So, those who are hyped, how many are fans of the original trilogy?


I'm sure there are millions that loved the original trilogy that are really excited for this.


I'm asking the posters here because the trailer could literally have been any movie.

Me! Raised on the originals since I was a kid.  I can't wait!!

 

But don't mind me.  I like the prequels, too.

I'm super hyped for this. I think it looks more serious and less corny than the new trilogy was.... I swear, if there's a jar jar banks equivalent character in this, I will stop watching immediately.


I don't know how you can be hyped about a movie that decided to go all "pc" for the sake of sales. What two US demographics have always, by in large anyway, ignored Star Wars? Women? Yes. African Americans? Yes. So, HEY!! Let's put those two as the main protagoists and...MONEY!

 

It is so obvious.. so plain to see, that I don't know how anyone can't help but feel played at this point. I know I do. 



I think I asked it again but I'll ask again: Are these movies based on the books available? So people who read the books already know what will happen?



I'm not over excited for the movie, but the trailer gave me goosebumps



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

They specifically said they dropped everything concerning the expanded universe, like all books, comics ect...

Only the existing movies count as lore for the new one.

Ok. Because unless you're a fan, I don't see anything to be excited about. It's not like they showed anything amazing.

Meh. So the movies are something different from what people can already read on jedipedia and this stuff. Great (not).

I mean, I can understand it from a monetary point because people don't have the option to spoil other people and to hurt cinema income but seriously, for "real" SW fans that consumed everything surrounding it, I can see that they are disappointed by this.

I think it is better that way. Otherwise the majority of people would just be confused by charackters and plot-related events that reference stuff they have never heard about.

This new movie needs to be simple and straight forward, not a convolutred mess like the prequel trilogy where people got confused by new characters that were previously introduced in the clone wars series.

If this movie is a success, they can go with a more detailed approach from there.
