  • The second of the Star Wars films to be PG-13. The first one being Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005).
  • J.J. Abrams always wanted General Hux to be played by a young actor. He wanted the character to have a sense of tragedy and the fact that he appears to be too young to be in charge of a murderous group added to that. According to Abrams, the character's name was created after he noticed an old, abandoned grave site with the name Hux engraved on the stone.
  • Reunites Oscar Isaac with his Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) costar Adam Driver, as well as his _Ex Machina_ costar Domhnall Gleeson.
  • Although the "good" path of the Force (as opposed to the Dark Side) had been often described as "Light Side" in the Expanded Universe and in video games such as the Knights Of The Old Republic series, this the first official live-action Star Wars movie to reference the term.
  • Tickets went on sale on 19 October 2015, a full 59 days before the movie's release.
