I loved the Star Wars trailer but in fairness, they could have just showed the logo for 90 seconds and I would've been excited

I'm a 44-year-old grown man. Seeing just 88 seconds of #TheForceAwakens has me feeling like the 7-year-old who saw #StarWars in 1977.

There were of course some moans.

Disappointed that the new Star Wars teaser didn’t have anything about trade embargoes or senate committees.

Very disappointed that the Star Wars trailer features no Jar Jar Binks. Presume it's a fake.

Really dont know what to think of the Star Wars trailer. I've been the biggest supporter of JJ Abrams but I'm worried. Looks very prequelish

But the biggest debate started over the new lightsaber.

Look, I'm really excited for the new Star Wars movie too, but those new lightsabers are kind of overkill.

I'll agree that lightsabre seems a tad impractical. Its cool/ the norm in Star Wars to lose your hands right? #StarWarsTheForceAwakens

While other suggestions were made.

What we really need is a lightsaber with three lightsabers coming out of it, and three lightsabers coming out of the three lightsabers.
