Introduction

Topic Overview

In the days where you’d wait to see something on telly as opposed to watching whatever you want, whenever you want (wherever you want), Christmas would be the time where there’d be a Star Wars film on. Bloody Star Wars. Everyone has seen Star Wars. The ‘western in space’. The film spawned a plethora of sequels some good, some awful and of course, the merchandise which according to the Guinness Book of World Records, is the most successful instance of toys, tat and geeky collectables sold off the back of a bunch of movies. And there’s a brand new one. It’s been impossible to ignore the military campaign of marketing and hype carrying ‘The Force Awakens’ and early reports (at least in my ear) are all positive and the box office has literally exploded. Could be because George Lucas isn’t in the driving seat. Could also be because three beloved main protagonists from the first salvo of films have reprised their roles. That’ll be weird seeing them all old. Am I ready to see a 60 year old Princess Leia in that sexy skimpy outfit?
