Star Wars: The Force Awakens is truly an awakening for the franchise. The movie reinvigorated the genius of star wars. New characters have been added while maintaining the originality of the Star Wars universe. The droid BB-8 adds excitement to the movie. The droid seems to have been designed specifically for Jakku. The movie retains the feel of the actual trilogy. This is in part due to the fact that J.J. Abrams himself is a true star wars fan. He is said to have seen episode IV when it was first released in 1977, many times at the theater. Abrams avoided CGI as much as possible. A lot of the filming was done on actual locations with real items creating authenticity.
