I can’t even lie. When I saw this trailer I started to get a chill. A very familiar feeling that I used to get as a kid every time another addition to the first trilogy was nearing release. You see, I grew up on Star Wars. Had the toys, bed-sheets, play-sets etc. In fact, the Star Wars was the movie that got me into movies in the first place. The first one was released in 1977. I was 8 years old and Star Wars was only the third movie I had ever seen. When I saw that Star Destroyer come across the screen, I was instantly captivated. I loved all three movies. Completely bought into the lore. Read the books. All of it.
When I got older I begin to get into Star Trek, which I loved for completely different reasons. And I have to say…I wasn’t all of that impressed with the prequels. They just didn’t give me that feel that I remembered when I was a kid. So to feel it again, even if it’s only for a brief moment with this trailer, brings back all of the memories. I’ve got my fingers crossed that the movie lives up to it.
