A new trailer for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' has been released.

The second teaser for the next instalment of the popular sci-fi flick - which is due to be released in December - was unveiled at the Star Wars Celebration in Anheim, California today. And the moment which is sure to excite the movie's fans the most is the appearance of Harrison Ford's Han Solo alongside his sidekick Chewbacca.

The trailer begins with a car speeding through a desolate landscape past the crashed spaceship.

A mysterious voiceover, thought to be Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker, announces: "The force is strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. My sister has it. You have that power too."

Fans are also treated to a glimpse of the mask belonging to one of the movie franchise's most-famous characters, Darth Vader, and a look at the latest villain Kylo Ren.

The trailer ends with Harrison as Han Solo, announcing to Chewbacca as he steps into the Millennium Falcon: "Chewie, we're home."

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', which is directed by J.J. Abrams, is expected to be released on December 18.
