They’re back and bigger than ever. Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens is set to hit theaters around the world this month. It is already being declared the biggest movie event of the year, perhaps even the decade.
Nearly 40 years ago, a little known filmmaker named George Lucas had an idea for a science fiction space movie. The characters, images and stories have become part of the global mythology ever since.
Episode VII, set at a time immediately after the original three films, includes several of the stars of those first blockbuster films. Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill all reprise the roles that they made iconic back in the 1970’s. This film is directed by J.J. Abrams, who has also been entrusted to bring back to life the Star Trek legacy, as well as producing many other legendary shows like Lost, Mission Impossible, and Alias.
Not only will the new film feature familiar human faces, but the original droids, with their original actors, will also be returning. C3PO and R2-D2 will be joined by a new droid, BB-8.
The film is being held from critics who have not been able to see it and post reviews, so no one really knows what it looks like. Nonetheless, Star Wars fans around the world are polishing their Stormtrooper costumes and planning Star Wars parties to celebrate this massive cinematic event.
