Star Wars 7 or Star Wars: The Force Awakens (also known as Star Wars Episode VII) is an upcoming epic space opera film directed by J. J. Abrams. It’s scheduled to be released on December 18, 2015? Are you excited? For sure! Because we’ll meet some of our beloved characters as Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Leia, C-3PO, R2-D2 and some new heroes and villains. Who is your favorite? Vote now!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the seventh installment in the episodic Star Wars film series and the story is set approximately 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983). Furthermore, it’s the first film in the planned third Star Wars trilogy announced after The Walt Disney Company’s acquisition of Lucasfilm in October 2012. Thus, we’ll have fun for long!
In July 2013, John Williams was confirmed to compose the score, and he stated that he would return to themes from the previous films.
“It’s all a continuation of an initial set of ideas. It’s a bit like adding paragraphs to a letter that’s been going on for a number of years. Starting with a completely new film, a story that I don’t know, characters that I haven’t met, my whole approach to writing music is completely different—trying to find an identity, trying to find melodic identifications if that’s needed for the characters, and so on.”

Han Solo (Harrison Ford); Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher); Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill); C-3PO (Anthony Daniels); R2-D2 (Kenny Baker); Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew); Finn (John Boyega); Rey (Daisy Ridley); Kylo Ren (Adam Driver); Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac); Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) or General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson)?
About the new characters:
Finn (John Boyega). In the Star Wars universe, Finn is a Human male Sith Master, who operated as a terrorist during the final years of the New Sith Wars. However, rumors indicate he may become a Jedi in the new Star Wars film.
Rey (Daisy Ridley). According to the actress, Rey is self-sufficient and solitary, but “meets another character” and sees her adventure begin.
Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). He’s a pilot in the Resistance, the organization that – presumably – replaced the Rebel Alliance of the latter prequel trilogy and the original trilogy of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis). Snoke would be a Force-sensitive character and looking on his face, you can guess he’s not one of the good guys.
General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson). Hux was a male individual who served as a general in the First Order almost 30 years following the Battle of Endor. He commanded Starkiller Base, the primary base of operations for the First Order.
The Force Awakens is scheduled for release on December 18, 2015 in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D, which will be over ten years after the release of the previous live-action Star Wars film, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
