Star Wars, nothing but Star Wars...

Recommended Posts

Did anybody else expect him to say "we aint found shit"? Fucking Mel Brooks ruined this trailer for me 26 years ago.

The sound of an imperial probe droid while the guy was in the desert gave me flashbacks to my childhood.

If the kid from Attack the Block (holy shit, he's an adult now!) is a defecting stormtrooper (or even a loyalist on a mission) rather than a good guy pretending to be a stormtrooper, I will be impressed.

That would make a bit of sense, since there've been leaks and rumors associating him with both the good guys and bad.

The teaser was actually a little underwhelming for me, mostly because we've seen almost literally everything in it already, either through official channels (the X-wings, the Falcon, the desert planet, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley) or leaks (the stormtroopers). The broadsword lightsaber was the only real surprise in it. But that said, it's still nice to see. The shot of the X-Wings water-skimming is pretty epic.

I guess I really just want to know what the hell the plot is and what the characters are doing. I already know that the movie is visually fantastic just from all the photos and talk of practical effects we've seen.

Wouldn't you prefer to go in cold? Be immersed in the film and go with the story naturally?

To a degree. I just want a vague, general plot synopsis. Maybe some similarly vague, general character descriptions. I don't want the entirety of the movie spoiled, of course, but I'm okay with knowing what square one is in the new movie before I see it.

To be fair, there's going to be a screen crawl that tells you that right at the beginning anyway.

As someone as who's about as familiar with Star Wars as Ian is with comic books, I find it funny that the most online discussion stems from the Light-Saber. Like, ALOT of online discussion.

Between the new lightsaber, "it's a couple new characters I know nothing about," and "here's a bunch of imagery I saw when I was 8," the new lightsaber is the most interesting thing in that teaser.

People are VERY CONCERNED that the imaginary laser-sword's new additions are impractical.

I'm pretty sure everything Jedi do is impractical. But then again, we're dealing with clairvoyant telekinetic swordsmen with thousands of years of martial arts history. So really anything goes.

Did the Millenium falcon just pull a barn swallow?

Stabilized GIF.

At this point, I actually prefer Tom Kane's Yoda from The Clone Wars to Oz's Yoda from the prequels. Something about Oz's performance really changed between the trilogies, and not for the better. It could have been a choice, but it might not have been. Tom Kane said that for The Clone Wars, George Lucas specifically asked him to play Yoda "like Empire Yoda" rather than match Oz's prequel-era Yoda voice.
