Star Wars: The Force Awakens

It's only been a couple days since the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted, but everyone is still talking about it (sorry to all you people who don't care about a galaxy far, far away). With the latest installment of the sci-fi saga, creator and eventual destroyer George Lucas doesn't have his grubby little paws involved creatively now, but that hasn't stopped the unveiling of a "Special Edition" of the Episode VII teaser. Now the trailer features all the stuff that was missing the first time around like dewbacks, Temuera Morrison, and way more TIE Fighters. We don't want to spoil everything, so just watch!

Here's the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Special Edition trailer from Michael Shanks:

And as a bonus here's a LEGO version of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer from Snooperking:

Watch the original Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer again and again right here.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, continuing the beloved original trilogy about Luke, Leia, Han & Chewie that ended in 1983, is directed by J.J. Abrams, of the films Mission: Impossible 3, Star Trek, Super 8 and Star Trek Into Darkness. The screenplay is written by Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Return of the Jedi, The Big Chill, The Bodyguard) and J.J. Abrams, with Kathleen Kennedy from Lucasfilm producing. This debut is the beginning of a brand new saga, with another trilogy planned for this storyline, not to mention other standalone movies in this universe. Disney, after acquiring Lucasfilm, will release Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters worldwide on December 18th, 2015.

Don't be a dick Ethan. Just because you didn't like the prequels, doesn't mean they were bad, and doesn't mean that Lucas "destroyed" what he created with the first trilogy by releasing prequels that people didn't like. It's his universe, and he can do what he likes. Try to show a little more respect, huh?

No he can't do what he likes. People paid money to watch those movies, so If Lucas chose to feed his audience senseless toy commercials instead of actual films, then that audience has a right to complain! Sorry, but it is actually POSSIBLE to make entertaining movies so why do people continue to defend the crap ones?

For the same reason people like you continue to attack them? The movies WERE entertaining. Just because you didn't personally like them, doesn't give you the right to attack them. No one MADE you pay money to watch them. There's no such thing as a perfect anything - movie, TV show, book...anything creative is subject to "criticism" by people, but all art is subjective. There are plenty of people in the world who enjoyed the prequels just as much as they enjoyed the originals, and I'm sure there are plenty of people who didn't watch the originals until after the prequels came out that don't like the originals. You're entitled to your opinion, but a top being so small minded and trying to foist it, whether good or bad, on someone else.

I don't think you're wrong, exactly, but I'd like to offer some counterpoints: - I would argue that once a film is released, it's no longer tied to the artist's imagination. There now exists a valid public connection to the film, regardless of the artist's original intentions. George Lucas is the canon-author of Star Wars, but it also belongs to all of us who have made a connection with it. If the fans feel that new additions ruin their original connection, then I think that's a valid complaint. - That the prequels are bad is such a dominant opinion that talking about them being bad without referring to your own opinion seems kind of ok to me. Anyone defending them can still stand up to that if they want. - Art may be subjective and there's no arguing for preference, but the difference between top films and worst films isn't arbitrary either. We generally agree that The Godfather is a better movie than Green Lantern and decent arguments can be formed to support that statement. The prequels, too, have suffered through valid criticism. (See for instance Belated Media's alternate story ideas or Plinkett's strange but apt reviews of them) - It's not entirely fair to say "No one made you pay money to watch them". There's a powerful incentive for people to watch sequels of films they loved. If the trailers don't look very good, you'll still be inclined to give it the benefit of the doubt. Or you just go see it because you can't help yourself to see what has become of the franchise you had such a loving connection with. If it feels like the studio is just cashing in on your connection, then I again think that's a fair complaint.

They were about as entertaining as watching Congress pass a bill on trade reform....I believe there's a scene where they do that in one of those movies....

Well....it WAS his universe anyway. Its like someone buying a Ferrari, then intentionally crashing it into a brick wall. Yeah it was his, but damn, man, why ruin it like that? So thank god that someone bought it from him and will be (hopefully) treating it like it deserves to be treated. "Destroyed" is a matter of opinion, as is the idea of them being "entertaining". Lucas made massive mistakes with the prequel trilogy, mistakes that are difficult to respect. I love how you try shutting down the dude below by complaining about his small mind while AT THE SAME TIME saying that all art is subjective. I'll wait here while you figure that one out.

That parody is hilarious, but the ultimate touch would be a Jar Jar appearance.

Calling the teaser you should have used "special edition" is silly non-sense.
