    This is about as cute as Star Wars can get.

    Respecting the canon?

    More info on what Disney plans to do..


    In an interview with CNBC Tuesday, Walt Disney Co. chairman and CEO Robert Iger confirmed that in addition to releasing “Star Wars: Episode VII,” Disney will also distribute “a few” stand-alone films that are not part of the overall saga.

    Kasdan, who co-wrote the screenplay for “Star Wars: Episode V — The Empire Strikes Back,” and Kinberg are working on the scripts for two of those projects.

    Online speculation has suggested Yoda would be the subject of one of the movies, but Iger did not specify which characters might receive stand-alone treatment.

    It was well done. They did a good job incorporating some of the rumors and leaks. The real trailer is even better, though. JJ Abrams is the shit.

    That Sith with the cool lightsaber is Gwendoline Christie, I'm pretty sure - she has a pretty distinctive walk.

    Meh. Apart from the cool light saber in the forest, that trailer left me distinctly meh. There's got to be better scenes than those.

    Really? I was left with the distinct impression that this is going to be an actual movie. With suspenseful scenes and everything. I'm sure Episode I had a ton of eye candy in its teaser.

    That light saber seems pretty dumb, and it makes me worry a little about this one falling prey to pointless eye candy like that last one did. But Abrams' style seems perfect for this franchise, so I still have hope. I enjoyed his takes on Star Trek too, but he seems a better fit for Star Wars.

    I am amazed at how many people are upset that the trailer is so short. It's a teaser trailer! The movie is a year off!

    Although there was altogether too much CGI in the prequel trilogy, I wouldn't say that too much eye candy even cracked the top 10 problems for that particular section of the series. In fact, I would say it was about the only thing it had going for itself.

    No kidding. There's no worse kind of weird than that of a grown-up Star Wars nerd.

    I am also amazed at the number of people that think the movie is going to suck based off of a teaser trailer

    Well obviously. But if Lucas hadn't spent so much time on that he might've spent more than a couple days on the plot and script.

    I saw a scene with the millennium falcon, a droid rolling in the desert, someone racing on a pod, and a voiceover. It seemed like it was thrown together, with not much thought about showing something unique. I'm not saying I won't be in line near the opening day. But it wasn't one of the better trailers I've seen.

    Please post the teaser trailers you liked better and tell us what makes them better.

    Here's one:



    If you're going to hook me, an old school Star Wars fan, pay more homage to its legacy. Remind me why I loved Star Wars before. Give me something 'familliar', while showing something that's new and cool.
