Until now, all of the talk about “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has seemed like little more than just talk. Now, it really feels like the reality another film in the “Star Wars” franchise has started to get heated.

One reason is that tickets are now on sale. You not only can purchase tickets for the opening of “The Force Awakens” but several theaters will be broadcasting marathons of the six previous films.

It also feels like a reality because the official poster has been released. It not only features several of the new characters including Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) but familiar characters from past movies including Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher).

The day draws closer.
