Ah, I can’t wait for Saturday morning! Tomorrow I will be seeing Rogue One: A Star Wars Movie, the day after it has opened across the nation.
I saw the Force Awakens last year and loved it. We got Poe, Rey, Finn, BB-8, lost Han (spoiler alert), but it amazing as the series came back to life with new characters, new life, and even more fun. But this one is going to be different. In fact, if it lives up to the hype, it could be the realest Star Wars movie and let me explain my reasoning for this.
In the past, we have had the Jedi, Luke, Yoda, Obi-Wan, and many others. Well now, they don’t exist in this movie. In their place and in place of the regulars we have learned to love over the years, is a group of rebels, people that have to fight with their own wits and abilities and must complete a task that is thought near impossible by the Alliance. Jyn Erso and her crew have to get the plans for the Death Star and well, that should be impossible, but we know they do succeed. Yet what cost will they pay? Will they be taken by the Empire?
I can’t wait to see this film and from what I’m reading, its already living up to the hype. I’m prepared for a more gritty, down and dirty, war type movie compared to the Jedi and mystic powers we have grown accustomed to in the previous movies.
