I don't want characters that try to be "cool" or any knowing nods to the previous films - like a damn spaceship hiding on an asteroid / bigger ship.
I don't want any of the original cast to die.
I don't want to see the "human" side of stormtroopers, I don't want to see their faces (no hope of this if the latest rumours are to be believed)
Don't want Sith or any other Jedi except Luke... Certainly don't want dumb acrobatic twirly light saber fights. Keep it broadsword. And I don't want long jedi training scenes, talking about the Force.
Basically I don't want any reference to the PT.
I DO want the classic ships from the original trilogy, Tie Fighters, AT-AT's etc. A good Space battle would be cool, but something straight forward, not the cluttered mess of ROTS.
I want the films themselves to be made in a similar style to the original trilogy, meaning I want that Kurowsawa influence, not shakey cam, lens flare and rapid editing. I want The Searchers in space
I'm hopefull about the new film. I think JJ Abrams knows that a huge part of the attraction of the OT was not only the story and characters but the hardware, the way things looked and functioned. Even the Falcon had character. This appears to be the way they're going, using some of McQuarries designs and building real sets etc.
