The other day I was on Hollywood Boulevard for the red carpet premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I asked Oscar Isaac, who plays X-wing pilot Poe Dameron in the new movie, what makes Star Wars different from other movie franchises. “I think a sense of spirituality,” he said. “At the core of this is the idea of the Force. There’s more than what we see. There’s more than the material world.”

Minutes later, I was talking to Lawrence Kasdan, who co-wrote The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and now Force Awakens. He remembered working on those original movies, a long time ago. “It was all about fun,” he said. “It was about delight.”
