I'm especially glad that Drew Struzan's artwork got some more deserved attention now.

His talent is sorely missed in todays movie-poster world.

Hmm, how to break this...

It's not Drew's work.

Ouch. I thought I read he went out of retirement to make the posters for this new Star Wars? Or was that only true for those other posters?
Has a Drew Struzan vibe to it though.

Ugh. I've said this before and I'll say it again, you can't make new, fresh original epics because someone asks you too. Creativity isn't a skill. Eventually, like Jedi, you're forced to rehash the same story elements, but twist them a bit. In Jedi we had an incomplete, bigger Death Star. Here we have a planet converted into a death star. In the next film we'll have a squadron of death stars etc etc.

Let's maybe not judge the movie until we see it? Maybe?

The thing is, it's completely logical for the empire to pursue new crazy super weapons, even if it is a bit creativity bankrupt.

Star Wars had that problem since the first movie. "How do we create something more menacing than the Death Star?" "Uh, create the Death Star again."

I frankly don't care, at least not yet. I'm excited to watch the film. If it works, it works.

I'm really glad these trailers held off on story details, too. I was too weak to resist them, but I don't regret watching, unlike most trailers nowadays.

If the "good guys" win by blowing up the latest Death Star -- excuse me, Death Planet -- with some torpedoes in a choice spot, I'm out of there.

It's not a coincidence that the best film in the franchise is the one that did not end with the heroes just blowing something up real good. Just because the first movie had a superweapon menace doesn't mean that every installment needs a superweapon menace.

I hope that no one is actually defending this repetitiousness.

Apart from that, the new cast seems no more appealing than did the prequel cast; indeed, less so.

Well, I'm old enough to have seen the originals at the cinema, and I thought the new trailer looks great. In fact I watched with my children at 7am and the look of excitement on their faces was priceless.
