"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" Teaser Trailer Debuts Online

Initially announced only as debuting in a couple dozen movie theaters nationwide on Black Friday, the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" teaser trailer has arrived online, courtesy of iTunes. It's the first look at the 2015 film, the first "Star Wars" movie in a decade -- and 88 seconds that will surely be very closely scrutinized until the next look at the sequel surfaces.

The teaser gives a first good look at new cast members Jon Boyega and Daisy Ridley, as well as a hooded figure brandishing a new take on a lightsaber.
