I am excited cause seems like it will have all the things in it to work... but the recent movies the books and comics are almost required to fully get all of the scenes or information. Going to have to wait for the Road to Episode Nine series of books and novelization.
Would have been nice to see a completely original story arc for this part of Star Wars. I get the homage thing, but it is more than that and Val is right I am afraid.
The only thing left is who gets to say, "Rey, I am your father".
Having said all that, a new Skywalker is interesting and lets hope something more original comes in later (if they kick on with this). And I must admit I got the wonderful chills down my spine when I saw the wreckage of the Death Star and hearing the Emperor's evil laugh.
