Starring an ensemble cast including several from the original trilogy, the film marks the start of a new saga in the franchise, and is the first Star Wars film to be released after Disney acquired the rights from George Lucas. The film broke Thursday night preview records, raking in $57 million, and is expected to easily break the $1 billion gross mark, possibly even the $2 billion mark.

Sequels have already been planned for release in 2017 and 2019, along with standalone films featuring other groups and characters in the Star Wars universe.
