These days, so many of us get on the Internet with one thing in mind: More Star Wars. Since October of 2013 when it was announced that Episode VII of the Star Wars saga was coming, many of us spend every day, at least partially, thinking about it. With just over a year to go until release, this has begun to speed up, especially with rumors of a first trailer coming and the official title: Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
