The imagery in Rogue One is AH-MAH-ZING!  Rogue One tells the story of a group of unlikely heroes who, in a time of conflict, band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star. I wanted to be on location with the rebels is was so beautiful.

My favorite character of Rogue One, was K-2SO or Kaytoo.  I loved his cantankerous attitude and wit. Kaytoo displays loyalty to #TeamRebel member Cassian Andor, and his repurposed life with the rebellion. He is spot on with zingers and quite litearlly, hilarious.

I was so sad at the end of Rogue one! Without giving away anything, that is all I can say. The funny thing about live twitting during a movie is that I kept missing so much and had to keep rewinding sections. I would look down at my laptop to type something and my son would say "watch this part" "watch this part". He had already seen Rogue One, but was excited to rewatch it with me. He made sure I didn't miss any key points.
