Cue John Williams and his orchestra – Star Wars is back! Bah-bam-ba-ba-ba-bah-bam…
Ok, not so fast. Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens is not scheduled for release until December 18, 2015 – an entire year from now!
At least the first teaser trailer was released this week so we can have something to start drooling over.
For hard core fans, this is going to be worth the wait because some old friends from the original Star Wars (1977) will be back – Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Lea), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Anthony Daniels (C3PO).
Yes, the cast is much older (Harrison Ford broke his foot on the set of the Millennium Falcon during filming) but die hard fans, and there are many, seem to have placed their faith in ‘the force’ behind Disney’s vision for the film (Disney Company acquired Lucas film in 2012) and director J.J. Abrams (Star Trek, Mission Impossible).
