I deliberately waited some time before attempting to write a review of Star Wars: Episode VII, as when it concerns something like Star Wars one really needs time to process their reaction before committing to a viewpoint.
I also don’t like posting anything amid the flurry of knee-jerk reactions and reviews that accompany the release, and prefer to get some distance beyond the immediate hype before formulating my thoughts. And moreover, something as complex and subjective as a Star Wars movie also needs time to age, especially if – like me – you’re a deep Star Wars fan. Our view of The Force Awakens may be different six months from now; it may also be different years from now, once the other films in this trilogy have emerged and we can see the whole picture more fully.
Nevertheless I have now had time to gather my thoughts: needless to say, major spoilers will soon follow. Also there will be talk of midi-chlorians, so be warned about that too.

As Episode VII of the Star Wars saga hits cinemas and begins a brand new chapter in the mythology of the galaxy far, far away, here’s a timely revisit to all the existing films in the magical universe Uncle George made.
Even die-hard fans have mixed feelings about the six existing films, particularly in regard to the prequel trilogy, which has been excessively and mostly unfairly maligned.

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).

As fandom continues to go gaga over the latest teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I continue to be (mostly) alone in maintaining a more restrained, guarded approach to the imminent new Star Wars relaunch.
But it’s getting harder and harder to do that as more and more new footage emerges.

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!!
