Well, now they’ve gone ahead and applied science to it. For everyone who’s been saying that The Force Awakens follows the plot of A New Hope too closely, well, you’ve got more evidence to support your theory.
Wired magazine recently covered the work of Derek Ruths from McGill University in The Force Awakens and A New Hope Are More Similar Than You Think. His work focuses on the characters, and how often they interact (or don’t) in The Force Awakens and A New Hope.
