Well… I’m hyped.
Unless you’ve been living on the other side of Endor you’ll know what I’m talking about. There is a new Teaser Trailer for Star Wars Episode VII – The Force Awakens. And within seconds it got me excited like a little kid waiting for Christmas presents, everything about that trailer was just spot on, perfect:
a bit of nostalgia with Mark Hamills voice-over, Darth Vader’s helmet, the crashed Star Destroyer, etc. Not to forget that final shot of Han Solo and Chewie aboard the Millenium Falcon that just wants to let you know that it actually is still Star Wars even though it comes from the king of lens flares.
But there’s also a taste of the new things to come, a new story, with Luke saying: “You have that Power [aka. the force] too”. In the context of his speech (“The Force is strong in my family…”) that would imply that he is talking to his (or Leia’s) son or daughter and that (s)he is to become a Jedi.
Long story short: I can’t wait for December to watch this.
