Star Wars isn’t new. In the late 1970s, the world was introduced to the fantastical galaxy of the future created George Lucas, in which humans, robots and other forms of life coexist, sometimes in harmony but most times not, as the title suggests. Still, with its most recent release, The Force Awakens, the famous franchise is gaining even greater popularity with old and new fans. Undeniably the biggest film of the last year, The Force Awakens continues to break records, having already made 2015 the highest ever box office to date, and tracking to shatter a previous record established by the film Avatar as the highest grossing film in American and Canadian history.
