The aged Han Solo and Chewbacca show up for the first time in a new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer that has just been released.
The second Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer has been released. This new trailer follows the first teaser that was released toward the end of last year. The new teaser trailer for the first time shows a scene with aged Han Solo (Harrison Ford, 72) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew, 70). Chewbacca did not age at all. Han Solo got gray hair. It has been 38 years since the release of the original Star Wars movie in 1977.

Harrison Ford is still able to pull off the daring Han Solo. The trailer shows several other characters and some action scenes. It also seems to confirm that the Star Wars: The Force Awakens plot is around the original lightsaber of Luke Skywalker. Badass Digest has revealed that bit of the secret plot last summer.
The new Star Wars teaser has gone viral with over 13.6 million views within the first 12 hours of release on Youtube. It is safe to say that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be one of the biggest movies of 2015.
