Okay, I know what you want to know! Was it any good? Will I like it?
YES! YOU’RE GOING TO LOVE IT! I know you want to know if Luke Skywalker is in this one. Is Princess Lea in this one? What about Darth Vader? Well, I can’t tell you that in good conscience. You’re just going to have to go see it!
What can I tell you? It’s really good! I was sitting on the edge of my seat! I laughed—there’s some funny parts and as always—really great characters. You’ll meet some new characters in the Star Wars story and you will love them! There’s a new heroine, named Jyn Erso, who’s as independent as she is beautiful. There’s a new droid on the scene and his name is K-2SO. He’s a reprogrammed droid from the Imperial army. He’s completely loyal and loveable.
My favorite character was Chirrut, played by Donnie Yen. Chirrut is a blind spiritual warrior. He may be blind, but don’t underestimate him! His mantra is, “I am with the force and the force is with me!” Indeed, the force is strong with Chirrut! He’s a rebel fighter that believes in the cause of the rebels.
This movie didn’t have as much character development as some of the other Star Wars films. This went right into the plot and packed some much into a little over two hours. I don’t remember any slow parts of the movie—it left me nearly breathless between scenes.
There are many twists and turns in this Star Wars movie. This is where I learned more about the Death Star and why it’s called the Death Star. You’ll recognize some cameo appearances from a few of the original Star Wars staples. This movie filled in some of the gaps from the other movies and tied everything together nicely while leaving me wanting MORE, as the credits rolled. As much as it explained, it left me with more questions. “When will Princess Lea give R2D2 the Death Star plans?” as well as many other questions. I cannot wait until the next movie in the series!
If you’re a Star Wars fan, you’re going to love the movie. Even if you’re not a Star Wars fan, you’ll love the movie! This was my favorite of the Star Wars movies since the original series! Everything about the movie was fantastic, from the computer graphics to special effects, to the cast, to the musical score! I got chills watching it! Really well done!
Star Wars Rogue One opens in theaters this Friday, December 16. You won’t be disappointed!
