Released, the teaser trailer has been
I'm carefully optimistic, apparently they're primarily going for classical practical effects as opposed to the CGI nightmare that gave us the unmentionable who shall not be mentioned.
Hard to really get anything from the teaser. I put my faith in JJ. I think he's a good director. It does have a retro feel which I think is good.
So everything will be different in this than any of the extended universe stuff right? They de-cannonized all of EU or something?
I'm curious what this movie might be bout. It looks like the Millennium Falcon is in it, so it's not too far into the future from Return of the Jedi?
From what I've read it's only 30 years
O...so it's almost roughly real time? lol
Do you know if Old Han and Old Luke will be in it?
Yes they are, which is why it's not too far in the future
I think a teaser this far ahead of the release could backfire on them. (yes they do this a lot just many movies end up regretting it by release time)
Release is scheduled for December 2015.
Times have changed - it used to be that when a cool trailer came out, the next day everyone would just be talking about it
Nowadays, they're all vying to outdo it by the next day
Even Star Wars Kid has come a long way since he first appeared a dozen years ago:
If this doesn't make you hyped I don't know what could:
OOh the handles of the light Sabre light up now.
A new trailer was released yesterday... I am looking forward to the movie...
Definitely looking forward to it.
Some "behind the scenes" stuff:
The Empire seems to have relocated...
Alternative trailer with other shots (from Walt Disney Studios Japan):
I've told myself to keep my expectations down, but I must admit that my expectations are now quite high, these screenshots from the Japanese trailer above are sooo cool, in my opinion :
I got tickets for opening night!
Who would of thought Jar Jar is the Sith lord
