I am just done with all the hype. It actually has made me not care.

It is starting to remind me of the merchandising scene from Spacrballs.

Star Wars ended beautifully. It doesn't need another movie, let alone a spin-off.

I haven't been paying any attention to the hype...I'll probably wait until it comes out on cable to see it...

Last time I got excited, it turned out to be "The Phantom Menace."

Episodes 1-3 were beautiful? Blech.

I'm just excited because Lucas isn't directing. We haven't had a treat like that since Empire Strikes Back.

I'm looking forward to it, though might not be able to swing opening weekend. From all the trailers I've seen, it looks like it'll be pretty cool.

I said ended beautifully. I am speaking in order of events. And not to start a war or anything, but I actually like the prequels.

I will only say of the first 3 that it is quite difficult to go back and tell av story in that fashion. Was not a fan but it was a monumental task. There was no way to make everyone happy. I was bored and annoyed not necessarily in that order. I guess eventually they grew on me but I think had the story started with them it never would have gone to 6 much less 9 movies.

Hsving the Disney viewpoint will be interesting. Though thoroughly annoyed with the hype we will see what happens.

Also I thought that the first 3 ending was beautiful as well. Couldn't wait to end them.

Would you believe I saw the first one, hated it, didn't see any of the others, and have no interest in seeing the new one?

Nevertheless, I hope you folks who like the series have a wonderful experience ...

By first one do you mean The Phantom Menace or A New Hope?

Sorry but most think of "A New Hope" as the first one.

The original trilogy that Lucas wrote included nine episodes for Star Wars, so no ... what you saw in the cinema was never meant to be the "ending" of Star Wars.

When Lucas went to film these, he knew the first three were not as exciting as the next three ... therefore he skipped them and jumped straight into episode four where the action started - people that complain about the first three movies not being as good are obviously exposing themselves as "fake" star wars fan. A true fan knew going to the theater that these episodes were the more boring set-up parts for the original trilogy and would have never expected them to be as good (yet alone better).

The last three episodes were leased to Dark Horse Comics which were published in six comic books ... it has been stated that the Disney movies will not follow Lucas' original script. The comics were set immediately after the destruction of the Death Star while the Disney movies will be set thirty years after that event, but I suspect from the trailers that some of the same story line is still in place.

Whether or not it was the intention is irrelevant. It ended well. The chosen one brought balance to the force as the prophesy stated, and he gave his life to do so. That would be cheapened if it didn't work. And I already said that I like the prequels.

Yea JoeJoe is the ultimate decider of who is s true Star Wars fan LOL.


Bad news. The movies were at least expected to be good and make some sense. But I guess a true Star Wars fan such as yourself wouldn't care if they were any good.

Not liking Jar-Jar Binks or rolling my eyes about mitocholorian makes me a fake fan?
