Welcome to our website! We are a team of researchers, based mainly in the UK for now, but one that will soon extend all over the world. This questionnaire is the first step in a much larger academic research project on Disney’s forthcoming Star Wars films, but we are especially interested in what audiences think about this new slate of releases.

Regardless of your feelings towards Star Wars, we want to hear from you! We would love for you to tell us what you know, think and feel about the forthcoming film, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.

We want to hear about your anticipation (or lack thereof), the ways in which you have sought out or avoided information, your plans for watching it, and any hopes, fears or other expectations you have. If you would like a more detailed explanation of the project and the team of researchers behind it, or if you have any questions or concerns about the questionnaire, please click on the “About Us” link to the right of this post.

You can help us in two ways. First, please do the survey yourself. It should take around 15 to 20 minutes to complete, unless you really have a lot to say!

Next, share this web address with your friends and family, and encourage them to do this too. Again: we want to hear from as many people as possible, regardless of how much they care about Star Wars.

Thank you, and May the Force be With You!

The World Star Wars Project team.

UPDATE (17th December 2015): This survey has now closed. Many, many thanks to those of you who completed the questionnaire. Updates and short articles about our findings, as well as news of all the publications that draw on the data, will be posted here.
