    The Earth has cities, forests, oceans, clouds and deserts. Therefore, Star Wars must have a city planet, a cloud planet, a desert planet, a forest planet, and an ocean planet. But the Earth also has roosters. So where's the cock planet?

    Teaser Trailer 2
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I'm curious to know if the Boyega character is a rebel infiltrator, or part of the Empire (possibly a defector). It would be especially interesting if it was the latter.

    I'll bet the cool Luke Skywalker rumor I heard was true. Excellent... it sounded like an awesome original idea.

    The wreckage of Star Destroyers was thematically intriguing. It recalled the original trilogy, yet the rust suggested that this would be an entirely new beast, not a mere remake.

    Again, I like the medieval influence on that Sith Lord helmet.

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I actually cried at the end. I'm so pathetic.
    But seriously, this is like a cultural landmark, with resonance -- and kind of the "true" heir to the original movies, versus all that prelude crap. It's pretty sad when a stupid teaser evokes more pathos than full-length features.

    Basically the movie characters have aged as much as the viewers have. There's a cool kind of resonance there. They are returning, and so are we. And we all have the feeling (characters and audience) of that time passing.

    ---

    I loved the ruins of the star destroyer there. Cool opening shot. Again, it suggests the passage of time, the ruins of the past, searching for something that has been lost... and then of course, is found as we hear a phrase we recognize from prior stories.

    We finally saw a few glimpses of Sith reminiscent of the computer games, where the Sith really got to do something. Looks great.

    I am surprised that I am cautiously excited about this movie. I suppose all of my cynicism was a defense mechanism against George Lucas. Hell, I think I held INTJs everywhere accountable for his sins.

    I do have to say that I am a bit apprehensive about Han looking the same as he did so many years ago. Does that mean he had been drifting, lost in space, for years or is he just actually the braggadocios man-child that he seemed?

    He looked old to me. His face is wrinkly, his hair is gray, his voice is raspy.

    Yeah, he's older. I dunno, I guess I hoped he'd be all settled in by now. He's probably flying that old ship still.

    I thought they were coming back to it, in that last bit.

    My only quibble is Chewbacca should have some grey at the temples too.
