It’s been a big day for us my fellow Star Wars fans! Not only did we finally get a title drop (because I mean Dear God it felt like we never would) but we also got our first look at this soon-to-be epic finale with the first ever teaser trailer dropped at Star Wars Celebration! I have to say it was near torture to be at work knowing that this thing was streaming online and that I couldn’t just go in the back at watch it with all the other awesome fans (who plans this kind of reveal for the middle of a work day I ask you?!) but a little after one o’clock I peered online and finally saw the title that we’ve all been waiting for and guessing at for the last year or so, and then had the strength of will (and the desire to not be fired for walking out and claiming it to be an official Star Wars Day of celebration!) I made it to a late lunch of 2:30 and finally got to see the teaser… and let me just tell you, I nearly fell out of my chair!

From the Han and Leia romance theme blaring in the background, to the backflip-onto-a-tie-fighter that shocked the entire fandom, to the victorious return of Lando Calrissian himself, this trailer was EVERYTHING I had hoped it would be and frankly so much more than I thought we would get! Needless to say, we’ve got A LOT to discuss!!! So we’ll definitely have a more in-depth breakdown of all the epic moments and hella shockers tomorrow but I just wanted to be here with you all tonight, my Star Wars family, as we gather around and take our first look at the end of the Skywalker saga… and appreciate all the magic it has created in our lives!!!

And thank you again for taking this year-long journey into the mythos of Star Wars with me, I know there were no posts this week but I declared a mini-break was very much in order (and very necessary to be honest) but never fear, we’ll continue right on with our regularly scheduled SW posts tomorrow with a deeper look at the trailer itself before returning to Episode III: Revenge of the Sith!!!  ❤ Tara
