If you haven’t seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens and don’t want to know what old favourites Han Solo, Leia, Luke and Chewbacca, along with newcomers Rey, Finn and Kylo Ren, have been up to in the latest instalment of the iconic sci-fi adventure, look away now.
It’s well-established that Star Wars fans have a Death Star-sized loathing of plot spoilers. Our stellar review acknowledged this, teasing: “Part of you probably doesn’t even want to watch it, because that flutter of anticipation, that hope that for a couple of hours you might capture the ghost of your childhood self and regain a way of seeing that you know is gone forever, is too precious. The wait is the sweetest part.” Similarly, in their review The Guardian announced that “this notice will be a space space… with a trigger warning only for basic plot points and material already in the public domain.” The Telegraph‘s reviewer promised “I’ll avoid straying into spoiler territory”, then veered perilously close to doing just that.
Yet this dark side driver has no such decorum, emblazoning his or her back window with one of the biggest plot points for the new movie. The Force is not strong with this one. The picture has been posted to Reddit, with outraged readers venting their frustration at the egregious vehicle.
