After violently refreshing the iTunes trailer page for the last two hours, the newest Star Wars trailer has arrived.  December 2015 cannot arrive soon enough!  I have full faith in J.J. Abrams.  Plus that Falcon shot is crazy good.  STAR WARS!!!

 

 

What do all of you think of the trailer?

Best. Black. Friday. EVER!

  1. I am so excited looking at that trailer, I can barely form thoughts. It’s like I’m ten years old again and everything is awesome!

  2. Laurel,

    I know, right? I really enjoyed Abrams take on Star Trek but I felt he would have been better suited for Star Wars. Then lo and behold, he got the job for Episode VII. He is a huge fan of the films (primarily the Original Trilogy) so I know that the first movie, at least, is in good hands.

    I am not one of the detractors that make fun of him for anamorphic lens flares or critique him for his hand in Lost. I think he gets it. Just look at Super 8, and you can see he knows how to direct people (kids even) which is something I think Lucas lacked. I have great hope for this, and the trailer is a good sign.

    I love the new X-Wings, the rectangular dish on the Falcon (cause, ya know, Lando broke the circular disc off during Jedi), and even the strange lightsaber with the cross guard is growing on me (sort of). Overall I love the look of a Star Wars that appears lived in. Everything is not all shiny and new, but worn down and battle tested. Plus Abrams has shown that he is willing to use practical effects over CGI.

    Count me impressed. This trailer is nearly all I have been able to think about for the past two days!
