My initial reaction: the visuals are BEAUTIFUL. I'm still really worried that we're going to get a film that's going to play too much to the Original Trilogy fan base and won't have any of the positives of the Prequel Trilogy (ie, the Jedi Order). My least favorite aspect of the Star Wars franchise is when the fun depends on you being a fan or astounded by the concept of alien cultures and spaceships and blasters, so if this focuses on Storm Troopers and the Millennium Falcon and we don't see a reformed Jedi Order, I'll be disappointed. That being said, we do get to see a brand new form of lightsaber that resembles a normal sword, so that's very interesting. I'm also still hoping that Domhnall Gleeson is playing Ben Skywalker.

We recorded a special podcast where a few of us elaborated on our thoughts. You can listen to it on iTunes, Stitcher or watch the YouTube video embedded below:
