The seventh installment of Disney/Lucasfilm's epic franchise, "The Force Awakens" storyline centers around several new characters, as well as many of the original cast members such as Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

The beginning of the new trilogy takes place 30 years after the end of Episode VI: "Return of the Jedi." Co-writer and director J.J. Abrams is expected to inject some fresh energy into the series, after successful past credits such as two "Star Trek" movies and "Super 8."

May the Force be with you.
