Three years into the Clone Wars, the Jedi rescue Palpatine from Count Dooku. As Obi-Wan pursues a new threat, Anakin acts as a double agent between the Jedi Council and Palpatine and is lured into a sinister plan to rule the galaxy.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a Wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle-station while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the Senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.

30 years after the defeat of Darth Vader and the Empire, Rey, a scavenger from the planet Jakku, finds a BB-8 droid that knows the whereabouts of the long lost Luke Skywalker. Rey, as well as a rogue stormtrooper and two smugglers, are thrown into the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the daunting legions of the First Order. Written by
At 1 hr. 42 mins, you can clearly see 3 X-wings get shot down by the cannons. However, when the movie cuts back to the resistance base, the officer stays that 2 X-wings have been shot down. He could have called in the first before the other two, but all of them were shot down in quick succession of each other, making that highly improbable. See more »
Lor San Tekka:
This will begin to make things right. I've traveled too far and seen too much to ignore the despair in the galaxy. Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.
Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for a long time.
Lor San Tekka:
Oh, the General? To me, she is royalty.
Well, she certainly is that.

Almost everyone in the world has heard of Star Wars; if not, congratulations on waking up from your coma. Everyone thinks that "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is great; those are the types of people who have been blinded by nostalgia. I am here to tell you that Star Wars VII is NOT good, but downright dull and unoriginal. J.J. Abrams may be a good Hollywood director, as he proved with "Super 8" and barely squeaked by with the 2009 "Star Trek" remake with Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. But Star Wars was definitely not supposed to be one of his movies.
Let me sum up the premise for you: Take the original Star Wars script from the 70's, put it in a blender for 2 seconds, and BOOM! Star Wars VII. The franchise was supposed to be 9 episodes long, but after the more recent flops staring Hayden Christensen, it was more or less put into hiatus. After Disney ousted George Lucas and bought the franchise from him, things will never be the same.
The dialogue feels like it was written by a Chimpanzee with an IQ slightly above room temperature. The acting was right on the line between "So bad it's good" to downright cringe worthy. And the story is just one big snooze fest. The only reason it has done so well is because of decades of pop culture references and worldwide appeal. This was just a poor attempt to make another billion by Disney.
