I saw Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Lucasfilm) for the second time recently. The first time was at the theater and the second time was via Disney Movies Anywhere and Roku. I’m a big Star Wars fan and I really enjoyed the sci-fi film. Unlike the other Star Wars movies I’ve seen, Rogue One is a standalone story. Remember the very first Star Wars film (A New Hope)? In the story, Luke destroys the Death Star thanks to plans stolen by the rebels. Rogue One is about the rebels who stole the plans that revealed the weakness in the Death Star. Note: I received a movie kit for reviewing the film on my blog. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.

As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.

There’s a new Lego Star Wars movie out on DVD. It’s called Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales. I received the DVD for review on my dad blog. We loved it. We’re big fans of Lego Star Wars and the new DVD did not disappoint. The stories take place after Return of the Jedi and before The Fore Awakens. As you can probably guess, the central characters are R2-D2 and C-3PO. They are two of our favorite Star Wars characters. The 110-minute DVD features the two droids in five 22-minute episodes. In addition to the fun episodes, the DVD also includes an exclusive trading card set. As I mentioned already, Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales is available now on DVD.
