OK it’s official. Any ability to hold back my excitement about the latest Star Wars film has now completely failed. I know I had reservations that the film’s won’t do the original ones justice, I wasn’t convinced that we don’t need to catch up with Han, Leia and Luke after so many years have passed and I certainly wasn’t sold on the premise that the world needed to see another Star Wars film ever again after the prequels. But all of my reservations have been swept aside now and I (perhaps foolishly) have fully committed to the excitement which has been brewing inside me for the last few months.
After having seen the latest trailer my childhood was so strongly evoked by the music, the familiar sights, the appearance of old friends… I’m not going to say any more on the off chance that you haven’t yet seen the trailer. Watch it. Watch it now. It’s right below this paragraph so drop what you’re doing and hit play and then I’ll see you in the theaters in December.
Here’s the trailer:
