all time. It has already made big money in pre-box-office sales and has most of the people around the world clawing at their screens for more.

Very little has actually been shown of the trailers, something we are not used to in this day, as movies seem to be spoiled in the very first trailer. But this is Star Wars and we are as excited as ever. The prequels seem like a distant memory, lost under all the excitement for The Force Awakens.

It’s going to be a struggle to narrow it down, but here we take a look at six of the best moments from the trailers so far.

6. BB-8


This new droid seems to have caught the heart of many around the world. There are already tons of merchandise out there that feature this cute little droid. Seeing the little BB-8 roll across a desert land field was enough to win the little droid a new legion of fans.

Don’t let it’s small structure fool you though, as it looks to be flying in an X-Wing as seen in trailer 3. We are excited to see more from this little droid.

5. Kylo Ren in Action


Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) looks to be the new big evil for The Force Awakens. Little is known about the villain except he has a new kickass looking 3 wielded lightsaber and he’s very much following in the vein of previous villain Darth Vader. Kylo Ren is an ally to The First Order, the new group of villains set to take battle in the new series of films.

The best Kylo Ren moment though, is not an action scene at all. It’s a scene from trailer 3 that shows the antagonist using the force to tamper with Poe Dameron. What could he be doing in this scene? Is he brainwashing the character? Or torturing him perhaps?

4. Introducing Our New Heroes


Again, little is known about our heroes. So far, we know their names are Rey (Daisy Ridley), a young female character who looks to be at the heart of the film. Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), an X-Wing pilot and Finn (John Boyega), who is a former Stormtrooper who goes rogue. We follow Finn on the path to redemption as he joins the likes of Poe and Rey as they set out to battle The First Order.  During his journey, he comes across Anakin’s and Luke’s old lightsaber.

My favourite moment from the trailers? It’s when a young Finn, along with Anakin’s lightsaber is approached by Kylo Ren as they look set to battle. Is Fin up to the task? How will he fare against the menacing villain?
