“It is inevitable. It is your destiny…”
Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)
When director George Lucas created the original Star Wars in 1977, he caught everyone’s attention; no one could look away from the sci-fi world he had created. The adventures of Luke, Princess Leia and Han Solo as they fought the Empire, its world-destroying battle-station and its leader Darth Vader kept viewers asking for more. This epic journey to discover the truth about yourself and defend what is right took audiences out of their seats and into a fantastic new reality.
Star Wars is here to stay; in 2012, the director announced the continuation of the Star Wars saga. The trailer for the seventh movie was released on October 19, 2015 and the movie is expected this December 18.
The Force Awakens is set approximately 30 years after the last Star Wars film, The Return of the Jedi, in which Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) battled Jabba the Hut and Darth Vader to save his friends in the Rebel Alliance and triumph over the Galactic Empire. Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), now known as General Organa, reaffirmed their love and teamed up with Chewbacca to defeat the evil emperor. After Darth Vader fell, there was peace at last (or so they thought). This next movie consists of three new leads: Finn (John Boyega), Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Poe (Oscar Isaac), who work together to defeat a new evil with the help of past protagonists Luke, Princess Leia and Han Solo.
This trailer will give any Star Wars fanatic goose bumps of anticipation. Hopefully the movie will be as memorable as its predecessors.
