Star Wars - The Force Awakens Trailer REVIEW

We have been on Star Wars black out like it's 1983! Which means we cannot lookup anything relating to the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens unless it's by 1983 methods. The info has to be obtained only if it is in a magazine, on Entertainment Tonight or a TV/Radio spot or on a billboard. If it's on the internet, we can't look at it. That includes trailers! So, we weren't able to watch the new Star Wars trailer until we saw it at the theater before a movie as it was meant to be. We are doing this because we feel it will make the experience much better when we finally see the movie next December. So, when James and Mikey went to see the Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies, they finally got to see the trailer. Here are their thoughts and opinions. Enjoy! December 22, 2014
