A year and a galaxy away

Star Wars 7 trailer forces audiences to pay attention

I am left in awe of the trailer from Star Wars 7. It was beautiful. Star Wars was my childhood, I had no bigger desire than to have a light saber. It has brought out the nerd in me that I cannot deny. I believe it will do well, not like many other reboots or sequels. The teaser trailer was tantalizing enough to leave people hanging, and reassured the fandom’s fears that it would not be overkill CGI, like The Amazing Spiderman 2 was. The original special effects still look like they will be incorporated in the movie.

There has been some hate over the black Stormtrooper, John Boyega. I don’t think he’s actually a Stormtrooper. I’m pretty sure he is a Jedi. Steve Baer can attest to that as well.

The R2 “soccer ball” droid seems great, and the Stormtroopers in the next scene look revamped, and they just look like they mean business, unlike past Stormtroopers, who seem very dumb and easy to kill.

The X wings flying across the water gave me the shivers. It was just awesome.

Then the light saber with a cross guard made of lasers brings up many questions. Will this light saber actually be better with the cross guard? Are there a lot of new variations of light sabers? Who is the Sith Lord wielding this weapon?

The Millenium Falcon. That’s all I can say.

So this trailer has done an amazing job at getting me pumped for Star Wars, and is making really making me contemplate purchasing a light saber. Or create one.
