      When in the Star Wars timeline does this take place? Han Solo would be pushing 70 flying the Falcon like that.

        I liked it, gave a triumphant return of the Star Wars franchise
        for a new generation. (Despite the last movie only aired almost
        a decade ago).

          Now that Disney owns the franchise and J.J. Abrams is involved, this is a continuation from the original Star Wars Trilogy ending with "Return of the Jedi", so this new movie is a couple of decades later.

          Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill will be starring in this new film. Sounds like my kind of movie, lol.

            There's a lot of discussion as to what elements they are pulling from the extended universe. This will be 30 years post-Return of the Jedi, which has been covered in books, comics and other media. But since the Disney buyout, all of that was declared non canon and only what we've seen on screen and what will be released from now on, is within official continuity.

            All of that said...this teaser was everything I hoped it would be. It's a shame we gotta wait a whole year.

              I love how fiction has canon and non canon material.

                There's a part of me that wants all movies franchises to have a finite life cycle - and then let the fans take it from there!

                I want creative professionals to take up new characters and situations. Each generation deserves to have their own "blockbuster series" instead of being hit over the head with 30 year old storylines.

                But wtf, I'll just sit back on enjoy the ride, lol.

                  From what I've understood, the novels and comics started telling stories only by fan demand for them. Lucas allowed it all to exist in a sort of grey area, because most of the timeline would probably never be filmed. Until now.

                    I have to admit, by December 2015 I will be very anxious to see this new Star Wars movie . . . quite anxious indeed.
