Remember, or should I say could you ever forget the original "Star Wars" which set a new trend in #Entertainment? Well, this movie is set just before those original events. Entertainment Weekly quotes Director Gareth Edwards as saying the movie will portray "the reality of war. Good guys are bad. Bad guys are good. It's complicated, layered; a very rich scenario in which to set a movie." Overall, the reviews are very happy that the #New movie has a lot of nostalgic stuff that equates to the original "Star Wars."

Vader? It just would not be right without Darth

There were some rumours and speculation that the movie would not include Darth Vader, but to the relief of everybody, in the second teaser trailer, Darth is seen in a reflection of a computer screen and the classic breathing sound effects came through.This news reported by the Daily News in July set a lot of concerns to rest.

So is the hype right- is this a hot movie to see these holidays?

Jacob Siegal wrote in a BGR review that this movie looks to be yet another "Star Wars" hit. Although fans were initially a little bit "wary" as we all are when contemplating a return to something old and use-by dated, media invited to a 30-minute segment of the final cut last weekend raved about it. Jacob Hall of Slash Film wrote that the K-2SO droid made the movie for him, with special reference to the temperamental attitude "without a single social grace.” Sounds like R2D2 revisited!
