Number of Times Seen – 1 (17 Dec 2015)
Brief Synopsis – The further adventures set in a Galaxy Far Far Away where a new generation of heroes continue the fight of our heroes from the previous episodes.
My Take on it – How does one describe the feeling of finally seeing the movie that we have all been waiting for for over 32 years.
This is the kind of movie that we have been waiting to see because it fits into the canon of the Star Wars “world” so well.
I personally am a big fan of the prequels, but after seeing this movie, they feel a bit less connected to the look and feel of the SW Universe than this one does, which is a bit interesting since those movies were conceived by George Lucas and this one wasn’t.
It was great to once again see old faces of friends long gone and to meet the new generation of heroes and villains who bring new life to the Galaxy far far away that we all know and love.
The only problem that I can say I had with this movie is that it leaves us wanting to see and know so much more about what has happened over the last 30 years in their “world” and also to see what will happen in the future episodes being created.
This is both good and bad, but that’s the nature of the beast.
JJ Abrams have done a wonderful job reintroducing us to their world and I can’t wait to see this (at least) once more in the theater (with 2 of my sons) and many more times over the months and years to come.
Bottom Line – Worth the 32 year wait. Definitely worthy of being part of the Star Wars movie canon. Loved seeing old faces and meeting new characters who bring life to that galaxy far far away. Leaves us wanting much more which is both good and bad. Looking forward to seeing this again in the theater and many more times afterwards. Highly Recommended!
