With the release of J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, viewers old and young; first timer watchers and rabid fans were able to enjoy the reinvigorated saga that introduced both a new set of heroes, but also brought back old favorites.
Returning to the filmmaking style of the original trilogy, combining practical and digital effects and filming in studios and on location, The Force Awakens is both kinetically exciting and warmly nostalgic.
New cast members include Daisy Ridley as Rey, who leaves the safety of her home on Jakku to discover her destiny; John Boyega as Finn, a Storm Trooper who defects to The Resistance; Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, the best pilot in the galaxy; and Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, heir apparent to Darth Vader.
They join original cast members Harrison Ford as Han Solo, Mark Hamill as Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker and Carrie Fisher as onetime Princess, now General Leia Organa.
Adorable droid BB-8 joins the Wookiee, Chewbacca, protocol droid C-3PO and astromech droid R2-D2 in the new adventure.
