Oh no they've created new characters possibly because they look cool and might sell some toys. This has never happened before. I would never fall for such a cynical ploy to sell toys even though I bought four different versions of R2D2, three C3POs, snow troopers, storm troopers, scout troopers, ewoks, Darth Vaders etc. when I was a kid.

The red storm trooper looks cool to me and looking forward to seeing it in the film.

Why are you getting so defensive about what was blatantly quite a tongue-in-cheek comment?

It's nothing new, after all the ewoks were apparently there purely to sell toys.

I actually mentioned it as it was the first bit of news for ages, considering we're 5 months away from opening I'd have expected the publicity to be ramped up a little.

Presumably the red guards and a new iteration of the Emperors Guards.

That shot near the end, you know it's total misdirection.

Wow they really know how to do a teaser - 72 seconds of old stuff and 30 seconds of new stuff and 20+ seconds of text.

Unimpressed

Bet nothing the evil one is a clone

Didn’t think much to the last two, so this will be the first SW movie that I won’t see in the cinema.

Thought they'd decided to forget the prequels, but they did them second.

Yes very odd choice of running order. However I think it might be another way to hammer home the clone theory

Rumor is that there is going to be ANOTHER death star
Old star Destroyers with 25% difference for merchandising reasons
C3PO has his golden arm back but red eyes

JJ gets too much credit, has he really added anything new?

I'm not sure even that would help its that much of a mess.

It's sad but a Star Wars trailer or teaser did get me smiling once upon a time but now its just 'Meh"

Something about it just feels off.

Well Rebels did use that plot device quite well. If they are going to undo stuff I think it's a bit late in the game and JJ is not the person with the finesse to pull it off

I think they're just going to try and include as much stuff to make it feel like the original trilogy to try and appease the fans but what we'll end up is ROTJ v.2 just like TFA was ANH v.2.

They could go back in time and create two alternate realities, twice the movies, twice the profit. Let the guy who thought the movies should be played for laughs try and finish off the mess he created.

I honestly cannot see them ending at 9. I think we'll get another trilogy, they seem to be the only ones making money.

Rogue One must've made some money, surely? If a film that makes over a billion at the box office can't produce a profit then there's something majorly long. So far I would imagine only Solo failed to produce a profit.
