Sunday, seven, 8.45pm, M (2015)
With celebrated director J.J. Abrams (Star Trek) taking the helm of the iconic franchise, along with the original trilogy’s stars (Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill), high expectations are met with aplomb. This might be one of the few franchises that gets better with age. Kicking off after Return of the Jedi, Luke Skywalker (Hamill) is on a mission to restore the Jedi Order while Leia (Fisher) and Han Solo (Ford) work with the New Republic against a new potential menace. Also stars Daisy Ridley (pictured) and Adam Driver.
