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. After the awe of that initial viewing, many of us went back over the trailer frame-by-frame, analyzing each shot over and over and speculating on their potential meaning to the plot of the film.

That night on Twitter, Bethany Blanton, Co-Founder of The Star Wars Report, posted a still from the trailer featuring our heroes approaching a large stone building adorned with multiple banners. Above the entrance of this building was a design that Bethany thought resembled a Stormtrooper helmet. I tweeted back that I thought it looked like the mask of Darth Vader. 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.

Star Wars Authors’ Version of The Force Awakens

The “How I Would Have Written The Force Awakens Author Panel” at Dragon Con 2015 was, as the title suggests, about how several Star Wars authors – namely Timothy Zahn, Michael Stackpole, Rebecca Moesta, and Kevin J. Anderson (with Paula Rosenberg moderating) – would have written Star Wars: The Force Awakens. To be clear, this wasn’t official in any way; it was simply a group of very experienced writers examining what they would have written, in an off-the-cuff (and sometimes intentionally silly and ridiculously funny) manner.

I was lucky enough to attend the panel and it was, in my opinion, absolutely hilarious! My favorite aspect of this panel was how much fun the authors had with the discussion, how engaged they were, and how they weren’t afraid to be both outlandish and serious at times. It was actually difficult to keep up with their banter sometimes, especially when I was laughing too much to type accurately. (P.S. One of the reasons I love the Star Wars track at Dragon Con is because of how nice the authors are there, and how open and available they are with fans.) Here is the panel, recapped and somewhat abridged.
The authors began with describing how they would open the film.
