It is finally happening.
Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens is releasing next year and we could not be more excited. Star Wars has been a cornerstone of science fiction that seems to be unique in its capacity to captivate audiences of all ages. I can think of no other major science fiction franchise that has endured for this long in the hearts and minds of its fans. With that being said, after the abysmal three prequels most fans were resolute that having completed six “episodes” of the franchise the ride was over. No one ever lost hope that someday someone might take the reigns and continue the story, but I doubt anyone thought it would actually happen. Today we are on the cusp of a Disney owned Star Wars universe that could reinvigorate the franchise and explode in the way Marvel has during the last decade. Very little is known about what this film could entail because the director, J.J Abrams, has a commitment to secrecy. Since J.J Abrams has always been a bigger Star Wars than Star Trek fan, and considering how well he did with the Trek franchise we should expect something incredible.
