An impressive addition to the famous Star Wars series, “Rogue One” kept us on the edge of our seats and left us wanting more. A group of unlikely heroes are forced to band together in attempt to destroy or steal the plans to the Death Star, a weapon with the power and strength to destroy an entire planet.

Brave heroes that were seemingly brought together by fate take matters into their own hands using inside sources and pure courage. Their mission is ambitious, and although characters throughout the movie are hesitant to assist the cause due to their apparent lack of power and small numbers by comparison, the movie highlights what can happen when seemingly weak forces are brought together to create something bigger than themselves. Not only is “Rogue One” exciting and action packed, it is inspiring.

The movie has a good mixture of classic Star Wars characters that fans will be excited to see, including Princess Leia, Darth Vader, and RTD2, along with new faces that move the story line forward. The Star Wars series has captivated the world with their varying themes of trust, loyalty, bravery, and good vs evil.

This addition to the series is no different and shares the themes that make Star Wars so relatable without trying to be relatable, a difficult task to complete. Star Wars fans can be a difficult bunch to please with all of their years of loving the series, but Rogue One has received outstanding reviews overall from multiple credible sources, and earned our stamp of approval.

Star Wars: Rogue One is rated PG-13.
