    Following the announcement of the new Star Wars Episode VII title (The Force Awakens) Infowars.com reporter Rob Dew examines the fact that even though the prequels left a lot to be desired in style, acting and character, they did expose a common tactic used by governments through history, the false flag attack.

    More of a Star Trek guy but loved Star Wars growing up. I'm not going to lie, seeing the Falcon again with Han and Chewie has me pretty excited. Hopefully the franchise is in good hands with Abrams.

    When Episode IV came out in 1977 (at the time it was Episode I) I saw it 67 unique times at Lowe's Astor Plaza in Manhattan. When The Empire Strikes back came out in 1980 I was on leave while in the Air Force and waited nearly 48 hours for the first showing at the same Lowe's Astor Plaza. In 1983 when the Return of the Jedi came out I was still in the Air Force and was #2 in line, again at Lowe's Astor Plaza. I saw Episodes I, II, and III at midnight showings and plan to be at Episode VII on opening night.

    I remember watching the first Star Wars when I was 12! That big Star Destroyer rolled across the screen....I was a converted geek on the spot! To top it off my birthday is May 4th "Star Wars day"... May the 4th be with you! ;)

    True story .... happened yesterday (Friday)

    I was watching the news before work and I saw a young man giving a movie review - well, a TRAILER review - of the new Star Wars 7 coming out in December. I didn't know anything about this - let alone have never pondered over the cast.

    I LOVE episodes 4, 5, and 6 which us old heads fawned over back in the day. I couldn't really get in to 1, 2, and 3 which came out a few years ago.

    Anyway, this guy was talking about how he CRIED over the trailer and how emotional everyone was watching. I was like - "What?!?! Crying?!?! Who cries over movie trailers? Honestly - suck it up. Stop with the drama. What a dweeb. What a nerd. What a moron!!"

    Then the guy said, "Let's show the audience part of the trailer."

    And then a hand picks up a broken and burned Darth Vader mask and a voice begins talking about how his father had the force, how he has it, and how his sister has it.

    My ears perked up!

    And then an old and grayed Han Solo (Harrison Ford himself!) steps off a flying craft with Chewie and says "Chewie! We're home!!!"

    I STARTED CRYING. For REAL!!! Yes, I am a dweeb, a nerd, and a moron.

    I cannot WAIT until December!!

    William Shatner tweeted: "Oh and what was with that Han Solo line at the end? It sounded like it was lifted from the end of the Wizard of Oz! Toto we're home! "

    Hope to see it! I adored the Star Wars movies.....as an 11 or 12 year old my mouth hung open as those grandiose opening scenes...the music, the neat scrolling story line, the amazing magic of being transported to a galaxy far far away.....

    The only this better would be the Second Coming! That would make Star Wars look like kindergarten!
