New Disney Channel FORCE AWAKENS Promo Focuses on Rey

The fact that Force Awakens is less than a month away is very strange. For the last two years, all fans have been doing is anticipating the movie coming out. How are we going to adjust to the world that is NOT waiting for Force Awakens? (Note: I think we are going to be fine.)

If the waiting is really starting to get to you, have no fear, for the Disney Channel is here to help. In their latest behind-the-scenes promo, they focus on Rey, played by Daisy Ridley. In the above interview, she describes Rey as “a scavenger on the desert planet Jakku, but she’s searching for new experiences, new adventures.” If you replace “scavenger” with “moisture farmer” and “Jakku” with “Tatooine,” you have another character from this franchise. I’m looking forward to seeing how it all relates.

And while it’s a very small (two seconds) glimpse, we also get our first look at Simon Pegg’s character from the film. It’s been known for some time that he would be appearing, but who or what he was playing was still unknown. Okay, it’s STILL unknown, but at least we have a face to match our lack of information?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters and IMAX on December 18th.

So what do you think? Was spending hours trying to get Fandango to load worth the tickets you purchased? Use the Force to let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below.
