    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 actually cried too, when it got to Chewie and Han. I've never been a super fan of Star Wars as a whole, but Han Solo is one of my favorite characters ever- his rapport with Chewie being a big part of that fondness. And yeah, that passing of time aspect put a (bittersweet) whammy on me that lasted all afternoon.

    (I suspect this being somewhat on the heels of losing Nimoy/Spock has amplified the nostalgia, at least for me.)

    When I saw that crashed Star Destroyer, I thought holy crap, this film means business.

    Harrison Ford has aged much better than Mark Hamill. I saw Hamill in a movie recently, and I did not even recognize him.

    Yeah, I thought Hamill was lookin' pretty rough the last time I saw him.

    The beard might actually be helpful.

    George Lucas is almost certainly an INTJ. Almost everything in his biography screams "INTJ."

    I recommend you check out THX-1138 sometime. Particularly if you can get your hands on a VHS version, before the "improvements." I think his early success and the anxiety of working on the set of the original Star Wars kind of hurt him as a filmmaker (the anxiety prompting an over-reliance on technology).

    Over-analysis of the second teaser trailer.

    Still, if you take anything away: There's a lot of stuff in there that mirrors stuff from the original trilogy -- it seems pretty specifically designed to connect back to the original, in terms of scenes and framing -- which is perhaps why some people are having a powerful response to it, it's evoking memories connected to the original.

    I like the idea of Gwendoline Christie being some kind of Imperial tasked with pursuing the good guys that this analysis hints at (which is spoiler free). If this is true, it's an excellent idea.

    I wonder how Max Von Sydow fits into this. Is he a Palpatine-type figure, with only a small role in this, but potentially a larger one in the next two movies?

    I saw a few potential minor spoilers today, but I don't want to ruin it for you if it's true... (not that it said much, it just gave a very general idea of what those particular actors might be doing in the film). If you Google it, you might be able to find it.... not sure of the URL right now. In general, I'm trying to stay away from definitive spoilers myself.
