Star Wars: The Force Awakens

American epic space-opera film directed by J.&#;J. Abrams

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (also known as Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens) is a American epicspace opera film produced, co-written, and directed by J.&#;J. Abrams. Produced by Lucasfilm and Abrams' production company Bad Robot Productions, and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is the first installment in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, following Return of the Jedi (), and the seventh episode of the nine-part "Skywalker saga". The film's ensemble cast includes Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Max von Sydow. Set thirty years after Return of the Jedi, The Force Awakens follows Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, and Han Solo's search for Luke Skywalker and their fight in the Resistance, led by General Leia Organa and veterans of the Rebel Alliance, against Kylo Ren and the First Order, a successor to the Galactic Empire.

The film was announced after The Walt Disney Company's acquisition of Lucasfilm in October The film is the first Star Wars film to not extensively involve franchise creator George Lucas, who only served as a creative consultant in the early stages of production. The film was produced by Abrams, his longtime collaborator Bryan Burk, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan, co-writer of the original trilogy films The Empire Strikes Back () and Return of the Jedi, rewrote an initial script by Michael Arndt. John Williams, composer for the previous episodic films, returned to compose the score. Principal photography began in April on a $–&#;million budget and concluded the following November. Filming took place on sets at Pinewood Studios in England, and on location mainly in Abu Dhabi, Iceland, and Ireland.

The Force Awakens premiered in Los Angeles on December 14, , and was released in the United States on December It received positive reviews for its screenplay, direction, acting performances, musical score, visual effects, editing, and action sequences, although some critics found the movie too similar to A New Hope (). It broke various box office records and became the highest-grossing installment in the franchise, the highest-grossing film in the United States and Canada, the highest-grossing film of , and the third-highest-grossing film at the time of its release, with a worldwide gross of over $2&#;billion and a net profit of over $&#;million. When box office is adjusted for inflation, the film is the top-grossing sequel of all time in North America. The Force Awakens received numerous accolades, including five nominations at the 88th Academy Awards and four nominations at the 69th British Academy Film Awards, where it won the award for Best Special Visual Effects. Two sequels within the sequel trilogy have been released: The Last Jedi () and The Rise of Skywalker ().

Plot[edit]

Thirty years after the Galactic Civil War,[N 1] the First Order has risen from the fallen Galactic Empire and seeks to end the New Republic. The Resistance, backed by the Republic and led by General Leia Organa, opposes the First Order. Leia searches for her brother, Luke Skywalker, who has gone missing.

On the desert planet Jakku, Resistance pilot Poe Dameron receives a map to Luke's place from Lor San Tekka. Stormtroopers commanded by Kylo Ren raid the village and capture Poe, while Kylo kills San Tekka. Poe's droid, BB-8, escapes with the map and encounters a scavenger named Rey. Kylo tortures Poe using the Force and learns of BB Stormtrooper FN, disillusioned by the First Order, frees Poe, and they escape in a stolen TIE fighter. Upon learning that FN has no other name, Poe gives him the name "Finn". As they head to Jakku to retrieve BB-8, a First Order Star Destroyer shoots them, and they crash-land. Finn survives and finds only Poe's jacket in the wreck, leading to the assumption of his death. Finn encounters Rey and BB-8, but the First Order tracks them and launches an airstrike. Rey, Finn, and BB-8 steal the Millennium Falcon and escape the planet.

The Falcon is discovered and boarded by Han Solo and Chewbacca. Gangs seeking to settle debts with Han attack, but the group escape in the Falcon. At the First Order's Starkiller Base, a planet converted into a superweapon, Supreme Leader Snoke allows General Hux to use the weapon for the first time on the New Republic. Snoke questions Kylo's ability to deal with emotions surrounding his father, Han Solo, who Kylo states means nothing to him.

Aboard the Falcon, Han determines that BB-8's map is incomplete. He then explains that Luke attempted to rebuild the Jedi Order, but exiled himself when an apprentice turned to the dark side, destroyed the temple, and slaughtered the other apprentices. The crew travels to the planet Takodana and meets with cantina owner Maz Kanata, who offers help getting BB-8 to the Resistance. The Force draws Rey to a secluded vault, where she finds the lightsaber once belonging to Luke and his father, Anakin Skywalker. She experiences disturbing visions and denies the lightsaber at Maz's offering. She then flees into the woods, confused and terrified. Maz gives Finn the lightsaber for safekeeping.

Starkiller Base, much like the Original Death Star, destroys the New Republic and its fleet leaving just the Resistance left. The First Order attacks Takodana in search of BB Han, Chewbacca, and Finn are saved by Resistance X-wing fighters led by Poe, who survived the crash. Leia arrives at Takodana with C-3PO and reunites with Han. Meanwhile, Kylo captures Rey and takes her to Starkiller Base, but she resists his mind-reading attempts. Snoke orders Kylo to bring Rey to him. Discovering she can use the Force, Rey escapes using a Jedi mind trick on a guard (guest cameo by Daniel Craig).

At the Resistance base on D'Qar, BB-8 finds R2-D2, who had been inactive since Luke's disappearance. As Starkiller Base prepares to fire once more, the Resistance devises a plan to destroy it by attacking its thermal oscillator. Using the Falcon, Han, Chewbacca, and Finn infiltrate the facility, find Rey, and plant explosives. Han confronts Kylo, calling him by his birth name Ben, and implores him to abandon the dark side. Kylo seems to consider this, but ultimately kills his father instead. Devastated, Chewbacca shoots Kylo and sets off the explosives, allowing Poe to attack and destroy the base's thermal oscillator.

