In a move that honestly doesn’t surprise us, Star Wars sequel The Force Awakens has been excluded from the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.

That’s right, Canada is nowhere to be found.
Are you as peeved as we are? Show it by tweeting #AddStarWarsTheForceAwakensToThe2015TorontoInternationalFilmFestivalLineup now. If it trends, we could bring about the change Star Wars fans (and Americans) deserve. To infinity and beyond!
