Things Kids Say Thursday: Rogue One

We love Star Wars in my family. We watch the movies over and over, have light saber battles, talk about it at length. We get especially irritated when other people — like my dad — confuse Star Wars and Star Trek and call us “trekkies.” Even Baby Girl loves Star Wars (she’s seen bits and pieces) — she walks around humming Darth Vader’s music, calls for her light saber, and tells us she needs BB-8 because she’s Rey.

We went to see the new one last week, Rogue One. (And Sam and I saw it again last night for our date night.) We all thought it was amazing and did a great job of showing the events that led to episode four. All three of us walked out of the theater wiping tears away. I won’t go into specifics because spoilers, but the tears were in part due to just how damn good it was.

While talking about the movie on the way home, Little Man had a question.

“That was one of the best movies ever! It had such a great story. Do you think Shakespeare wrote Rogue One?”

(While looking for an image to include, I stumbled across William Shakespeare’s Star Wars Trilogy on Amazon. The trilogy is retold in Shakespeare’s writing style. I’m so getting that!)

    • Indeed he did. We talked a lot about Shakespearean tragedies, so I can see why he’d think that.

      I saw a massive RC Millennium Falcon in Walmart the other day. It was the size of a round trash can lid. Didn’t see the price, but I imagine it was both our kids’ Christmas budgets combined!

  1. I don’t know what the critics are saying, but I sure am getting mixed messages regarding Rogue One. About half of my friends loved it and the other half loathed it. I haven’t seen it yet, but am looking forward to judging it myself. THANK YOU for no spoilers.

    • From what I read earlier in the week, the critics are split, too. I can definitely see why some wouldn’t like it, but the way it tied everything in was just perfect for me. Let me know what you think! I wish they would’ve released this before Episode 7.
