There Are No Brakes on the Hype Train (The Force Awakens Trailer Reaction)

Soooo, the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer looks pretty exciting.

First impression is: What? Were all of the Rebellion’s victories in the previous movies for nothing? People seem to have either forgotten what happened at the Battle of Endor or they’re too far out in the boonies to have noticed. Or maybe killing the Emperor and destroying the newer Death Star wasn’t enough to topple the Empire?

Also, although we did get Han and Leia, we didn’t see any Luke Skywalker (at least I didn’t, feel free to correct me if I missed him). What’s the deal with that? Could Luke’s absence be a plot point? Finn is shown about to throw down in a lightsaber duel with Kylo Ren so I presume someone taught him some fencing. Either that, or it’s going to be an incredibly short fight…

The spaceship battle scenes look totally rad though! In fact, pretty much anything involving a spaceship looked pretty damn awesome to me.

I could use a cigarette and a nap after that nergasm. Here’s hoping we don’t have another Phantom Menace on our hands…
