The apparently high dihedral is to provide nacelle/ground clearance. Much of the dihedral is actually wing shear (a variation of wing height with span) over the inboard wing. This is common (look at the DC-10 from the rear). Stall speeds of the 777 are similar to the 767 and other transports, around 130 to 140 kts for landing flaps. The 777 IS impressive, you'll not mistake it for a 767. Its BIG!
