Star Wars is a tough name to live up to. This movie did the best that it could. It’s hard to jump into the middle and expect that everyone knows what’s going on. It was fun to see where Chewbacca came from and the history of the Han Solo character. The story was a bit of a stretch (but aren’t they all these days) but easy enough to follow.
For true Star Wars fans they might have been a little let down but as the casual fan I consider myself to be, it was an ok movie for me.
