New Star Wars footage shows old friends, and perhaps a new one

There are many new scenes mixed in with the familiar footage

Disney continues to release small snippets of new footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens in trailers and promos, and we have some neat stuff for you today.

Here's a new International trailer, for starters:

That Sullustan pilot you see for a brief moment? He's played by Mike Quinn, the original Nien Nunb from Return of the Jedi.

This short clip from the Disney Channel shows a brief glimpse of Lupita Nyong’o’s Maz Kanata at the 15 second mark. Kanata's voice has played a major role in many of the trailers and promos, but this is one of the few times we've actually seen her in a trailer.

Another feature from the Comic Con Experience in Brazil shows off some of the film's massive sets and props, along with the reactions of the actors.

That feature also shows one of the funniest shots of someone standing next to Harrison Ford you're going to see today. The thirst is real.


Lastly we have a new feature focusing on Rey herself, with a few more hints about her character and how she fits into the story, including a telling exchange between Rey and BB-8.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released on Dec. 18.
