If you know me at all, then you know I was there opening night to see Star Wars Episode VII. It completely lived up to the hype and then some. If you haven’t seen it yet then I suggest you see it asap, especially if you’re about to read this spoiler stuffed list. Kind of a weird move on your part to click this article if you haven’t seen the movie yet.
Anyway, The Force Awakens continued the Star Wars story perfectly but it also created more questions and speculation for Episode 8. It’s never too early to begin thinking about a movie that won’t come out for another 16 months. Here are 50 questions that have rattling in my brain.
