When I woke up this morning, I had something that I wanted to blog about. I don’t remember what that something was, because this happened:
Wow. This second teaser is even better than the first one. J.J. Abrams certainly knows how to tug on the collective Star Wars fanbase’s heart strings: Luke’s narration, Vader’s mask, Leia’s hand, Artoo, then BANG! Han and Chewie!
I believe the Internet’s reaction went something like this:
All of us fanboys/girls were blubbering idiots today.
Tonight I showed it to my parents, who took me to the see the original so many moons ago. Their reactions as we watched:
[Vader’s mask] Mom: Uh oh, not that guy.
[R2-D2] Mom: Yay, R2-D2! He’s my favorite.
[Han and Chewie] Mom: Harrison Ford looks old.
Pop: Chewbacca looks the same.
Mom: Let’s go see it this Christmas!
Pop: Better get in line now.
Is it December 18th yet?
