The impending arrival of December leads to eagerness for the end of the semester, winter break, and the holiday season. For fans of the Star Wars franchise, though, it means that the release of Episode VII: The Force Awakens (the first Star Wars movie in a whole decade) is only a few short weeks away!!

Here’s how the anticipation for the new movie is playing out, as told by Star Wars gifs...
