Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Everyone has been waiting anxiously for the new Star Wars movie since what seems forever, and it's finally here TOMORROW!

This move takes place 30 years after the defeat of the Galactic Empire; Han Solo, played by Harrison Ford, and his allies fight against Kylo Ren, played by Adam Driver, and his army of Stormtroopers to stop them from ruling the galaxy.

But will Disney do as great a job as the other Star Wars films? On one hand it's DISNEY, so of course they can do an amazing job! However, Star Wars is a classic that holds high standards and expectations...

"He took a worshiped pop-culture franchise with a rabid legion of disciples, treated it with respect, and made it matter again. ... When The Force Awakens ends, it feels bittersweet simply because you so badly want to get to the next chapter. So, yes, the wait is over. But now a new waiting game begins …” —Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly

What’s more, Abrams has united the original cast with a group of newcomers who mesh seamlessly with their elders, in an ensemble effort that brims with the chops and brio of a great jam session.” —Ann Hornaday, the Washington Post (bold added)

“The big news about ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ is — spoiler alert — that it’s good! Despite the prerelease hype, it won’t save the world, not even Hollywood, but it seamlessly balances cozy favorites — Harrison Ford, ladies and gentlemen — and new kinetic wows along with some of the niceties that went missing as the series grew into a phenomenon, most crucially a scale and a sensibility that is rooted in the human.” —Manohla Dargis, the New York Times
