I totally agree that the Fox fanfare is stuck in my mind as part of the Star Wars films and it will be strange to see these new films without that. With that said, it's probably less than thirty seconds of the movie, so once things get rolling does it really matter? These films need to rise or fall on their own, not because of whether or not they have the fanfare. My two cents is that these movies will suck, but not suck as bad as the prequels. I'm expecting an over-use of CGI and over-the-top action a la the new Star Trek movies.
