The first teaser trailer for the sixth installment in the Star Wars Saga called Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been released this Thursday. After 30 years, the movie-makers have finally managed to move the plot further from where we left off in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.

The trailer sets off with old-time familiar settings with the classic Star Wars background music; this is followed by the narrative in the voice of Luke Skywalker. There are sequences which will set you back in nostalgia specially the ending sequence with Harrison Ford back in the movie as Han Solo and Peter Mayhew as his side-pal Chewbacca.
