Yeah, it really does look like Chewie as the one Rey is crying over in the trailer.
I thought this during the 3rd trailer, but this one pretty much seals the deal. Whether he's dead or wounded though...who knows. My guess is that Han
Solo will bite it in the film. He wanted the character to die earlier in the films, but pretty sure Harrison just wants to go out Solo style.
Yes, the prequels were kind of bad...at first...but surprisingly, at least for me, seeing them again later, I can appreciate them much more for some
reason. Same with the original movies. Sure, they lose something seen with adult eyes, but still the whole deal is just magical.
Personally, if the trailers are any indication, it seems JJ is hitting it right on the mark, and if anything, I'm near to hoping these new movies will
be even BETTER than the originals. I know, I know, that's a tall order, but I think we're going to see it. Granted, I think part of that is the
inclusion of elements of the original.
My guess, and it's only a guess so far, is that Rey and Ren are fraternal twins (like Luke and Leia) but of Han and Leia. Though how they get from
point A (being the kids of two famous rebellion leaders) to point B (scavenger on a backwater planet and leader of Sith) is beyond me....so I could be
way off base. The hot shot pilot is probably Luke's kid (though who's the mom?), while the obvious choice for Finn's dad is of course Lando.
Or, more likely, they have no relation to the previous characters at all.
(and yeah, betting he got the helmet from Endor, and Vader's funeral pyre/tomb, etc.)
Either way, we've already got our tickets for opening night, and we'll be in full Jedi garb like our fellow geeks!
