The folks at Disney and Lucasfilm offered another Thanksgiving treat: another new teaser for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

The new TV spot is stuffed with action scenes, from aerial battles to lightsaber fighting to Harrison Ford‘s Han solo emerging from what looks like a downed spacecraft, with Chewbacca following, and firing a laser gun on an unseen foe.

J.J. Abrams‘ movie, set about 30 years after the events of 1983’s “Return of the Jedi,” has been setting records in ticket presales in advance of its December 18 opening.

Analysts are projecting that the movie could challenge the $208.4 million opening-weekend box office record set by “Jurassic World” in June.
In addition to Ford, the seventh installment in the sci-fi franchise stars Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Max von Sydow, as well as franchise alums Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.
