The power of the force is strong at Heritage as the new Star Wars episode seven, “The Force Awakens” comes to theaters on December 18, 2015.
Students at Heritage are excited but somewhat concerned about the film. The film has new characters, such as Finn and Rey, the new heroes of the story. There is also a new design to the story, new weapons and new vehicles. What student are most curious to know is who is and what is Darth Kylo Ren and what is his story and why did he create a new Empire called the First Order. A new villain and a new design for the Stormtroopers adds a different look from the original movies.
The movie is bringing back some of the old characters which students look forward to seeing. Luke Skywalker, Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C3po and R2-D2 are all back. Students are curious on how they aged over the years, and they want to know what’s happening now in the Star Wars universe.
“I’m not a big Star Wars fan but it seems all I hear is Star Wars this and Star Wars that,” says Miguel Sedillos ‘17.
“ I am excited for the new Star Wars to come out and if I could describe the trailer in one world it would be ‘powerful’ however some of the scenes in the trailer did not make any sense,” says Jonathan Cheng ’17.
