I am a Star Wars fan from way back when, meaning the very first film back in 1977. I even kind of like the prequels though I grew to hate Jar-Jar Binks. (I seem to have a lot of company in that)
So I was very interested in the trailer for the new movie, The Force Awakens. I just viewed it again on my computer for the second time. Haven't seen it on the big screen yet, though I bet it will look fantastic when I do.
And, so far, it looks...promising.
I'm not going to do a scene by scene blow here. I admit I'm a geek, just not THAT big of one. But it appears that we have some cool stuff to look forward to. Stormtroopers? Check. Interesting-looking new lightsaber? Check. Millennium Falcon doing impressive maneuvers? Check. No Jar-Jar Binks? So far, so good.
There was also no sign of Luke, Leia, or Han (though we might have gotten a glimpse of Han and Leia's daughter and who was piloting the Falcon, anyway?) but we know they're going to show up sooner or later.
The upshot is I'm looking forward to this next installment of Star Wars. If that makes me a hopeless fangirl, all I have to say is "May the Force be with you!!"
