9-minute Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer uses ALL the clips

The longest trailer you’re going to see before Star Wars: The Force Awakens premieres is going to be a full 9-minutes long. In this trailer – which is more of a mini-movie than a trailer when it comes down to it – takes every single piece of Star Wars: The Force Awakens footage available to the public today and crams it in to a single supercut video for fans of all ages. What you’re going to see here may ruin the movie for you. We must put up the “SPOILER ALERT” sign here just in case you’ve not already seen the lot.

Once again, SPOILER ALERT, but know that what you’re about to see does not contain any piece of media that hadn’t already been released to the public by Disney and Lucasfilm. It contains pieces of Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailers, teasers, and miniature video specials. It has a video captured from Google’s cardboard adventure. You’ll see clips from every single piece of video released in support of the movie thus far.

That includes behind-the-scenes footage. Don’t be surprised when you see a camera following along with a character or our hero Rey flying the skeletal bits of the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit. All manner of video is used.

All of the speaking parts, on the other hand, come from The Force Awakens trailers. No odd bits have been added.

Music is from The Force Awakens trailers as well as a medley composed by John Williams for Return of the Jedi. So it’s all Star Wars music.

The ONE place we deviate a TINY bit is in a couple of the sound effects, but even there we’ve opted for sound effects sourced from Star Wars movies, TV shows, and video games.

Before you watch this video, remember – you MAY be spoiled by it.

As we mentioned in our original earlier cut, credit goes to the Making Star Wars crew for assistance on the timeline. Also much praise for the sound isolation works of Darth Smoke.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be out in theaters around the world starting this week on Friday, December 18th, 2015. See more of SlashGear’s Star Wars works and news bits in our Star Wars tag portal.
