- The Force Awakens…
At what age is it socially acceptable to introduce my boy to Star Wars?
My son is four and has seen them all apart from revenge of the sith. Although he did attack the other kids at nursery with a stick once whilst pretending to be luke.
Just showed him the new trailer. He shouted look, millenium falcon!!
Unsure why people are moaning about the star destroyer….you do realise these films are made up fantasy dont you? Search your feelings you know it to be true!Posted 4 years agodudeofdoomSubscriber
I can still remember seeing the original star wars posters on the wall when no-one knew what star wars was 🙁
Its the opening scene of when the star destroyer goes over and the cinema feels like its going to self destruct that always sticks in my mind…
Naah i’m no watching the trailers…Im gonna wait and bathe in it..
JJ Abrahams did good with Star Trek and I reckon he’ll follow thru.Posted 4 years agoxherbivorexSubscriber
it makes perfect sense for that to be luke’s old lightsaber anyway; it was presumably in the star destroyer after his hand was cut off on bespin.
or maybe not. who knows.
anyway, this looks amazing and you naysayers are wrong.
i’ll leave you with this, that a friend of mine wrote:
“If George Lucas is like the once loving father that made a mistake and betrayed your trust and leaves you abandoned and angry at the world then JJ Abrams is like that boyfriend yer mam gets years later that actually remembers your birthday and has some decent records and doesn’t try to molest you.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhh its been deduced that its the Return of the jedi speech “roughened up” for an elder voice…..
funny thing about that melted vader helmet…..does that mean someone has gone back to The 4th Moon of Endor where Vader was burned….or did Luke take it with him for a keepsake (!!)
The more i see it the more i wonder if they are going to touch upon anything to do with setting up the new senate and its after effects of “destroying” the Empire – or if it will be brushed aside as “everything descended into chaos and thats when the dark side comes back”
for sure i see the following surprises in the film
Yoda as a Force Ghost
Obi Wan as a Force Ghost (your telling me Ewan McG wouldnt do a little piece in this movie him being a big fan of SW)
Han dies at the hands of an evil Jedi
The tie fighter scene with the falcon – its not what it first appears, too easy a storyline to have the Empire back as it was just without the emperor….
whatever – its going to be exciting and as stated above pllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllease not sh**Posted 4 years agobombjackMember
As a massive fanboy I’m not ashamed to admit that it got a little dusty round here when I first watched the new trailer.Posted 4 years ago
And jeesus, the crashed x-wing / Star Destroyer in the desert – Just awesome.
My oldest boy is 4 and a huge fan of the SW rebels cartoon & original trilogy (on VHS might I add…) I think the first viewing will be on my own however. No way I’m having this ruined by questions from either him or my wife.daftvaderMember
Minivader was 4 when we watched the original films and he has seen the rest now apart from revenge of the sith. We both watched the trailer last night and both sat transfixed!! We may be slightly obsessed 😀 Both of us love the rebels series and I’m currently decorating his room with a very heavy starwars influence…Posted 4 years agophil40Member
Chewbacca dying was in the EU, when Disney took over the reigns they have called all of the EU to that point ‘legends’ so it is not canon! I think that is a really good thing because it has freed them up to take this films in a different direction.
To be fair a load of the EU became whiny emu nonsense, with the emperor making lots of returns (clones etc)! The only part I am slightly sad about is that Mara Jade will not be around.
I think that the books that have come out recently, Tarkin, heir to the Jedi, and the rebels stuff is now canon and will be consistent with the films.
I have just realised how sad I am to know all of this stuff! I need to get a life 🙂Posted 4 years ago
