We're 395 days from seeing Episode VII. 395 days.

Since the cast and name was announced, however, the rumour mill has fallen silent. We know principal photography has been completed and we know that we're agonisingly close to seeing a trailer.

Insider sources are putting it at some time in the next 3 to 5 weeks, most likely attached to Disney's upcoming musical Into The Woods.

Some are even speculating sooner, saying that it's attached to Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. I.

Regardless, the trailer is out there - John Williams even recorded a new piece of music especially for the trailer.

According to Badass Digest, their man has seen the trailer. According to him, the trailer is short - very short. One minute long, in fact.

It shows the various actors - we're guessing Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and the newer members, Domhnall Gleeson, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley - flashing on the screen before fading to black whilst the Force Theme plays in windpipes.

It cuts to black, followed by a woman - presumably Daisy Ridley - saying two words. "Wake up."

It then smash-cuts to the Millenium Falcon (SQUEE!) flying straight at the camera with blasters firing.

That's not a million miles away from JJ Abrams' teaser for the first Star Trek. It simply showed the Enterprise under construction with Leonard Nimoy reciting the opening monologue.

Abrams is a master at building hype and tension in his films, and the stakes have never been higher with Star Wars.

We all know how bitterly disappointing the prequel trilogy was. We don't want a repeat.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens blasts into cinemas on December 18th, 2015.