The injured Kylo pursues Finn and Rey into the woods. Finn fights Kylo with the lightsaber to protect Rey before Kylo knocks him unconscious. Rey takes the lightsaber and channels the Force to defeat Kylo in a duel; they are then separated by a fissure as the planet's surface begins to splinter. Snoke orders Hux to evacuate and bring Kylo to him to complete his training. Chewbacca rescues Rey and the unconscious Finn, and they escape aboard the Falcon. As the Resistance forces flee, Starkiller Base implodes. R2-D2 awakens and reveals the rest of the map, which leads Rey to the oceanic planet Ahch-To in the Falcon.

On Ahch-To, Rey finds Luke atop a cliff on a remote island. Without a word, she presents him with his father's lightsaber.

Cast[edit]

See also: List of Star Wars characters and List of Star Wars cast members

  • Harrison Ford as Han Solo:[1]
    A rogue and a smuggler, formerly a key player in the Rebel Alliance. Ford said, "[Han] does not aspire to the position of Obi-Wan, nor do I aspire to be some New Age Alec Guinness. His development is consistent with the character, and there are emotional elements which have occasioned his growth. [] There's a lot of the rogue still left in Solo. Some things don't change."[2]
  • Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker:[1]
    The last Jedi, who has gone into hiding. Regarding Luke, Han, and Leia, Abrams stated: "They'd be as old and as mythic as the tale of King Arthur. They would be characters who [the new characters] may have heard of, but maybe not. They'd be characters who they might believe existed, or just sounded like a fairy tale."[3] Hamill was initially skeptical of Luke only appearing at the end of the film and called his limited screentime "a great surprise".[4] Abrams added that the film's ending was intended to be "this great long drumroll up to seeing this guy".[4]
  • Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa:
    The former princess of the destroyed planet Alderaan, now General of the Resistance, and Luke's twin sister.[1][5] After the events of Return of the Jedi, she is described as "a little more battle weary, a little more broken hearted".[6] Fisher described Leia as "Solitary. Under a lot of pressure. Committed as ever to her cause, but I would imagine feeling somewhat defeated, tired, and pissed." Abrams said: "The stakes are pretty high in the story for her, so there's not much goofing around where Leia's concerned."[7]
  • Adam Driver as Kylo Ren:
    A dark warrior who is strong with the Force, the leader of the Knights of Ren, and a high-ranking member of the First Order. He is the son of Han and Leia, nephew of Luke, and the grandson of the deceased Darth Vader.[8][9][10] Driver said the team tried "not to think of him as being bad, or evil, or a villain. Something that was more three-dimensional. He's more dangerous and unpredictable, and morally justified in doing what he thinks is right."[11]
  • Daisy Ridley as Rey:
    A highly Force-sensitive scavenger who was abandoned as a child on the desert planet Jakku and awaits her absent family's return.[12][13] Ridley said: "She's completely self-sufficient and does everything for herself, until she meets [Finn] and an adventure begins."[13]
  • John Boyega as Finn:
    A reformed First Order stormtrooper.[12][13][15] Boyega said that he learned he obtained the part "over a nice breakfast in Mayfair" during which Abrams told him, "John, you're the new star of Star Wars."[16] Boyega said: "When we find Finn, he's in incredible danger. And the way he reacts to this danger changes his life, and launches him into the Star Wars universe in a very unique way."[13] He said in another interview: "He's been taught about Luke Skywalker, he knows about his history. For him it's like joining the army and then learning about one of the great enemies of your country."[3]
  • Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron:
    A Resistance X-wing fighter pilot.[12][13] Isaac said: "He's the best freaking pilot in the galaxy, [] He's been sent on a mission by a certain princess, and he ends up coming up across [Finn], and their fates are forever intertwined."[13]
  • Lupita Nyong'o as Maz Kanata:
    A wise and perceptive figure operating a somewhat shady cantina on the peaceful forest planet Takodana who is acquainted with Han.[17][18] Abrams said Kanata has "lived over a thousand years. She's had this watering hole for about a century, and it's like another bar that you'd find in a corner of the Star Wars universe."[19] According to Abrams, the character was based on his former high school English teacher, Rose Gilbert, who lectured at the Palisades Charter High School from to Abrams said the team "really wanted the story to feel authentic, despite being a wild fantasy. I mentioned Rose in an early story meeting as a sort of timeless, wise figure that I'd actually known in my life."[20]
  • Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke:
    The political leader of the First Order. He is Kylo Ren's master, who seduced him to the dark side and is very powerful in the dark side of the Force.[12][21] Serkis described Snoke as "quite an enigmatic character, and strangely vulnerable at the same time as being quite powerful, [] He is large. He appears tall. And also just the facial design—you couldn't have gotten there with prosthetics. [] Without giving too much away at this point, he has a very distinctive, idiosyncratic bone and facial structure."[22]
  • Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux:
    The commander of the First Order's Starkiller Base.[1][23] Gleeson described him as "pretty ruthless. A strong disciplinarian would be a mild way of putting it. [] He's kind of opposite Kylo Ren. They have their own relationship, which is individual and unusual. One of them is strong in different ways than the other. They're both vying for power."[24]
  • Anthony Daniels as C-3PO:[1]
    A humanoid protocol droid in Organa's service. Daniels said the actors were allowed to experiment with their performances, and that Abrams "made a field, a playpen where you were allowed to take your time and suggest things".[25]
  • Max von Sydow as Lor San Tekka: A retired adventurer on Jakku, aiding the Resistance in finding Skywalker.[1][26]
  • Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca:[1]
    A Wookiee and Solo's longtime companion. Mayhew's double Joonas Suotamo portrays the character in several action scenes, and Ian Whyte performed stunts, as the year-old Mayhew suffered from knee problems.[27][28]

