Disney and J.J. Abrams debuted the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer this weekend online and in movie theaters.
With the 40 million views the trailer received comes with it a lot of questions and speculation.
Now some of those questions are laid to rest as ABC’s Good Morning America ran a report revealing answers.
First, the voice in the trailer is revealed to be motion-capture expert Andy Serkis, who also has a role in the film. It’s definitely not Benedict Cumberbatch, as the actor recently stated he is not in the movie.
Another interesting revelation is that the lightsaber sound effect at the end of the trailer is Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber sound from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.
Speaking of Luke Skywalker, the report featured footage of an event held in Texas, where one fans mentions it seems as if the mysterious individual wielding the new lightsaber has two different hands, leading to speculation it a may be Luke.
Check out the report for yourself:
