George Lucas, creator of the series, both in this Episodo has worked as consulting creative. J.J. Abrams takes the lead in 'Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens'; in addition to direct the film, the creator of 'Lost' signs the screenplay alongside veteran Lawrence Kasdan, one of the people who know more the universe and the characters of this saga. In this installment we'll reunite with former members of the original cast (Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill) and we'll meet new faces, like John Boyega or Daisy Ridley. 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' takes place approximately 30 years after the events of 'Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi'. This time we'll meet three new main characters: a young woman named Riley, a man named Finn and a pilot whose name is Poe Dameron. The three of them will be important pieces of the new battle between good and evil, in the form of the Resistance and the First Order.

Trivia

Although this is the second Star Wars film to be released in IMAX, it is the first to have IMAX cameras in use during filming.

Harrison Ford broke his ankle while shooting the movie in the Millenium Falcon. And a year later, J.J. Abrams revealed that he broke his back while trying to help his actor out.

In 'A New Hope' Darth Vader locks Leia in the cell 2187. Finn, John Boyega's character in ''Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens'', goes by the name FN-2187 as an imperial soldier, in a clear nod to the original film directed by George Lucas.
