Luke Skywalker is the narrator of the second teaser for The Force Awakens

The second teaser of Star Wars Episode VII was released, and while there isn’t much action, there are few moments of nostalgia in there, and a not so mysterious narrator. Will Ben Skywalker be the star of the new trilogy?

While the teaser trailer is almost two minutes long, much of it is just black crossovers, an intro and outro. There are just few exciting scenes.
It opens with the line “The force is strong in my family” right before a scene of the ruined Darth Wader helmet, during which the narrator also says “My father has it” which seems like it’s Luke speaking, but “has it” would suggest that whoever is narrating the teaser has a father that is actually alive, or at least considered alive in some form (remember the ghostly figures at the end of The Return of the Jedi?).

Apparently they keep the mask in a museum back on Coruscant 🙂

But, continuing, right in the next scene, the narrator says “I have it” and we clearly see a hooded person with a  robotic arm touching R2D2.

These two lines along with the video clearly prove that it is Luke Skywalker, and it is probably that he is speaking this to his son, Ben Skywalker because the line ends with “You have that power too“. It is rumored that the role of Ben Skywalker will be played by Domnhall Gleeson, while he is listed on the IMDb page of the movie as one of the cast it does not say yet which character he will be playing.

After few action scenes, mainly with John Boyega and Daisy Ridley (characters Finn and Rey) we get the first look of an (obviously) older Han Solo and not so obviously older Chewbacca.

“Chewie, we’re home!”

If we take into account the narration in this teaser, looks like John Boyega and Daisy Ridley will be “Solo and Chewie” type of characters, a serious part of the plot and main cast, but the true star of the new trilogy will be Ben Skywalker, just like his father was in the original trilogy and his grandfather in the prequel trilogy. it is very likely that we will get more action by him in the first official trailer, which is yet to be released by Lucas Film.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will premiere on Christmas 2015. The new Star Wars movie is directed by J.J. Abrams (who was also behind the Star Trek franchise reboot) and it stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher from the original trilogy and new comers Daisy Ridley, Domnhall Gleeson and John Boyega.

The plot of the new Star Wars episode is set 30 years after the events in The Return of the Jedi.
