Hahaha, I'm here Lee. Trying very hard not to rain on the parade of people here. We're in the minority here, and I don't want to step on too many toes.
I certainly hope we dont see leias knockers pop out on screen. Surely she would need scaffolding to stop them reaching her knees
That's why they waited until 2015 to release this. CGI is advanced enough now that those can be fixed.
If that really is another Death Star, then this officially moves away from sequel and becomes remake (or "re-imagining"). Together with Star Destroyers, TIE Fighters, Falcon, Stormtroopers, Han, Chewie, Luke, Leia, 3PO, R2-D2, X-Wings, a Sith wearing all black and a mask, desert scene (*which we swear isn't Tatooine, honest, really*), speeder bikes, etc., I wonder if there's even room for an original idea in this? And that's not even the little things that I'm sure we'll see. No doubt we'll have Jawas and various other known aliens in there too.
This poster reminds me of the Special Edition posters. No subtlety, just cram in as many characters and ships as possible. Oh, and lightsabers.
And.....I see PT levels of being let down are rearing their heads. For every thumbs up comment I see here, I see "not for me", "too photoshopped", "too busy", etc. The PT suffered drastically from people not being able to lower their expectations. People were so excited, it could have won 25 Academy Awards, made a gazillion dollars, and been named the greatest cinematic achievement in history - and people would have still been let down. The PT is not horrible - but many feel that way because it couldn't meet what they expected it to be. The same thing is going to happen to this. I not only predict, but guarantee, that within 2-3 months after it's released and the excited fanboying is over, the criticisms will start to surpass the accolades. Hell, it's already started, with the freaking POSTER!
