Looks like we'll have to go back and scrub our post from October 19, which was billed as the final Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer, as Walt Disney Studios Japan has just dropped a new one on their YouTube page. While much of the footage from the Japanese trailer shown below covers a lot of the same scenes and story as the English release, there is some new wild footage, including the opening scene with Rey talking about how she's been waiting for "her family" before revealing Kylo Ren storming Rey's village with an army of Stormtroopers. Kylo Ren definitely takes a starring role in this trailer, which looks to be similar to how the rest of the film will go with Ren hunting down Rey, leading to the last scene in the trailer where Ren's lightsaber is held menacingly next to Rey's neck. Star Wars: The Force Awakens will open in theaters on December 18.
