IN MY LIFE
I may have told you that I got to do something pretty special on Monday: watch a preview of Lucasfilm’s highly anticipated, first-ever standalone Star Wars adventure, ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY…and I’m excited to announce it’s now playing in theaters everywhere!
If you’ve been hiding under a rock and don’t know the premise behind ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, here is a synopsis:
In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
When I walked out of the movie and they asked what I thought, all I could say was “it’s everything you’d want and nothing you’d expect”. In the beginning of the film, there was some new music and a LOT of new characters and places that took me awhile to keep up with, but about a third of the way into it, I was hooked.
And you DEFINITELY won’t believe how it all comes together in the final minutes!
You can watch a feature starring the female lead character, Jyn Erso, here: https://youtu.be/xynhtKLc88E
All that to say, any and every Star Wars fan will want to check out this film…although I must admit I’m still literally on the edge of a cliff after last December’s release wanting to know what happened to Luke Skywalker 😃 May the Force be with you!
On a side note, my son is competing in the National Chess tournament this weekend, so any force-like vibes you can send his way would be appreciated!