Tim Rose and Mike Quinn reprise their respective roles as Admiral Ackbar and Nien Nunb from Return of the Jedi, with Erik Bauersfeld and Kipsang Rotich returning their respective voices.[14]Kenny Baker, originally announced as part of the cast, was credited as "consultant" for R2-D2,[1][14] with Jimmy Vee performing some of the work for R2-D2.[29]Ewan McGregor has an uncredited vocal cameo as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Rey's vision sequence, while archival audio of Frank Oz and Alec Guinness as Yoda and Kenobi, respectively, are also used in the same scene; Oz recorded new dialogue for the film, but it was replaced with preexisting audio from The Empire Strikes Back.[30]

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

Star Wars creator George Lucas discussed ideas for a sequel trilogy several times after the conclusion of the original trilogy, but denied any intent to make it.[66] In October , he sold his production company Lucasfilm to The Walt Disney Company.[67] Speaking alongside Lucasfilm's new president, Kathleen Kennedy, Lucas said: "I always said I wasn't going to do any more and that's true, because I'm not going to do any more, but that doesn't mean I'm unwilling to turn it over to Kathy to do more."[68]

As creative consultant on the film, Lucas attended early story meetings and advised on the details of the Star Wars universe.[67] Among the materials he turned over to the production team were his rough story treatments for Episodes VII–IX, which Lucas requested be read only by Kennedy, Bob Iger, Alan F. Horn, and Kevin A. Mayer.[67] Lucas later said Disney had discarded his story ideas and that he had no further involvement with the film.[69][70][71] Lucas' son Jett told The Guardian that his father was "very torn" about having sold the rights to the franchise and that his father was "there to guide" but that "he wants to let it go and become its new generation".[72]

The Force Awakens' first screenplay was written by Michael Arndt.[73] Early drafts had Luke Skywalker appear midway through the film, but Arndt found that "every time Luke came in and entered the movie, he just took it over. Suddenly you didn't care about your main character anymore."[74] The writers decided to use Luke as the film's MacGuffin and, as something that the protagonists needed to find, would not appear in person until the final scene.[74] Arndt also developed some backstory elements for the returning characters from the original trilogy, such as how Leia was instrumental in rebuilding the Republic after the fall of the Empire before being discredited when it was publicly revealed that her biological father was Darth Vader (this would go on to become a central plot point in the canonical novel Star Wars: Bloodline).

Several directors were considered, including David Fincher,[76]Brad Bird,[77]Jon Favreau,[78] and Guillermo del Toro;[79] after a suggestion by Steven Spielberg to Kennedy,[80]J. J. Abrams was named director in January ,[81] with Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg as project consultants.[82] Arndt worked on the script for eight months, but said he needed 18 more, which was more time than Disney or Abrams could give him.[83] The production announced Arndt's exit from the project on October 24, , and Kasdan and Abrams took over script duties.[84] Abrams expressed relief that the release date was announced for December instead of a previously discussed summer release.[85] He and Kasdan planned the story while walking in Santa Monica, California, New York City, Paris, and London. The first draft was completed in six weeks.[86] Abrams said the key to the film was [returned] to the roots of the first Star Wars films and be based more on emotion than explanation.[87] In January , Abrams confirmed that the script was complete.[88] In April , Lucasfilm clarified that Episodes VII–IX would not feature storylines from the Star Wars expanded universe, though other elements could be included, as with the TV series Star Wars Rebels.[89]

Abrams stated that he purposely withheld some plot elements from The Force Awakens, such as Rey and Finn's last names and backgrounds. Kennedy admitted that "we haven't mapped out every single detail [of the sequel trilogy] yet", but said that Abrams was collaborating with The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, and that Johnson would work with The Rise of Skywalker's then-director Colin Trevorrow to ensure a smooth transition and that "everybody's got a say in how we move forward with this".[90] Daisy Ridley later recounted that J. J. Abrams had written drafts for episodes 8 and 9.[91]

A fictional language was developed for use in the film by YouTube star Sara Forsberg, who created the viral video series "What Languages Sound Like To Foreigners"; Forsberg developed the language by studying various languages, such as Hindi and Gujarati.[92]

In November , Lucas recorded an hour-long interview with CBS News reporter Charlie Rose in which he said Disney had not been "keen" to involve him and conceded: "If I get in there, I'm just going to cause trouble because they're not going to do what I want them to do, and I don't have the control to do that any more, and all it would do is just muck everything up."[93] He also said, "They wanted to do a retro movie. I don't like that. Every movie, I worked very hard to make them different&#;[] I made them completely different—different planets, different spaceships to make it new."[94][95] In early December , Kathleen Kennedy told The Hollywood Reporter that Lucas had seen the movie and "liked it".[96] In the same month, at the Kennedy Center Honors, Lucas stated, "I think the fans are going to love it, It's very much the kind of movie they've been looking for."[97] Abrams felt that, as the first in a new trilogy, the film "needed to take a couple of steps backwards into very familiar terrain" and use plot elements from previous Star Wars films.[98]

Pre-production[edit]

In May , it was confirmed that The Force Awakens would be filmed in the United Kingdom.[99] Representatives from Lucasfilm met with Chancellor of the ExchequerGeorge Osborne to agree to produce The Force Awakens in the UK.[99] Osborne committed £25&#;million of public money towards the film, claiming it was a boost for British culture and its film industry.[] According to production company account filings in the United Kingdom, The Force Awakens ultimately received a total of £&#;million ($&#;million) from the government.[][]

