The trailer is now available on the internet. It actually looks like it won't suck, which is good. There is no Jar Jar Binks to be found, and they'll finally be some space action it seems. Also, Chewie is back, there looks to be more Yoda-fighting goodness, and there are some recognizable ships.

Link. You need quicktime for it.

Thoughts?

Even though the first two were disappointing, I'll still probably see this one, mostly because I like Samuel L. Jackson. i'm a serial-killer :)

Too bad Lucas is the director.

Oh, I'll see your movie, George. I will see it and say bad things about it on the internet. You'll get my money, but not my respect, which we all know is what you really want.

Episode I looked like it wouldn't suck and then it did suck.

Episode II looked like it'd be loaded with not sucking, and it sucked.

Episode III looks exactly the opposite of something that looks like it won't suck but then sucks.

My bet is that it sucks. And I'll sit through every suck ass minute just so I can finally get closure on this Star Wars journey and can finally turn my back on it and never fucking revisit it again. Not even the old ones, I'm fucking sick of those too and I grew out of them years ago. Also I'm using my free pass to regal cinemas so I don't put any more money into Lucas's pockets because I wish he was bankrupt or dead. Either one is fine.

The movie looks so lame it makes me want to cry. Lucas is (surprise, surprise) focusing entirely too much on making the lightsabers pretty and not enough on the plot. This just looks... cheesy. The original Star Wars were groundbreaking. This is just becoming a cash cow.

And I'll still have to go to see it because like Smokey said I need closure MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS

The fact that Darth Vader and other classic characters appear means it will probably be better than I and II, which is not saying much.

If Jar Jar died, I'd consider forgiving Lucas for the complete sullying of my childhood.

Lucas should have started with Episode III and worked backwards to Episode I.

At least then, people could connect with characters they already know well, rather then having to meet an entirely new crew that had a high chance of sucking (compared to the classic characters of IV-VI).

It wouldn't have been terribly hard to match quality characters with a new set, Lucas just didn't try because he knew if it had "STAR WARS" in the title idiots like us would see it whether it sucked or not.

This will be better:

The...plot...?

The original Star Wars were groundbreaking... because of the effects (ie. pretty lightsabres!), not because of the groundbreaking plot thread of OMG GOOD VS. EVIL.

Come on people, you act like any of the Star Wars movies had good scripts. They didn't. The actors helped the first set, but it was mostly the novelty of the films that made them so memorable and groundbreaking. This is why Industrial Light and Magic is a huge firm, and George Lucas, Scriptwriter is not.

Whateva, I still like the movies. I just don't pretend like they were ever anything more than eye candy.

Yeah, i love the scenery, all the space ships, the universe, and the multitude of races.

I didn't like episode 1 super muc, but i thought the clone wars was a really good movie.

I love the whole depth of the star wars universe, so forgive me if i wont join y'all in your wailing song.

No, if the Star Wars novelty does not wear off for you when you grow up...you are a little baby nerd. That's the end of it, there's no way out.

The novelty will wear off guys, I promise. Not that I don't appreciate the films for what they were to me when I was a kid...but I wouldn't want to sit though them again at this point.

Of course...I know them pretty much by heart.

Star Wars isn't an epic. Epics don't have Ewoks in them.

Also plenty of people are exactly the same as other people.

I'd like to point out that the Ewoks had a point beyond being fuzzy and cute.

If you read between the lines, you notice they took atrocious losses fighting the Imperials, yet fought they did, and eventually won. Lucas had a message in there in beyond the fur and "yub yubs".
