    It was a bit.. shifty... I mean there was a bit of cringe involved... but i'm gonna be optimistic.

    I mean the effects/adventure aspects look awesome but dunno how i feel about Felicity's character...

    but yeah lets hope it's not boring!

    Probably the least hype inducing teaser I've encountered.

    meh I was expecting something a bit more like Halo ODST. This just looks like star wars without lightsabers

    Doesn't look that great. Seems weird to have all these new characters that are suddenly going to disappear and not even be mentioned in the other films. Also Star Wars has always been about the Skywalker family which makes this film seem like a big tangent to me.

    why are they making this movie and not episode 8 though? or better - why not just put 100% of their funds into episode 8? what even is this new movie? I don't get it - someone explain? it's like, mon mothma's daughter being a pilot or something? who cares about that?

    It actually looks quite good. Better than the steaming pile turds that is The Force Awakens.

    same, especially darth maul
    and not many people know this, but count dooku and mace windu were both trained by yoda- having films where they touch upon things like that would be awesome. having a film talking about what happened to qui gon jinn before he was involved in episode I would also be interesting. I know people don't like the prequels, but the sequels were already accounted for via the prequels, so it's kind of necessary for these other ones. I'd also like to know who trained senator palpatine

    That is why I hated Ep 7, it was like a 2 hour deja vu.

    I don't think it will be, I think it will be pre Empire Strikes Back backstory essentially, filler if you will.

    i knew it then again i love the extended universe (legends) the prequels were ok in my opinon i just think the story could have been told better less romance in anakin's story would have helped.

    in my opinion, star wars episodes 1 and 2 were just fundamentally flawed movies in terms of their direction and how they chose to present it - it could have been done so much better, even though some sections of the movie were quite good. a lot of things are just nonsensical and some characters like jar jar are just very unwanted. I assume, too, that you've seen redlettermedia's review of the prequels? they're quite big on youtube and they hilariously explain this point more than I ever could. also, there's actually an edited version of episode 1 on youtube where they edited out loads of the cheesy parts of the movie - if there's ever anybody who's never seen episode 1, I'd want to show them that version over the original. for example, they change jar jar's voice/dialogue
