Default Star Wars Episode 7

Anyone seen the trailer yet?

All I can say is -
"Woah! It looks like the film's going to be much better than I'd imagined!!"

Great teaser trailer. I loved seeing the production design:

revised Stormtrooper helmet
Millennium Falcon rectangular radar dish
new light saber
new X-wing design

all awesome

Not too keen on the cinematography.
Doesn't match the other trilogies very well.
however how much can you gather from 88 seconds?

Default Star Wars 7 - The Hype Continues....

Speaking as someone for whom the original premise of Star Wars was utterly ruined by the three prequels and the horrible, imagination-bereft, CGI-laden universe thereby created, I can muster no enthusiasm for the next instalment. I am transported back over thirty years, when I resolutely attempted to avoid all pictures and articles about the much-anticipated Return of The Jedi, until the fateful day a magazine fell open and I saw, to my dismay, a half-completed Death Star. Lucas had just gone back to the well and started recycling, even then. As I scrolled down the main index page of this Forum, I couldn't help but notice "Star Wars Episode 7" and immediately beneath it, "Haven't We Been Here Before.....".

Please be assured this isn't a rant against all of those people who avidly await any and all news, pictures and updates on the eagerly awaited new Episode: you're all entitled to be really excited about it, and I hope that it's worth the wait. I just cannot raise the enthusiasm. I'm looking ahead to 2015 and the Thunderbirds series with equal amounts of hope and trepidation. It's another re-boot, and my only excuse for any excitement I feel is that I keep telling myself I've had to wait 50 years for another Thunderbirds series.

I usually try to be quite positive and upbeat about things, but fear that we are heading into a new era of endless copies and ever bigger, ever shinier trinkets to occupy our attentions. Effects were always meant to be there to help tell a story, but there had to be a story there to begin with. As Fisher, Hamill and Ford get together for the infamous "one last job", I hope that it's a cracking story, full of surprises and twists, which proves me wrong. But, on the other hand......

Kindest regards

Patrick

Ditto above...
My love of Star Wars ended 1/2 hour into Return of the Jedi after the rescue of Han, when we got yet another Death Star and........... Ewoks!

Agree.

I consider STAR WARS(1977) and ESBK(1980) to be the best films. I am hoping that THE FORCE AWAKENS is as good.
