It’s Black Friday. But you can forget the whole shopping like rabid dogs attitude. The Black in “Black Friday” has nothing to do with 90% off tablets or BOGO Free sales on Christmas Sweaters. Uh uh. It really stands for dark… as in Dark Side!
Wooo! Star Wars: Episode 7, now called Star Wars: The Force Awakens has its first official trailer. And while we know next to nothing about the story, it still has to send at least a few shivers down your spine as you see droids, Stormtroopers, new lightsabers and the return of an old friend (i.e. the Falcon!). Not to mention music that defines an entire universe.
Take a look at The Force Awakens trailer:
Well, there’s this guy, who seems to be a Stormtrooper. Clearly he’s on Tattoine and sweating cause it’s so hot. But I thought all Stormtroopers were supposed to be clones. Is he working for the Empire (which apparently isn’t dead?), now with the Rebellion?
This one looks like a cross between a landspeeder and a scout bike they used on Endor in Return of the Jedi. And the woman riding it looked an awful lot like Padme.
You can’t have a new Star Wars film without a new lightsaber, right? I gotta admit this battle sword-type lightsaber does look pretty awesome. But I’m not too clear on what those mini sabers coming out the side can do. Wouldn’t they be more dangerous to the guy wielding it than anyone he’se fighting?
Hard to believe it’s only one year away! With so many incredible Marvel Movies (Avengers 2!!!) and a new Star Wars film, 2015 is going to be a monster one at the movies.
May the Force Be With You!

So cool to read this after you’ve seen the movie! I can’t wait for Episode 8!
My son is the biggest Star Wars fan! In fact, my whole family loves it. It would be so nice to go see it as a family!
I know my brother is getting excited! He lives for this stuff!
My son and husband are big fans of Star Wars. I will have to show them this…….if they haven’t already seen it. 🙂
My son absolutely loves Star Wars. I bet he would love this one too!
my sons and grandsons want to see this ,,not me ,but they love anything to do with star wars
Traditionally I rewatch everything prior to the new movie. I will love to see this, The Woman in Black 2, and Insidious Chapter 3!!!^_^
That stormtrooper in the beginning looks like he is running from somebody or something.
So exciting! Star Wars was one of the first movies I saw without my parents.
The teaser looks good. I don’t want to see another thing until the movie is out. I really don’t. But of course I will gobble up every bit of content that comes out.
SO EXCITED! JJ Abrams looks like he’s doing an excellent job. Hopefully, no Jar-Jar lookalikes this time around…
I want more trailers for this movie already! Cannot wait to see it next year! ;D
The lightsaber is called a crossguard lightsaber. It is part of the Star Wars lore, not new. It actually prevents what happened to Luke’s hand.
I never would have guessed! Huh, I get how it would work, but I still imagine getting nicked by that all the time.
Very excited to see a new Star Wars movie with my son. Looks like it’s going to be great!
this is is awesome. big fan of star wars!
Looks really cool! Can’t wait!
i am ready for this–thanks for sharing
I didn’t even think that about the new light saber, great observation! Yeah, I really don’t see how they would wield it without nicking themselves. Can’t wait to see this one!
I honestly was not excited for this movie before the trailer, but seeing it brought back the childlike wonder that I felt from the old movies. 2015 is looking to be a great year for movies!
big fan of star wars!
Wahoo! My 3 boys are excited!
This is going to be so cool!! It’s been far too long since a new Star Wars movie came out =(
The force is strong with this one.
Looking forward to seeing this movie! Thanks for sharing 🙂
OH MAN I CAN’T WAIT!!! I’M SO EXCITED!!!
my son and his son are huge fans of star wars,,they would love this
Our whole family loves Star Wars! We can’t wait!!! I agree about the new light saber – those shorter parts might be dangerous. Although, it reminded me of a medieval sword.
So glad to see Star Wars again. This is going to be an awesome movie
I can’t wait! I’ve always loved Star Wars. Only thing I want to point out, is that not all Stormtroopers are clones. They were clones in the Clone Wars (hence the name) but when Jango Fett died, they had no one to clone, so the Empire started taking people from everywhere. (This is referenced in A New Hope when Luke was talking about joining the Academy for the Empire)
it looks like it might be a bit scary for our 6 year old,but my husband and i are excited!! I hope the dark side is scary!
Anyone intersted in the breakdown of the trailer, IGN posted a video on YouTube under Theater Rewind that explains everyscene in the trailer.
Hope they release more, our teens can not wait till it comes out. Going to be a BIG hit!!!
I’m pretty excited for the movie, but the trailer was just too vague for me to understand what the movie’s about.
I can’t wait to see this movie!
Yesterday I was at the book store and my husband and another guy were talking about this trailer and how it sucked. But I honestly thought it was great.I cannot wait to see the movie!
How are we supposed to wait a year for this! It looks amazing!
It was surreal watching the trailer since we have waited so long for it. Im with you about the stormtrooper he kinda reminded me of the guy from spacebalks. As for the lightsaber im not crazy about it unless it blocks from getting your hand cut off as soneone else points out. Anyway 2015 cant get here soon enough!!
I had the same thought about the lightsaber! The reason for that piece on a sword is to protect your hand while fighting, but this seems like a recipe for accidentally chopping some part of yourself off during battle. But so excited for this movie!
I’m really excited for the next installment in the series. I know there’s mixed opinions on the trailer and the work of JJ Abrams, but I have a lot of optimism about this next episode. You know JJ doesn’t want the reaction to be like that of the prequels, so I think he’s going to make sure it’s awesome.
my inner nerd girl just squealed. I remember seeing Star Wars in the theater when it first came out–I was then HOOKED. It started my love of Star Wars and everything Sci-fi-ish! That new light saber is awesome and I can’t wait to see how it’s used lol TY FOR SHARING!!
I tell you that this movie looks so thrilling and coming out next year! It will be great to see all the gang and see what they are up too. I bet the special affects are great!
The new light-saber looks rad, seems like a good defense against getting your hand chopped off haha.
It looks alright.
Oh, this is definitely on my watch list. Critics may carry on but I am a fan of the light saber hilt.
That light saber is awesome! Can’t wait to see it, love all the star wars movies.
Star Wars movies are awesome. I have watched all six episodes. My favorite is Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Extremely excited for this one!
I am very excited about this…..!!! Can’t wait
I have fond memories of Star Wars. The first movie I remember watching in theaters was Return of The Jedi as a kid. I was giddy today like that day. Thanks J.J. Abrams and Disney!
It would send some shivers to my grandson who is an avid Star Wars fan. I can’t wait for him to see the trailer.
Im only a little excited about this one, and I am a huge fan!
