"Hope is not lost today, it is found"

Well, this is a surprise. Disney's Japanese YouTube account has uploaded a brand new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, full of new scenes. The star of this one, without question, is BB-8 — we actually get to hear the droid "talk" a bit this time. Additionally we get a brief glimpse at C-3PO (1:03 — look closely and you'll see his new arm), a few more scenes featuring Kylo Ren, and a new emotional quote: "Hope is not lost today, it is found." Most importantly, we're pretty sure that's the Wilhelm scream at around the 1:21 mark when Chewbacca takes down some soldiers.

The last Star Wars trailer debuted less than a month ago, featuring some of the same Han Solo moments as this one. There's no sign of Luke, although we're guessing that'll be a common thread at this point. Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters December 18th.
