NO THIS is not an epic piece of fiction but it’s brilliant fun.
Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens Smuggler’s Run: A Han Solo Adventure (Star Wars: Journey to Star Wars: the Force Awakens) is a really great slice/incident/story in the post Episode IV era where we see a Solo in his prime.

Not quite done being the smuggler and not quite the hero – yet – but on his way.

The way the story is told as a flashback in a bar – is a wonderful narrative tool too.

YES we know this is a middle-school book / but make no mistake about it this is a book that any Star Wars fan will enjoy (at any age).

Star Wars the Force Awakens

Remember the very first trailer for Star Wars Episode I?

Back then we remember being amazed by the new double-bladed saber that Darth Maul had. Who knew you could have a double-bladed saber?

Well here we are more than a decade later and the first new trailer for the relaunch of Star Wars once again has a new lightsaber.

This time, it’s not a double-side blade, but rather what we’re going to call the ‘Sith Hilt’ ; not sure if this weapon can be more (or less) effective in battle; but it sure does look cool.

And what of the Sith that wields this blade?  we know nothing…yet

Stormtroopers aren’t the only ones that get a new look in Star Wars The Force Awakens.

X-Wing pilots get an updated helmet and flight suit in the new movie.

The actual X-Wing looks mostly the same as the classic model, though now we get to see it fight in-atmosphere too.

The first teaser trailer for Star Wars VII, gives fans the first peek at the new look of Stormtroopers.

These are not Episode IV New Hope Troopers and they’re not Episode II Attack of the Clones clone troopers either.

Rather the new look stormtroopers look like a hybrid of the Episode IV and Episode II looks to create something new.

The first teaser trailer only gives us 88 seconds but it already adds some … color.

Troopers started out as all being clones – of bounty hunter Bobba Fett and his pseudo Caucasian skin color.

In The Force Awakens our first character glimpse is of a stormtrooper of color.

The first teaser trailer for Star Wars the Force Awakens is out and it doesn’t disappoint.

No, we don’t see Luke, Leia or Han.

Yes, we see X-wing, tie-fighters, storm troopers, lightsabers

Only a year to go…
