Alright so, the Star Wars trailers (the last two, including the most recent from Japan) have made me cry. The second time (the one from Japan) I just went ahead and let myself (cry).

I know I'm not the only one, because I have seen all the stuff on line. I heard about the Fox News thing, but didn't really pursue it because I don't need them #ing up my experience with their carefully cultivated and garnished opinion.

I don't know what to make of myself, and this is definitely a time when I know that the insight provided by our united (although seemingly not so) brain power can help me to understand myself better.

There are links and videos that I could provide as part of the OP, but we have time for that. I will provide one link because it refers to even ...the most hardened Star Wars fans..

That's me. Totally hardened.

I am precisely part of the fandom referred to by Lucas as having “taken the films too seriously.” (okay, I will provide maybe more than one link). I'm just saying that I'm so hardcore that I gave up on the franchise at The Empire Strikes Back, and I saw the original film for the first time at 10.

I'm really puzzled. Yeah, the trajectory of my life was changed at a very young age by a film, I could say that I'm a fan, but I know that many of you understand that it runs much deeper than that. But to cry? Over an Abram's film? I can't help but feel that something isn't right, because it couldn't possibly be that right after all of these years.

Was it the music? I have carefully immunized myself against the Spielbergian symphonic swell and am immune. What gives? Help me out.

Ah God, I know, if this is going to be the way it's going to be it's going to be awful. There had better be special screenings for those over 40.

#'n Abrams, right?

I want to metaphorically slap you with a wet fish. I better leave it at that.

I wouldn't want Admiral Ackbar to see you do that they may be related.

Yes. Take up thine nerdness, and walk.

Folks like you and I are mainstream now. It's confusing.

I don't go to them so much these days.

I went dressed as 'slave' Leia but everyone kept saying "great Jabba costume"!

It ain't the movie.. .it's the stopwatch counting down to decrepitude and death... in short, grotesque nostalgia.

In the West, our lives have been largely framed by media events... as have most people's alive in the last 50-70 years.

That's my theory, anyway... though the prequels made me cry, too, but for different reasons.

But it was pretty cool to see at 10 (I think I was 11)... and I'll watch the damned thing, too... but I aint crying, I'll save that for when I get lost in the supermarket in a few short years.

I was just talking to a work pal about this and he told me he didn't cry when his son was born but cried his eyes out at the trailer.
Odd isn't it?.

a reply to: boymonkey74 I am an official Jedi on the uk census. I wonder what religious freedoms I should try to dictate.

I admit I cried too. Not ashamed I think if something that was so important to one as a child, releases a flush of memories it can be an emotional experience. I would rather have those emotions effect me than just to see the trailor and think ' just another film meh

Meesa thinks people are crying with relief after seeing the prequels.

Revel in your nerdness! Embrace it and tell the people who say "It's just a movie" to go get stuffed. I am not as much a Star Wars fan as a Star Trek fan, but I can understand your tears. To see Leia, Chewy and Han, together again....well, even I got a little choked up.
When Spock died, I cried. When Kirk died in one of the later movies, I cried. I have watched that show from the time it aired in the 60s, all the way through to the present movies and grew to love those characters, so never let anyone tell you "It's just a movie".
