New Star Wars Trailer Out Today

The first teaser for the first standalone Star Wars movie was released today. It looks much better than I was expected, but I’m pretty skeptical about the plan to treat Star Wars movies like Marvel movies and release one or more every year. It might dilute the impact of the main series and might not fit in so well with the way the franchise has always been run.

Star Wars Premier Today

The new Star Wars movie is premiering today in most countries around the world. It’s actually getting very good reviews (90+% on Rotten Tomatoes). It was only a few¬†years ago that the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney happened and it was unexpectedly announced that a sequel trilogy would be made, after many years of Lucas insisting that not only was that not happening but also that it was never meant to happen anyway.

New Star Wars Trailer Out!

The trailer for the new Star Wars trailer is out now. You can find it on Youtube here. My judgment is: it looks amazing. As a trailer, it is one of the best I’ve seen in recent years for this kind of movie. It give a brief glimpse at the main characters, so we get a bit of a feel for who they are. There are some action scenes, which seem to have nearly-completed special effects (rushed effects jobs for trailers seem to be quite common now). There are also just small hints at the story, so we actually learn very little about the plot (unlike, for example, Prometheus).
