    I'm gonna geek out since I never do. Screw all the naysayers, this will be a great flick. Complaining about changes from a teaser is ridiculous!

    I'm still surprised nobody said "cliche" yet

    Especially when you are comparing 2014 to 1977!

    3. The fighter pilots also have a new design that makes sense.
    The suit they are wearing is now basically a cheap armor and has many built in features such as tracking devices, parachutes, communicators, battery packs, etc.
    Disney actually did a REALLY good and details job when they layed everything out from the OT and then made proper technological evolution that all made sense and were realistic given 30 years has passed. Im very excited to get my hands on some new EU material and cant wait for the movies.

    The lightsabre is actually not a "re-invention" or "envision". You dont even need to be a SW freak to know this one, simply play Knights of the old Republic to understand how they work. Anywho, lightsabre's work because of a type of crystal and each crystal basically has its own properties. Different colors, different lengths, different thicknesses, etc. The "new" sabre is actually nothing more then a thinner version from what we are used to, the Jedi's will be the same as the old and the other sith members may as well have the same older style ones. Although im sure they will introduce many different types over the span of a few movies, books and comics.


    And i feel the need to remind you that JJ is simply the director. He is a competent director and from everything we've seen he seems to have a very good understanding of what made Star Wars great and seems to appreciate the OT for what it is.
    That being said the writer of the first two movies is Lawrence Kasden. The man who wrote Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Raiders of the Lost Ark and ghost writer of Temple of Doom. So JJs writing abilities don't necessarily apply and we add Kasdens writing to JJs "slick" movie making abilities and Anthony Danial's might be right, we could have a better movie then ESB. I doubt it, but ive already put it above the PT at least.

    I had the fortune of being old enough to hit the theater as a kid for Episode IV back in the day. Not only do I think it's a great flick, but the nostalgia ties are strong with this one as one could imagine. The feeling of being completely awestruck, and about as significant as nothing more than a faceless speck on a rotating rock was strong after having all that Lucas action flash before my retinas... Hooked.

    Had all manner of Star Wars stuff. Action sets, figures, etc. at some point as well. Basically i'm up for anything from the SW universe. Loved IV,V,VI (Empire )

    but I,II,III not so much... Holding out hope though that we might get a taste of the glory days with the new ones. No need to knock/ hype anything from where i'm sitting. I'll give them a fair shot as I do with any flick or show, and i'm just glad to see another offering from that world... but have no illusions that these are going to surpass the connections I have with 4,5,6 (especially 4) Don't think it'd be possibe. It'd take a time machine to do that.

    OT = Original Trilogy (4, 5, 6)
    NT = New Trilogy (really just new movies now since they are not limiting them to trilogies)
    PT = Prequel Trilogy (1, 2, 3, Clone Wars Cartoons)
    EU = Expanded Universe (Comics, Novels, Games, etc)
    GL = George Lucas

    (Timeline, Yavin = 0 = ANH)
    BBY = Before Battle of Yavin
    ABY = After Battle of Yavin

    TPM = The Phantom Menace
    TCW = The Clone Wars
    ROTS = Revenge of the Sith
    ANH = A New Hope
    ESB = Empire Strikes Back
    ROTJ = Return of the Jedi

    KOTOR = Knights of the Old Republic
    TOR = The Old Republic
    TSL = The Sith Lords
    JA = Jedi Academy
    LOTF = Legacy of the Force
    FOTJ = Fate of the Jedi
    NJO = The New Jedi Order
    TOTJ = Tales of the Jedi

    That's all i can think of right now.

    The Lightsaber guard seems kind of Silly. If a saber touched the hilt it would melt through it.

    Oh wait the idea of a blade made out light is kinda silly... bit still.
    I guess they're just trying to top Maul's dual saber.

    The idea of a hilt is so your hand does not slide up the blade when you are making any kind of stabbing motion.
    Ive always wondered why more lightsabre's didnt have hilts, seems like a good safety feature.

    Well this is what everybody wanted, well mostly...

    That being the films being taken out of Lucas' hands and put into the hands of someone else.

    As long as the Jedi/Sith Saga isn't shoved down our throats like it was in the Prequels, I'll give it a fair shot.

    The original Trilogy was about the Rebellion against the Empire, with the Jedi/Sith as a backdrop to that. Keep it that way.

    Make the space battles mean something, give our pilots faces again, give us some real stakes. Don't just spam me with over done colorful space battles done in CG, like the Prequel Trilogy did, which all felt flat as hell.

    Keep Han Solo cool. I know he's an old fart now, but don't make him some fucking grumpy old man for the sake of it. Keep him witty and adventurous. Keep Luke humble and not a whiny brat like they made his father in the Prequel Trilogy. Same for Leia, I want Princess/Commander Leia of the rebellion, not that boring stiff face Padme. Same goes for Lando, if they decide to bring back the character at any point in the new trilogy.

    Give the Empire and the Rebels faces and commanders. Don't just give me shots of them just for the fucking sake of showing them, meanwhile the focus is elsewhere. They all had faces and names in the Original Trilogy.

    If they follow what 6 and EU established then Leia will be a jedi or at the very least, have some jedi training.

    This looks really good, however I try not to invest too much stock into a theatrical trailer. If it's anything like Return of The Jedi that is a win, although at :53 worries me. I don't think it is even possible it reach the epicness of Star Wars (A New Hope) or The Empire Strikes Back.
