"During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet."
It was interesting going into this film, because we all knew the outcome of the movie as it ends immediately where A New Hope, the film that started it all, begins. Honestly, I didn't know what to expect. I always try to keep my expectations in check, because I want to enjoy movies so I try not to over anticipate. Regardless of expectation, this film will not let you down.
