It’s no secret that I was an absolute “Star Wars” nut growing up. I played with the actions figures like other girls played with Barbies. So it was both with a mix of excitement and a little anxiety that I approach this new film. I mean, you can’t blame me considering the disaster of those three prequels. Shudder. But, finally, I think I can breathe a sigh of relief. Why? Because not only do the trailers hit all the right nostalgic notes (Han! Leia! Chewie! R2!), they also seem be to giving us something I quite frankly have never seen in a major motion picture action franchise – leading characters who appear to be a woman and a black man. I mean, I knew Daisy Ridley and John Boyega has been cast in leading roles. But, if this trailer is any indication, they are our all-in heroes. Yeah, let that settle in. Now that’s a Force I can definitely get behind.