Beginning in September , production spaces at the Bad Robot facility were converted for shooting of The Force Awakens for the benefit of shooting a minor portion of the film in the United States.[] The film's costume designer was Michael Kaplan, who had previously worked with Abrams on the films Star Trek () and Star Trek Into Darkness ().[] Film editors Mary Jo Markey and Maryann Brandon, long-term collaborators with Abrams, were also signed.[] In August , it was announced that cinematographerDaniel Mindel would be shooting the film on 35 mm film (specifically Kodak).[] In October , other crew members were confirmed, including sound designer Ben Burtt, director of photography Mindel, production designers Rick Carter and Darren Gilford, costume designer Michael Kaplan, special effects supervisor Chris Corbould, re-recording mixer Gary Rydstrom, supervising sound editor Matthew Wood, visual effects supervisors Roger Guyett, and executive producer Jason McGatlin.[][]

Casting[edit]

Open auditions were held in the United Kingdom and the United States in November for the roles of Rachel and Thomas.[] Casting began in earnest in January , because of changes to the script by Kasdan and Abrams.[] Screen tests with actors continued until at least three weeks before the official announcement in April , with final casting decisions made only a few weeks earlier. Actors testing had strict nondisclosure agreements, preventing them, their agents or their publicists from commenting on their involvement.[12] Though Lucas intimated that previous cast members Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill would return for the new film as early as March ,[67] their casting was not confirmed until over a year later.[1]Saoirse Ronan,[]Michael B. Jordan,[]Lupita Nyong'o[] and Frida Gustavsson,[] auditioned for new characters; industry publications reported Jesse Plemons was considered, possibly for Luke Skywalker's son;[]Adam Driver for an unnamed villain;[8] and Maisie Richardson-Sellers for an unknown character.[]

Daisy Ridley was cast by February , and by the end of that month a deal had been worked out with Driver, who was able to work around his Girls schedule. Talks with Andy Serkis and Oscar Isaac began by March and continued into April. That same month, John Boyega began talks after dropping out of a Jesse Owens biopic.[12]Denis Lawson, who played Wedge Antilles in the original trilogy, declined to reprise his role, saying it would have "bored" him.[]

In April, the cast was announced with a photo of the first table read of the script at Pinewood Studios near London, picturing director Abrams with Ford, Ridley, Fisher, Peter Mayhew, producer Bryan Burk, Lucasfilm president and producer Kathleen Kennedy, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Hamill, Serkis, Isaac, Boyega, Driver, and writer Lawrence Kasdan.[1] In June, cast additions Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie were announced.[17] To prepare for his role, Hamill was assigned a personal trainer and a nutritionist at the request of the producers, who wanted him to resemble an older Luke.[] Fisher was also assigned a personal trainer and a nutritionist.[] Abrams initially considered using Daniels only in a voice role for C-3PO,[] but Daniels opted to reprise the role physically as well; the production team built a new C-3PO costume to accommodate him.[] A flashback scene was cut from Rey's vision (following her discovery of Luke's lightsaber), which would have featured Robert Boulter standing in for Luke as he appeared in his duel with Vader in The Empire Strikes Back.[]

In May, Abrams announced a donation contest for UNICEF from the Star Wars set in Abu Dhabi; the winner was allowed to visit the set, meet members of the cast and appear in the film.[] In October, Warwick Davis, who played Wicket in Return of the Jedi, as well as Wald and Weazle in The Phantom Menace (), announced that he would appear in The Force Awakens, but did not reveal his role.[] In November, Debbie Reynolds confirmed that her granddaughter (Fisher's daughter), Billie Lourd, was in the film.[47]

Filming[edit]

In February , Abrams said filming would begin in May and last about three months.[87] The official announcement came in March, when Disney and Lucasfilm announced that principal photography would commence in May and be based at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England.[] That month, it was revealed that pre-production filming would take place in Iceland prior to the start of official filming in May, consisting of landscape shots that would be used for scenery in the film.[] In April, Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn confirmed that filming had begun,[] filming in secret in the United Arab Emirates around Liwa Oasis, part of the emirate of Abu Dhabi, by a second unit.[] Later that month, it was revealed that in addition to 35&#;mm film, segments of the film were being shot in the 65 mmIMAX format.[] In July, Bad Robot reported via Twitter that the film would be at least partially shot on IMAX cameras.[]

Principal photography began in Abu Dhabi on May 16, [] The budget was reported to be between $&#;million and &#;million.[][] Abrams and the cast members went to Abu Dhabi in early-May, where large sets were built on location—including a shuttle-like spacecraft, a large tower, and a big market—and where explosives were used to create a "blast crater". Cast members were spotted practicing driving vehicles that would be used during filming.[] Production moved to Pinewood Studios in June.[]

That same month, Harrison Ford fractured his leg while filming at Pinewood after a hydraulic door on the Millennium Falcon set fell on him, and was taken to a hospital. According to Abrams, Ford's ankle "went to a degree angle".[83] Production was suspended for two weeks because of Ford's injury.[] Ford's son Ben said the ankle would likely need a plate and screws and that filming could be altered slightly, with the crew needing to shoot Ford from the waist up for a short time until he recovered.[] A month later, Jake Steinfeld, Ford's personal trainer, said Ford was recovering rapidly.[] Abrams also suffered a fractured vertebra in his back when he was trying to help lift the door after Ford's accident,[83] but he kept this to himself for over a month.[] In February , it was reported that the Health and Safety Executive brought four criminal charges against Disney subsidiary Foodles Production (UK), Ltd. for alleged health and safety breaches relating to Ford's accident.[] Foodles Production (UK) Ltd was subsequently fined $&#;million in October for two health and safety breaches, after admitting the counts at an earlier hearing.[]

