The seventh installment of 'Star Wars' has to be one of the most anticipated series release of all movie history. This story has an incredible group of devout followers that will not hesitate to wait in line for hours, sometimes days, and spend however much money it requires to see anything 'Star Wars' related. With the release set to take place sometime within the next year, there is plenty of talk as to if 'J.J Abrams' will be able to carry on the legacy that is so highly held.

Along with the return of characters such as 'Mark Hamill', 'Harrison Ford' and 'Carrie Fisher', there has also been talk of several others rejoining the original iconic family. And of course, it wouldn't be right without Chewbacca, R2D2 and C3PO. 'Abrams' seems to be aiming at all of the die hard, old-school fans with re-introducing these characters back into the plot, and I don't blame him. You cant go wrong with the great original. Unless were talking 'Indiana Jones'. But lets not go there.

'The Wrap' a pop culture news group, did a report based on how many people that have already claimed they will definitely be seeing the movie. There reports show the movie is scheduled to hit in the area of 1.5 to 2 billion dollars. Seeing that only a few movies have been let in to this upper echelon of entertainment, I believe this will easily be one of the highest box office films, or even the highest profit making film of all movie history. If... And that is IF, 'Abrams' can pull off mixing the old with the new in this prequel.

It's hard to believe 'George Lucas's' 1977's 'Star Wars' saga was not even a well know anticipated film when it was released. After it was seen it spread like crazy and lead to the following it has today. I will admit, watching the original movie now days is a bit hard to bare, due to the cheesy acting and out dated graphics. But no doubt I have great respect for the series.

All in all, I will not be one of the people camping out in front of the theater to be the first to see this movie. But, I will definitely be contributing by sixteen dollars when the commotion dies down.
