The trailers for “Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens” that have been released in the United States have offered a few clues about the upcoming movie.

A trailer released in Japan offers a few more insights into the film.

One of the most surprising things is hearing the voice new droid, BB-8, makes. It isn’t quit the robotic tines that were being expected.

The trailer also offers an interesting new look at Chewbacca, a scene that shows the scope of the film and includes the original theme music. There’s also an appearance by Imperial Tie fighters that opens up a lot of talk about the Empire.

In case you weren’t recently in Japan, here’s the trailer.
