The wait is over! Star Wars: The Force Awakens is here!
Set 30 years later, after Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) is missing. He created a map for his sister, Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) to find him but she must find him before the First Force, led by Dark Vader’s mini me Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) finds him to destroy the last Jedi in existence.
The map falls into the hands of newcomers to the movie Rey (Daisy Ridley), who is a fierce scavenger from Jabba, and Finn (John Boyega) who escaped the First Force and wants to do some good for once in his life. Will Rey and Finn be able to return take the map to Princess Leia and the Resistance in time for them to find Luke Skywalker before the First Force?
Without giving away too much of the plot, because you should really go see this in theaters and enjoy the full experience, this movie is AMAZING! The plot is somewhat predictable, like most Star Wars movies, but there are some plot twists that’ll keep you intrigued. More than that, the graphics, sound effects and everything in-between is everything you’d hope for in a 2016 Star Wars movie.
I know that there are quite a few of people out there who are skeptical of watching this film because they don’t really follow the Star Wars movies and they’re worried that they won’t understand what is going on. I can gladly say that this film’s plot doesn’t depend too much on previous movies. As long as you know that Luke Skywalker is a Jedi, Princess Leia is Luke’s sister and Han solo is Leia’s lover, you’ll do just fine. Now you’re set to watch this epic movie unfold!
Action: You can never get tired of watching fighter ships flying around and shooting each other. This happens a few times in Star Wars: The Force Awakens so, if you can, I would suggest buying D-Box tickets to this movie and literally “feeling the force” when there are action scenes.
Emotional: Rey has some abandonment issues so it’s great to see her character grow emotionally as the movie goes on. She finds comfort in Han Solo (Harrison Ford), thinking of him as the father she never had, but she also grows to like Finn (minor spoil alert).
Comedy: This is not a comedy by any means, but there are comedic moments through-out the film that literally made the audience laugh out loud a few times. I mean, Chewbacca is hilarious.
