The results are in, and the first complete reviews for the new ‘Star Wars’ film, The Force Awakens, have deemed it as “a triumph” and “instant classic”. In fact, the film was given an abundance of 5 star ratings by several UK newspapers. JJ Abrams’s tremendously hyped seventh instalment in the blockbuster series hits theatres, world wide, tomorrow (one week until Christmas!).
Some would claim that the reputation of the franchise had been tarnished considerably by the fairly unpopular and mediocre prequel trilogy of 1999-2005, all directed by creator George Lucas. However, ten years after the last film release, fans of the original trilogy are predicting The Force Awakens will be the best movie of all time- a pretty redeeming title to say the least.
The Guardian stated the film ‘shows itself a movie in the spirit of the original trilogy, which ended with Return of the Jedi in 1983‘, which will be sure to make avid devotees of the initial space-opera very delighted.
Considering the film’s release date is so close to the holidays, it is more than appropriate to spend Christmas with Hans, Yoda and Princess Leia; and don’t worry, Retro Festive has you covered!