In July , filming took place over three days at Skellig Michael, an island off the coast of County Kerry, Ireland, with a cast including Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley.[] Landscape shots for the planet Takodana were shot in July in the Lake District in the northwest of England.[] Production was halted for two weeks in early August so Abrams could rework shooting in Ford's absence and resumed with a fully healed Ford in mid-August.[][] In September, the former RAF Greenham Common military base in Berkshire was used and featured set constructions of several spaceships.[][]Puzzlewood in the Forest of Dean Gloucestershire England was used for some scenes.[] Principal photography ended on November 3, []

Post-production[edit]

Kathleen Kennedy said The Force Awakens would use real locations and models over computer-generated imagery.[] Rian Johnson, director of The Last Jedi, reiterated that Abrams would use little CGI and more practical, traditional special effects, saying: "I think people are coming back around to [practical effects]. It feels like there is sort of that gravity pulling us back toward it. I think that more and more people are hitting kind of a critical mass in terms of the CG-driven action scene lending itself to a very specific type of action scene, where physics go out the window and it becomes so big so quick."[] Abrams' intention in prioritizing practical special effects was to recreate the visual realism and authenticity of the original Star Wars.[] To that end, the droid BB-8 was a physical prop developed by Disney Research,[] created by special effects artist Neal Scanlan and operated live on set with the actors.[][] The Holochess sequence was created using stop-motion, which was supervised by Tippett Studio and overseen by Phil Tippett, who also worked on the stop-motion sequence in the original Star Wars film.[][][][]

In February , Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) announced plans to open a facility in London, citing Disney's Star Wars films as a catalyst for the expansion. ILM's Vancouver branch also worked on the special effects for the film.[] Abrams supervised post-production and editing of the film at Bad Robot Productions' headquarters in Santa Monica.[83] In August , he gave the film's estimated running time of minutes.[] Abrams made changes to the film's plot in the editing process to simplify the film, by removing some sequences shown in trailers: "At one point, Maz used to continue along with the characters back to the Resistance base, but we realised that she really had nothing to do there of value [] So we ended up leaving those things out."[] The final cut of the film runs for minutes.[]

On November 6, , the film's title was announced as Star Wars: The Force Awakens.[] In December , Pablo Hidalgo, the creative executive at the Lucasfilm Story Group which handles all the canonical continuity for the Star Wars universe, revealed that the working title for the film was Shadow of the Empire "for the longest time".[]

Music[edit]

Main article: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (soundtrack)

In July , John Williams was confirmed to return to compose the sequel trilogy, beginning with The Force Awakens.[] He began working on the film in December , and by June had been through most of the film reels, working on a daily basis.[][] In May , Williams said he would return to themes from the previous films, such as those for Luke, Leia, and Han, in ways that "there are a few that I think are important and will seem very much a part of the fabric of the piece in a positive and constructive way." He said that working with Abrams was similar to the process he went through with Lucas in the earlier films.[]

Recording sessions for The Force Awakens began in June at the Sony Pictures Studios' Barbra Streisand Scoring Stage in Culver City, with William Ross conducting most of the music.[] The first day of recording was June 1, [] Williams attended the sessions and conducted the remainder of the recordings in Los Angeles.[][]

The score was recorded in 12 sessions within a five-month period between June and mid-November. The piece orchestra recorded minutes of music; however, Abrams reedited the film, which discarded, modified, or rerecorded the score's part for nearly an hour. Williams' theme for Snoke was recorded by a voice men's chorus.[]Gustavo Dudamel conducted the opening and end title music for the film at Williams' behest.[] Recording of the score was completed on November 14, [] The film's soundtrack was released by Walt Disney Records on December 18, [] Williams' score is more than two hours long.[]

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Abrams contributed music to the film's cantina scene. Abrams met Miranda at a performance of his Broadway musical Hamilton, where Miranda jokingly offered to compose cantina music, should it be needed. Unknown to Miranda, Williams had previously told Abrams that he did not want to compose the music for that scene, wanting to focus on the orchestral score. Abrams then contacted Miranda, and the two collaborated on the music for the scene over a period of two months.[]

Marketing[edit]

Promotion[edit]

Disney backed The Force Awakens with extensive marketing campaigns.[][]Deadline Hollywood estimated the media value was $&#;million.[] On November 28, , Lucasfilm released an second teaser trailer. It was screened in selected cinemas across the United States and Canada and in theaters worldwide in December It was also released on YouTube and the iTunes Store,[] generating &#;million views on YouTube in its first week.[] Critics compared the brief footage favorably to the production values of the original trilogy. The Hollywood Reporter called the trailer "perfectly potent nostalgia", praising its mix of old and new.[]Empire was impressed by the continuity with the first films—"the feel of classic Star Wars"—but noted the absence of Hamill, Ford, and Fisher and speculated about the significance of the new characters.[]The Guardian wrote that the use of the Star Wars fanfare by John Williams reinforced brand loyalty among fans.[]

On December 11, , Abrams and Kennedy released a series of eight mock Toppstrading cards revealing the names of several characters.[] On April 16, , a second teaser trailer, this one lasting two minutes, was shown at the opening panel at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said the reaction to the trailer was "staggering [] the entire room of almost eight thousand people just leapt to their feet and roared, I mean I can't think of anything I've ever been to—other than a rock concert—that felt quite like that".[] The trailer was viewed over 88&#;million times within the first 24 hours of release.[] The trailer shows many of the new characters and the first footage of Chewbacca and Han Solo. The Huffington Post's Graham Milne wrote that the trailer "was an affirmation of something that we'd long been told was never going to happen. This was a gift. This was faith rewarded. About damn time."[]

