Something is wrong with Luke Skywalker.
That much by now seems evident. The Luke Skywalker we’re going to encounter in Star Wars: Episode VII is going to be very different from the hero we’re used to or even from the young man we last knew from those timeless final scenes of Return of the Jedi.
By the way, possible spoilers ahead; so be warned.

So the final trailer has broken out for what is the most rabidly anticipated film since Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.
Which is to say that the final trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens has sent fandom, film buffs and the Internet into a frenzy unseen since… since, well, the first and second teasers for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.
Interestingly enough, it doesn’t reveal that much more than the previous trailer did; but reveals just enough to fascinate and lure us in that little bit further. And, yes, we just saw Princess Leia for the first time since 1983 (think about that).

There’s one definite thing I would’ve done differently if I’d been formulating this teaser for Star Wars: Episode VII. I don’t know who it’s supposed to be doing the voiceover character-wise; but I would’ve got Mark Hamill to say those words. Imagine – imagine – fan reaction if it had been Luke Skywalker’s voice in this teaser! They missed a trick, man.
That voiceover was one of the not-so-encouraging things about the trailer, by the way. Moving on, I’ve chosen to react to this teaser promo (as much as I can) entirely on its own terms and without any reference to how much I didn’t want there to be a new Star Wars trilogy (not because I don‘t love Star Wars – but the opposite).
Also – and I cannot state this loudly enough – we just saw the fucking Millenium Falcon again!!

There’s nothing in all creation more exciting than the words ‘Star Wars trailer’. Nor anything in life as exciting as that moment you see the trailer for a new Star Wars film for the first time. For whether it’s The Phantom Menace in 1999, Return of the Jedi in 1982 or The Force Awakens in 2014, there can only be that one first time you see it.
Tonight great ripples will reverberate throughout the fabric of the Living Force as Star Wars fandom awaits the first official teaser for the new Star Wars Trilogy.
This is what ‘breaking the Internet’ is really about – the first new, live-action Star Wars footage in almost a decade, its appearance the subject of hushed anticipation and with the inevitable trailer breakdowns and analyses to follow; all of it building inexorably to the release of Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens a year from now.

In the 4th Century AD a council of Christian theologians and leaders gathered in Nicaea; the first ecumenical council of the Church was gathered in part to debate and determine what should be considered formal Christian doctrine and what should be considered formal Bible ‘canon’ as well as what should be omitted.
It was a crucial moment in the history of Christianity and Western religion that would affect the lives of millions of people for centuries to follow. Sixteen centuries later, in the year 2014, the modern religion of Star Wars has been undergoing the same critical process.

Information and spurious “updates” concerning the new Star Wars movies continue to flood the web, with new items emerging seemingly every day, some of which need to be taken with a pinch of salt, some of which might be more meaningful. I’m getting bored already of trying to “sift through the fog of lies”, as Palpatine once remarked.
There is of course a predictable level of excitement about the new trilogy, but there’s almost a fatuousness to this excitement in my opinion. I personally am not particularly excited; more sceptical, guarded. Certainly nothing like as excited as I was in the build-up to The Phantom Menace (oh, that trailer!) or Revenge of the Sith. (more…)
