I have been writing this “Star Wars” blog since May 4 and will continue until “Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens” opens in December. The question is whether that’s enough to make me a “selected journalist.”

Disney will hold the world premiere of the new “Star Wars” movie in Los Angeles on Dec. 14. That’s the Monday before the movie is set to open on Dec. 18.

The Dec. 18 date is one day after the movie opens in the United Kingdom.

Look for “The Force Awakens” to destroy box office numbers when it opens. So, it really doesn’t need extra press. But, it would be nice to be part of the selected journalists who see the movie early.
