MPR Cube Critic Stephanie Curtis joins Jade and Sean McPherson to talk about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you want to avoid spoiler alerts of any kind about this little-known space documentary, do not listen to this audio or read this page.

In 1977, Stephanie saw the opening of Star Wars as a child – then came back more than a few times to see it again. "My parents were lovely people who would take us to the mall, drop us off, and let us watch it over and over," she said.

Stephanie says Star Wars: The Force Awakens does the series justice.

With actors performing on giant sets and puppets in bar scenes, Stephanie says it feels like the first two movies of the series.

"It is a great, fun film and I can't wait to bring my kids to see it," Stephanie said. "They're going to be out of their minds."
