The Force Awakens – level 1

26-10-2015 15:00

There is a new “Star Wars” movie. It is coming to cinemas in December. It is called “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.

It is the seventh film in the series. It is directed by J. J. Abrams.

The sixth film is “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi”. The story of the new film happens 30 years after the sixth film.

There is a trailer for this newest movie. It looks good.

Difficult words: series (a number of something), direct (to make a film; control everything about it), trailer (a short video which shows parts of a new film).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Are you a fan of Star Wars?
