Star Wars Screening For Troops Overseas

Star Wars is more than just a “movie”, for many of us, it’s an ideal of hope that has inspired us since we were kids. Deployed troops all over the world won't get a chance to see the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, potentially the biggest blockbuster in history and something we've all been anticipating for over 20 years. Troops risk their lives 24/7 for our country, so we, U.S. citizens can enjoy freedom and not have to think twice about watching the upcoming Star Wars movie, or spending the holidays with our family. Thousands of U.S. Troops are currently deployed in the Middle East and they should not be left out of such a monumental experience, especially during the holiday season when they are sacrificing being away from home and their families.

It’s a shame that those fighting for our freedoms won't be able to see this film until either they return home or it is released on blue ray and DVD. Having the chance to screen the movie, even after the theatrical release would be a huge moral booster especially during this holiday season; where many troops will not be with their own families. We are petitioning to Disney for the chance for thousands of deployed American soldiers to watch this film and let them escape the world they are in currently and put a smile on everyone's face, even just for a couple hours. That is the whole point of a movie, and especially Star Wars. So Disney please support your troops with this one special gift and boost the moral this holiday season overseas! Thank you everyone who signs this petition and may the force be with you!
