Fake Episode VII Trailer Description Goes Viral


The Force Awakens

This morning Star Wars fans woke up to something they’ve been waiting for. Latino Review and Star Wars 7 News both posted a lengthy description of what they claimed was the next Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer that’s rumored to show up at Star Wars Celebration next month.

Featuring new characters, dialog, a lightsaber, and the original cast members, the description gave thirsty fans exactly what they wanted to hear in a new Star Wars trailer. The Luke description definitely had people getting excited.

Unfortunately it was all fake, but not before it spread to serious film blogs such as Slashfilm, Collider, and the SyFy Channel’s Blastr:

Newest trailer report is fake. Confirmed with my sources as a fraudulent exercise in spoiler reading.

Hearing that that Force Awakens trailer description floating around isn't real. Sounded pretty good though.

Word is the new trailer (which will show up at Celebration) is finished. Hopefully we’ll get a real description of it sooner rather than later, as something tells me today is just the first in a long line of fakes.
