I do not understand
Disney has money. Disney has lots of money. Why didn't they hire a good director and good actors? Why do they bring inferior amateurs to film and play in Star Wars? Could someone explain this to me? Also, whya re they remaking and yet calling it a new episode. It is so confusing that the rebels won and now they are rebels again. Could someone tell me?

Trivia

During the infiltration of Starkiller Base, a stormtrooper can be heard saying, "We think they may be splitting up", on his comm system. The same line was spoken during the escape from the Death Star, when Obi-wan Kenobi is sneaking through the station corridors.


Quotes

Lor San Tekka: This will begin to make things right. I've traveled too far and seen too much to ignore the despair in the galaxy. Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.
Poe Dameron: Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for ...


Goofs

Han Solo says that he wasn't sure that the Jedi were real, but that it was all true, or something similar. However, he was alive during the events of episodes 1-3, so he should have been aware of them, and of what they were capable of. So for him to say that he didn't believe in them, we would have to accept that he had his head in the sand for nearly 20 years. However, in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), Solo specifically says "Kid, I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other, and I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen *anything* to make me believe that there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. 'Cause no mystical energy field controls *my* destiny. It's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense", making it clear that, while Solo may have been alive during the events of Episodes I through III, at least as late as the beginning of Episode IV, he didn't believe in the Force or the Jedi. Of course, his opinion has changed by the end of Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983).


Crazy Credits

The stars that form the backdrop for the end credits are exactly the same stars as in the beginning of the movie.


Alternate Versions

IMAX releases presented the five-minute sequence in which Rey and Finn escape Jakku in the Millennium Falcon (which was shot with IMAX 70mm cameras) in an opened aspect ratio compared to the rest of the film.
