The “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” international trailer offered even more footage than the last preview that debuted to fan fever during “Monday Night Football,” and with every new frame comes new speculation.
TheWrap analyzed the new footage and joined the millions of “Star Wars” fans in asking what it could all mean. Here are 5 things we (think) we learned.
Rey Is Waiting for Her Family
In an extended version of Rey’s dialogue heard in the previous trailer, we hear Rey say, “I know all about waiting for my family.” Given the most prominent family in the “Star Wars” universe is the Skywalkers, this could mean Rey is related to Luke, Leia, and possibly Han.
New Order Destroys Rey’s Home
Finn crash lands on Rey’s planet in a TIE fighter and Rey rescues him. But in this trailer, we see TIE fighters flying on the horizon of the same planet, giving further credence to theories that the scenes of the New Order using flame throwers on a settlement takes place where Rey lives.
Rey Gets Captured by Kylo Ren
In one scene in the trailer, Kylo Ren has Rey on her knees and puts his lightsaber to her neck. This seems to indicate that Kylo has captured Rey and is using her as a bargaining chip.
Lupita Nyong’o Speaks

In the extended version of Rey’s dialogue, she is speaking with an unseen female character. The two most prominent women other than Rey in the film are Leia and the yet unseen Maz Kanata, played by Lupita Nyong’o (pictured above in motion capture gear). The voice does not sound like Leia, meaning it could very well be Kanata.
Somebody Dies, and It Might Be Your Favorite Wookie
In one of the final images from the trailer, we see Ray weeping over a body. A closer look seems to reveal fur and what looks like Chewie’s distinctive bandolier. The scene takes place in a snowy forest, possibly the same one in which we’ve previously seen Finn doing battle with Kylo Ren. Did Chewie attempt to help Finn and get himself killed?
