    Episode 7 - The Force Awakens - will be published in December of this year.

    (Yep, I know, that will give me the Rick Olie award, but I can't find a better beginning for this thread... [face_blush] )

    I know that several FanForce groups are planing meetings for this event already and it's a lot of fun to spend time with fellow SW fans. I attented to quite some in the past! So my advice to all new and old members is: Join those meetings and have a good time watching The Force Awakens with other Star Wars fans! You won't get the chance again until Ep8. ;)

    Since it's not always easy to find the appropriated meeting threads, I like to create a list of them here. This way you can find one at your place fast. But I need YOUR help. If you find a thread about meeting up for Ep7, which isn't listed in here, please, post it here or send me a PM. I'll add it!

    Thanks for your help and have lots of fun waiting for The Force Awakens, the meetings and everything! :D

    The list of where SW fans are organising meetings for watching The Force Awakens together:


    Europe:

    Nordic Countries: Nordic Countries Episode VII meeting
    FF UK: London: Gatherings for the Force Awakens?
    German Speaking FanForce: Episode VII Meeting
    FF France: FFF Signal : Sortie parisienne pour l'episode 7


    USA:

    South East - Chattanooga, TN: 2015-12-17 - Star Wars Episode VII
    South East - Middle Georgia: The Force Awakens Line Up
    North East - Washington, DC: Star Wars - The Force Awakens Midnight Premiere @ Alamo Drafthouse One Loudoun
    Denver, Co: The Force Awakens Premiere - Continental RPX
    Mid West - Lou KY: The Force Awakens outing planning thread

    This sounds really fun....I'll see what I can do, I can't promise anything....it is in the middle of stressful time for me when the movie comes out....terminal exams and other stuff...

    I was actually planning to gather scadinavian SW fans to watch the movie when it comes out here in Norway. Anyone interested in joining me?

    Edit:
    I have posted a thread about that at the Nordic Countries section.

    Often it's in the wrong time of the year... ;) But usually it's just one day and everyone needs a break every now and then, so... there's your perfect excuse! ;) :D

    Or maybe there's one already. Looking forward to your post with the link. :)

    Thanks, Jedi Knight Kenobiwan! Added! :D

    Flapjack4, I just can tell you that meetings are cool! Best you participate a bit beforehand. The more you get to know everyone and the more fun you have. :)

    Hi I am in the UK and just posted on the UK FanForce link for a possible meet-up. Realistically London is going to be the best place to aim for so if there any any UK fans out there interested then get posting as there is not much activity on that board now. I would love to come and see the film in a warmer climate since December is always so cold in the UK;.Miami or somewhere like that would be nice...but doubt I could afford the plane fare/accommodation...

    I just can second it. It's fun, it's cool to watch SW with other fans!!

    Traveling to a warmer destination would be cool (cool? Haha :p ), but I can't afford that as well.

    I really can't wait till the movie comes out, but I want to read the novelization if I can before I go see the movie, because I have come to find out that the books give you more of a back story or catch a reader up better than a movie does sometimes, also, the novel gives you more details on what is going on.

    Thanks! I'm a new member and would love to experience that with other members. I'm based in London and will definitely try my best to go!:)

    I was also wondering if you would be kind enough to watch the parody below, share and why not subscribe! Cheers!

    Skiara, this was a very good idea of yours, to link out to various Fan Force' meeting threads. Worked for me!
