Star Wars Counts Down to ‘The Force Awakens’

Okay, calm down, deep breaths, in and out. There you go.

We know you’re about to burst with excitement because Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now just officially one short month away. But if you do that, you won’t make it to the actual movie.

In the meantime, check out these amazing One Month Countdown images for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We would be lying if we said they didn’t have us completely stoked.

There are plenty of reasons to be excited for J.J. Abrams’ newest addition to the Star Wars saga. One such reason is John Boyega’s Finn, pictured above. As can clearly be seen, Finn is wielding Anakin and Luke Skywalker’s famous blue lightsaber. Remember, Jedi have been virtually extinct since Revenge of the Sith, with Luke rumored to be more urban legend than reality in The Force Awakens. That means Jedi haven’t been around for roughly 60 years in the Star Wars galaxy!

Finn may change all that and become the first in a new generation of Light side Force users. If that doesn’t sound like an interesting character arc than you might as well just skip the movie altogether. 

Another reason to be excited is the return of your favorite original trilogy characters, namely Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker. Is that him in the robe standing beside R2D2? Abrams has curiously left out Luke in the promotional campaign for the film and has even admitted that this was intentional. Interesting.

What has the last Jedi been up to all these years? How will his character come into play in The Force Awakens? Will he take Finn as an apprentice? Is he the reason behind the “awakening” of the Force?

We have just one more month to wait until all of our questions are finally answered. Star Wars: The Force Awakens will hit theaters on Dec. 18.
