Words and things, mostly words.
I’ve not actually seen the new Star Wars trailer, but my Twitter feed has been inundated with every possible reaction one could imagine. I’ll eventually get around to looking at it, but the Star Wars universe isn’t something I’m really interested in. I didn’t mind the last 2 movies, but I took my time before seeing them and see no reason to deviate from this approach.
I don’t have any problems with the franchise — outside of problems I have with franchises in general — but the discourse is intolerable and unavoidable. I’m going to have to endure this up until release day, and then several months of public arguments from the people who inevitable loved it and the bitter dorks who loathed it but can’t just move on with their lives.
