If you’re trying to save some of the majestic spectacle that is “Star Wars The Force Awakens” for the big screen, flee now because this TV spot shows off a pretty major plot point though it does nothing to explain it.


Okay. Here we go. Remember a few weeks ago when JJ Abrams talked about the Starkiller Base? Fans began to theorize perhaps the name wasn’t just an homage to Luke Skywalker’s original last name. After all, what is scarier than a Death Star that can destroy a planet? One that can destroy a star.

Now the latest TV Spot for “The Force Awakens” features a fiery explosion in the sky. One we’ve previously seen the Millennium Falcon careening through the forest to escape. I’m not saying it’s the weapon on Starkiller Base…I’m just saying it probably it.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” arrives in theaters on December 18.
