Agreed!  :D

Every trailer I see new stuff and get more pumped.  This one's tone is pretty hopeless seeming.  The defending the bridge in SPR looks.  :-X

I'm pretty excited for this movie...probably more than I was for Episode VII.  From an article I read about Gareth Edwards' shooting this movie more like a war film...(the crews were all in costume just in case they were inadvertently in the shot because they were so organic), to the nostalgic factor of Vader, most likely Tarkin, and even Bail Organa and Mon Mothma being in the film, but not focusing too much on those characters.  As well as the imagery from the previews and no hint of JJ Abrams being involved in the story....this could be the best film made by Disney so far!
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

I'm excited for this too, more than TFA...  I liked TFA a lot, so I don't have any hate for JJ Abrams and all that, but this is an ideal stand alone thing for me.  Like little taste of something different in Star Wars is all.

Agreed, and I hope they keep the darker, grittier feel that was the original vision. This would work much more effectively as a traditional war film than some screwball space adventure.

I think they've assembled a fine cast too. If the writing is strong I don't see how this thing could come out badly. Everything I've seen so far has been pretty solid.

Very cool segment on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Felicity Jones was on as the guest, and she did a fight choreography sequence with Jimmy. And of course there was a clip! Great stuff from a chase/fight sequence on what appeared to be Jedha.

Felicity Jones Demos Her Badass Star Wars Fight Moves on Jimmy and clip.

And I have to say, the music really works for me!

Speaking of music, I saw the soundtrack was finally up for preorder on Amazon if anyone else collects those CDs.
