Hype is not something I put a ton of stock in nor is it something I generally get caught up in. But I would be dishonest if I didn’t admit to having my excitement level shoot through the roof following the drop of the “Star Wars: Episode IX” trailer.
The annual Star Wars Celebration in Chicago has given franchise fans a ton to be excited about, nothing bigger than our first look at this year’s huge Star Wars installment. The teaser alone has several cheer-worthy moments – Rey’s tearful embrace with Princess Leia, the return of Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, and of course the all too familiar laugh we hear right before the title is revealed.
Those tired of Star Wars or with no invested interest in the franchise will understandably shrug it off. Me, I’m pumped. What about you? Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or giving it a pass.
