This movie is and forever will be my favourite Star Wars.

I know everyone has their own opinion but I personally thought the movie was GREAT!!! I love the original movies, but I always wondered about Han Solo’s background, plus he was one of my favourite characters so I was very thrilled and excited when they came out with this movie, I’ve seen it up to 8 to 10 times since it came out and still absolutely love it, the acting and casting was on point, the actor for Han both acted and looked like Harrison Ford which made me happy, sure Q’ra was wearing a slightly inappropriate dress at one point, but overall, the movie was AMAZING and totally worth watching.
