5 Reasons Star Wars is the perfect family Christmas film

Christmas is about family, about memories, about traditions both old and new. Christmas is about having fun and spending time with the people you love, and nothing makes memories like cinema. 

With so much to do at Christmas it may seem like there aren't enough hours in the day. But if you want something that will bring the family together, why not check out Star Wars: The Last Jedi... You won't be disappointed

1) Pass on the torch (or Lightsaber) to the next generation. 

For 40 years Star Wars has been forging itself into the hearts of generations. And now the kids who were thrilled by the original saga are the adults of today,  and can pass on the memories to their own kids, creating a shared passion that will last forever. 

2) Perfect for kids and big kids alike

Action, drama, cute animals, an ongoing legacy, futuristic story, iconic characters, colourful, female heroes, complicated baddies... Starwars truly has something for all ages, from 7 to 70, there is something universal in Starwars that has been entertaining millions for 40 years and will always continue to do so. 

3) It's a damn good film

5 stars from the Telegraph, 5 Stars from the Times, 5 Stars from Time out... Need we go on?

4) Nothing makes a lasting impression like the big screen

If you want to give your kids a memory that they will never forget, something they can tell their kids about in years to come, it has to be the big screen. The woosh of the Millennium Falcon. The sound of two lightsabers fighting. The Force theme. Chewbacca roaring. These things and even more only make sense on the big screen.

5) Make cinema a Christmas tradition

Since The Force Awakens, the Star Wars saga has settled into a groove, arriving every year at Christmas. And let’s face it: it’s the perfect occasion to invite your mother-in-law and cherub-faced nephews to the cinema, relax and prepare for the world’s liveliest family debates as you flood out of the cinema. Is Han Solo cooler than Poe Dameron? Is Chewbacca plushier than the Porgs? OMG, what do you think it’s going to happen next?  Best of all, ODEON’s giving great-value family tickets, so you won’t need to take out a loan from a Tatooine crime lord, and offers you some exciting promotions for real fans!
