    This is more about what the fact of having an ST means, rather than anything we know in particular about Ep. 7 (which is scant anyway). My 5 favorite things about the fact of an ST are:

    5. More visually distinct backdrops and styles
    4. The excitement of seeing a story continued after a huuuuuge gap in chapters
    3. More musical motifs and concert arrangements of those motifs
    2. The renewal of traditional New SW movie anticipation checklists and speculations
    1. The very real possibility, for future generations watching the Saga, of Luke falling to the Dark Side in Episode VI

    What are yours?

    Finding out what happens with the Big 3 and the rest of the OT characters is a big draw for me. And, just the general state of the GFFA post rebellion.

    In no particular order:
    1. A new era, with new characters, locations, etc. to explore
    2. An ending to the seemingly infinite Clone Wars Era
    3. Possible new Weird Al parody
    4. Star Wars hype everywhere!
    5. As a Disney fan first, Disney Hollywood Studios getting Star Wars Land (Goodness gracious does that park need it)
    6. New Battlefront

    In a bit of off-the-cuff inspiration:

    Old-timer heroes and young generations
    New space adventures with soaring emotions
    Plots and intrigues that tug at our heartstrings
    These are a few of my favorite things

    Jedi fighting Sith and amazing actions
    Planets and systems and new constellations
    Bright, shining ships with starlight on their wings
    These are a few of my favorite things

    Fantastic costumes with inspiring designs
    Music that stays in our hearts and in our minds
    Breathtaking CG that off the screen springs
    These are a few of my favorite things

    When the time flies, when the wait stings
    When I'm feeling sad
    I simply remember my favorite things
    And then I don't feel so bad

    Lauré :)

    .....Well done Maria...I mean Laure' (sorry, forgot my hotkeys to insert alternate letters).

    I want to see the completion of 7, 8 and 9 in a fashion that gives me the feeling I had when I first saw Ep IV for the first time; however with a good balance of CG that is not overdone. I want to see the old character well developed as if they fought, loved, learned and became wiser - not just a mere older version of their past characters. I want to see a new generation of characters that are fresh, but still have the charisma and draw to make you want to invest your time in...

    I was watching The Beginning documentary earlier today and at the end when they're showing fans sitting in the theater and the lights go down and suddenly STAR WARS blasts onto the screen I immediately remembered how amazing it was to sit in a theater as a new SW movie began. Being able to have that feeling again is my favorite thing.

    I just cannot wait to see what happens to the Big 3 post-ROTJ. It's something I always wondered about since I was 9. Well, not all the time since I was 9 but you know what I mean.
    Can't wait to see it!

    I can't wait to cry again at the end of Episode IX's credits, knowing that it's the end of the saga. That feeling at the end of ROTS was... indescribable.

    My favorite thing is seeing the characters from the OT in their 60's, just as George told us over the years. Seeing the completion of the 9 Episode Saga. Seeing Jedi Master Luke Skywalker at full power, with a family. Seeing the new generation and how they interact with each other and the OT characters. Seeing the New Republic and the Jedi Order reborn. Seeing how the ST changes the way we view the Saga.

    This. Right here. Sitting around with other nerds, reveling in the knowledge that there will be another Star Wars movie. I enjoy TCW, and the games, and to some extent the comics, but none of them come close to the excitement of sitting in a movie theater waiting for "A Long Time Ago..."

    1. Meeting new characters, locations, weapons, aliens
    2. Seeing the old casts roles in the movie
    3. All the future slash fan fic I will find thanks to tumblr
    4. Fan reactions to it all
    5. Not knowing everything ahead of time like you do with prequels (you basicly know who lives and dies when it comes to prequel films to almost any franchise)

    1. That the story will continue and it will create more Star Wars fans and enthusiasm.
    2. Reading and posting in the ST discussions on the JC.
    3. Seeing what happens after ROTJ (something the PT didn't show us) and seeing cast members reprise their roles.
