Star Wars: The Force Awakens

star wars awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a great film! New imagery and vision by a new director brought Star Wars to a new generation. This film has similarities to the New Hope film, lets begin:

  • At the beginning of both films the Empire is searching for information in a invasion type manner against civilians believed to be apart of the Rebellion. In the New Hope, the Empire was searching for plans for the Death Star while in The Force Awakens, the Empire is searching for a map with Luke Skywalker’s location…
  • The main character in this film named Rey also originated on a desert type planet like Luke. Both characters are showcased as excellent pilots. Rey became more in tune with the Force way before Luke..
  • Finn and Rey escape the desert planet in the Millennium Falcon like Luke and Obi-Wan, but this time, the escapees where the pilots of that ship…
  • The ultimate threat of the Empire once again is a planet size weapon capable of destroying other planets. In the Force Awakens, this weapon was the size of an actual planet, with atmosphere and an Earth like landscape. The weapon on A New Hope was the size of a small moon. In both films, the Empire’s weapon is tested on planetary systems connected to the Resistance, a demonstration of their destructive power……

There were differences that left the movie interesting. Interesting enough to leave fans wanting the following films of this trilogy. Let’s begin: 

  • Han Solo is killed by his son, who happens to be the main villain of this film. Rey becomes Chewbacca’s new companion….
  • The villain Kylo Ren is the grandson of Darth Vader. His behavior is that of the early Anakin Skywalker…
  • Finn was apart of the Empire as a Stormtrooper, then later joined the Resistance…

Is the Sith Order gone or is this a new wave of the dark side? Will we ever see Luke Skywalker in action in the future? What will become of Finn?Star Wars The Force Awakens is a great beginning to a new era of Star Wars and a must see for everyone!
