Interested to see what they show in this Trailer as I remember the TFA Trailer during MNF was great and really showed alot. I hope they find the right balance of showing enough of Luke to get us stoked but not too much to spoil it.

Re: Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (12/15/17, W/D: Rian Johnson)

seeing Han and Chewie again, with Han saying "we're home" was just an incredible moment for me, having long resigned myself to the fact that I'd never witness the original characters in a movie again, and especially Harrison Ford. I can't quite think of anything they could do this time around to top that for me, but I'm very excited to see it.

Was the skin removable from Luke's mechanical hand?

Fixed.

Oh no. Characters don't have to be in the movie in order to get a toy or even be heavily featured in pre-release material. Thanks TFA! Constable Zuvio, anybody?

It doesn't get entirely get burnt off though. Pretty sure it's just a blast spot on the top of his mechanical hand. Fairly minor thing but I do wonder why it's revealed entirely now. Maybe he's had other battles or something.

So they can replace the hand with a mechanical one within a couple of hours after losing it, but if the prosthetic gets damaged, you're stuck for life?

If only there was SOME way to connect an HDTV to the Internet. Maybe even have it run apps like YouTube. If only...

That would kind of SMART, don't you think?

I understand how that all works. My point is I can watch the trailer when it premieres on MNF on my 60" HDTV, so why would I wait for it to hit the internet? Now the first TLJ Teaser was released at noon time when I was at work, so I watched it on my Smartphone that day.

From what I hear it won't stream on the internet until after it premieres at Halftime. Trust me if it hit the internet first, then I wouldn't care about the Football game but that's not the case.
