The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is a minivan but it doesn’t seem like a typical minivan. My parents once owned a 1989 Dodge Caravan and were thrilled the day they purchased it.

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens being the biggest in the series, it’s gotten me thinking about the influence of this incredible franchise on our lives.
