I had to watch the new episode 7 trailer on my lunch break. It made my friday so much better. There are a lot of fake trailers out there, so be careful that you don't get fooled.
Not sure how many bankers out there are also Star Wars fans, but I know there has to be a few.

I really think these new films will help erase the "prequals" from my memory.

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
I saw a fake one - had to be fake since the storm troopers are clones and this one didn't look like the original clone without his helmet.

FYI: Not all storm troopers are clones; that is the case for the timeperiod in which these films occur.

I was a little underwhelmed by the trailer. It looks like an interesting movie, but I wasn't like AAAAAH STAR WARS!!! like I would expect to be.

The unmasked storm trooper being the first thing we see, the little hand-guard deal (whatever you call that) on the sith's blade, the over-the-shoulder camera work in the woods, Daisy on a speeder bike -- I think JJ's message is merely "Don't try to guess what this one's about, I'll (at least try to) surprise you in every way." Meh.

I grew up with Star Wars, I was a kid when the first one came out. Seeing the Falcon in flight, with the music, gave me chills.

If you want to see a good video, look for the one with Kevin Smith (the director) going on the ep. 7 set. He got to go on the Millennium Falcon set. He said he ended up crying with emotion. Listening to him tell the story is pretty funny.

I will have to watch that clip Backstreets.
Has anyone ever see the movie Fanboys. It is about a group of fans and their journey to see Episode 1. It is a great movie (if you are a lifelong SW fan).

It's a teaser - not a trailer. And just hearing the theme music again gave me chills.

Has anyone seen the Lego ones on youtube? Pretty good and funny.

Hmm... Name the only other two non-clone stormtroopers who we've ever seen unmasked. Ding, time's up, it was Han and Luke in disguise in Ep. IV rescuing Leia. So that dude in the teaser might be any hero or bounty hunter or rando other person simply wearing the stormtrooper getup as a disguise.

The clones were used to establish the Empire. Once Palpatine had control the clone process stopped. By Episodes 4, 5 and 6 they were using conscription.

Yes, I am a geek.

I am so happy that this trailer has created such a buzz about SW again. I can't wait for a new story line to begin. I read a lot of the novels, so I am wondering how closley the movies will follow those story lines.
Plus, I am totally ready for some new SW lego sets to come out. Don't judge me; legos are for adults too. :)They are expensive, but cheaper than therapy

I'm not a SW expert by any means. But one thing I did hear was that the next movie(s) won't follow the books closely if at all.

I started reading some of those and they were pretty good until so many different people starting writing them. I can't remember the name of the author whose books I did read. Once so many hands were in the pot I kind of gave up.

Want to see the Dark Horse comics made into movies. Luke goes darkside to get close to the resurrected (clone) emperor, who is young and stronger than ever. He has to find and destroy all the emperor's clones.

I would like to start reading the comics. I like to follow Luke's story line so will have to check those out.

People on Facebook SW groups are complaining about the trailer....er teaser. At this point we have no idea in what context these small snippets have been taken from.

And based on this teaser people are already condemning the movie and saying they won't go see it. Geez. I think it's because it isn't George Lucas Star Wars. It's still Star Wars!!!!

This is why I won't go see Exodus:Gods and Kings. I've read the book a few times, and I'm afraid Hollywood will ruin it.
