Honestly, that was at least a little bit helpful. I’m potentially seeing the movie tomorrow and I had originally planned to re-watch the first trilogy beforehand (I was very young when they came out). But I’m just gonna go in cold—I don’t remember a damn thing besides who the main people are and their relationships with each other.

I haven’t even watched a trailer and or read much about it on io9 (which is kind of a miracle, actually). I still think it’s gonna be awesome.
