Finally, after many months of no news, we finally have something to look at!
First, the poster. I like it, but I also doubt they would've done anything with it I wouldn't have liked. It fits the same style as the other posters, and while our favorite characters are clearly not the main characters, at least they are next to each other, which I will take as a good sign. The lack of Luke is interesting, to say the least. But since Luke really isn't a main reason I want to see this movie, I'm not really concerned about that. Though I'm sure there are lots and lots of irate Luke fans out there. I would also guess there is some significance to the fact that Rey's weapon is parallel up against Kylo Ren's lightsaber, but I'm sure we will eventually learn why that is not a coincidence.
And the new trailer!!!! What else can we even say. I am writing this fast because I want to get it posted so we can start talking, but at least now from the trailer we know that Han and Leia at least hug in it. So, there is that. AAAAHHHHH!!!!! What does it all mean?!?!
Look at them!!!
And, to top of the night, I have tickets to a show at 7pm on December 17th!!! That was incredibly stressful. Online sales were a mess, Fandango was crashing, everything was moving incredibly slowly, and the theater I wanted to get the tickets from was entirely not working. So I had to broaden my search a bit. I did not get my first choice theater, but I do have tickets to a show at 7pm. And actually I also have tickets to a show at 10pm. During the stressful ticket buying process, my movie buddies and I were conversing and trying to figure out what to do, so we got those too while we were worried we might not be able to get any at all. Phew, that was the last thing I was worried about, and now we just have to wait. And of course show up early enough that we can get good seats and sit near each other.
And another edit, to add this:
