I have seen the trailer, but haven't had time to analyse it in detail since I DL'ed it at work - and could only get the 320 version to boot, that bloody firewall hates me - but once everyone's left I'll crank up the volume (it's so nice being the only person in the company with a soundcard) and have a real good look. . . 8)

Sol, I have no problem with special effects...not a bit. In fact I loved the ground breaking effects in Star Wars and sat wide-eyed as the next movies carried that leading edge even further.

Part of the charm for me of Star Wars was the lack of CGI ...it gave the movie, big word alert, verisimilitude. Yoda just wouldn't have been the same done with CGI.

And by the way, I am not opposed to CGI per se, CGI being the computer animated stuff and not the modeling or use of large, multi-person operated creatures like Jabba the Hutt. But that is obvious isn't it.

But CGI that is noticeably CGI BUGS the heck out of me.

But, having seen all of like two minutes, I continue to wait and hope it blows my sock off.

*just seen the 480-version of the new trailer*

WOW...

Are they using models too, or is everything in CGI??

I downloaded Quicktime.
I went to the Star Wars site and downloaded the new trailer. . .

NOT exactly Star Wars RW? To quote my mother: "Surely you jest?"

But anyway, as an original Star Wars fan too young to remember the scenes from the original movie I saw, "The Phantom Menace" is going to sink "Titanic"! Star Wars IV, V, VI and I are going to be the most mememorable movies of the first century of motion pictures.
Yes, I like Star Trek. There have been some great movies and episodes but. . .

He'd need a way to get into orbit to do that.
