In the meantime, the filmmakers decided to brighten up the expectations of the fans, not only pre-sale (Russian audience this option is not yet available), but also the new official trailer.

They are trying to learn more about what awaits them in the new picture, and he struggled (or forces, if you will) is trying to hide the truth from them. While Abrams wins.
Of course, he could not keep secret the cast – so we learned the names of the young actors John Boyega, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac. They learned that the seventh episode will return to the “old guard” – Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker (Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2D2, respectively).

In this case, Abrams, actors and producers willing to come to different “ends are” and interacted with fans, talked about how it was interesting to work on “The Awakening forces” and what it will be a great episode – in the spirit of good old trilogy . But all knowledge of the plot based on a pair of small teasers (they came out in November 2014 and in April 2015 the first) and a three-minute clip from the set (it was shown in the summer). This is not counting the leaks “scenarios” of varying degrees of reliability.

On time of this writing it looked more than 25 million times, the audience noted the appearance of Carrie Fisher and lack Hamill (it, by the way, is not on the poster). But it was a lot of John Boyega – and the presence in distant galaxy black actor finally noticed racists, who called for a boycott “Awakening Forces.” As far as the appeal was effective, it can be measured by ticket sales. Well, the story – the story we learn in December. Barely two months.
