We’re finally launching back into a galaxy far, far away with this new trailer from the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.

There’s currently a celebration panel about the film underway in Anaheim, CA, where the trailer debuted.

A few details were even released (from which the live panel can be watched here):

Otherwise, the cast of J.J. Abrams‘s film has remained tight-lipped when it comes to their character roles.

Harrison Ford is back as Han Solo while Carrie Fisher reprises her role as Princess Leia, Mark Hamill is back playing Luke Skywalker, John Boyega will play Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, and Daisy Ridley as Rey.

Other new cast members include Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, and Andy Serkis.

Have fun waiting eight months until the film is released in theaters!  The film’s expected release date is December 18, 2015.
