Like… well, like kazillions and kazillions of other people, I’ve been excitedly following all the updates and news about the upcoming movie Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens. I saw the teaser trailers for it back when they were released, but I wanted to wait until A) a longer trailer had been released and B) the release date was closer.
OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THIS MOVIE. I may actually end up writing another post or two between now and the release date, simply because I am SO EXCITED for this movie. (Actually, I WILL do that – if only to make sure that this post doesn’t get out of hand in terms of length, because I have soooo many thoughts and so much excitement for The Force Awakens. So, yeah.)
Anyway, I’m so glad I decided to wait until this trailer was released, because I looooove it! The visuals are just amazing, and oh my god… I am so excited to FEAST MY EYES UPON ALL THE GLORIOUS SCI FI DETAILS AND DESIGN. I love fantasy/science fiction movies and TV shows because they often have really good set design and costuming and stuff!
ANYWAY. TIME FOR THE REACTION-Y PART OF THIS POST WHICH I’M SURE IS WHAT YOU’RE ALL WAITING FOR.
P.S. You can find my earlier film trailer reaction posts here.

…I have said “oh my god” (or some variation thereof) far too many times in this post, but I don’t even care. I AM SO EXCITED. (That’s another word I’ve used too often in this post.)
I’m excited to meet all the new characters, and I’m happy that some of the old (literally!) ones will be back, and I can’t wait to see all the new planets and star systems, and I’m curious about what Luke’s role will be, and AHHH I’M SO EXCITED BECAUSE GWENDOLINE CHRISTIE AND LUPITA NYONG’O ARE IN THIS MOVIE.
And I’m especially excited about how John Williams returned to compose the film score!
My brother has already bought the tickets – we’re going to see it the weekend before Thanksgiving, just a few days after I get back home. Oodles of popcorn will be consumed, and I’ll have SO MANY EMOTIONS, and basically… GAH. WHEN I THINK ABOUT THIS MOVIE I FEEL ALL GIDDY AND WONDERFUL. I FEEL LIKE AN EXCITED LITTLE KID.
