I really hope by now that everyone has seen the beauty that is the new Star Wars trailer. A co-worker of mine came up to me on Thursday asking me about it, and I'm a little ashamed to admit that I didn't realize it was coming out then, so I had to drop everything and watch it right there, and oh my gosh.
Right from the get go, I was completely overwhelmed. I love how it opens up and you can see all the leftovers from the Civil War, like the crashed Star Destroyer in the background (on a whole new planet!) and I love the shot of the decrepit Vader mask and Luke's whole voiceover. I'm also really diggin' the black and red TIE fighters and how clean the stormtroopers look. I can only assume that that's Luke putting his hand on R2, and I'm preeeetty sure that's Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber being handed off. Hands down though, the best part of the entire thing, which my heart still isn't over, is Han and Chewie at the end and "Chewie, we're home." The second I heard that, I lost it.
This has literally been the only thing I've been able to talk about for days. I've watched it countless times and I'll watch it countless more. I've never been this excited about a movie (or probably, anything) and I need a time machine or something so it can be December already.
What do you guys think of it?
I wasn't very moved or impressed by the trailer myself... it pretty much looks like what I would expect from a trailer. I guess I'm just not that much of a fan of the usual Hollywood-style; so full of clichés.ReplyDelete
That said, the strong point of it was definitely that last shot featuring Han and Chewie. I certainly did get a big grin on my face when I saw that!
I'm trying not to expect too much from it (I don't want to be disappointed like with episode 1 to 3), but I can't help looking forward towards December either. ^^
