Trivia

Rey's instantly rising bread was created practically without the aid of any visual effects. According to special effects supervisor Chris Corbould, his team spent several months working on the effect, and accomplished it by using a suction pump to remove the liquid, and an air pump to inflate the bread.

Goofs

Both Maz and Ren talk about Luke's lightsaber being Luke's and his father's before him. Luke lost his father's light saber on Cloud City when Vader cut off his hand in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. In Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi he made a new one and it was green, not blue as his father's original one was. However, it is clear that the original blue lightsaber was somehow recovered from Cloud City by means unknown (even Maz herself states that it is an explanation for another time). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Lor San Tekka: This will begin to make things right. I've traveled too far and seen too much to ignore the despair in the galaxy. Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.
Poe Dameron: Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for a long time.
Lor San Tekka: Oh, the General? To me, she is royalty.
Poe Dameron: Well, she certainly is that.

A message to Disney and Mr. Rip Off Abrams: do not make movies if you do not have any ideas. Yes, that is how it works.

A message to the public: stop being robots and showing up and paying to watch these sequels and franchise films that SUCK. They are stupid. Then again you are the ones who try to poison your children by taking them to McDonalds as a "treat."

This film was bad.
