Star Wars: The Force Awakens

I know most people have probably seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens by now. (I won't say all, I know there are a few people who haven't seen it yet.) I also saw it a while ago. So, I'll just throw down a smattering of thoughts, because I am so excited by this new revitalization of the Star Wars franchise.

I love Rey. I love Finn. I really liked General Hux. I liked what we learned about this generation of Stormtroopers. They totally made BB-8 the most adorable droid ever. Now, knowing who Kyli Ren is, I know who Rey is and I can't wait to see if my prediction is true. I loved Han and Leia. Han! I wouldn't have minded a little more Luke, but I understand the choice. I can't wait to find out more about what happened between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, as I think there is so much more to learn.

I think J.J. Abrams took what was amazing about episodes 4, 5 & 6, and infused that into the new movie. I also feel like where the older characters are in their lives now is a believable progression from where they were left at the end of Return of the Jedi. I would have liked a little more at the end, but they have to make us excited to see the next film, right? I am so excited to see where Rey and Finn take us next.


  1. It was my favourite Star Wars movie out of the 7.

    1. I don't know if I have a favourite... the first one (Ep 4)?

      I did love this movie though. I'm ridiculously excited for more Star Wars movies, the one after this and the spin-off.