Vanity Fair was the first magazine to release an exclusive cover issue devoted to The Force Awakens. The magazine, released on May 7, , featured exclusive interviews and photos of the cast photographed by Annie Leibovitz.[][18] At the San Diego Comic-Con International, in addition to a panel with many of the actors, a behind-the-scenes look at the film demonstrated the film's use of practical sets and effects. It was positively received, with Nigel M. Smith of The Guardian writing: "The featurette's angle is a strong one and connects with fans of the original trilogy in an incredibly poignant way. It also does a sly job of teasing Fisher's new look as Leia and Simon Pegg's mysterious involvement as a rumored alien in the movie, without actually showing the actors in action." Smith compared the marketing strategy for the film to that of a previous Abrams film, Super 8, saying "the promos [] are notable for what they tease, not what they give away."[]

Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm presented a look at The Force Awakens at Disney's D23 Expo in August []Drew Struzan—who designed the poster artwork for the previous Star Wars films—produced a commemorative poster given to the event's attendees.[] In October , Lucasfilm unveiled the theatrical release poster and a third trailer.[] The poster omitted Luke Skywalker and revealed a Death Star-like "orb".[] The trailer debuted during the halftime break of Monday Night Football, before being released online.[] The reaction to the trailer by fans on social media was "frenzied", with Lizo Mzimba of the BBC writing that "perhaps the most significant thing about the final trailer before the film's release is how little of the story it reveals."[] Robbie Collin of The Daily Telegraph felt the trailer was "a perfect blend of old and new, in keeping with the old-fashioned Star Wars aesthetic".[] The trailer received &#;million views in 24 hours. 16&#;million of the views came from its airing on Monday Night Football.[] At the end of October, Air France announced a "Flight and Cinema" package, providing customers who book select flights to Paris transportation to a theater to see the film, since France was one of the first countries to release the film.[] On November 23, a partnership with Google was announced, in which Google users could choose to affiliate themselves with either the Dark or Light Side, which would change the appearance of their Google websites. Additionally, Disney teamed up with Verizon to create a virtual-reality experience for Google Cardboard.[]

On December 17, , select theaters across the United States and Canada aired a Star Wars marathon, airing the six previous Star Wars episode films in 2D, followed by The Force Awakens in 3D. Attendees received a special lanyard featuring exclusive marathon art.[]

Tie-in literature and merchandise[edit]

Disney Publishing Worldwide and Lucasfilm announced a series of at least 20 books and comics, "Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens", which were released by multiple publishers starting in late , prior to the film's premiere. The series includes books by Del Rey and Disney-Lucasfilm publishers and comic books from Marvel Comics. All titles under the program are canonical to the Star Wars universe.[]Alan Dean Foster wrote a novelization of The Force Awakens which was released in e-book form on December [] In an effort to avoid revealing plot details before the film's release, the print release of the novelization was delayed until January [] Marvel Comics published a six-issue comic book adaptation of The Force Awakens between June and November []

Disney Consumer Products and Lucasfilm announced that September 4, would be deemed "Force Friday" and would be the official launch of all the merchandise for The Force Awakens. Beginning at &#;am, fans could buy toys, books, clothing and various other products at Disney Stores and other retailers throughout the world.[] Disney and Maker Studios hosted an hour live-streaming presentation on YouTube, showcasing multiple merchandise products beginning on September 3, [][] Among these products were a remote-controlled BB-8 developed by Sphero.[] Sphero had participated in a Disney-run startup accelerator in July , where they were invited into a private meeting with Disney CEO Bob Iger, in which they were shown on-set photos and imagery of BB-8 before its public unveiling.[][] Many retailers, such as Toys "R" Us, were unable to meet demand for Star Wars products due to the event.[]

Video games[edit]

The Force Awakens is the first Star Wars film to not have a direct tie-in game to accompany it.[] Instead, select characters, scenes and/or locations from the film became part of other Star Wars video games: Characters from the film were added to an update to the mobile gameStar Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, available for iOS and Android and released by Electronic Arts;[] free downloadable content for Electronic Arts' Star Wars Battlefrontreboot allowed players to battle on the planet Jakku;[] an update to the mobile game Star Wars Commander, released by Disney Mobile for iOS, Android and the Windows Store, allowed players to battle on the planet Takodana during the Galactic Civil War era;[] and a condensed version of the film's plot becomes an add-on "playset" in the toys-to-life game Disney Infinity , with Finn, Rey, Poe Dameron, and Kylo Ren as playable characters.[] Eventually, the film got a full Lego video game adaptation, titled Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was released by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Xbox , and Xbox One on June 28, []

The Hobbit trilogy to receive such a release.[] The film finally shed some of its IMAX screens with the release of The Revenant () and The Finest Hours () in mid-January []

Advance ticket sales for the film began on October 19, ,[] and were in strong demand, resulting in online movie ticket sites crashing.[][]Vue Cinemas, the United Kingdom's third-largest theater chain, sold 45, tickets in 24 hours, 10, of which were sold in 90 minutes, a record for the theater.[] In the United States, the film pre-sold a record-breaking $&#;million worth of IMAX ticket sales on a single day. IMAX has never previously registered more than $1&#;million in pre-sales on a single day.[] In total, it sold over $50&#;million in pre-sales, breaking the record.[][] This number was raised to $&#;million including $50–60&#;million in advance ticket sales by December [][] However, not all tickets that were pre-sold were for the film's opening weekend, with Fandango President Paul Yanover saying "people have set aside tickets for screenings in January, weeks after the big opening [] We have people buying Star Wars [The Force Awakens] into It's not just an opening-weekend phenomenon."[] Similarly, the film broke pre-sales records in the UK,[] Canada,[] and Germany.[]

