Celebration Livestream...and a new trailer for Ep7

For 99% of the demographic of SW fans that won't be attending Celebration tomorrow, it's pretty awesome they're doing this, for free. Also, the rumor mill and fanbase agree that we're likely to see a new trailer drop during the 10AM PST panel tomorrow with the TFA cast, JJ Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy.

I'm planning on working from home tomorrow so I can stream it on my PC as I work...I'll probably record the 10AM panel...I'm not sure if they will post it on youtube after the fact, or if it will be highlights only. So if it turns out and anyone else wants a copy, I'll try to figure out a way to share.

There are spoilers in this panel. Be forewarned.
Watch at 1:02:25 for BB8's appearance. I WANT ONE.

Additional details - Potential Spoilers if you are trying to avoid - BE WARNED:
Spoiler:
The new desert planet is NOT Tatooine. It's called Jaaku, and plays a pivotal role in the launch of the story.
Poe Dameron is a Rebel Pilot, assigned a special task by Princess Leia at the beginning of the movie.
Rei is a junker/scavenger. She's an independent loner and lives in space wreckage/ship graveyard on Jaaku's surface, as implied by the trailer.
Finn is a stormtrooper, working for the Empire. Why he gets involved with the other characters on Jaaku wasn't revealed.

I already have questions, just from the trailer. I will put them behind a spoiler tag.
Spoiler:
Why does Luke say "My father has it" Shouldn't it be had? Is Vader alive? That leads me to the second question, why isn't Vaders helmet fully burned/melted?
I also think Chewy should have gray hair, he hasn't aged a day!

I noted that too, Bul. Seemed sort of odd.

Spoiler:
The Luke dialogue heard in the trailer was lifted from ROTJ, and is not from TFA. It's from the part where he reveals to Leia that they're related, on Endor at the Ewok village. So technically, Vader is still alive when the words are being uttered. For the spoilerly inclined, from the rumors I've heard Vader's charred helmet is supposedly recovered as a Sith artifact. There is a certain person in the Empire who is very keen on collecting these, his collectorish ways becomes a plot device for the whole movie...I could probably elucidate if people want as I'm very much spoilt on the plot. But I'll leave it at this for now.
As I mentioned on Facebook, Chewie is about 230 years old. Arguably since the average lifespan of a Wookie is 400 years, he's in his mid-30s in human years. Some folks are genetically predisposed to greyness, others like myself were pretty much fully grey at 32. Maybe he chose to get his hair dyed. Or he has good genes. Either way...I'm ok with it.

Spoiler:
He said it that way because there is no death, only the force, so from that point of view he never died, hence present tense rather than past. That's my reasoning anyway.

If Vader is alive, even if they claim some cloned bullshit I'm going to murder someone.

Ahem...
Spoiler:
From what I've heard, Vader doesn't appear in this movie, at least not the Anakin version. It's possible that Kylo Ren gets messed up at some point in the trilogy that he might get cybernetics and become like a Vader 2.0, but...I'm doubting that Disney would go this way. Based on what I've seen they want to go a completely different direction with the story, but keep the spirit of the original trilogy alive.

I actually like the fact that Vader is at least being indirectly used in this movie. It ties all the 6 episodes together with this new story quite nicely.

You remind me of this:

Captain's log, stardate 9522.6: I've never trusted Klingons, and I never will. I could never forgive them for the death of my boy. It seems to me our mission to escort the Chancellor of the Klingon High Council to a peace summit is problematic at best. Spock says this could be an historic occasion, and I'd like to believe him, but how on earth can history get past people like me?

Maybe this will help you feel a little better...

We need a new emote on these forums for SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.

Battlefront 3 details:

-Street date: November 17th...
-"Fans who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront will be among the first players to experience the Battle of Jakku, the pivotal moment when the New Republic confronted key Imperial holdouts on a remote desert planet on the Outer Rim. Taking place in the aftermath of the Rebel victory in the Battle of Endor, players will experience the events that created the massive, battle-scarred landscape of Jakku shown in Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™. Players who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront can fight the battle one-week early starting on December 1, 2015. All other players will get access to this free content on December 8, 2015."

I want to like this game, but the lack of a campaign is not ideal IMO.

I just hope there is no robot armies. The political correctness of robot bad guys in 1,2&3 made me want to hurl.

That trailer tho...

The level of immersion and graphics MAY be enough for me to ignore the lack of a campaign mode. Plus...I really wanna see how that Star Destroyer got lodged into the landscape in the desert planet.

Don't get me wrong, it's on my radar and if a bunch of you are getting it I'll join the party, the lack of a campaign mode is disappointing tho.

Spoiler:
Hamill was "cleared" to tell the packed house that he did record a voiceover specifically for the new teaser trailer, which debuted on Thursday during the Celebration kick-off panel.

In the teaser, we hear Luke's voice saying a familiar, but slightly altered line from "Return of the Jedi": "The force is strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. My sister has it. You have that power too."

He laughed and said that he kept messing up and saying: "My father had it."
