    Doesn't the Klan use titles like "Wizard," which is very much in use in the GFFA? :p

    Anyway, now that we've gotten a crawl that started with "War!" it's only a matter of time until it becomes something along the lines of "Boom! Pow!"

    That's my favorite thus far.

    My idea: "Oh ****!"

    Ha ha.

    "Three decades have passed since the defeat of the Empire and since then the heroes of the Rebel Alliance have all moved on with their lives. Luke's let himself go a bit, as has his sister Princess Leia. Han Solo is an old man and can't walk very well anymore."

    no one could type out how good.

    Thanks for the affirmation, my ego has been boosted. Joking aside, I was thinking that perhaps most people here were too young to get it.

    This MUST be the opening shot too, but instead of Criswell, it's Luke.

    "Peace!
    The end."

    - No, I don't think so.

    Introduced in The Clone Wars was a narrating segment 'stead of the opening crawl. Never know, maybe that will be the route Abrams goes instead (doubt it) but maybe...

    Admittedly cannot think of a good opening line so will go with what line I would rather not see, and that being:

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...April Fool's. Then begins a video of George Lucas reiterating how we as fans "broke his spirit to direct future Star Wars films" with the constant PT bashing.

    I tell you, it is only a matter of time.

    Now, this is a story all about how
    My life got force flipped-turned upside down
    And I'd like to take a minute
    Just sit right there
    I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called... Mos Eisley

    In west Coruscant born and raised
    In the Temple where I spent most of my days
    Chillin' out meditatin' relaxin' all cool
    And flyin' some pod outside the school
    When a couple of Sith who were up to no good
    Started twirlin' sabers in my neighborhood
    I got in one little fight and my step mom got scared
    She said 'You're movin' with your auntie Leia and uncle Han in... Mos Eisley'

    I whistled for a speeder and when it came near
    The license plate said SEBU1BA and it had dice in the mirror
    If anything I could say that this speeder was rare
    But I thought 'Nah, forget it' - 'Yo, homes to... Mos Eisley'

    I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
    And I yelled to Sebulba Yo homes smell ya later'
    I looked at my kingdom
    I was finally there
    To sit on my throne as the Prince of... Mos Eisley.
