The EU definitely had its ups and downs Smile

I was worried that JJ was going to "modernize" everything like he did with Star Trek, bringing digital screens and such to the Falcon and what not ... very pleased with the trailer!! It looks like he understands the fans' affection for the old school cinematography, and equally capable of bringing that to the screen. Smile

I've read some spoiler info and like what I hear. One year to wait...

Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised, but I don't share your optimism.

Now I disagree about the effects. I like the miniatures they originally used better than the overabundance of CGI in the prequels.
The only really bad one was the Rancor beast. Obvious lines where he was inserted.
I love the mythology of Star Wars. I think maybe the Church of Jedi takes it a bit too far, but Lucas really did a good job with his parallels to older mythologies and philosophies. At least, until the stupid midichlorian stuff. You're telling me that the force is little parasites? It's a freakin' germ? "Timmy can't come to the cantina today, he's got a bad case of the 'chlores!" I preferred thinking of it as more like chi. Stupid midichlorian, Jar-Jar, pod race, grumble.
Only one reason to watch Episode I: Darth Maul fight.
Episode II made me want to schmarf with all of the romantic garbage. But, again, the saving grace was the Yoda fight.
Episode III I liked all around. Except maybe that Anakin's transformation seemed a little sudden. Like, one minute he feels bad about killing a Sith, and the next minute he's slaughtering little kids? A bit quick, I think.
But it had some awesome fights. Great moments from the Yoda.

IV-VI are all time classics. Everything about them is good. Except that Rancor.


I have never understood the hate for the midiclorians. No, the Force is NOT midiclorians. The Force is an energy field that binds the universe together. Your ability to detect and interact with that field is dependant on the levels of the midiclorians in your system. But they are not the Force in and of themselves.

The entire concept of Darth Plagueis is that he learned how to manipulate the midichlorians to create life and that's the reason Anakin has no father. I personally feel that to be an incredibly stupid concept. I like The Force just being "space chi." It's all personal taste, though.

That is not why Anakin has no father. The midichlorians did conceive him, but it was the will of the Force, not Darth Plagueis.

Not according to the Wookiepedia entry Earth Plageuis. It wasn't on purpose but The Chosen One was created as a byproduct of Plageuis's midichlorian experiments.

Of course, that comes from the Darth Plagueis book, which is EU, so Disney will disregard it even though Lucas sanctioned it.
