    Vague, yet effective!

    I gotta say, if they release a trailer like this one, they could essentially do it anytime! Even now!

    I agree they should do it in front of the next big Disney movie which is OZ released March 2013.

    A long time ago in a galaxy far far away . . .

    Old voice overs/clips

    Qui Gon: There's something about this boy.

    Qui Gon: Who was his father?
    Shmi: There was no father.

    Qui Gon: I have encountered a vengeance in the force.
    Mace: You refer to the prophecy of the one who will bring balance to the force, you believe its this boy?
    Qui Gon: It was possible he was conceived by the midichlorians.

    Sidious: He could use the force to influence the midichlorians to create life.

    Obi Wan: Is he not the chosen one? Is he not to destroy the Sith and bring balance to the force?
    Mace: So the prophecy says.

    Yoda: Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny.

    Sidious: Darth Plagueis was a dark lord of the Sith. He had such a knowledge of the dark side he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.

    Obi Wan: Your going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.

    Sidious: He taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep.

    Obi Wan: If you strike me down I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Sidious: To cheat death is a power only one has achieved.

    Vader: You don't know the power of the dark side . . .

    Show quick new shots of C3PO, R2D2, Chewie, Lando, Han, Lea and then Luke.

    New voice over

    Yoda Ghost: Stronger, the dark side grows. Even in the netherworld, its presence is felt. The force, unbalanced it remains. Either a lie, the prophecy was, or the Sith are still alive.

    just a 2 second clip from behind Han and Chewie in the Falcon as it is headed right into some kind of chaos.....that would work for me!

    I don't we'll see anything until 2014.
    It's possible there may be a place holder trailer like above in 2013, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I just want the music to swell, the Lucasfilm logo to twinkle...and then show the Millennium Falcon in flames, spiraling down through a planet's atmosphere. Then, cut - Title. End.

    Appreciate the effort - but way too prequel-ish (Mace, Sidious, etc)

    Maybe a little flashback to Vader's cremation and a close up shows Luke fuelled the fire with a ton of EU books!

    Was good until you said Jedis. ;) Also, that title seems a little too novel-y.

    Wonder if there can be a teaser with Luke narrating, and debuts of Ben Skywalker, Anakin, Jacen & Jaina Solo. Appearances of Leia & Han. Voice overs of Anakin/Vader, Obi-Wan & Yoda & Sideous.

    I'd have the usual starters , Disney logo , Lucas film.
    Fade into our favourite starter shot of panning down to a world we havent seen before , then the sound of the falcon and it pans right over the camera with it going off into the distance with Han solo saying over the footage " chewie make ready the landing gear" , you don't actually see han and chewie.
    Fades away
    Iconic music starts.
    Fades into a brand new shot of Luke holding his lightsaber with a look of anguish
    Fade away
    Fade into a cave set in some iconic mountains , rain and lightning lashing down , slowly the camera enters the cave , all dark , music getting more dramatic , as the camera enters further into the cave , fire wall lights are seen with a figure in the distance in a black robe , back towards us , standing in front of what looks like an alter etc , Camera gets right upto their back and the figure turns to face the camera. The figure looks directly at the camera and just smiles......the emporer.
    Fades away

    Star wars episode 7 blah blah blah....

    Disney logo, Lucasfilms logo
    voice overs and a shadow figure walks up to the camera:
    - Luke: You are much like Obi-Wan... Ben.
    - Ben: I won't let the dark side hurt our family again.
    - Anakin: I am not like my grandfather, and I am NOT my grandfather!
    - Mara Jade: The Force is strong with us all!
    - Dark Jedi: Feel the return of the DARK... SIDE!
    - Luke: Welcome... to the NEW Jedi order!
    Luke shows up from the shadows, removing his hood and wields his lightsaber
    - Sith Lord: Luke Skywalker. How nice to see you again.
    The camera zooms at Luke's eye and showing the title: Star Wars Episode VI: The New Jedi Alliance
