Who’s ready for some more intel about the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Before we get to the latest and greatest, can I just say how impressed I am at how much coverage Disney and Lucasfilm have squeezed out of an 88 second tease? It’s borderline ridiculous. I’m feeding the problem because I’m eagerly lapping up any and all information and tuning into all the things that mention Episode VII–as are many fans–but I’m curious to see if this trend will continue with every trailer. Anyway, Jacob Bertrand (Kirby Buckets) shared some new tidbits in an “Inside The Force Awakens” special after the Star Wars Rebels marathon today on Disney XD.
Here are the not so big bombshells Bertrand revealed that you may or may not already know:
– The Aurebesh on Poe Dameron’s (Oscar Isaac) vest translates to “pull to inflate.” Fans who know how to read Aurebesh figured that out the weekend the trailer was released and also pointed out that the text is upside down.
– The goggles worn by Rey (Daisy Ridley) once belonged on a stormtrooper helmet. They’ve been scavenged or stolen and modified. Again, this was something many reaction posts to the teaser mentioned a few weeks ago with comparison photos.
– The Force Awakens trailer was released in 47 different languages. Cool to know, I guess?
– The sound at the end of the trailer is Luke Skywalker’s original 1977 lightsaber powering on, which was already announced on Good Morning America.
And because I’ve seen rumors and speculation swirling, this brief “special” did not officially confirm that Tatooine is the desert planet at the beginning of the trailer. There were shots from the trailer with this voice over, “Recognize that ship, remember that planet, and of course, who could forget the X-wing fighters?” That’s far from specific. Is it a hint for Tatooine? Maybe, but it’s not confirmation.
