Star Wars: The Force Awakens Teaser Is… Eh

JJ Abrams behind the scenes Star Wars Force Awakens

So, you’ve probably already seen it.  No?  Well, here is today’s hot-outta-the-oven teaser for the new Star Wars movie coming next year…

With J.J. Abrams at the head, I already wasn’t too interested, and this teaser has done nothing to change that.  It really doesn’t look very good, to me: the guy popping up in the beginning (as someone on Reddit mentioned) makes it feel like a parody trailer, the computer graphics are strong.. and obvious, and the camerawork feels modern and lame.

Folks are losing their minds over this teaser, though (their MINDS, I tells ya!), but I hope, for their sake, that it’s not another Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.  I remember when the trailers hit for that movie, and I had a chat with a couple of my friends who were really excited by it.  Their nostalgic hope made them look at the trailer differently than I did.  They didn’t see the bad CGI that I saw or signs of the other potential missteps that were eventually revealed when the final movie came out and disappointed the crap out of people.  No, they were just excited to have another Indiana Jones movie, and I sure hope that this Star Wars venture isn’t going to play out the same way.  Who knows, though… people tend to like this Abrams guy’s work, so it may only be a minority that are disappointed.  I personally don’t expect to love this movie (though I’d happily accept that surprise), but I’m more concerned about those who think they will… and then don’t.  To them, I say… may the Force be with you.

    I just thought it was odd that we didn’t see any of the original cast. Obviously the emphasis is on the new characters, since I’m guessing the plan is to have these new characters carry the series on (essentially making this film the passing of the torch) But it feels odd to have stormtroopers in a movie AFTER Return of the Jedi. It’s kind of like if World War 2 ended and then the Nazis just sort of stuck around anyway. Or even worse, we started using all the Nazi equipment and never got rid of the swastikas because we thought they looked cool. It honestly looks like the greatest fan film ever made.
