The gif is too large/long to be embedded here (and already posted in the SW News thread - though worthy of a re-post here) and also another look…
 

‘this is what @starwars fandom is all about’:-

That warms the cold recesses of my heart.

And I imagine all the bad guys were struggling to stay in character.

4K restoration on Star Wars

I’ve streamed 4K HDR from Amazon, VUDU, and Movies Anywhere, and it looks great. Definitely better than a 1080p blu-ray and almost as good as a 4K UHD disc. But I’ve yet to stream anything from anyone that sounds as great as a disc.

Still, if you can stream 4K HDR, just do it! I remember the old days of trying to rotate the antenna on the roof to make the picture stop rolling, so I think all this streaming is great!

That wasn’t the antenna’s fault, it was a bad vertical control knob. 😛

When I was a kid, I would get up early to watch Hanna Barbera’s World Of Super Adventure on the kitchen tv, which somehow picked up the signal from a distant New York station so long as I held onto the rabbit ears with one hand.

It could just be a force vision. Imagine if this shot had been in the ESB trailer.

Which means that Luke sees himself in Vader. The Darth Rey shot of the new trailer is featuring a look and a weapon Rey has no reason to imagine (ie if it was a Dagobah sequence, she would picture herself as Ren, not as something new).

She saw places in her TFA Force vision she’d never been to let alone seen before, why is this different? I don’t think the rules on Force visions are written on stone tablets anywhere.

We see the Falcon and other Rebel ships come out of Hyperspace in a similar misty area and Finn in the Falcon’s cockpit seems to be looking at the ghost fleet based on what little we see outside the window behind him. And I just now noticed Y-Wings and B-Wings in that shot!

It may just be a reserve of ships long forgotten after the Empire fell, as those who knew about it were probably dead or didn’t know it’s exact location. Space being really big and all. Maybe I’ll get to see an SD with a rebel logo painted on the hull after all!

Rey and Kylo are definitely battling on the wreckage of the DS. You can see a laser turret on the left side of the shot.
