A reunion for the ages! Han Solo and Chewbacca are back at it in the talked-about new teaser for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
The latest look at the highly anticipated new movie made its debut at the Star Wars Celebration event in Anaheim, Calif. on Thursday, April 16. With director J.J. Abrams in attendance, as well as stars from the movie including Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, and John Boyega, the conference, which was founded in 1999, teased details about the upcoming installment.
Set for release 38 years after the original Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope hit theaters in 1977, Episode VII will feature Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), and the classic team of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew).
Fisher, Hamill, and Mayhew stopped by the fan event with Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), but Ford, who was recently injured in a flying accident, was noticeably absent from the lineup.
Despite his lack of attendance, Ford was still the talk of the event once the teaser made its debut. Han Solo doesn’t enter the preview until one of the final frames, but when he does he makes a big impact. After footage of the sand dunes, shots of R2-D2, lightsaber battles, and what remains of Darth Vader, Han Solo is shown in a ship with Chewbacca, telling his sidekick, “Chewie, we’re home.”
Watch the new teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens above and catch the movie in theaters on Dec. 18!
