The best Star Wars film since the first one?
The last time I loved a Star Wars movie as much as I loved #RogueOne, it was 1977.

It feels like Star Wars
#RogueOne is FANTASTIC. Incredible action, both planetary and interstellar, and looks GORGEOUS. Most importantly, it feels like Star Wars.

…but it’s also gritty
People worried about #RogueOne not being a gritty war film need not worry. It's intense, relentless. You can practically taste the grit.
