No one really knows what Star Wars: The Force Awakens is about except that it opens thirty years after the events of Return of the Jedi. After defeating the Galactic Empire, all is not seemingly well in the galaxy far, far away.
A new threat has emerged in the form of possibly new Death Star called the Star Killer Base and there are new villains in the fold, in the form of Kylo Ren, who wields a light sabre like a Sith Lord and General Hux. Hope however comes in the form of mysterious scavenger named Rey and Finn, a StormTrooper who’s evidently deserted the First Order.
As the new young heroes attempt to mount an offensive against the new threat, familiar allies return to the fold, namely legendary space pirate Han Solo and his trusty co-pilot Chewbacca.
