The new teaser trailer for Star Wars broke today. Shot by J.J. Abrams, I'm not lying when I say it blew my mind. Admittedly, I've been fooled before. I geeked out just as much over the trailer for the Phantom Menace but I have hope.
Star Wars holds a special place in my heart. I remember vividly being taken to the cinema when I was seven by my dad. We went to Leicester Square (at night no less) with my sister, grandmother, and my best friend at the time, a boy called Stephen. Afterwards he and I had mock lightsabre fights while we waited to go home.
I went and saw it another three times that summer as it took over my life. I was lucky that my family indulged me and my obsession. To think I had to wait three years before no 2 came out!
The prequels were crap and a great case study in not letting technology overrule a good story but here's hoping that these rock and once more Star Wars excites the world. I can't wait for my son to be old enough to see these films.
And this bad guy looks awesome! Roll on Christmas 2015.
