I also is the Star Wars GIF he first footage from Episode VII The Force Awaken?
The GIF was originally spotted and uploaded at Making Star Wars. There are no details on where it came from, or how they got it. All they are implying is that this could be a cut from the much whispered-about Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer that has been rumored to premiere sometime before the end of the year. In fact Slashfilm is now reporting from “good sources” (Mr J.J. Abrams) that the teaser trailer will be shown in a limited number of theaters during the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend, although it will only be shown in America… WHAAAAAAT!
But until then, we must speculate. The appearance of this GIF on-line coincides with the rumour (from Badass Digest) that the first Star Wars: Episode 7 teaser trailer would end with the Millennium Falcon “firing blasters, coming right at the camera.” And that is exactly what this GIF is. Then again, a GIF like this would be very easy to fake. The lens flare feels almost too obvious and the CG looks a little “meh,” so I’m leaning towards no, but it would be cool if it was the real deal. Then again, again, as Making Star Wars points out, the creators of this mysterious footage did get the radar replacement dish right, so these people know their stuff.
