My son and I went to see "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", this past weekend. In the closing credits, it was noted that the film was shot on Kodak movie film. This is a bit ironic, because "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" was, I believe, the first major movie to be shot entirely on digital. Perhaps the fact that it was shot on film has something to do with something a lot of people are saying about the latest installment in the Star Wars franchise: it is very remeniscent of the original trilogy. It has the same feel as Star Wars: A New Hope from 1977.
