The app itself is rated for 9+ years old. I just downloaded it. I will write more to this when I actually open it. This was the first thing I noticed.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (6 ):

For a promotional tool, Star Wars is pretty cool. Not only does it give you up-to-date news and the latest trailers and videos, but it also lets you make selfies with yourself as a Jedi, gives you GIFs for easy meme-ing, and offers a soundboard that has such sound effects as Chewbacca laughing, Darth Vader breathing, and a lightsaber powering up, as well as quotes from Han Solo ("I got a bad feeling about this"), Qui-Gon Jinn ("Don't touch anything"), and Princess Leia ("I'd just as soon kiss a Wookie"). There's even a simple lightsaber game and a "This day in Star Wars history" ticker, and it uses your phone's GPS not only to tell you the temperature but also what planet in the galaxy far, far away has similar weather. In other words, it's everything Star Wars fans would want in an app, whether the Force is strong in them or not.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
