Star Wars: Why The Force Awakens Trailer Narration Sounds So Familiar

The new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer hit last week and promptly blew everyone’s minds with a mix of nostalgia and sheer awesomeness. We saw some new faces, some old ones, and also heard a familiar voice in Luke Skywalker in what sounds like his dialogue to Leia on Endor in Return of the Jedi:

“The Force is strong in my family. My Father has it. I have it. My sister has it. You have that power too.”

ROTJ Luke

Was it from Return of the Jedi or The Force Awakens?

Many thought it was a reedited version of Luke’s dialogue from Return of the Jedi, though it was possible Mark Hamill recorded new dialogue, either for the film or the trailer itself. As it turns out, both theories are true.

As it turns out, yes, the trailer took the dialogue from Return of the Jedi. However, Hamill also re-recorded the old lines for the trailer a week before its debut, his latest voice over acting as reverb if you listen closely.
