HUGE Star Wars nerd here, and of course I'm stoked!

Heck, I'm stoked for the new Star Wars Battlefronts.  :)

I've been pleased with how J.J. has handled Star Trek, so I think that the franchise is now in capable hands.

I spent a lot of time last weekend playing the beta for Battlefront and it was a BLAST! I can't wait for it to fully release. There will be a day of hooky in my future for sure.

 

I agree completely about it being in capable hands. It's little things like this that excite me greatly:

 

(The image on the left is a concept drawing by Ralph McQuarrie from Empire & on the right is a Force Awakens Snowtrooper. Such a cool homage that is unnecessary but is eaten up by people like me.)

Is that a new Death Star?

Not quite, I THINK -

Starkiller Base was an ice planet converted into a stronghold of the First Order.[2] The base was commanded by General Hux,[1] and armed with a destructive weapon capable of destroying entire star systems.[2]

I hope that jar jar isn't in this one. Man that character is horrible.

 

I don't think you have to worry about that.  :)

 

 

Even Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams had it out for Jar Jar, he recently told Vanity Fair.

"I have a thought about putting Jar Jar Binks' bones in the desert there," Abrams told the publication. "I'm serious! Only three people will notice, but they'll love it."
