Star Wars: Force Awakens gets world premiere

(BBC, 15/12/2015)

The hotly-anticipated latest addition in the Star Wars franchise, The Force Awakens, has had its world premiere in Los Angeles.
Stars from the original series Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher were joined by newcomers like John Boyega and Daisy Ridley at the event.
Security was tight, with a giant tent shrouding the red carpet.
The plot of the film remains a closely-guarded secret and a media embargo on reviews is in place until Wednesday.

‘Star Wars’ Premieres to Enthusiastic Thumbs Up in Hollywood
James Rainey (Variety, 14/12/2015)
Director J.J. Abrams’ widely-anticipated “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” screened for the first time Monday night and the initial responses were, to the relief of fans, overwhelmingly positive.
Actress Geena Davis let out a whoop from her seat in the second row of the Dolby Theater balcony, as soon as the film ended, “I loved everything about it,” she said. “Especially Rey,” referring to newcomer Daisy Ridley.
Young stars John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver also received cheers from the audience at the Hollywood and Highland complex, where Lucasfilm’s seventh “Star Wars” pic screened simultaneously at three different theaters, but the night’s biggest reactions came for the filmmakers and stars of the original “Star Wars” films. A large roar went out for Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill, who were all on hand for the massive world premiere

Coming-of-age ritual
‘Star Wars’: A 6-Year-Old Fan Sees the Big Picture and Awakens
Michael Wilson (The New York Times, 06/12/2015)
“Dad,” my 6-year-old son, Jude, began, and I thought, here we go.
“When do I get to see ‘Star Wars’?”
In print, that question reads as cheerful and eager, but in person, it was laced with jaded exasperation, for this was not our first go-round on the matter — oh no. In fact, our family’s evenings had come to include a regular feature from Jude that could be titled, “The Running List of Kids Who Have Seen ‘Star Wars’ While I Haven’t.” The long list now included a girl who lived in the apartment upstairs and a boy from school.
Was Jude ready? I looked at my boy, my sweet little boy who seemingly just yesterday loved a blue train that prided itself on being really useful. I thought of that first “Star Wars” and, in particular, the bloody severed arm of a space alien on the floor of the Mos Eisley cantina. Part of me feared it might be too intense.

Heroic legends

Every era needs its myth cycle. Star Wars is ours
Matthew d'Ancona (The Guardian, 14/10/2015)
“That story will never appear on screen again. It’s finished. It’s complete.” So George Lucas told me in an interview 10 years ago: RIP Star Wars. Our meeting was pegged to the release of the saga’s third episode, Revenge of the Sith, and the completion of the so-called “prequel trilogy”.
Somewhat confusingly, this epic series of blockbusters had begun halfway through a six-movie cycle, with Star Wars (1977), later relabelled Episode IV: A New Hope. The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983) followed, each a box-office sensation.
So was there really nothing, I asked the diminutive magus of the Star Wars universe, that could tempt him to make Episodes VII to IX? “No. No. It really is the story of the tragedy of Darth Vader, and it starts when he’s nine, and it ends when he’s dead. And that is the story.”
