Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens
By Alan Dean Foster

force-awakensAlan Dean Foster is a screen-to-page veteran with dozens of novelization credits to his name, including such titles as Alien, The Thing, and even, “a long time ago,” the original Star Wars novel, whose basic plot is re-heated and served up here as The Force Awakens.

It was during the making of that first part of the franchise, or Episode IV, that Harrison Ford famously said of the screenplay, to its author George Lucas, “you can type this shit, George, but you can’t say it.” The same oddly engaging blend of fast, swashbuckling action and lithic dialogue is still very much of the essence here as the next generation of star warriors gets hip to the Force and tries to save the universe. A section of colour photos from the movie is included.
