Disney Hoping And Praying New Star Wars Saga A Hit At The Box Office.

Much fuss and press attention has been brewing around the new Star Wars movie 'The Force Awakens' which George Lucas sold to Disney for a considerable amount of money and no doubt the big wigs at the Disney Corporation will be hoping that now they have bought the franchise it will be a good return for them punter wise as the original Star Wars movies were back in the 70s and 80s.

It had its premier in Los Angeles with the red carpet rolled out for the stalwarts of the action/adventure series Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Mark Hamill, (Luke Skywalker) and Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) as well as new actors John Boyega and Daisey Ridley.

George Lucas was seen chatting to co - writer and director of 'The Force Awakens' JJ Abrams obviously sharing light hearted conversation as both of them were all smiles and laughing. It would appear that Lucas is keen to see this new 'Star Wars' adventure which promises to be the first of many perform well at box offices all over thw world.

JJ Abrams has directed that other space franchise 'Star Trek' which has returned to the original characters in the new movies though of course using new actors to play Kirk, Spock, et al and says he does not wish to interfere or change the 'Star Wars' brand so if this is the case than one would imagine the story of the 'The Force Awakens' will stay true to the genre.

The new leading actors Daisy Ridley and John Boyega in the new movie are both British and to be fair 'Star Wars' has always had British involvement actor wise whether it was Peter Cushing playing Grand Moff Tarkin or David Prowse suiting up to play Darth Vader although Prowse famous for his Green Cross Code adverts in the 70s and 80s where he appeared as Green Cross Man talking about road safety did not voice Vader that was left to James Earl Jones an American.

The fact that John Boyega is black has raised a few eye brows amongst 'Star Wars' fans and Boyega has received abuse on Twitter but Boyega has hit back and said determining who shoud be leading man in the film is not about race but how well the actor does playing the character.

JJ Abrams as a director is known to be fairly left wing in his beliefs and so the cast of 'Star Wars' obviously reflects this in his choice of a black man to play Finn a Stormtrooper who re - thinks his role in life and joins up with Solo, Skywalker and Leia to combat a new dark lord of the Sith with stormtroopers in tow.

I myself always loved the three original 'Star Wars' movies and was not so keen on the prequel movies which followed so as to what I feel and think about this movie I will reserve judgement for the moment.

The British premier of the movie takes places in London this week.
