Why The Force Awakens.

Well, mostly because I don’t like doing easy things, so I’m sorry.

JJ Abrams took a very hard thing concept and managed to make a simple, elegant film that called back to the original trilogy without making it an homage--as well as emotionally honest. I felt more invested to the new characters than I ever did with Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Leia. Though when Ford and Fisher were together I was definitely feeling something in my eyes.

I think taking on the perspectives of the new characters of Rey, Finn, Poe, and Kylo Ren will provide a unique challenge for us. With that in mind, let’s focus on one character. Trying to do it without spoilers is probably futile at this point, but I’m interested in seeing what new stories we can generate from these characters. 

As always, if you'd like to play at home--feel free to leave your script in the comments. Thanks and have fun!
