I love movies, but I do confess that there are some highly regarded films I’ve never watched – and a few more I may never seriously consider watching. Unfortunately all Star Wars films fall into this category.
Fantasy is simply not my favourite genre. In fact, I was quite sure that I’d probably never get round to watching a single Star Wars film. Unless…
…I met a really impassioned fan who somehow finally managed to convince me to put my aversion to fantasy film aside.
What I didn’t count on was that, that very person might just be new Star Wars writer / director J.J. Abrams.
I didn’t actually meet him, but I have seen the first 60 seconds of the new Star Wars Episode 7 – The Force Awakens teaser trailer:
I’m making no promises, of course. But when that next trailer does arrive, attention I will pay.
