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 didn't see any 'african americans' in the trailer. What are you talking about?

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

 

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


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

They really do not need to show anything amazing and to be honest for a trailer probably would be best to keep it in the movie.  Being Star Wars alone is enough to get people into the theaters from there the movie will sell if it lives up to the expectations.  

Personally I find living in the past limits a movie or story especially since that story arc is done.  I rather access this movie from what it’s trying to build today and the future of the franchise then live in the past because no matter how nostalgic people are about the previous movies, by today’s standards they would be average movies at best.

I grew up watching all the Star Wars movies, played all the games, read all the comic books and novels.  When I look at this trailer I see they are trying to kick start the new series like the old.  A beginning where someone average finds that they have a destiny far greater than they thought their life would be.  It could be good or bad, but at least it looks like it probably will be entertaining.  The trailer is only giving people enough information to let them know the characters from the original is in this new movie.  I believe it would be a waste to add anything more that should be discovered within the movie instead of spoiling it early.



Being Star wars alone was enough to get me in the theaters for episode 1. Not anymore after that though. This trailer doesn't look anything special to me. I'll still get it on blu-ray or blue-4k when available, no rush.

so what you're saying is the movie is not good because there's a black lead actor and a woman. You are selling this movie short because no Star Wars movie before ever had a black actor or a woman in it. I think you need to go back and rewatch the original Star Wars movies and the new series of movies, they all had a black actor and women. Im also curious why did you single my response out of everyone who said they are hyped for this movie.

Looks like your regular, blockbuster. No difference between this and a new Star Trek movie trailer.


If by that you mean, the new Star Trek movies ripped off the original Star Wars films, while completely butchering their own source material, okay.... 

By the way, you do realize that the director of The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams, was the director of the new Star Trek movies.  If you watched the new Star Trek films, which I suffered through, Abrams is clearly more at home with paying homages to Lucas' trilogy while admitting having never watched a single episode of the original Trek. 

If you wanted to call Force Awakens a generic blockbuster, you would have done better with comparing it to something not actually filmed by the same director.

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.


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.

Wait, so your statement implies that anyone not disappointed by this is not a "real Star Wars fan"?

I grew up watching the original trilogy.  Stood on a line wrapped around the back of the theater for Return of the Jedi at 8 years old.  Saw Revenge of the Sith in theaters 10 times (I don't care what anyone says about the prequels, I love Revenge of the Sith).  Collected the action figures (not complete collections mind you) from all the films ( and was old enough by the time of the prequels to keep them in the box this time!).  Have the complete original run of Marvel comics.  Read some of the expanded universe novels.  While the Timothy Zahn novels were great, I eventually stopped reading them when it became clear they were mostly crappy cash grabs on the Star Wars franchise name (see anything written by Kevin J Anderson).  I also have a Boba Fett obsession (have t-shirt, hooded jacket, action figures, Slave I toys, picture with and autograph from Jeremy Bulloch who portrayed Fett in ESB and ROTJ as well as a copy of his novel Flying Solo, and an animation cell of Boba Fett from his appearance on the cartoon Droids, etc.)  I'm also collecting the new Marvel Star Wars comics - Star Wars, Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Lando, and Shattered Empire (drawing the line at Chewbacca though).

Having said all of that, I am extremely hyped by the trailer and have been since the initial teaser trailer.

They'll save that for later--don't want to spoil the story.

What did they new Star Treks rip off of the original Star Wars movies exactly?
