Did you know? The production had a preference for using real locations and miniature models over green-screens and computer-generated imagery whenever possible in order to make the film aesthetically similar to the original Star Wars trilogy Read More
*SPOILER*  Awesome....
on

Spoiler Alert☠☠☠☠☠

A great Revive for the franchise and John Williams was amazing as always with his BG scores
JJ was amazing using Practual effects throughout the movie which kinda made me feel nostalgic
Daisy Ridley being her first movie did an excellent job carrying the whole movie in her shoulders
Not just Daisy Ridley,
John Boyega,And Adam driver did an amazing job and especially Oscar Isaac
A Star Wars movie after a long time with good dialogues which few are amazing and quotable
Soooooo much of Easter eggs of the Prequels and the originals and a good thought by JJ and Disney for reviving and showing the greatness in the prequel films
More than any other SW movie this movie had so much of humour content and Emotional moments
Tbh I teared up when Han Solo revealed his sons name and when he died in the hands of his son😭
And one of the fab moments for me was the final 2 mins of the movie(Luke😍😍😍)
This movie deserves 5/5 but......
Few things which let down this movie was
1). A planet/System destroying Super weapon again and it's destroyed by igniting the main reactor which we have seen many times in SW(But still this time they had a lot work to do to destroy the Base)
2). The first few mins of the movie was soo misplaced and no one won't understand who's tat old man who looks like Alec Guinness.How did he get the portion of the map of some Un charted system where Luke is in Exile.How does he know about Kylo Rens origins
3). Captain Phasma was amazing but had a really short screen time.Like Maul or Boba fett

Overall:
The force is strong with this one
Must watch

Revealing Mistakes
During several scenes we see that light sabers can easily slice through metal and trees leaving scorched wounds yet somehow Fin manages to be put into some kind of coma with all limbs intact

Continuity
In bar scene Rey is eating a snack that looks like a taco with romanesco, a very distinctive broccoli/cauliflower relative that looks futuristic with its clear evocation of fractals. After a one-second cutaway, we come back to her eating and the same romanesco-based taco is in her hand. Then after a similar short cutaway we come back and she has an entirely new snack in her hand that, while, maintaining the same color scheme, does not have any romanesco and looks like a kind of hemispherical pastry with filling in the middle

Continuity
When Kylo and Rey fighting in the woods. Kylo is only 3 feet away from Rey on the ground and wounded. Then in the same seen once the ground collapse he's 30 feet away and Rey never moved

Continuity
Han and Leia embrace as they say goodbye before the attack on the Starkiller base. In the first shot Han's hand is on Leia's head, partially covering Leia's right ear. When the shot changes Han's hand has jumped to be around the back of Leia's neck

Continuity
Rey repairs parts of the Millennium Falcon, ripping an electrical device apart. In one shot the cables hang loose down that device. In another shot the cables are shown somewhere else

Continuity
Poe Dameron is bloodied while being interrogated by Kylo Ren. However when Kylo pulls him from the interrogation chair, his face is all cleaned up. When they enter the hall he is even cleaner
Trivia:
According to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, when Harrison Ford and Chewbacca set foot in the Millennium Falcon set, every person on set was stunned. Kennedy claims that there must have been 200 people who were completely quiet, due to the iconic presence of Ford and Chewbacca back on Han Solo's ship

Mark Hamill claimed George Lucas nonchalantly told him over lunch a new Star Wars trilogy was going to be made by Disney, and if he did not want to be involved, Luke Skywalker would simply be written out of the script. However, Hamill immediately agreed to reprise the role

The production had a preference for using real locations and miniature models over green-screens and computer-generated imagery whenever possible in order to make the film aesthetically similar to the original Star Wars trilogy

The first character, officially confirmed for Star Wars Episode VII, was the R2-D2, the blue astromech droid purchased by Luke Skywalker many years ago, which also so happened to be Luke’s mother’s favorite droid years before that.

Supervising sound editor Matthew Wood of Skywalker Sound has a history with Star Wars and George Lucas; he got his start as an Assistant Editor on 'The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles', and was Supervising Sound Editor on the last two Star Wars movies, in addition to providing the voices of Magaloof, Seboca and General Grievous. He worked with Ben Burtt on 'WALL E' and collaborated with JJ on 'Super 8' and 'Star Trek Into Darkness'.

Lucas had story treatments for Episode VII (as well as for VIII and IX) which he turned over to Disney chairman, Bob Iger around the time LucasFilm was sold to Disney.

This is the first 'Star Wars' movie to have more than one producer: JJ Abrams and Bryan Burk.

Creator George Lucas stated the transition from LucasFilm to Disney was a way to "pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers."

On September 26th, 2013, it was confirmed that the film will be partially shot in IMAX.

The first 'Star Wars' film to be distributed by Walt Disney Pictures.

This is the first JJ Abrams film not to have a musical score by Michael Giacchino. Aptly enough, Giacchino had stated in an interview that he would rather hear the music of John Williams for a new 'Star Wars' film than his own.

In summer 2013, it was revealed both Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill had begun a vigorous regimen of diet, exercise and stunt training to prepare for their roles of Leia and Luke, respectively.

Star Wars: Episode VII continues the tradition of being shot on film.

Dan Mindel has previously collaborated with JJ Abrams on 'Mission: Impossible III', 'Star Trek', and 'Star Trek Into Darkness'.

In October 2013, Disney announced publicly that screenwriter Michael Arndt was officially off Star Wars Episode VII, and that director JJ Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan were busy working on the current screenplay.

John Williams returns to score for this movie, after providing the music for the previous installments.
