I am not a fan of Disney Star Wars and all the movies they’ve made. This is not the direction I wanted for the franchise. I wanted the George Lucas vision made with another director controlling his crazy ideas.
But even then, even with Disney, even when the sale went through and we started getting information. You know, even what I wanted? I wanted the Star Wars we were promised in the trailers in The Force Awakens, the Episode VII. Warning, fanboy level dialog kept for historical accuracy.
We watch the Teaser trailer:
Holy crap, who is this guy in the storm trooper costume and why is he in Tatooine, he looks like he went through something.
There’s been an awakening? Who is that voice? What does he refer to?
Holy crap, who are these new storm troopers?
What is that girl escaping from?
X-Wings? going on some type of mission?
Holy crap a new Sith!
The Falcon is back!
I can’t wait to see a new Star Wars film.
Granted this first teaser wasn’t as great as it was pandering a little too much to the OT but whatever, never ran through my mind since they’re clearly going to tell new stories.
We watch the first trailer:
“Who are you?” “I’m no one” OMG who is she, this is exciting she must be someone important and she’s in Tatooine. She mirrors Luke’s origin but at the same time you know there’s something special about her. Can’t wait to find out more about her.
Holy crap, that’s a lot of remnants of the Empire, what are they planning, how are they back?
“I was raised to do one thing, now I’ve got nothing to fight for”
Wow, clearly something happened to this guy that had him make such a sharp turn in his life, this music is beautiful, it sets him up as this hero, I can’t wait to see his journey in the movie and see him become a hero.
“Nothing will stand in our way. I will finish, what you started.”
That’s a beautiful shot, who is this guy, I can’t wait to find out more about him, they wouldn’t be stupid enough to have Darth Vader 2.0 so I’m excited, the mask and all should tell us they’ll do something totally different with him. What’s his obsession with Darth Vader, what connections did he have?
The Love theme with Han Solo? Crap, he’s going to teach these new heroes to go on their adventure. Awesome.
There’s more sith along side this new Kylo Ren guy? Holy crap, this is epic.
The Empire vs Rebels, I wonder what that really is I wonder how they’re still fighting 30 years into the future, can’t wait to find out how things got the way they are now, clearly it has to be something epic.
Wow, that new character Finn has a lightsaber, he’s going to become a Jedi. I don’t understand why people are complaining, it’s clear that Rey girl will also become a Jedi. Cool, we have two Jedi in training and a bunch of Sith to go against.
We watch the third trailer:
This will be the last trailer/commercial I watch, I don’t want to spoil too much.
Holy crap, something big happened in Tatooine, a big battle. Wow Luke is talking, it’s his dialog from Return of the Jedi but it’s newly recorded dialog! He is talking about Darth Vader!, himself, his siter and not only Leia this time but someone else, who is getting this lightsaber? I bet it’s Rey, it has to be her. His family has this power, she or whoever Luke is referring to in the trailer is a Skywalker continuing the legacy of the first two trilogies, the new generation, even if not Rey it has to be a Skywalker.
All these action scenes look great and wow who is this Captain Phasma character,s he looks like a total Boss, clearly they haven’t shown a lot about her because she’s going to be something special.
That last Han Solo part was a bit gratuitous, I hope they don’t use him in a bad way. That BB-8 robot looks like a cheap R2D2 replacement for the sake of “new” lame.
We watch Episode VII the Force Awakens:
Well, I just finished watching this but I don’t know how to feel, it was cool but I don’t know why I’m not excited. Wait, it wasn’t that good, it was just Episode IV ANH re-done. We didn’t get any of the answers promised in the trailers, none of them. We don’t know who Rey is or why things are back to the status quo of the OT. Phasma was just thrown down a garbage shoot? We have a new Emperor? What? Maybe Episode VIII will finally answer these issues?
*Complains Online* Well I’m swamped with messages that I’m wrong because everyone except me loved the movie..
