Thirty years after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, heroes and heroines, old and new, must join forces to defeat a grand new threat: the evil Kylo Ren and the First Order.

USA | 135 min | PG-13 | DCP | Dir. J. J. Abrams

Thirty years after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, the galaxy faces a new threat from the evil Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the First Order. When a defector named Finn crash-lands on a desert planet, he meets Rey (Daisy Ridley), a tough scavenger whose droid contains a top-secret map. Together, the young duo joins forces with Han Solo (Harrison Ford) to make sure the Resistance receives the intelligence concerning the whereabouts of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), the last of the Jedi Knights.

"The Force Awakens strikes all the right chords, emotional and narrative, to feel both familiar and exhilaratingly new. Filled with incident, movement and speed, it captures the kinetic energy that made the first film, from 1977, such a revelation to filmgoers." (Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post)
