“A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…”
Director J.J. Abrams announced plans for a new Star Wars installment. After what seems like light years of waiting, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, finally hits theaters!
To celebrate the release of Episode VII (and pass time until we can see it tonight), we’re looking back on those eons of built-up excitement. Chances are, over the last few months, every Star Wars fan has had at least one of these four encounters:
1. When you were trying to have an epic discussion about movie theories with someone, but they were like, “Listening to you, I am not.”
2. When the force of your excitement was so strong, before realizing that your boss must work for the dark side.
3. When people asked you what you were so excited about and you gave the only obvious answer:
4. When some had doubts, but you, being the true Jedi that you are, told J.J. Abrams, “Do or do not, there is no try.”
Thankfully, the wait is finally over! Now, the only thing left standing between you and the newest Star Wars adventure is surviving the line for popcorn. May The Force be with you.