The Force Awakens is the first live-action Star Wars film not to be released theatrically by 20th Century Fox; accordingly the film is not introduced with either that company's logo, or its signature fanfare composed by Alfred Newman.[] Instead, the film is the first in the series to be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures,[] and the film is presented with only Lucasfilm's production logo shown silently before the main titles.[] Disney chairman Bob Iger explained that the decision not to place Disney branding on the film was "for the fans".[]

Reception[edit]

Box office[edit]

Main article: List of box office records set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens grossed $&#;million in the United States and Canada and $&#;billion in other countries for a worldwide total of $&#;billion,[] making it the highest-grossing film of [] and the third highest-grossing film of all time.[]Box Office Mojo estimates that the film sold close to &#;million tickets in the United States and Canada.[]The Force Awakens earned % of the total releases in the United States and Canada, second only to the % of the box office earned by Titanic in [] It was the 24th film in cinematic history to gross $1&#;billion worldwide, standing as the fastest film to surpass the mark at the time, doing so in 12 days.[] It was also the third film in history to surpass $2&#;billion worldwide, doing so on its 53rd day of release.[]Deadline Hollywood calculated the net profit of the film to be $&#;million, accounting for production budgets, marketing, talent participations, and other costs, with box office grosses, and ancillary revenues from home media, placing it first on their list of 's "Most Valuable Blockbusters".[] Following this, all expenses and revenues ran at $&#;million, according to The Guardian.[]

Commercial analysis[edit]

Analysts said that the box office receipts of the film, when compared to predecessors, must be adjusted for inflation, and that the first Star Wars film made more when this adjustment is made.[] It has further been observed that each of the first three films in the series was more profitable in calculating revenue against production costs.[]

While The Force Awakens was very successful in the United States and Canada, the same success was not witnessed in many overseas individual markets such as India, other certain parts of Asia and Latin America. This was attributed to it being "a retro film" and how overseas audiences do not have the same nostalgia or affinity for the film as those in the U.S. [][][] The Star Wars franchise has traditionally lacked resonance with filmgoers in China, and marketing for The Force Awakens heavily focused on appealing to that market.[][]

Nancy Tartaglione of Deadline Hollywood argued that, if accounting for its 40/60 domestic to international split, The Force Awakens did well overseas.[] While the film had special effects, analysts felt that it lacked the novelty factor; they also stated that its gross was stilted due to markets making way for new films sooner than was previously done.[] Dergarabedian stated, "No matter what, [The Force Awakens] is an absolute, all-out blockbuster without peer in terms of the sheer speed at which it has crossed all of these major box-office milestones."[] Moreover, Mike Fleming Jr. of Deadline Hollywood argued that the movie was the "most valuable movie" of the year, with "the net profit to Disney was an astounding $M, and the Cash on Cash Return was twice that of any other film [released in ], at ".[]

Critical response[edit]

Star Wars: The Force Awakens received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics.[] On the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, which categorizes reviews only as positive or negative, 93% of reviews are positive, with an average rating of / The website's critical consensus reads, "Packed with action and populated by both familiar faces and fresh blood, The Force Awakens successfully recalls the series' former glory while injecting it with renewed energy."[]Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the film a score of 80 out of based on 55 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews."[] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A" on an A+ to F scale; women, and people under the ages of 25 and 18 gave it an "A+", while 98% of audiences gave it either an "A" or a "B". Audiences polled by PostTrak gave the film an 88% "definite recommend" while 96% said it met or exceeded their expectations.[]

Robbie Collin of The Daily Telegraph said the film "sets out to shake Star Wars from its slumber, and reconnect the series with its much-pined-for past", and "it achieves this both immediately and joyously is perhaps the single greatest relief of the movie-going year."[]Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian said that it was "both a narrative progression from the earlier three films and a shrewdly affectionate next-gen reboot", and it was "ridiculous and melodramatic and sentimental, but exciting and brimming with energy and its own kind of generosity."[]Variety's Justin Chang wrote that the film has "sufficient style, momentum, love, and care to prove irresistible to any who have ever considered themselves fans".[]Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times described it as "a beautiful, thrilling, joyous, surprising, and heart-thumping adventure".[] Ann Hornaday, writing for The Washington Post, thought the film had "enough novelty to create yet another cohort of die-hard fans", and the film struck "all the right chords, emotional, and narrative, to feel both familiar and exhilaratingly new."[]The Charlotte Observer's Lawrence Toppman said Abrams had "pulled off a delicate balancing act, paying clever homage to the past."[]Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle gave the film his highest rating and called it "the best Star Wars sequel yet and one of the best films of ".[] Frank Pallotta, reviewing the film for CNN Business, found it was the best Star Wars film since the original trilogy and that it "is bound to be a film experience long remembered by fans and non-fans alike".[]

