It’s been about a year since Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens was released. When this movie was announced, most Star Wars fans were pumped for it, but also very anxious. Would it be any good? Would they rely too much on past characters? Who shot first? However, it lived up to the hype. Like every good action/adventure film, it was fun. It felt like the audience was a bunch of estranged high school buddies reunited. We laughed, cried, and got nerdy together. Nostalgia at its finest.
