I can understand why the audiences everywhere are giving it such positive feedback.
it's a good look at the star wars universe from an alternate perspective, and the movie itself show's just why the empire is so evil and must be opposed.
But the movie also explores the less than savory elements that work for the rebel alliance, as well as extremist who act outside of the alliance's protocols.
Not going to spoil anything, but the ending is bittersweet, and show cases why the rebel are so heroic in the face of the overwhelming and remorseless malignance of the empire.
I can safely say that after this, we're all looking forward to more "A star wars story" movies.
This has Been M.C, siging off, and remember-
"Rebellions are built on hope."
