Jeebus it’s dueling franchises today as the actual title of Star Wars Vii, the very first SEQUEL was released. And it’s…
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS
OR SW:TFA as we will all call it, because “The Force Awakens” is a horrible title.
“Man, remember the closing scene in The Force Awakens? It was RADICAL.”
It should have been called RISING FORCE. Everyone would like to say that!
“What are you doing this weekend, dude?”
“Going to see Rising Force again!!!”
Possible plot lines? The force may awaken in youngsters or oldsters. Or Han Solo, who is battling broken leg and has trouble standing up let alone awakening.
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS opens on December 18th, 2015, a year and a day later than THE HOBBIT THE BATTLE OF FIVE ARMIES, so we’ll have some continuity there. It stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie, along with returning stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and Warwick Davis.
