It’s hard to believe, but a mere 365 days remain until the next Star Wars film hits theaters.
To celebrate, Star Wars fans everywhere are taking part in a #TheForceAges hashtag on social media. Our friends at JediNews explain it well:
365 days. That’s a whole ‘nother year to wait until The Force Awakens arrives in cinemas, and Lucasfilm’s Matt Martin started a Twitter Selfie campaign today by to see how much he would age between today and when The Force Awakens comes out.
We plan to compile all the images we can find from people who participate. If you want to participate all you have to do is post a picture of you with a sign that says “This is me one year from Star Wars The Force Awakens” and use the hashtag ?#TheForceAges?.
So what are you waiting for? Tweet those selfies! I did.

On this episode of the Star Wars Report your hosts Mark, Riley and Bethany returned, along with special guests Teresa of Fangirl Next Door and Jason of The Wampa’s Lair. On this episode, which was recorded live, we discussed the breaking news (or should we say rumors) that J.J. Abrams will indeed be directing Star Wars Episode VII. What was so much fun about this was discussing it with an awesome live audience literally as the news was continuing to update!
We also talked about the new Darth Maul book that was announced today, Maul: Lockdown, by Joe Schreiber of Death Troopers fame.
One topic covered in this episode was the Twitter Star Wars Fansite Seminar, an ongoing Twitter discussion with many different fansites and their representatives on how to best manage a Star Wars fansite. Yours truly also had great fun participating in this!
Though it was hectic, it was great fun to record live, while following the news and interacting with everyone!
May the Force be ever with you!
