I think you just nailed it perfectly Dre with “cinematic inbreeding” being the most efficiently accurate way of explaining the ST’s constant borrowing and repurposing of the OT along with a near constant appeal to nostalgia in so much that the latest trailer uses pretty much half of its runtime for actual OT and PT footage with the OT footage itself making up around a third of the total runtime.
So a 9 film saga trailer (even though its more of a sizzle reel exclusively for D23), that shows clips from the films in release order (ending with new clips from Ep9) , uses a third of its runtime to show the OT (3 films out of 9 turns out to be a third 😉 ) and this is supposed to show how Disney is constantly trying to appeal to nostalgia?
Yes as generally trailers for movies mostly show footage for the actual movie it’s for. It’s been obvious from the start that Disney are leaning extremely heavily on OT nostalgia and this is just the super obvious cherry on top.
Regarding the 1/3 argument (3 out of 9 movies), the PT would also need to take 1/3 of the runtime if that were the case instead of just 1/10. The actual footage lengths are around:
OT - ~43sec (including the opening OT music)
PT - 12sec
ST - 1min ~5sec (excluding “DECEMBER”)
If this was a “saga trailer” as you term it and not a massive appeal to nostalgia then it would indeed make sense to split the footage somewhat equally but such is not the case with the feature film taking the largest piece with the OT not far behind and the PT getting a cursory glimpse.
I understand Dre wants to get this thread back on topic so Ill keep replying in another thread if one is started.
