Star Wars: The Force Awakens

If you know me, you’ll know that I’m a total sci-fi nerd. I watch everything sci-fi. Star Trek? Yup. Orphan Black? Yes. Doctor Who? Of course. Battlestar Galactica? Oh. My. Gawd. Yes!!! But Star Wars is and always will be my favorite which also tend to be one of the favorites this year to collect more at the box office with a 4/1 prediction for this year.
I beg my kids every year to dress up as Star Wars characters for Halloween. I succeed once. My twins were Luke and Leia and my toddler was an Ewok. It was awesome.
I agree with most Star Wars fans that say episodes 4, 5, and 6 (the originals) were fantastic. Instant classics. Episodes 1, 2, and 3, not so much. Good, but not great. So when I heard that Disney was taking over Star Wars, I was MAD. My first thought was, “Great.  They’re going to turn Star Wars into a Disney Movie. It will be like Frozen but with outer space and light sabers instead of ice and…ice.” If you can’t tell, I don’t like Disney. Yes, I said it. Don’t judge me. After seeing the latest trailer for The Force Awakens, though I’m not really mad anymore. I’m actually super excited about it now. It looks dark, but in a good way.
It looks like a movie I could really love. But it also looks like my kids would love it too, which is great because then I won’t have to bribe them with $10 popcorn to come see the movie with me.  I really hope The Force Awakens is as good as the trailers so far have been. This movie has had a ton of hype and there are a lot of doubters out there and we all have very high expectations. Despite my doubts, I’m super excited about this and I’ll be the first in line at the movie theater in December!



STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS arrives in theaters everywhere on December 18th!



My name is Sharon Geyer. I am originally from New York City and currently live in beautiful Ponte Vedra, Florida. My husband and three kids keep me very busy as a stay-at-home mom. I also teach ballet, organize community events, and I love to read books. I typically choose historical fiction when reading something new but I also enjoy science fiction and fantasy, and the occasional romance novel.
