So this weekend is the Star Wars Celebration out in Anaheim California. As an attendee of both Celebration V and Celebration VI that were in Orlando over the last few years, I can guarantee that everyone out there is having a blast… especially with what will undoubtedly be a plethora of information regarding Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
Sure enough… there’s already a new teaser trailer seen there first and now out on the internet…
That? One hell of a trailer. Narrated by Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker and closing with a shot of Harrison Ford as Han Solo with Peter Mayhew as Chewbecca beside him just puts this thing over the top.
The excitement is definitely building towards the December release. Undoubtedly over the weekend more information is going to be released and disseminated, but the most interesting bit that I saw was when iO9 revealed the Empire has a new name.
The First Order.
I have to admit… that is a pretty ominous sounding name. Im also feeling the look of the new Stormtroopers. There’s a sleekness to them now that lends the films to the idea of progress in the area of technological development.
So while I still have some reservations… I have to admit that I’m starting to get a bit excited for Episode VII and the prospect of an amazing continuation for the Star Wars saga.
