I have been so excited about the new Star Wars The Force Awakens! It has been far too long since the last Star Wars came out! When I found out I was going to be able to see the premiere before the movie hit the theaters, I was beside myself! Mr. Bear and Allie Kat were so very jealous, as I couldn’t bring a guest and the screening was TOP SECRET!
I was so very curious about the new movie. I knew they were going to bring back some of the original cast and I was over the moon about that! Some of the previous Star Wars movies that introduced new characters, such as Attack of the Clones didn’t resonate with me as the original trilogy did. I have to say that this was my favorite of the Star Wars series, since the Return of the Jedi in the 1980’s. This movie really brought out my inner-kid-excitement. What a delight it was!
There’s all the components of the perfect Star Wars story: there’s a love story, there’s good vs. evil, there’s witty rhetoric, there’s action, there’s suspense—Where’s Luke? Best of all, there’s Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, C3PO, Chewbacca, R2D2, Han Solo, AND THE MILLENNIUM FALCON! What more can you ask for? This movie hit all the marks for me. There was something that seemed so much more familiar with this movie than in the past few Star Wars movies. It felt like having a dinner, with all my favorite guests—-only with lots of fast-flying, stormtroopers, explosions, and gunfire.
I feel in love with Rey, BB8, and Finn, three of the Star Wars series newest characters. Rey, is a tough scavenger, that unwittingly gets tangled up in the Resistance, simply by chance. It turns out that she’s quite a force to be reckoned with (See what I did there? Force. Uh em. Moving on).
Finn flees the First Order, after leaving his post as a Storm Trooper and accidently joins the Resistance. BB8, the latest droid character in Star Wars will be sure to find a place in your heart. The trio joins the search for Luke Skywalker, whose location has been a mystery since starting a Jedi academy, where one of his Jedi apprentices betrays him.
Is this the must see movie of 2015? 2016? I think so! I really enjoyed the movie. It was well-done and the while the movie raises still more questions than it answers questions, some surprises are revealed. There’s a lot more to this story and the ending does lay the framework for the next movie to come in the series, leaving you wanting much, much more Star Wars! Do they find Luke? Does the Resistance defeat the First Order? Will R2D2 come back? Will the Jedi’s have a revival?
Sorry, no spoilers here. You’ll have to see the movie for yourself! I can say that you won’t be disappointed!
