Star Wars: The Force Awakens was pretty much pure wish fulfilment for me, but there was one thing that it didn’t do for me, and I both hate and love the movie for it. Everything from here on out is a spoiler, so turn back if you haven’t seen the movie yet!
The one thing I didn’t get to see was the original three main characters back together again. I thought for sure I would see Luke, Leia and Han hanging out, but it didn’t happen. What we got instead was the sendoff of one of the most beloved Star Wars characters of all time played perfectly by Harrison Ford. Han trying to turn his son back to the Light at the end of the film was brilliant and heartbreaking. It took a few days after watching the film to realize that I wouldn’t be able to see Han and Luke on the Falcon one last time.
I am very happy with the way the movie turned out, so I don’t wish to change anything, but not getting to see Solo rib on Skywalker again is a sobering thought. I can only hope that Luke will at least get to see Leia, but it doesn’t look like we have any guaranties of that.
