Star Wars: The Hype is Real

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

By now, you’ve all seen the new Star Wars trailer.  We think it’s simply amazing how a trailer could deliver bits of footage from the movie, yet hardly divulge the plot.  It inspires fans of all ages to speculate on the story and make them want to see this movie now.  From what we’ve seen, tickets to opening night are selling out and the movie isn’t due until December 18th!  A few days prior, the official movie poster was released.


Where’s Luke Skywalker?  Is he dead?  Did he switch over to the Dark Side?  Is he the new Yoda, living in exile somewhere?  In the previous trailer, we saw what we could assume is Luke’s hand, resting on R2-D2. We’ve noticed that either someone is being pursued or there’s an epic airship battle going on.  It’s hard to fathom the amount of action packed into this movie.  What we really want to know is who are the new red lightsaber wielders.  Secondly, who’s commanding the Storm Troopers in the following shot.

These Stroom Troopers look polished and new, like an Apple product.

Like many of you, Nerd Swole was left wondering, where is Luke Skywalker?  We’ve heard his voice in the previous trailer and assume he’s the cloaked figure putting his hand on R-2 D-2.

Perhaps Han Solo plays an integral part to the plot since we see him multiple times.  He’s probably going to be the direct connection to the original trilogy and frequently piloting the Millennium Falcon  Blink, and you’ll miss Princess Leia in his arms.

Of course, no Star Wars movie is complete without an epic lightsaber battle. This looks rather promising.
