Alright, Disney, we get it: There's a new Star Wars filmcoming out. Star Wars:The Force Awakens opens in movietheaters around the world on Friday, December 18, and if you haven't seen any advertisement for the film, you probably haven't been outside in the past six months.
It has been 10 years since the last installment of thefranchise was released, and over 30 years since the original movie hit theaters. Suffice it to say, people are excited.Star Wars fans have been lining up outside the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood since Saturday, December 5, more than two weeks before the The Force Awakens will debut.
From bus stops to billboards, ads for the long-awaitedsequel are everywhere, but Disney is seriously starting to go overboard with the movie's merchandising. Star Wars oranges, really? We've got a bad feeling about this...
No matter how much we love Star Wars, do we actually need these product tie-ins?
