A Year Long Waiting Begins - Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens
Here's the new Star Wars trailer
I don't know about you guys, but I have always been a big fan of Star Wars. To be honest, I can't get enough of it! And for us fans, it has been the most exciting past few days.
In case you happen to live under a rock and haven’t yet seen the new Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens trailer, it is truly my pleasure to give you the new short but, ouh so, promising trailer.
Here’s few of my notes from the trailer:
1. What happened to the light saber?
What’s with the crossguard. It doesn’t really bring any (positive) value to the table and it’s a bit of risk to change the design on the saber. This has also been a bit of a discussion starter with the fanboys. I, if we want to be overly logical and realistic with the issue, feel like that might be a bit dangerous to have the side “flames” and I am not an expert, but would that really stop the saber anyways? I don’t know, maybe. I guess we have to wait and see.. ;)
2. J.J. Abrams seems to show respect to the old sound environment
Something that I am happy for is the fact that the director, J.J. Abrams, decided to show some level of tribute to the old sound environment. This creates nice relation between the movies and the whole series. In my opinion, it also ads value to the new movie. Some times, less is truly more!
