Three decades after the Empire's defeat, a new threat arises in the militant First Order. Stormtrooper defector Finn and spare parts scavenger Rey are caught up in the Resistance's search for the missing Luke Skywalker.
Three years into the Clone Wars, the Jedi rescue Palpatine from Count Dooku. As Obi-Wan pursues a new threat, Anakin acts as a double agent between the Jedi Council and Palpatine and is lured into a sinister plan to rule the galaxy.
After a daring mission to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt, the rebels dispatch to Endor to destroy a more powerful Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke struggles to help Vader back from the dark side without falling into the Emperor's trap.
After the rebels are overpowered by the Empire on their newly established base, Luke Skywalker begins Jedi training with Yoda. His friends accept shelter from a questionable ally as Darth Vader hunts them in a plan to capture Luke.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a Wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle-station while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the Senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.

Likely the last time I pay to watch a Star Wars movie
In many ways visually stunning, but I cannot for my life believe the many raving reviews. They are simply not credible.
The visuals are like 10 layers of coatings on a turd not even polished.
I said I would wait to judge JJ Abrams Force awakens until I'd see the next movie in the franchise, because there were things I liked, and things I didn't.
But this next installment spun off on just about everything I didn't like. And has so many flaws I cannot possibly list them all.
They managed to gut just about everything that made the original trilogy great, more interested in adding whatever they can merchandise, instead of a coherent movie.
They dole out force powers like it is candy, the once so mysterious force is everywhere it seems, no longer a hardwon ability that you need to work for. Last Jedi? Heck,everyones a Jedi! Ok, I exaggerate but the feeling is there.
Age and wisdom is non existent concepts, and supposedly powerful characters die from the equivalent of slipping on a banana.
Sheer marketing is going to make a lot of people see this, and I have no doubt it will be a box office hit. But it will also destroy the franchise.
