Re: What We Learned From The Second Star Wars Trailer
@zerox203- It is my understanding that none of that extended universe counts. The only things that count are the 6 movies, the Rebels cartoon, and the two novels they've released since they bought Lucasfilms.

It is possible Luke's speech is just a pep talk to young padawans. But i think he's talking to his kids.

One thing that is hitting the internet now is the tense of "my father has it [the force]." Many are speculating that Anakin/Vader is the thing that "Awakens" in "the Force Awakens." Disney is certainly pushing Vader hard in the Rebels cartoon for season 2 so I suppose it is possible.

I learned that Star Wars owes a lot to its John Williams score. Music is powerful, even if we refuse to pay for it.

Re: Trailers, trailers
@Whoopty- Well, the fun thing about Super Heroes is they do die. And then come back. And then die again. And come back. And usually with a new actor playing them. :)

So the good news is that you could know there was a Captain America movie in 2025 and it doesn't mean he won't die three times before that.
