In 2015, Star Wars returned to the big screen with the blockbuster success of The Force Awakens. The legacy and power of a galaxy at war is sustained in an all new adventure: Rogue One – A Star Wars Story.
The tale of a Rebellion on the edge of annihilation is told through the eyes of a young and fierce heroine, Jyn Erso. Through a series of tests, challenges, and revelations she becomes a crucial part of the Rebel Alliance and their fight against the evil Galactic Empire.
Jyn becomes part of a unique band of rebels, spiritual seekers, imperial detectors, and a droid that must work together for the benefit of the Rebellion. Their team of misfits is tasked with obtaining the blueprints to the Empire’s secret weapon of destruction, the Death Star.
I love that this story proves that ordinary people can band together for a greater purpose and accomplish amazing things – an inspiring lesson for kids and adults!
This imaginative story is filled exceptional acting, a wonderfully talented cast, and beautiful film work that make Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on Blu-Ray/DVD Combo an essential treasure for any Star Wars fan.
Rogue One is directed by Gareth Edwards and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, with Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker.
