New Star Wars: The Force Awakens footage airs on Korean TV

A short time ago, in a country far, far away ….

New footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens!  The 30-second teaser trailer was aired during a Korean TV spot and was posted to YouTube by Star Wars Korea on Sunday.

The new footage showcases never-before-seen Episode VII action, including images of the dark-siders known as “The First Order” which — rumor has it — will be lead by Andy Serkis’ Supreme Leader Snoke.  The opening shot is of an unknown figure standing in front of a humongous horde of stormtroopers, and some are already speculating that Snoke is the one addressing the army — this has yet to be confirmed. 

“There has been an awakening” we hear a mysterious voice say as the video begins, “have you felt it?”  

These lines could just as easily refer to fans’ long-dormant nostalgia, first awoken by the official trailer, which was released back in April.

This latest clip should be just enough to whet the appetites of those eagerly awaiting the franchise’s seventh installment, but the new stuff is very brief. Still, that alone is enough to cause a nationwide worldwide geek out.

At this point, everyone is wondering pretty much the same things as they were before, but there is the added intrigue of who the disembodied voice is in the background of the trailer.

It’s not a lot to chew on, but hey, when it comes to the Star Wars universe, all news is big news.
