The Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer will make you believe in metal lunchboxes!

April 16, 2015

I was busy today and didn’t have a chance to post this long-awaited trailer, which features the much hungered for return of Han Solo. As far as commentary, I offer only this: Not that long ago kids’ lunchboxes were made of metal. They were die-cast and solid, with a gorgeous image on their sculpted lid of whatever cartoon or movie or TV show tickled the child’s fancy. They made the peanut butter sandwiches taste like the finest meal ever prepared. Then, before we knew it, before we even realized what was happening, lunchboxes were suddenly made of plastic. They were light, flimsy, and the contoured image was replaced by a simple sticker on the generic lid, one which frayed and peeled as soon as you started using it.

This trailer makes one feel that maybe, just maybe, we’re getting the metal lunchbox back. May the metaphor be with you.

    I don’t even know why you need a metaphor, it’s so obvious this trailer screams “metal lunchbox!”
