Star Wars The Force Awakens: Definitely more than expected in a Disney franchise

Release Date 18 December 2015 (USA)

Plot

30 years after the defeat of Darth Vader and the Empire, Rey, a scavenger from the planet Jakku, finds a BB-8 droid that knows the whereabouts of the long lost Luke Skywalker. Rey, as well as a rogue stormtrooper and two smugglers, are thrown into the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the daunting legions of the First Order (“Star Wars The Force Awakens”, IMDb).

It is surprisingly good even though it may not be as spectacular as the original George Lucas trilogy. The recent version managed to stay loyal to the concept of the original trilogy, with portrayals of characters similar to what is expected among the audience and the story line, although set 30 years later, is easily understood as the continuation of the last film in the previous saga (Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi). It is not as cheesy in contrast with what I, as an audience, initially thought. The action fight scenes are realistic and the fast paced plot progression made the movie more entertaining than drugging.

I heavily admit that I am attracted to Adam Driver’s, the actor who plays Kylo Ren, hot and gorgeous looks. However, my favorite characters will always be Chewbacca and the two droids (R2D2 and C3PO).
