There has been an awakening, and audiences have felt it the world over with the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

The latest installment in Star Wars’s beloved legacy has recently become the highest-grossing film of all time domestically, having raked in nearly $800 million since its release, knocking James Cameron’s Avatar down to second place.

The Force Awakens picks up decades after the original trilogy with a new generation of characters: Poe Dameron, the Republic’s best pilot; BB-8, Poe’s droid companion; Finn, formerly storm trooper FN-2187; and Rey, a scavenger with an unknown past. This new band of heroes teams up to take on Darth Vader’s self-proclaimed successor Kylo Ren and find the last living Jedi Luke Skywalker, who has recently gone into hiding, but they’re not alone; they are joined by characters from the original trilogy such as Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess (now General) Leia, C3PO, and R2-D2.

Episode VII is exactly what fans expect from a Star Wars movie; it’s action packed, mysterious, and full of adventure. Director J.J. Abrams has announced plans for a sort of prequel being released this year and Episode VIII is to be released in 2017. You don’t want to miss it, so go check out Star Wars in a theater not so far far away….