Certain critics found The Force Awakens derivative of the original Star Wars trilogy,[94] some expressing their opinion that the film was essentially a remake of A New Hope.[] Tom Long of The Detroit News wrote that though some may find the film too similar to the original Star Wars, it leaves "the ungainly and unneeded clumsiness of the subsequent prequels far behind", with "the energy, humor, and simplicity of direction [has] been recaptured".[] The Tribune-Star called it "basically the same" as the original film but "isn't that what we all wanted anyway?"[]Stephanie Zacharek of Time wrote that Abrams had delivered "everything we expect, as opposed to those nebulous wonders we didn't know we wanted".[] Reviewing for Forbes, Scott Mendelson cited the film's "top-tier production values and a strong sense of scale and scope", but felt it was so much "an exercise in fan service [that] it is only due to the charisma and talent of our newbies and J. J. Abrams' undeniable skill as a visual storyteller that the Mad Libs narrative doesn't outright destroy the picture".[] Brian Merchant of Motherboard said that the film "is supposed to be all about exploring the unexplored, not rehashing the well-trod", and is "one of the most unabashedly creative enterprises of the 20th century has been rendered another largely enjoyable."[]RogerEbert.com's Gerardo Valero went as far as to accuse the film of plagiarizing A New Hope and resorting to nostalgia. He felt that it "didn't [justify] a return to the universe" from not having an original story of its own to tell in the plot, characters, and musical score, negatively comparing it to George Lucas' prequel trilogy, and that some of its climactic moments felt unearned.[]

In an interview with journalist Charlie Rose that aired on December 24, , Lucas likened his decision to sell Lucasfilm to Disney to a "divorce" and outlined the creative differences between him and the producers of The Force Awakens. Lucas described the previous Star Wars films as his "children" and criticized the "retro feel" of The Force Awakens, saying: "I worked very hard to make [my films] completely different, with different planets, with different spaceships—you know, to make it new." Lucas also likened Disney to "white slavers", which drew some criticism; he subsequently apologized.[][] In a memoir, Disney chairman Bob Iger said that George Lucas "couldn't even hide his disappointment" towards J. J. Abrams' interpretation. According to Iger, Lucas said, "there's nothing new" after seeing the film, and that "there weren't enough visual or technical leaps forward".[][] Lucas preferred Rian Johnson's sequel The Last Jedi and the anthology film Rogue One ().[][]

In , when directly confronted about Lucas complaints about The Force Awakens being too derivative of previous films, Abrams said, "What was important for me was introducing brand new characters using relationships that were embracing the history that we know to tell a story that is new – to go backwards to go forwards".[][a] In , Abrams apologized for how he handled Chewbacca and Leia's meeting after Han Solo's death, noting that Han Solo's best friend and widow ignore each other, with Leia instead hugging Rey (whom Leia is meeting for the first time).[] Johnson's sequel included Leia hugging Chewbacca at the end of The Last Jedi as a way to apologize for the previous film oversight.[][] After being confronted about The Force Awakens, Abrams further apologized about it, saying he "wished it would have been Lucas' favorite movie", and that he was "grateful for Lucas", while understanding his complaints about the film being highly derivative of A New Hope. Abrams also said the scene of Starkiller Base destroying a solar system would have had a similar emotional impact to the Death Star destroying planet Alderaan in the original film, had he not chosen to delete scenes of a character who Leia interacted with, prior to the deleted character dying on one of the exploding planets.[]

Johnson's initial response to the script of The Force Awakens included the suggestion of minor adjustments to the ending. According to Abrams, these improved the movie and made it line up more with The Last Jedi. Abrams intended for BB-8 to help Rey search for Luke, which Johnson changed to R2-D2 (due to being Luke's droid, as well as BB-8 belonging to Poe and not knowing Luke).[][] Additionally, Abrams' ending featured Rey finding Luke lifting rocks with the Force, which was changed due to Johnson's plot of Luke having disconnected himself from the Force.[] In , in another response to the criticisms towards The Force Awakens, Abrams stated that Rian Johnson advised him "not to just do something that you've seen before." In the same interview, Abrams said that he liked Snoke's death in the sequel. He also said that Johnson´s boldness of The Last Jedi, mainly in his choice of Snoke´s death, inspired him to be more original when returning for The Rise of Skywalker.[] Abrams also has affirmed his dedication not to retroactively release alternate versions of the films, saying, "I feel like [when] you're done with a thing, that's what it is."[]

  2. ^The $57&#;million figure incorporates revenues generated from the "Star Wars Marathon Event" from theaters in which all previous six Star Wars films were shown along with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

  1. ^In , Abrams said he would not do more remakes or reboots, to instead focus on his own creations, saying: "You know, I do think that if you're telling a story that is not moving anything forward, not introducing anything that's relevant, that's not creating a new mythology or an extension of it, then a complete remake of something feels like a mistake."[]

Tenet lands December DVD and Blu-ray release date in the US

Christopher Nolan&#;s Tenet is arriving on disc this side of Christmas in America, with UK release details still to be confirmed &#; more here.

Whilst it may not have been the shot in the arm the cinema industry was hoping for worldwide, Christopher Nolan’s latest movie Tenet has nonetheless proven to be quite the success here in the UK. The film has grossed £15m in Britain at the time of writing, after five weeks on release. Its total continues to climb too, and it topped the box office for the weekend just gone as well.

Now we learn that Warner Bros is pushing to get the film released on disc this side of Christmas, and that’ll make it one of but a handful of new blockbusters going on sale in time for the end of year market.

The US release date has been pencilled in as December 15th , with the movie available on DVD, Blu-ray and the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format. No details as of yet of extra features. We do know that there will be subtitles though, a feature we&#;d anticipate to be used even more than usual.

Don’t be surprised if the UK release lags a few weeks behind, given the slightly different agreement on cinema exclusivity windows that exists in Britain. Still, everything’s up for change at the moment, so we’ll keep you posted as we hear more.

More as we get it.

The Hateful Eight

In The Hateful Eight, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie's Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…
