Forget the prequels, you must, according to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens honest trailer

(Lucasfilm)

The Honest Trailers team knows just how excited fans are for Star Wars: The Force Awakens to arrive, and even though they had similar expectations before The Phantom Menace premiered, their latest effort is still filled with plenty of hope for a brighter future.

The Force Awakens’ honest trailer takes that hope and puts it all behind “some new nerd [who’s] directing now,” as J.J. Abrams’ entry in the Star Wars series fixes what George Lucas started. And midichlorians, the origial trilogy special editions, and Jar Jar Binks are just a few of the things on the long list of what the Screen Junkies crew hopes The Force Awakens can make fans forget.

Watch the honest trailer above (and the real one below), and for more on the film before its Dec. 18 debut, pick up a copy of EW’s Holiday Movie Preview, read what Gwendoline Christie has to say about her character Captain Phasma, and see a bit of the Battle of Jakku in the latest Star Wars Battlefront trailer.
