Hey cupcakes! I know I am totally late on seeing/reviewing this movie, but my boyfriend and I finally decided to watch the film when we found it on Netflix the other night. I was pretty skeptical of the film (hence why I never saw it in theaters), but I was actually surprised how well the plot fit in with the original Star Wars films. It was such a neat idea to show the viewers how the Death Star plans were given to Princess Leia, so I was uber happy they didn't fail at the plot line.
The movie itself was a little boring at times, but I thought the new characters were very well developed and pretty relatable (plus, there were some good jokes!). Some beloved old characters came back, and I loved the very subtle romance happening between the two main characters as well! Even though the ending was sad (SPOILER ALERT: literally the whole cast dies), I thought this was smart and definitely needed to match the original movies. It was the perfect ending in my opinion.
Overall, I thought this film was better than expected! If you never saw it, I would definitely recommend checking it out sometime! :)
