Like I said in the most recent episode of Turning This Car Around, I didn’t want to get my hopes up or get excited about a new Star Wars movie.
But I’ve watched all the trailers and even some of the ancillary videos and posts from varied media outlets. And recorded an extra very special episode with my fellow nerd, John Moltz:

I want this to be a good movie. I hope it’s a great movie for my kids.
