Nigh On Spiritual Star Wars The Force Awakens Comic-Con 2015 Reel
Sitting here at home, I am surrounded by Star Wars memorabilia. At work? Even worse. There is my Storm Trooper standee, my Darth Vader Helmet, my Clone Trooper helmet, my C3-P0 maquette, Darth Maul is over there, light sabers galore. No single thing touches my inner child like Star Wars. Nothing. So much so, that when people flame out over the prequels, I demure, and stay quiet, because… heck, they were one more look into the world that was my childhood. So they were alright by me.
But when thinking about The Force Awakens, and the possibilities… Something strange happens.
I remember when I stood in line for a day or two a piece just to get tickets. And the experience I had with the fans. I remember the interviews I gave with the radio stations and craziness of the days out there just laughing and playing cards on piles of uneaten pizza donated by the local Dominos station. More fantastic memories. So when you ask me about J.J. Abrams and his latest permutation on the glory that is Star Wars, I say… just icing on the cake, just icing on the cake.
Until I saw this… because, after seeing this, you know what? This new movie, The Force Awakens, may just be the cake… it just might be the cake. This Comic Con Reel is just absolutely to die for.
I’m ready now to run out and stand in line. Let’s go people. STAR WARS IS BACK BABY! (Never mind that that mouse may very well run it directly into the ground with 7 more movies in the following 6 months… but We’ll talk about that another day. Cause right now…) STAR WARS IS BACK!
