I am much more excited for JJ Abrams' Star Trek aesthetic applied to Star Wars than whatever the fuck Lucas tried doing with the prequels.  The last two Star Treks were pretty great Star Wars movies themselves.

This looks like great fun.  I am definitely hyped, but I am not expecting this to in any way continue the OT's legacy or wipe away the PT's sins.  Just...a fun movie!

Hilt's a little strange tho

Well, it will be a vastly different universe than the EU that was... given how bad they mucked it up, that's fine, I suppose.

But yeah, looks like loads of Stormtroopers on Tattooine 30 years after Death Star II... which is odd... and Boyega is playing or is just impersonating a Stormtrooper, Isaac is a Rebellion (or New Republic) fighter pilot?  Neat.  Will look forward to finding out more about the new folks.

EU went to shit right around the Vong invasion. What the BLUE FUCK was that all about.

I'm surprised they went with this instead of another full reboot (of course the latter takes more effort and talent). The 'remnants of the empire' storylines were always the most boring :zzz stuff in the expanded universe they decided to destroy, not sure why they're going with this apart from a need to shoehorn all the old characters from the first movies in. I'm sure it'll be a decent action flick since the Star Treks were alright, but as someone who considers himself a pretty big star wars guy the whole setting of this movie doesn't get me hype.

Hopefully this means we can start getting more star wars games this time :rejoice battlefront soon come

I quit at the Vong stuff, too.  I've read plot summaries - it certainty didn't get better afterwards.

I was super glad they didn't go that route for the movies.....I had a slight tinge of fear on that.

Seriously though, the best part of the SW universe was the possibilities, and that's why i kept buying the games and occasional book / comic as a kid. Like, what kind of weird ass aliens will be on this planet. What strange part of the jedi/force will this story reveal? What kind of society is on this planet? Cool new ships/gadgets? Because for me the actual stories werent very good, it's why (IMO) SW translates so well to games, the visual and exploration aspect made it perfect for games like KotoR and Jedi Knight.

So when you see tie fighters, the millenium falcon, tatooine, stormtroopers, x-wings and you know there's a recycled cast coming

I think this makes a bad argument because of course they're showing this stuff off. You think they'd advertise what's NEW in the new trilogy when they're trying to make OT fans have a modicum of excitement? They want to butter up the old fans before anything else. Personally I never found SW like that, though I can see how you would. For me, SW was always about action and adventure in a nice package. It just scratches a particular itch and the exploratory/discovery thing was always more Trek's lane than Star Wars for me. That trailer had everything I like and expect from Star Wars: strange worlds with strange inhabitants, bad ass imagery, SPACE FIGHTS :gun, gun shoot outs, and laser swords with a nice brisk pace.

It was never an argument, it was an opinion. I consider myself a big fan of the old trilogy, and I want something different than this and I'm sure other fans feel the same, so...

Of course I want action. But that was the problem with the last movies. Too much action, not enough banter, boring worlds (except Naboo and old Coruscant). With this, it's the third time we've been on Tatooine in the movies, and if you played the games or read the books the setting is used over and over and over again. There's no mystery to it anymore for me, and that's the best part.

As has been touched on before JJ is probably more suited for Star Wars than he was for Stark Trek at least when it comes to what I expected from Star Trek.

I think the movies will almost certainly be solid movies. I'm not sure JJ is capable of making something timeless in the way the original movies are but I guess we'll see.

At this point, I'll settle for something competent out of the new movies, which I'm confident Abrams can deliver. Let's be real, the prequels shat all over the goodwill built up for this franchise so much that I think we'll all just be happy if we get something better than that.

Ok that looks badass. I'm guessing we'll get an extended trailer for the Superbowl, with Luke/Han/Leia.

Admittedly my anticipation is largely based around the fact that there's virtually no way this could be worse than the prequels. Abrams is overrated but he gets Star Wars, whereas he clearly didn't "get" Star Trek imo and made it something it's not.

It's not going to be hard to find someone with a nice visual eye for space shit, made even easier due to Abrams already having guidelines down for practical effects. It's harder to get a script that isn't distinguished mentally-challenged fellowed. However as I said, there's no way it'll be worse than Lucas' dialogue so I'm cool.

I like the broadsword saber but when you think about it, the point of a broadsword crossguard is to avoid getting your hand fucked up. But if you're a jedi or sith, you're capable of blocking laser shots with your eye closed, why would you need protection of any kind lol.

But fuck it, looks cool to me.

also anakin chopped off samuel l jackson's hand.

who knows, the energy blade of this broadsword lightsaber is all crackling and unstable compared to others shown.  maybe it's meant to look more eviler, or maybe it's a sith struggle and he's can't build a proper lightsaber.

I also like the the lightsaber used as a light source.  the series is inconsistent about that but it's something in the games.
