the force awakens

The Star Wars bug has well and truly hit us all; it's even made its way onto the weather reports!

Yesterday, on the Channel 5 news, the weather woman somehow managed to fit in a whole load of Star Wars references into a one minute report. 

Some of our fave phrases used were, "If you Luke father west," "The force is strong though," and "Then tonight, the weather strikes back."

But there's way more other references you need to hear too… especially if you're feeling the Star Wars buzz.

So you don’t own a toy lightsaber, you always just assumed that Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker were love interests and you have never referred to your own unshaven state as being Chewbacca-esque.

If you agree to all the above then we can safely assume that you are not looking forward to Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens. But you HAVE heard about it, right? 

Whether you are a diehard fan living for December 17 or just wondering what all the fuss is about, here is why you should most definitely be excited about the new Star Wars.  

1. It’s a real sequel

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the new reboot is that is takes places thirty years after the events of the original trilogy. Having had to sit through three rather divisive prequels, we finally get to find out what happens to our original heroes.

2. The Cast

Apart from the return of Harrison Ford as our favourite ‘love to hate’ cocky pilot, Han Solo, the new films boast a load of fresh talent. And with fresh talent comes new characters.

Some of the top-billed names include Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis and our very own Domhnall Gleeson.

3. The Costumes

The costumes from the original picture have become pretty iconic (those Princess Leia buns anyone?) so you can be sure that a load of effort has been put into the design of the costumes in the new films.

We can’t wait to figure out which ones will make it into cinematic history – and, of course, which one we will attempt to recreate next Halloween.

4. The Villains

Forget Darth, the new film comes with a whole new band of villians.

There is Domhnall Gleeson playing an evil general-like character and Andy Serkis playing Supreme Leader Snoke, a sort of omnipresent overlord.

But the villain that has most fans losing their minds is Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, pictured above with his CRAZY cross-shaped lightsaber.

5. There are a lot more coming

Disney Studios has announced that it is releasing not only a new trilogy but a new spin-off franchise of films. That means that there will probably be a new Star Wars film out every year for the foreseeable future.

You might as well jump on the bandwagon.

6. The trailer is pretty AMAZING

Okay, we are gonna officially stop talking and let the pretty epic trailer do all the talking.
