My mind keeps wanting to disbelieve that I'm actually seeing Han Solo and Leia on the screen again.

After the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer premiered during halftime of the Giants vs. the Eagles Monday night, my mind was pretty much ruminating on it all night. I did manage to score some tickets for me and some friends at the first IMAX showing. The Fandango website crashed multiple times, and I heard that the volume of ticket sales was 8 times that of the previous record holder, a.k.a. The Hunger Games. Early predictions are saying that this Star Wars movie is going to be the biggest movie the world has ever seen. Yes, it'll supposedly be the one that dethrones Titanic and Avatar. And I, like everyone else, is wondering how Luke Skywalker plays in all of this. I'm wondering (too) why Leia looks so sad in the screen grab below:
This is gonna be a long two months to have to wait. I gotta say though that my mind keeps wanting to disbelieve that I'm actually seeing Han Solo and Leia on the screen again. It's like Han Solo overload. This is the most "epic" play of a nostalgia card I have ever seen. Well done Disney.

  2. My mind wishes she still looked good.
    Excited about the movie but it is in danger of being over-hyped right now.

  3. I find all the hype over this interesting. I've enjoyed the Star Wars movies but for me they aren't the religion some people have made them out to be.

  4. Yay! I'm just glad they got Harrison Ford back on the wagon after he said he'd NEVER play that character again.

  7. I can't wait! I just wish Leia didn't look so worried. I think she looks great too other than the sad face.

  8. The Leia scene is so short, it could be anything. Or just a flicker of an emotion in a scene that's about something else entirely. They definitely didn't give a lot away in the trailer--something that they seem to do a lot these days.

  9. I like that you're so excited about the movie. I hope that it's as good as you want it to be and that Hans Solo is in a whole lotta scenes.
