Star Wars, the new trailer, and joy


That is the new trailer for Star Wars.

I haven’t felt really excited about Star Wars since I saw Return of the Jedi in the movie theater as a kid.

This, this trailer filled me with joy.

Hope, and expectation, and joy.

I hope you watch it and feel the same.

Oh, and the next time you hear some misguided person claim that “science fiction these days is all about women and people of color and there’s no joy and excitement in science fiction anymore,” make them watch this trailer.

That’s women, people of color, excitement, joy, and the sci-fi-iest of all sci-fucking-fi, right there.
