And, holy crap, it's awesome. To hear the narration of Luke Skywalker. To see the burned-out mask of Darth Vader. And to see Han Solo and Chewie together again o mall their glory.
Can December just get here already!?
The good read of the day comes from the Chicago Tribune. ...
You have never seen more grown men do the no-I'm-not-crying subtle swipe at a tear drop on their faces than you did the moment Harrison Ford turned to his large brown furry sidekick, Chewbacca, and said: “Chewie, we're home.” On Thursday morning here at the Anaheim Convention Center, director J.J Abrams debuted about 90 seconds of new footage of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” to a packed room. The occasion was “Star Wars: Celebration,” the enormous, every-once-in-a-Tattooine-moon, Lucasfilm-organized “Star Wars” convention, and when Ford, as Han Solo, and Chewie appeared at the end of the footage, Ron Stein, of Maryland, turned to his brother and said:Enjoy.
“The hair stood on my head.”
Stein is bald.
