i'm really excited about this movie. i used to not like star wars when everyone else was into it (so i didn't see the other ones in theaters), but now i'm a star wars fan and i'm looking forward to seeing a star wars movie in theaters for the first time <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/banana.gif" BORDER="0">

okay, this is old, but i just saw the theatrical trailer at the end of the OC (i don't watch that show but i knew the trailer would be at the end). it was so awesome!!!! wow, i can't wait for this movie. there don't seem to be many star wars fans here, but still...wow. if anyone wants to see it online, it's supposed to be on the official star wars website on sunday i think.
