    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?

    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)

    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:

    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 :biggrin::
