After a 10-year wait, the seventh installment of the legendary franchise is here! Set 30 years after Return of the Jedi, the film finds the galaxy still at war, with newbies Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) leading the Resistance against the First Order, an offshoot of the evil Empire.

That would cause them to flop backwards, saying things to each other like: Wow, man. Try a hit of three-starboard tank. That’s real high-grade stuff in there, man. Too much, man. too much. And then they would float off around the deck.
