The Star Wars saga continues with this seventh entry — the first under the Walt Disney Company umbrella. The film is the start of a new trilogy set after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983).
Insider’s tip: “Perhaps the greatest triumph of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is that it justifies the enormous hype. Working from a screenplay that he co-wrote with Michael Arndt and Lawrence Kasdan, director J. J. Abrams (Star Trek) brings fresh energy to the franchise while adhering to the storytelling values that made it matter in the first place” (Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch). “What a beautiful, thrilling, joyous, surprising and heart-thumping adventure this is” (Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times).
