If you’re like us, then opening up and playing with Star Wars gifts on Christmas (or whatever religious holiday you observe) was the highlight of your last week of the year. The latest ad from Duracell dramatizes that scenario by featuring a brother-and-sister duo take on the First Order in the time period of The Force Awakens.
There are also a few little things of note in the video. One is that all the “Imperial” technology shown is from The Force Awakens – except, oddly enough, for the AT-ATs, which look to be based on the models seen in The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi rather than the new movie. (Eagle-eyed viewers have noticed that there are new walkers in the Instagram teaser.) Another is that both of the lightsabers shown in the the advertisement belonged to Luke Skywalker at some point. It’s a bit of a stretch, but I think that this ad is implying that, in addition to seeing the blue lightsaber get “passed on” to the new protagonists of the Sequel Trilogy, we might yet see the green lightsaber in some capacity. Finally, the sister is wearing a Rey outfit (which, given her use of the Force, could be a subtle hint that Rey is or was a Jedi), while the brother is wearing standard Jedi robes – which appear to be based on the figure (probably Luke) in contact with R2-D2 in the trailer. Admittedly, I might be looking a little too much into this, but in any case, the attention to detail they put into bringing this stuff to life is a joy to behold.
