The Public Reacts: Star Wars, what's all the hype about?

Most people said that they were planning on going to see the movie and that tickets are selling out fast. 

They agreed that there is a lot of hype around the release, but that it was only to be expected.

When asked whether they thought the new movie would attract a new audience, one man said:

The general consensus around the mass merchandising was summed up by another man, who said, "you can never have too much of Star Wars".
