I think one thing that really excited me yesterday when they were interviewing Isaac, Ridley and Boyega was how into the roles they were. I see the same excitement from interviews with the case of the cast of Rebels (FPJ especially). BTW, next season has recruited his wife (Sarah Michelle Gellar) for the season as well. I know that they are smoking their own brand pretty much but when the cast is excited, I get excited.

If you preorder the game, you get The Battle of Jakku as free DLC early. Sign me up and take my money. Now. And EA has a 10 year deal to do games for Lucasfilm?

I watched the teaser this morning with my 3 year old, and my wife walks in at the end and sarcastically comments, "doesn't an old Harrison Ford just kind of ruin it"? I earmuffed the kid and told her to shut the **** up.

To answer a couple questions about the marketing...

Expect the next/final big marketing push to begin in September. There likely won't be much more marketing this summer. September is when the new books start releasing and then October is usually when the big December movie releases its final/full trailer. In fact, there's a site called The Projection List (wink-wink) that's projecting the final trailer to hit mid-October...

So...

- SEPTEMBER: New books start releasing

- OCTOBER: Final/Full trailer

- NOVEMBER: Commercials should start airing in mass, billboards up everywhere, etc.

- DECEMBER: The movie itself obviously hits theaters

don't show us Luke until we're sitting in the movie theater

Yes, please, this.

Think back to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. A mere 5 years had passed since the Temple of Doom, yet when Harrison Ford was first shown as Indy aboard the Coronado after the young Indy sequence with River Phoenix, I remember a big smile on my face and the crowd actually cheered for the appearance of Harrison Ford.

I think that with 32 years passing since we last saw Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, keeping his face out of all previews will make his first appearance in The Force Awakens truly awesome.

For those curious, the book title that will lead into TFA is called, appropriately I might add, "Aftermath."

Also, Star Wars: Battlefront releases in November (17th) and will have tie-ins to the film, including the Battle of Jakku.

Love that this is going viral. Possibly the start of a new meme. (And my reddit post was linked, woo hoo!)

The comics for events post ANH are already in progress. There are also some other mini-series going on though. Lando just got his own comic mini-series which was announced yesterday I think. There is a comic series or novel (not sure which) coming in September as well, but I haven't read much about that honestly.

You don't have to pre-order the game to get the free DLC. According to the producer chick, everyone who has the game on Dec. 8th will have access to the free DLC. If you pre-order, you get the content a week earlier.

When is D23 this year? It wouldn't shock me if a new trailer is shown there.

I saw it but confused by it. What type of game play is it? FPS? TPS?

How many issues have been released, and are they any good?

I haven't played a legit video game in over a decade. Seeing that all but assured I'll be purchasing a PS4 come November. Wow.

They said you have the option of 3rd or 1st person. Whichever you prefer. And by this, I mean your personal viewpoint

That's ALL OVER Twitter, and on just about every site I go to. Please tell me that was actually you, Brian...

I can't remember for sure, but I think the original Battlefront series of games were 3rd person. I've played so much BF3 and BF4, that it might feel weird to me to actually play third person now.
