THE FORCE IS PRETTY STRONG IN THIS ONE
Star Wars, even people who have never seen the movies could probably tell you the basic plot by this point. It is both a truly beloved cinematic series to hundreds of thousands of people and a great example of just how quickly you can ruin something like that.
If Hollywood learned anything from that, it’s “Don’t give directors exclusive merchandizing and sequel rights.”
Despite the fact that George Lucas was in no way affiliated with this seventh film, people were still a bit worried. Would we get something like the original trilogy, or would it be more of the same nonsense from the prequels?
Thankfully this one leans closer to the original three and it turned out quite good.
