If you somehow missed it last week …
In my mind, any concerns about Star Wars: The Force Awakens are now officially put to rest. I shamelessly hereby abandon all cynicism and firmly place my fan boy hat atop my head. The above trailer hit all the right chords with me. This looks like Star Wars. This sounds like Star Wars. This is Star Wars.
Who can deny the Darth Vader helmet, the X-Wing and TIE Fighters, the fallen Star Destroyers, and the Stormtrooopers? Who didn’t rejoice at the roar of the Millennium Falcon, the reverberation of the lightsaber, and the hiss of the TIE Fighters?
Who felt chills at the sound of Luke Skywalker’s voice?
Who flat out teared up at the sight of Han Solo with Chewbacca.
Thank you, J.J. Abrams. Finally, we are all home.
