Really excited. It's far too long before it comes out.  >:(

Yes, it's bad enough when people start talking a long time before the actual event, but official trailers and all a full 8 months before the release date, is awful!!!

Yeah it sucks. Especially once the spoilers start to appear. I don't really mind being spoilered, but it makes the wait even harder.

Thank you for posting the trailer!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I'm trying to not know that much about this, but seeing Han at the end just made me say: "Holy F@ck!"
Please please please have a really good script, not just great special effects and loud action.

The ending with Solo and Chewbacca...  ;D  ;D  ;D

I was most excited about Jurassic World this year. Now consider me most excited about Star Wars. What I love about the trailer is that it is so evocative of the original trilogy not the over CGI bloated prequels.

Good article in Time magazine this week quotes from actors, how JJAbrams is trying to recreate the feel of the original trilogy. Kept having to skips spoilery stuff. But the end paragraphs ar pretty good, talking about the hope fans have for this movie.

I don't know how I'm going to avoid hearing too much before I see it Dec 27.

Tried to find a link, but subscribers only. May try to cheat a bit tomorrow.

And listen up, everyone. Even your reaction to the movie (meh or yeah) will be spoilery for me. I may just have to stay off the forum from 12/18 to 12/27.

Please do!  ;D

Unacceptable. Just avoid this thread - I'm sure we can all make sure we don't mention them whatsoever outside here.  ;)
