I'm so happy. I remember being a very young kid and sitting in the theater the first time I saw the first Star Wars movie, and the feeling of not being able to get out of my seat when the movie. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Trailer) ($TBA) just gave me that same feeling. The Force Awakens looks to be a much grittier version of the franchise that we come to love. My guess is you won't be seeing Jar Jar Binks or the overly cute Ewoks in this much cooler version.
