From someone how hasn't watched any other star wars movie. My husband and sons like star wars and were very excited about the new film. I was unsure at first whether to join them at the cinema to watch this as its really not my kind of film, anyway, I thought Id go to get a better understanding of my sons favourite toys etc.
The film was fantastic, kept me awake and very entertained. There wasn't one scene that I felt bored in and I was very entertained at the whole film and I knew my sons (7 and 4) were also very entertained by it. There is no need to have watched the other films as I understood what was happening and was gutted when a main character was killed. We were all on the edge of our seat and were cheering for Rey to win the battle with Ren. When the next film comes out I will be there on opening day!
