Kid’s Complex Reaction to Rogue One a Star Wars Story

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

Watching the Star Wars saga with my son has been one of the most amazing experiences for me. And not “because I loved Star Wars since I was a kid.” Seeing his reactions would have been parental treasure even if I was a lunatic and hated the movies. His passion and exhilaration are completely contagious.

Rogue One was the first that wasn’t a traditional Star Wars “Episode.” Though, it does take place in the same timeline and directly relates to the larger story; with its end leading right up to the beginning of the first ever released movie: A New Hope.

My son’s reaction highlights how Rogue One’s portrayals of good and evil are unique compared to the other movies: red lightsaber = bad / rebel = good. You’ll see his complex reaction to the powerful themes of sacrifice and hope. And also? DARTH VADER!!!

(But seriously, I mean ALL of the spoilers!)


Next up! The Last Jedi! Coming soon, and I mean for realsies. Early April, I promise!

See the Rest!
So far we’ve watched A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens. All of his reactions are pretty incredible.
