Nice, the trailer looks pretty good....the narrator though... he made me cringe. Other than that it looks okay, though, it's still to early to say whether it's going to be a good movie or a bad movie, the it looks awesome Special Effects wise.

For the most part the trailer was okay, but I had to resist the urge to face-palm when I saw that STUPID three-bladed lightsabre.

That to me confirms what I've been saying all along. This movie/trilogy is just a way to get merchandising deals. That thing was clearly made only because some dipstick thought it would sell toys.

If the filmmakers cared about the fans they'd have adapted the novels. But they don't care about the fans. All they care about is making a commercial to sell as much crap as possible.

This movie will be lame.

It's not three-bladed- it's a cross guard. It's imitating big medieval claymore-like sword. It makes no sense but I think it looks cool- a good assertion of personality.

The protection is uless if in a blad eto blade combat the ligh saber close from this and they will be cut in anyway !!!
How do you do to perform all the reel needed in light saber combat without cuting your toe with this?

And blabla dark side light side.. It will be like in the original trilogy !!!
Not like in the Bane storyline path of destruction etc...

They think we are just geek who still love any SW moovie and they will make this one like evry others ! (But in a bit more awsome... But it will still a shitty SW moovie).

I think we have all noticed that if am right... But that's too much stupid !!!

Now I have the confirmation of a vilan with such.. rho.. It make me feell teh anger, I'm closing to the dark side !!!!
He look nice.. But he have this tupid thing and he won't have the charisma of thrawn, that's just barely possible, and I'm an expert, so I could tell you barely is an euphemism....

This cross gaurd protect from anything... A phrik or cortosis shap like in dooku one is more adequat to this job !!!! It just serve to nothing expet the style and cut your toes when your fighting with it.. It is just good as ceremonial weapon !!!

True. I just said "three-bladed" for simplicity's sake.

You're entitled to your opinion of course. Personally I still think it looks stupid. Weapon designs that make no sense are kind of a pet hate of mine.

agreed on that lightsaber not making any practical sense. why have a crossguard that's weakest at the exact point where it needs to be strongest, unless the junction between all 3 blades is made of some lightsaber-proof metal, but if that's the case why not just make the crossguard out of that metal?

That's an indication of how shtty it will be, it have style, but non sens in the universe. Holonet guy laugh whan they see that (they had found "fuites") but an other SW site well non to confirm that's a rummor is true or not with 99% of certitude, and then they said HO SHIT, and it was also my reaction !
The trailer look awsome but does i need to recall than prequel have those anwsome and bad ass fights if you cut at the good moments...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYMJdhbitXQ
And the prequels trailers used that too.. As peharps thise one did !!!!

Personaly I prefer teh prequel to the original trilogy, prequel are considred bad just because many of the fan were kidds when they see the original and adult when they see the prequels.
Me I was a child when I see the prequels, and I've also watched teh original as a child and I have already my prefrence for the original trilogy...

The universe never had any sense. Why all this talk about it being a silly weapon? There was never any sense in sabres at all, or the way they are handled. It's always been about style. This is carrying on that tradition.

Looks good.

Eeeerrr you are talking about on of the coolest weapon of all the Sci-Fi universe....

A weapon wich is really light, and can cut everything? They are in fact energy fields not properly laser.

I'm a exept in light saber combat and there is a technic use to disarm your opponent (use by Kenobi against grievous.)
And it's a basic one for a form I/II master. Especialy form II....

This fan is for nerdies, and SW nerdies are often expert in light saber fighting style.. Because we had nothing to do between episode III and VII...

http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_k...b0763o1_500.jpg

This is an ergonomic weapon with a protection against this technic....


This :
have no purpose !!!!

I always thought the lightsaber's greatest weakness was the lack of a cross guard. This seeks to remedy that weakness. It is possible, as someone else mentioned, that this is a "claymore" looking light saber. I'm okay with that. Bashar mentioned that the material on the crossguard had better be resistant to the plasma blades. And if it is, why not make the entire cross guard made of that material? That makes sense...the electrostaffs of Grievous' guards was made of a sturdy material, it seems (phrik), so why not the crossguard?


Someone mentioned in another thread that it is possible that this is an old lightsaber from waaaay back in the day. Maybe it is an outdated and archaic lightsaber and they have since improved the design. I still think the lack of a cross guard is a glaring weakness and I always have. This new design helps fix that weakness but it leaves something to be desired.

