The Force is Strong in J.J.

3? 5? 10? More than 10?

How many times have you watched the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer since it debuted just yesterday afternoon? While there are still many questions and surprises that remain for Episode VII, a few things are clear:

  • This movie will be rooted like the first three Star Wars movies that premiered in theaters between 1977-1983 to surreal fanfare, which were centered in realism without heavy interference from distractingly obvious special effects
  • There are at least 3 new lead characters that will open the story up into new, exciting directions
  • Harrison Ford Han Solo and Chewbacca look fantastic and Luke Skywalker’s narration was a fantastic homage to the character and a past film, as well as being a very intriguing plot teaser…
  • Christopher Nolan’s cinematic treasure, The Dark Knight trilogy, has inspired yet another movie franchise. This time, it’s the ambiguously broken/battered villain mask of Darth Vader that is reminiscent of the image of Batman’s mask in The Dark Knight Rises
  • So far, J.J. Abrams is proving that he was definitely the right choice for this Star Wars resurgence

Go ahead, watch it again:

Only 8 more months to go!

  1. 6 is my number… absolute chills with the first panning shot of the star destroyer in the desert. It just FEELS SO AUTHENTIC. My girlfriend was watching as well and says, “oh, is that from the first movie?” NOPE, JJ is just NAILING it, dear!
