Star Wars fans will be flocking to the flicks over the next few weeks to see the next instalment of the epic saga.

The new film, Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens, opens on Thursday, December 17 and features the return of everyone’s favourite galactic wise guy Han Solo and his walking carpet of a best pal Chewbacca, Princess Leia, C3P0 and R2D2 and a whole host of new faces.

The Falkirk Herald wants to know how people will be marking this special occasion – will you be dressing up as your favourite character or holding a special Star Wars party?

And what are your hopes for this new film – do you think it will it be better or worse than the original three tales or at least better than the second trilogy? And where the heck is Luke Skywalker?
