The trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens dropped yesterday evening following several teasers and unveiling of the official poster.

The two-minute 35-second montage is our first look at Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia, who is embraced by Harrison Ford's Han Solo as Resistance pilots head off to fight.

There are dogfights between X-Wings and TIE Fighters, along with visuals of the Millennium Falcon jumping to light speed.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in UK cinemas on 17 December and US cinemas on 18 December.
