Star Wars The Force Awakens

A long time ago at a drive-in, far, far away... 
I couldn't tell you how many times I watched The Empire Strikes Back. A good friend of mine worked the concession stand and his sister the ticket booth at The Hi-M Drive-In Theatre that was once located in Springfield Mo. I'd take and drop him off, then come back later and of course his sister would let me in for free to watch the shows till it was time for him to get off work. The Empire Strikes Back is the one that I remember the most, I suppose because it ran for so long plus I liked the move anyway.
Today while watching the news, I learned of the trailer for the new Star Wars The Force Awakens to be released sometime in December, that being the one bad thing unless we have a mild December here in Ga.. Either way I'm defiantly planning on taking the family to see it at the drive-in when it shows.
With the leap in computer generated graphics since then, the special effects should be light years, no pun intended of course, over the previous films in the series. Of course back then the graphics were state of the art. This will surely be one of the most anticipated movie releases for my generation as well as for those who have grown up only having seen them on VHS or DVD.

May The Force be with you, the management.
