A bit of an odd choice. I wonder what they mean by that...

Thanks to whomever made this graphic, the title is forever going to to be Star The Force Awakens Wars to me.

Joking aside, I love how some people assume Episode VII is solely down to Disney, when it was George Lucas who went back on his word and did the prep work for it prior to his selling out.

I thought that the Phantom Menace was the second worst Star Wars, but I do find the title quite catchy.

It's vague and generic, but I don't mind it. It's hard to come up with an original name for a Star Wars story unless it's something pulpy like Attack of the Clones.

Well...um....hmmmm. I dont know.... guess ill have to wait and see more. Truly is a strange age when you have a trailer for a trailer. That thumbnail with the rebel pilot...it looks pretty awesome, ima try my hand at texturing something similiar.

Edit: That design for the sith saber seems pretty um..well at least to me it seems kinda like...why have those handle thingys? Lol what benefit does those two mini saber things have? I can see the influence from medavil swords with that handle, but wouldnt you be more prone to getting your fingers cut off that way? It looks cool dont get me wrong but for some reason it bothers me :p

I like what I see. It's actually nice that almost everything is just slightly newer versions of designs from the OT. A new X-wing, new stormtroopers, new TIE fighters, new Millenium Falcon, etc. It gives me hope that the focus will be on a new, exciting expansion upon what we know and love, rather than some largely unrecognizable universe with an occasional stroll down nostalgia lane.

Or I could be totally wrong, and the film could end up being one long, gratuitous trek down the nostalgia highway.

It kind of reminds me of those screen shots you had taken for cado nemodia. The cinematogragphy for now looks visually interesting. That can be said for all star wars films I believe during thier respective times.
I can for sure appreciate that he isnt using modern digital techniques and using something more akin to the OT.

Me too. I was just watching with a huge grin on my face until that part, and then I was like "NO WAAAAAY!"

I'm pretty darn excited about this movie (and for future trailers)!

Ooh, one really tiny detail I just noticed on re-watching that I loved: the Millennium Falcon has a new radar dish!
