Hey, Earth!  Did you guys know that there was a new Star Wars coming out?  Well there is!  In fact, there will be a new Star Wars film every year from now on until you’re dead.  Hope you like Star Wars! By 2050 we’ll all be talking about how sick to death we are of lightsabers and The Force and stupid R2-D2’s incessant beeping.  But not today.  Today we are on the cusp of the first new Star Wars film in 10 years and possibly the first good Star Wars film since before I was born…and I’m old as shit.

Anyway, here’s the trailer for the new Star Wars movie.  There’s honestly not too much to say about this one. It’s pretty awesome.  In traditional JJ Abrams Mystery Box fashion, we’re less than 2 months away from the release of this movie and we still have no idea what it’s actually about.  This trailer doesn’t really give us any more information on that front, but it has lightsabers and X-wings and shit so we all love it.  J.J. gives the people what they want. I’m kinda loving the fact that the events of the first trilogy are as much a mythology to to characters of the film as they are to us in the real world. I hope the whole movie follows through on that point.

What did you guys think?  Are you happy with the trailer?  Do you wish that it would have shown a little more of the plot of the movie?  Where the hell is wrinkly old Luke Skywalker? Let us know in the comments below.  

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens on Thursday, December 17th.  If you haven’t already bought tickets yet you probably won’t get to see it til 2016.
