A new “Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens” trailer has appeared! And, as was fated, we are here to deconstruct it within an inch of its life. Dark Side IKEA end tables! John Boyega quotes us the odds! Bespoke evil ships! And is that a glimmer in your eye, or just some lens flare? Plus we give some love to BB8, everyone’s favorite robotic soccer ball.
I recently finally caved and picked up1 the original Star Wars trilogy, which is why a few months later they’re announcing that all six Star Wars movies are coming to iTunes.
So if you were holding out waiting until Star Wars came out on digital, you’re welcome.
At $24.99CDN each, it’s not cheap to pick up the entire set. You can buy the entire set on blu-ray for $105CDN so it’s frustrating that with digital, we’re paying more instead of less. Less packaging, less boxes to ship, less trucks to pay for delivery and yet we’re paying almost twice as much on digital.
Apple’s put a bundle of all 6 together: Buy the Star Wars Digital Movie Collection for $125CDN.

It’s not a huge surprise that these came out now given that episode 7 is being released in December, 2015. It still boggles my mind that there’s a new Star Wars coming out in my lifetime. And that it might actually be good.
Technically I got it for Christmas, but I did ask for it.↩
See Obi-Wan is playing the long con. Sure he’s old and can’t do it, but with the right manipulation he creates a guided lightsaber wielding missile aimed straight at the Vader.
Pretty good theory for what Obi-Wan was doing hanging out in the desert from someone on Reddit.
