Star Wars: Rogue One

It’s here!  It’s finally here!  Disney’s Star Wars: Rogue One Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD Combo Pack has arrived and it’s awesome!

‘Rogue One’ is my favorite Star Wars movie just after ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’
Unlike the previous twin trilogies, Rogue One does not feature iconic characters (albeit there are brief cameos) and takes place just before the events of ‘A New Hope.’

A ragtag group of misfits is sent to scout out the Death Star, find its weakness and return that information back to the rebels.  Sound familiar?

The film stars a ragtag bunch of rogues, among them a reprogrammed Imperial Droid, a traitor, two Jedi wannabes, a tough-as-nails pilot and a young girl whose father is the architect of the Death Star.

Together they unite to stop The Empire.  It’s a rough and tumble, gritty and realistic struggle where the thin line between the tactics of good and evil blur.

Filled with spectacular digital and physical effects, intriguing new characters, amazing ships and weapons, dastardly villains (both old and new) and a storyline that keeps you glued to your seat, Rogue One delivers on all accounts.

Included with the Combo Pack are a plethora of featurettes and much, much more.  It’s a killer of a combination that Star Wars fans will rave about.
