'Star Wars: The Force Awakens': Original Stars WON'T Be Used in Marketing?

The first trailer for J.J. Abrams' hotly-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released over the Thanksgiving weekend, and while the preview was very well-received, some felt that it was missing something. Choosing instead to introduce viewers to the new characters in the classic sci-fi franchise, the preview did not feature any footage of original trilogy stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher, all of whom will be reprising their legendary roles in the new film.

Very recently, we got word that we would all get our first looks at the dynamic trio shortly, as rumors indicated that Luke, Han, and Leia would appear in some capacity in the second Force Awakens trailer, which will debut alongside the theatrical premiere of The Avengers: Age of Ultron in May. However, that may not be the case, as new reports claim that we won't get to see the old characters until the film comes out in December.
