Three decades after the Empire's defeat, a new threat arises in the militant First Order. Stormtrooper defector Finn and spare parts scavenger Rey are caught up in the Resistance's search for the missing Luke Skywalker.
Three years into the Clone Wars, the Jedi rescue Palpatine from Count Dooku. As Obi-Wan pursues a new threat, Anakin acts as a double agent between the Jedi Council and Palpatine and is lured into a sinister plan to rule the galaxy.
After a daring mission to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt, the rebels dispatch to Endor to destroy a more powerful Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke struggles to help Vader back from the dark side without falling into the Emperor's trap.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a Wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle-station while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
After the rebels are overpowered by the Empire on their newly established base, Luke Skywalker begins Jedi training with Yoda. His friends accept shelter from a questionable ally as Darth Vader hunts them in a plan to capture Luke.
Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the Senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.
When Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, things go horribly wrong and it's up to Earth's mightiest heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plan.

All looks lost for the Rebellion against the Empire as they learn of the existence of a new super weapon, the Death Star. Once a possible weakness in its construction is uncovered, the Rebel Alliance must set out on a desperate mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. The future of the entire galaxy now rests upon its success. Written by
To confer the intended look of the ground battles, director Gareth Edwards and the design team simply took old pictures taken during World War II and Vietnam, replaced army helmets with Rebel head covers, and added X-Wings into the shots. They also drew storyboards inspired by photos from Middle-Eastern conflict zones. Representatives of the studio were immediately taken by the imagery, and encouraged him to proceed with the idea.

Whoever didn't love episode 7 for any reason. This is your movie.
What a ride. This review will be filled with hyperbole, but I won't
I saw and enjoyed Star Wars: Episode 7 a lot. It wasn't perfect, but it
was good, and got me back into Star Wars mode again. Rogue One,
however, surprised me in probably being the best Star Wars movie
produced in this millennia, and I'm being serious.
First of all, manage your expectations. Rogue One isn't a new type of
cinema experience, or unique. It's also a prequel, so the story has
somewhere specific it has to end up.
With that in mind, Gareth Edward's movie is pretty close to an instant
classic, in my opinion. It doesn't rush along, but give us ample time
to get some sense of characters and locations. It doesn't dwell on
exposition, other through character, and actual plot.
This is the story about how the rebel alliance acquired the plans for
the death star, and it manages to give the plot and characters in A New
Hope more meaning, and gravitas.
It's hard to tell why it's so good without spoiling a story that was
such a delight to experience unspoiled, so I'll sum it up really,
The only negative things I have to say about Rogue One, is that two CGI
characters were 99% perfect instead of 100%. That's actually the reason
I withhold my last star out of 10. It'll make sense after you've seen
the movie. Other than that, this is everything I hoped for, and then
