For me it filled in the gap . It was something that told a story that had been miss from the EU and the movies.
I was more than happy with the way "it" was made . Glad they redid it and as was said before in ANH "a lot of people died to get this out" .
With recent events and our princess leaving it felt like a homecoming. I just saw this R1 on Friday Jan 6.
The attention to detail was interesting . l loved director Krennic .
The scenes where great . I loved the different locations and planets we have not seen before.
I still wonder how that thing (DS) moved through hyperspace. I guess Starkiller base would do the same, opps different topic.
I LOVED IT. In whole the movie took me to a place in a galaxy far,far away again. That's what it was supposed to.
