According to the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens Visual Dictionary," the helmet Rey wears belonged to an X-wing pilot named Captain Dosmit Ræh, who flew for the Tierfon Yellow Aces. See more »
When the falcon is caught in the tractor beam, in the shot after Finn says "it's the First Order," the shot cuts to Rey saying "What do we do? There must be something." There is a strand of hair on the right side of her head, and as the shot ends, the tip of the strand is pointing away downwards. In the next shot, the tip of the strand is suddenly curled up and closer to her neck. See more »
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.
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.
Well, she certainly is that.

Only in Hollywood someone could be so uncreative, so unoriginal, so stupid
Yet have a job and make money like Jar Jar Abrams.
I was extremely excited about seeing Episode VII, a new Star Wars! Wow, I thought, we could really use some morals, hope, imagination and power in these Trumpian dark and sad times. Of course, the Star Wars faithful and movie fans in general both had great anticipation for this film.
It seems that Disney and JJ Abrams are more interested in making money outright than investing or thinking about the Star Wars future. Creating a remake with cheap amateurish actors and adding no new elements except the said ugly actors rather than telling a compelling story is very disappointing. There just wasn't any storytelling or characterization material in the script for the audience to latch onto. Where is the power and passion? Where's the grand acting? Where is the sense of awe? All we got here is a magical Disney princess and a sewage mule!
Overall, I think I was disappointed because Star Wars and its logo were attached. In retrospect I should have known this is a bait and witch operation and with JJ Abrams attached it will be finnicky attempt at rehash that will go nowhere. Just a sad remake.
