I've seen this in my other spheres of interest (yes, I do have a life beyond this forum >;) ). Demands for a TV show are becoming louder and more frequent.

I was 10 years old when Star Wars came out.  I think I saw the movie 20 times that summer !    This looks awesome so far.  And I'm not a fan geek, I can't imagine how they feel right now ?

Wookies are supposed to live for hundreds of years, he hasn't showed any ageing in any of the movies yet.

 

Hmm...perhaps just a bit of fan geek ;)

P.S. I was 7 when SW came out.  I'm prob similar to you...I know Star Wars but I don't have a tattoo or a dog named named Admiral Ackbar or anything.  I saw that movie a LOT when it came out (and again and again in it's re-releases over the next few years.)

I know lots of people are into it, but this interests me about as much as Harry Potter movies or the whole Twilight thing... that is to say, not at all.

You needed to be there when it originally came out to fully grasp how big of a deal it was back in the 70's.   Childhood memories I know, but they were good ones of those movies.  Still sticks in the hearts of adults that were kids then. 

 

Abram's is a fan ( he's 48 yrs old ) and lived thru that time, hoping for the best from him.   I thought he did Star Trek justice.

 

 

I saw 1 at the movies and 2 and 3 at home.  Watched each one a couple of times by now I guess, I doubt I'll ever watch them again, but by comparison I've probably seen Star Wars itself easily over 50 times.   And will watch it again !

^This.

 

So beyond it's time its time in the 70's it was just mesmerizing for anyone who was single digits in age when it came out.

[shrug] It's not everyone's thing -- for my part: I am disgusted beyond words at the proto-snuff-porn rubbish which passes for "horror" these days; my kingdom for the days when the SFX didn't always work, and one had to rely on Actors Acting (the autopsy sequence from Spielberg's Large Ill-Tempered Fish Movie, for ex.).

 

And that was part of why _Star Wars_ was a Big Deal -- before then, SF movies looked cheap and chintzy (Flash Gordon serials; any of the '50s and '60s SF seen on _Mystery Science Theatre 3000_; and so on). _SW_, OTOH, looked like someone had actually cared enough to do the damned thing properly: The ships looked like actual ships, and moved like them (tho' they must be using some far-advanced maneuver drive; otherwise, they should be using vector movement); the aliens did not look like "a human with facepaint" (tho' admittedly some looked better than others -- Chewbacca vs. the singer at Jabba's palace, for ex.); locations looked "lived in" -- scuffed paint, dirt, fluid leaks, and such (one gripe leveld at the prequels: "It wasn't dirty-looking enough"). In short: It looked like someone cared enough to do a good job, rather than slapping something together to make a quick buck. All Lucas needed was someone to write his dialogue for him, and they'd have the set. :)

 

Coupled to this was the, let's face it, not-very-good prequel films -- the disappointment that engendered had people wondering "Will the next trilogy bee Original Series, or Prequel, grade?" Myself: I'm holding judgment -- frankly, I've never been impressed with Abrams's work; and I do sort-of wonder what The Mouse is going to do to the series....

 

So, for fans of SF, this is a Big Deal. For not-fans, it's "what's the big deal?". Each is acceptable.
