Star Wars The Force Awakens teaser trailer 3: Rey, Finn, blue lightsaber included

The moon would require the equivalent of 30 trillion megatons of TNT to destroy - 600 billion nuclear warheads or more. Luckily, "clandestine government testing on the lunar surface" has this covered.

Here Lexus demonstrates "the desire to create enjoyment out of motion." We'll take two please in neon pink, thank you.
