The Force Awakens spoilers

It’s been over ten years since George Lucas finished his prequel trilogy, and it’s no secret they left plenty of fans twiddling their thumbs in disappointment. Despite coming from the man behind Star Wars, the prequels didn’t feel like Star Wars movies — they were missing the spirit, emotion and adventure of the original trilogy. All these years later, can J.J. Abrams get this series back on the right track with Star Wars: The Force Awakens?

Well, we’re finally finding out tonight. After the jump, share your thoughts on Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the comments. Please note that spoilers are encouraged in the comments section for this post. If you have not seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we encourage you to return once you have.

Acapella Star Wars

Even people who aren’t Star Wars fans know the iconic fanfare that begins every single movie. The same can be said for the iconic Imperial March used to signify the arrival of the Empire and Darth Vader. And now thanks to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, his house band The Roots, and the primary cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we have an awesome a capella version of those iconic themes that’s presented like the opening credits of The Brady Bunch, but a hell of a lot cooler.

new star wars: the force awakens photos

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in just over two weeks. It premieres in 12 days. Director J.J. Abrams has reached picture lock, the point where editing is finished and only the final visual effects and sound touch-ups remain. It is now a real movie that actually exists and will be in theaters soon, not a batch of trailers or a gallery of on-set photographs or a figment of our collective imagination. It’s almost here, people.

So you may want to tread cautiously around Rolling Stone’s deep dive into the film, which takes the reader behind the scenes of the film’s post-production process and squeezes a few sweet, juicy details into the public eye. However, the article is also an incredible look at a hugely anticipated movie from the point-of-view of a huge fan who knows how to ask the right questions. You can check out more details, including a batch of new photos from the set, after the jump.
