Darlings, the twittersphere is currently in the throes of a massive, communal, worldwide nerdmoistening because this happened:
And nerds all over the world wept.
Jesus. Would you look at that.
As for our reaction to it? As in so many things, Sally Draper speaks for us:
Excuse us while we change our pants. Technically, on paper, we’re wise and experienced enough to not judge a film -especially a thirty-years-later sequel to a classic trilogy – on one fantastic trailer. BUT SWEET MOTHER OF PEARL THAT LOOKS SO FREAKING GOOD. The production design alone has us salivating – and unlike the prequel films, it all looks very much like the universe the original trilogy took place in. Love the new stormtrooper togs.
Please Mr. Jesus or Santa Claus or whoever’s in charge of granting wishes: Let there be no Jar Jar in this one.
Are we bad for momentarily thinking a hydraulic door was going to come crashing down on Han Solo after that line?
