In the Wake of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, critics and audiences couldn’t help but notice how much its plot mirrored the original Star Wars from 40 years ago. A frustrated desert-dweller journeys away from their home planet for the first time? Check. Joins up with a band of smugglers and encounters a vast array of alien races? Check. Meets the Rebel Alliance, and helps take down a fearsomely powerful outpost after the sacrifice of a beloved hero? Check. The similarities can be overwhelming.
