DEC. 17, 2015: Will Friday ever get here? That’s what so many die hard Star Wars fans are saying. This Friday, December 18th, 2015, The Force Awakens will finally be released. Star Wars is a long anticipated movie that fans are dying to see. The last movie made was back in 1983, when so many of us weren’t even born. So how are so many young people fans? Well, that’s easy, OUR PARENTS! Since Walt Disney Company acquired Lucas Film for $4.05 billion and announced three new Star Wars films, fans have been literally sitting on the edge of their seats ready for this first film’s release. Tickets are selling fast online as the lines are sure to be wrapped around the theatres all across the country. For the movie’s premiere in the UK reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. This is a must see film for the entire family this holiday season, so “May the Force Be With You!”
