It seems a creative fan has taken all of the footage we have seen in the teasers, trailers, and TV spots for ‘The Force Awakens’ and cut them all together in potential chronological order, making a 4 minute video that potentially gives you a glimpse at the overall plot of the new film, revealing what scenes take place where and at what point during the film. Sure, there are some shots that seem like they may not have been placed in the right order (the shot of Luke’s hand reaching for R2D2 in the desert looks out of place, though if the rumors are true and it takes place during a flashback, it can be forgiven), but for the most part what appears in this cut looks fairly accurate, and definitely sheds some light on the pacing and tone of the final film.
I personally did not realize how much footage had already been released showing off the battle in the snow that ostensibly occurs at the end of the film, nor how much of the dog fight between the Millenium Falcon and the Tie Fighters on Jakku was already out there. Also, there is a lot more footage of Han Solo out there than I had previously thought, which worries me only in that I’m a big Han Solo fan, and I would not be surprised if they are using him a lot in the trailers because they know he will not be around in the next movie (i.e. they are going to kill him off).
Anyway, check out the re-cut footage below, and then let us know what you think of it all in the comments below!
