I could handle never seeing another Star Wars 7 trailer based on watching this single reel. It gave me everything I wanted without giving up a single thing about the plot. Did you see that shot of the X-Wing pilots gathered around the Millennium Falcon? For being behind-the-scenes documentary footage it said so much with so much heart. I loved that, if you looked closely, you could spot all kinds of interesting things going on in the background during shots and especially in the creature shop. In a way, I think I might enjoy this period of time leading up to the release of the movie just as much as watching the movie itself. Now about never seeing another Star Wars 7 trailer… could I renege on that?