Bashar, here is a stabilized gif of the Millennium Falcon scene. This will both make you happy and more pissed because this stabilized version is actually better, imo:

I think this is one of the better teasers I've ever seen. Most teasers are little more than a black screen with words and audio. They showed a good deal of actual footage, and got me - someone who isn't a particularly huge fan of the movies, very excited. Thought it looked really cool and Star Wars-y.

Also thought the new Claymore lightsaber was badass as hell.

Yeah oddly enough I know how cool lightsabres are. They are also ridiculous and impossible- and it doesn't matter. You are fooling yourself if you think you have some sort of 'genuine' sabre fighting style- all the moves used in the films (except episode IV) are mostly kendo-based, as if you were in a fight where you needed to penetrate armour, whilst 'real' sabre duels would be reach/rapier matches because all you'd actually need to do is poke your opponent once.

But that would look rubbish on-screen compared to the amazing sabre duels we get. Hang the sense of it- it does not matter. Style is king. The claymore, as Backfire put it, is badass. That trumps everything.

You mean.... Triclope?
No Triclope is a part of post D.E universe like JKA, where byss is completly destroyed...

TMP have also a pretty dam good trailer.

"The darkside...and the light....

To me not I hope they won't made as they made in RotJ with Dark side and light side.. But there is a few chance they will make this bad I feel it !!!

This against the rule of the universe sorry !!! That's like if you could go back to the old republic time with the millenium falcon hyper space sorry !!
Don't know how to explain...

Universe mechanics do you understand???? It's not about it is plausible in our universe... It's how it is possible in SW universe !

Each Sci-Fi universe have uniques mechanics. Each one have something wich it's unpossible to do now and it is possible there, but it is definied by mechanics?? Do you understand?

For example many of SW fan really appreciate the X-Wing alliance serie because it was so close to the real SW mechanics it was realist, not in our universe but compare to the SW canon universe, it was !!!!


I appreciate bad ass design for light saber but here there a mistake so...
Darth Maul light saber staff was bad ass ! Bas ass combo X 2 when he reval than he have 2 blades !!! And it was good usefull !!!

A light saber it's like a katana than can cut evrything no matter the direction of the blade...

Le réveil de la force I have the FR title !!
Force awaken !

Take a translator and read that :
http://www.starwars-holonet.com/inf...enu-teaser.html

A un moment indéterminé, la musique changerait pour une composition plus claironnante et orchestrale, peut-être un medley enregistré ces derniers jours à Londres par John Williams. Outre les personnages de Ridley et Boyega, il y aurait aussi des flashs sur les nouveaux Stormtroopers (voir la news) à l'intérieur d'un vaisseau ou d'un véhicule au vol turbulent, un aperçu des nouveaux X-Wings, des chasseurs TIE, du droïde nouveau modèle de Ridley, et même d'un "Sith" au sabre-laser en forme de croix semblable à celui qu'on a pu voir sur un prétendu concept-art (voir la news). Le laser de son arme semblerait plus sauvage, comme s'il était surchargé.

Enfin, les deux sites s'accordent aussi sur le dernier flash qui serait dédié au Faucon Millenium, qui serait en train de tirer en avançant rapidement vers la caméra. D'après Badassdigest, on entendrait aussi vers la fin une voix féminine -peut-être celle de Ridley- dire « Wake Up » (Réveille-toi).

Cet avant-goût du teaser paraît coller parfaitement avec tout ce que l'on sait déjà du prochain Star Wars ainsi qu'avec différentes rumeurs de ces derniers mois. Parmi celles-ci, le teaser semblerait donc confirmer que Boyega serait un impérial, qu'au moins un des méchants aurait un sabre-laser d'un nouveau genre, ou encore que Ridley porterait des lunettes de protection (comment ça c'est un détail ? ^^). Enfin, le tout pourrait faire grosso modo penser au teaser de l'Episode II, ci-dessous.

Ho this one is bad ass !!! OMG !! A reason to go and see Espisode VII.

Except by the same logic you are saying the claymore is stupid, then so is Maul's weapon. A hafted/staff weapon is useless in a fight when you can only hold the middle as it nullifies the main advantage of reach.

But it doesn't matter- no-one cares. You are simply being selective in your logic. Any twist of in-universe logic that can justify lightsabres and lightstaffs can be used to justify this one as well. In fact, the very fact it is in the film means it must work in the in-universe logic- that's pretty much that.

And more to the point, it is a distinctive design that works to underscore the wielder's personality- that's good work from a design perspective.
