Last Wednesday (6/20/18) and friend and I watched Solo: A Star Wars Story. Conversation and food followed, a great night all around.
Space. Western. Action.
This wasn’t a movie that I felt needed made, but leaving the theater I found that I was not only glad they did it but I wanted more – so mission accomplished.
In early June we watched Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones; this was the first time for the kids.
Cool armor and vehicles, so there’s that
It had probably been about five years since my wife and I had watched it and it was tough going, but we made it through.
I found myself explaining a lot for the group, from methods of romance (?) to geo-political procedures, etc. It doesn’t have to be simplistic, but it does have to make sense.
I’m glad it adds to the universe, but I’m also glad we can move on.
On November 18th of last year we finished watching Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with the kids.
They really enjoyed it and it was great to show them another chapter in the saga.
The girls got their first taste of the prequel trilogy this year when we finished The Phantom Menace on September 19th.
The Best Part
It was a big success, with everyone loving the film (even Jar-Jar!). Episodes II and III are on hold for now, but we’ll get there.
The kids played Star Wars: Battlefront for the first time on July 23rd of this year.
A small step into a larger world
As we experience more and more Star Wars together this was a fun way to see them enjoy the universe even more; and create some pretty big explosions 😀
Finished Star Wars Catalyst by James Luceno on April 19th of this year.
As a lead up to Rogue One I appreciated learning more about where the characters were before the events of the movie went down.
Bonus Fact: This was the first book I read on my Kindle product and I enjoyed the experience.
Currer had yet to see it, so we watched Rogue One on April 6th of this year.
Finished Star Wars Rebels (Season 2) on March 28, 2017.
Sometime in December of 2016 I saw Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
We finished watching Star Wars The Force Awakens as a family over the course of three nights on September 9, 2016.
It’s been so much fun to enjoy the saga with the kids!
