Star Wars: Episode VII trailer

The first teaser trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII has been unveiled, and I’m very excited! What I think is so great about this trailer is how it manages to be instantly recognizable as Star Wars, and yet still feel fresh and up-to-date. In particular, the closeup photography of the Stormtroopers feels quite gritty and contemporary, not the kind of shot we would have seen from George Lucas. I think that J.J. Abrams┬áhas a good track record on rebooting franchises, and I have high hopes that he will deliver on this.
