Max von Sydow had played Ming the Merciless in Flash Gordon (1980) and Dr. Liet Kynes in Dune (1984). The Flash Gordon serials was one of George Lucas' influences behind Star Wars, and it had been speculated, that "Dune" by Frank Herbert, had also been an influence behind Star Wars. See more »
During the escape from Jakku, the Millennium Falcon cuts its engines and flips upside down so Finn can shoot the TIE fighter. The Falcon is free-falling (upside down) and about to hit the ground. The scene cuts to Rey throwing the throttle lever forward. Then the scene cuts back to the Falcon, still falling, and facing the same direction as before, except now it is right-side up (note location of the cockpit), the engines come on, and they fly away.

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.

The end credits music is slightly different on the Blu-Ray version of the film - we get to hear a bit more of Rey's theme than what we heard in the theatrical version. See more »
Disney has subverted Star Wars into one of its lame and boring childish films aimed at selling toys to preteens. I am sure McDonalds was poisoning more people than ever before by hawking Star Wars toys from Disney.
Not a film for adults.
