I think it's a good start, could've been worse, for instance:

"Star Wars: The Force of Clay Aiken"

For part 8, maybe "Return of the Sith (or Empire or Emperor)" or maybe "The Power of the Dark Side" since that's when things go bad, if it follows the formula of the other two trilogies.

And for part 9, "The Way of the Jedi" (just 'cuz I like Bruce Lee, plus, let's face it, the Jedi are going to win in that one).

Of course, they could always roll with "Star Wars: Dark Knight of the Jedi", "Star Wars: Avatar", or "Star Wars: The Jedi Avengers" just to be safe...

I'm surprised it was not called Mickey's Space Adventure.

According to the new trailer it's coming out in December 2015, it's going to be a long wait.

Just saw the teaser....
Didn't want to make me ask for more at all!

I'll wait until a full trailer is released to pass judgement.

Teaser trailer was pretty cool. I liked seeing the X-Wings skimming the surface of the water and of course, the good ol' Falcon.

I thought the teaser was a fake?

No it's the real thing, supposed to rally up the fans. Not being a fan, I thought it was just annoyingly repetitive of the other six movies.

Star Wars just doesn't even belong to the regular universe of criticism any more, if the proper intention of reviews of film as art is to, in effect, help others to determine what might be the best use of their time, that is to say, which art one should spend their finite and therefore precious attention on.

An excellent movie review, particularly one that changes minds, or influences someone to see what they would not have seen, or not see what they would have, or convinces someone they did not see what they thought they saw, is itself an art form. But with Star Wars, that all goes out the window.

The people who are as anxious as I am to see the new movies will generally watch them repeatedly, and some percentage of the public that doesn't really keep up with Star Wars (people who haven't even seen all six movies!) will see the movie just as a result of the relentless marketing of it that will be happening for a solid year, starting a few weeks from now. But perhaps the most reliable audience are those who are already certain this new movie won't be good. They will be attending front and center, just to see how bad it is, and then remind everyone they told us so... but even they'll buy tickets to it.

One billion dollars in US grosses for this one, and that's if its lousy. I think it will be higher than that if it's good. The real question is, will that be enough to beat Avengers 2 by then?

Toy Story 4 on the way. 5+ Star Wars movies, 20 Marvel Movies. What if they do a "Frozen" sequel? What would that make? It's a good time to be Mickey Mouse, all right. Those two big buttons on his red shorts must be made of gold by now.

So I get that you are a true Star Wars fan CPF and I have already said that I am not. I did see all three of the original trilogy, loved the first two, hated the third. I also saw most of the second trilogy, fast forwarded a lot though. In my defense it was all on rented DVD, but I did cave in to the hype enough to try to watch it. First was passable, the rest was not, but in for a dollar in for a pound as they say. Not this next time.

Your statement above is probably true, but what does it really say about people? That they will pay to watch anything, even if it's awful, just to say that they watched it? Don't worry, I won't be that one who says I told you so. I saw the trailer by accident, that's as close as I'm getting this time. If the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result, than I'm not insane. Like Sheldon, my mother had me tested, and this is just not for me. Big Grin

Yes, in general, but I do acknowledge your (and some others, certainly) ability to rise above that.

Anyway, for our purposes as card collectors, it may as well be Star Wars, Schmar Wars, as movies go. The most important thing about the continuation of this series is that it will help non-sport cards remain a "thing" for another 10 years at least as Topps is certain to make and sell a lot of Star Wars related cards in the span, the profits for which will hopefully will go back into the company and enable them to make sets that might not have been able to before without the infusion of the new Star Wars cash.

Hooray, our life's work (well, hobby, anyway) is not obsolete......................yet! Big Grin
