What We Learned From The Final Star Wars: The Force Awakens Poster

Right now, my biggest fear regarding the new Star Wars movie is that it might wind up mirroring the storyline of the original trilogy too closely.  This might not be so much of a new trilogy as a backdoor remake.  The trailer seems to present us with another masked villain like Vader, many of the same ships with gently updated designs, loads of Stormtroopers, a sand planet that is apparently home to a protagonist who is stuck in a dull life dreaming for more…

I'm not hating.  I am just point out that so far, we have yet to see any wholly original elements in the movie trailer or posters.
