Exposing the Hidden Clues in The Force Awakens Trailer

NOTE: Possible spoilers for a segment of The Force Awakens based on speculation and deduction from the trailers and other official sources.


When Star Wars fans around the world gathered to view the final trailer for The Force Awakens, we, in grand tradition, soaked in each frame, trying to discern as much as we could about the highly anticipated film.

In all likelihood, it is probably neither, but wild imaginations are part of the fun of fandom.


However, there was something else familiar about this design that puzzled me. At first I thought it might be an existing symbol within the Star Wars universe. Several of us had already spotted what turned out to be two logos associated with the Mandalorians and Boba Fett among the designs on the numerous flags.


After some minutes searching in vain online, it finally hit me. I had seen that same design in a previous The Force Awakens picture. That picture was in the Force Awakens issue of Vanity Fair and featured the menacing Captain Phasma standing among the charred ruins of a stone structure. The caption read: “First Order officer Captain Phasma… surveys the rubble following an attack.” I then realized that it was the same building.

Han Solo Anthology Film Announced!

Starwars.com just dropped that Christopher Miller and Phil Lord have the bridge on a new Han Solo Anthology film.  The dynamic duo of Miller and Lord have worked on films like Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs. The screenplay will be written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan.  The movie will provide Han Solo’ backstory as to how he became a smuggler.  This topic provides a lot of different angles to take, and should provide the filmmakers with the position to put out a quality film.
