Star Wars Episode VII is out in theaters and breaking records across the world, but the one thing it isn’t doing is filling in all the gaps from the 30 or so years that passed between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. As savvy movie goers, we know that not everything is going to be explained in the first of three new Star Wars films, but some of the Star Wars The Force Awakens setups are too big to not discuss. Like, who are Rey’s parents? And what’s up with Luke? Did he retire? Is there a Jedi 401K? You’ll find these questions and more on this very curious list of Star Wars The Force Awakens unanswered questions.
With a (mostly) brand new cast of characters popping up in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there are also a slew of mysterious backstories to wade through, and questions that may or may not be answered in Episodes XIII and IX. We wouldn’t be so worried about whether or not our questions would be answered if J.J. Abrams didn’t also make Lost, which answered like, none of the questions. Some of the questions on this list are definitely going to be answered in the following films, but we’re worried that a few things (like the construction of Starkiller base) might go unanswered forever. Although, we’ll take a few unanswered questions if it means we get three more awesome Star Wars films.Vote up the unanswered questions in Star Wars Episode VII that you most want to see answered, and leave us a comment with your own burning questions from The Force Awakens.
