My daughters are currently 4 and 2 years old. They are not allowed to see any Star Wars films. Obviously, because they are too young. But also because Star Wars is too important to me. I am going to insist that they wait to see the movies until they can understand why I love them so much. I know girls don’t really care about Star Wars like boys do. I get that. My wife likes Star Wars. She stood in line for Episode 3 with me. Because I made her. But she likes seeing them. But outside of wanting to see popular movies, I don’t thing she REALLY cares. They MATTER to me. It’s still a debate on when I will let them see them. I’ve got some time.
The trailer for Episode 7 was released on Friday. It was only 88 seconds long, and really did nothing to give away any story. My friend Ryan who loves Star Wars more than I do refuses to see anything before 12/18/15. That’s the release date. I can’t. I need to know stuff. I had to watch it. Even though I knew it wouldn’t show much.
To say it didn’t show much would be an understatement. I don’t really know what I was expecting in 88 seconds. But I was hoping for more. The only part I enjoyed was seeing the Falcon again. Other than that, eh. See for yourself below, but keep your expectations low. I will still be there one of the first days. Hopefully opening night. Depends on if Ryan goes with me or not. Otherwise, $5 Tuesday. I gotta keep it cheap!! But so far, I’ve got a year to get myself ready for what may not be the best film of the saga. That will always be Empire.
