The plot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been shrouded in secrecy from the beginning but, it turns out, some of that secrecy may be limited to just American audiences.

A new trailer for the upcoming Star Wars reboot released in China on Wednesday reveals several new details about the plot that Americans have not yet been privy to.

For example, we learn that both Rey (played by Daisy Ridley) and new robot BB-8 are on “classified” missions, we get to hear Han Solo (played by Harrison Ford) repeat one of his classic lines and we even get some new, action-packed footage not featured in any of America’s trailers.
