Directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is set 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, and features a new generation of heroes and villains, as well as the return of fan-favorite smugglers, princesses, and Jedi.
The film stars 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. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk are producing with Tommy Harper and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers. The screenplay is by Lawrence Kasdan & J.J. Abrams and Michael Arndt.
The film however has not been without controversy, and the latest is that a group of fans are threatening to boycott the movie because according to them, the movie is anti-white and promotes white genocide. Of course, no one is going to take them seriously. If anything, the publicity will boost ticket sales.
The Force Awakens hits cinemas on December 18, 2015.
