A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, the “Star Wars” characters would have made for an interesting movie about meetings. Since no Force is strong enough to make that happen, we’ll imagine how it would have played out in real life. Because “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” doesn’t open until later this week, we can’t predict where the new stars fit in.
