For the first time, I’m actually thinking this will be worth the price of a cinema ticket (and I’m a huge Star Wars fan). I know trailers don’t always give an accurate picture of what the film will be like, but it certainly looks more promising than before!
As my dad put it, it looks like “real” Star Wars (an era we’re all familiar with) but with a grittier, chewier spin on it. Yet there is a still a hint of Grand Space Opera that is what Star Wars should be about.
Yes, it’s going to be nice to move away from the Jedi and see some more normal people, but I’m also glad they are still closely linked to major events in the classic era. Original X-Wings, Death Star, stormtroopers and Darth Vader all wrapped up in what looks like a central story between a father and daughter.
Big if it delivers. Can’t beat a bit of spectacle either…!
I like the looks of it so far, but I’m a little pissed that Disney have thrown out all of the EU stuff. This should be a story about Kyle Katarn and Jan Ors.
But double for two female British leads in the first two new films. I’ve always known the Star Wars franchise to like casting in the UK (they studio shoot in the UK, so there’s a convenience factor), but giving so many lead roles is a bit of a surprise.
If anything, I’m definitely sure the Star Wars films are always worth the cinema ticket.
I sincerely hope however that this film will go beyond the classic scenario of “yet again another story of a super mass destruction weapon called death star”. And avoid some of the scenaritic plot holes that are unfortunately so common in all AAA film productions.
Oh well, at least we’re sure this death star won’t exploed at the end
