It begins with a sweeping shot of desert landscape with a foreboding voiceover: "There's been an awakening. Have you felt it?" and gets even more intriguing thereafter.

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer has finally arrived, all 88 seconds of it. It's short but it's satisfying.

Fans of  the series can see shots of the Millennium Falcon, X-Wing, Tie Fighters and the new lightsaber.

Also, British actor John Boyega appears in a Stormtrooper uniform whilst Daisy Ridley is seen on a bike as a droid speeds across the landscape.

Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a shot of Skellig Michael, the World Heritage Site 12km off Co Kerry where filming controversially took place over the  summer.

JJ Abrams' new film releases next December, ten years after the previous instalment and original stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher will return.
