If the Force feels strong with this week, that's because the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be arriving in select theaters this Friday (here's a list of theaters screening it), giving us an appetizing look at the first big-screen Star Wars sequel in 30 years.

Watch Star Wars: Rebels for Free Until December 7

If you haven't had a chance to watch Disney's new animated Star Wars show, you're seriously missing out. Featuring glorious shades of the original trilogy mixed with a nerdy expansion of the Star Wars mythology, Disney's first legit Star Wars show is pretty great. It looks like the Star Wars you remember and it feels like the Star Wars you remember. Now, for a limited time (until December 7), the Diz has made the show's first five episodes available for free online via the official Star Wars website

Check out a couple of our picks below, then hit up the site to watch the rest. [via Slashfilm]

Here's the Original Trailer for Star Wars: A New Hope

Before we get our first glimpse of what Star Wars looks like in 2014, here's what the very first trailer for the very first Star Wars looked like when it initially arrived on the scene back in 1977. Note there's no John Williams score. It's amazing how much that adds to the weight of the entire franchise.


The Empire Strikes Back... if It Came Out in 2014

Here's a very cool fan-made trailer for Empire Strikes Back that recuts it so that it looks like the sort of movie trailer we're used to seeing these days, featuring all the bells and whistles we've come to expect from a preview.

Watch a Two-Part Star Wars Documentary Comprised of Only the Deleted Scenes

You've seen plenty of behind-the-scenes Star Wars docs, but this one is a bit different.

See alternate takes, characters who never made it into the final movies and lots more. [via The Playlist]
