Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.

If you didnt catch it in the cinemas then I highly recommend you catch it at home.  I really loved the movie, thought it played really well with the history we’ve learned over the years in Star Wars episodes 4,5,6 and now in episodes 7,8.

Have you been watching Star Wars Lego Freemaker Adventures?

“LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures,” the animated television series on Disney XD, is set between Stars Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and stars three siblings who scour the galaxy for useful debris that they use to build new vehicles of their own design. Rowan Freemaker is a spunky Force-sensitive 12-and-a-half-year-old with a thirst for adventure; his quick-witted older sister, Kordi, manages the family business and is the glue that holds the family together; ace pilot and charming rogue, Zander, is the oldest brother and the family’s self-proclaimed starship connoisseur; and R0-GR is their refurbished battle droid from the Clone Wars. When Rowan has visions of an ancient and powerful Jedi starship called The Arrowhead, he and his family set out on an epic quest to rebuild it so they can turn the tide of battle for the Rebellion. Together, they explore new worlds, meet new characters and Star Wars icons, and have unforgettable adventures.

In season two of “LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures,” the three Freemaker siblings—Rowan, Kordi and Zander—have found a new home with the Rebel fleet. But working with the Rebels in their fight to bring down the Empire brings them face to face with brutal Imperial forces, desperate Hutts, conniving Sith Lords and the Emperor’s latest plaything, M-OC.

Rogue One a Star Wars Story is the best stars wars movie yet!

Rogue One a Star Wars Story is the best stars wars movie yet!

Now if you loved Star Wars growing up this will be the film that you’ve waited for… if you are a purist and said 1,2,3 werent for me… then this is it… its right on tone with the original 4,5,6.  Without giving too many spoilers (I’ll try to keep this spoiler free).  This story is the backstory to how the Rebels come to be, how they come to learn about the death star, and get the plans to the death star.

Lucasfilm’s highly anticipated, first-ever standalone Star Wars adventure, ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY is now playing in theatres everywhere!

In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

I loved this movie… I really think anyone can see it, you dont have to be a Star Wars fan to know really where this story starts (sure its great to have the backstory but really it does standalone).

The force is strong in terms of the popcorn eating in my house #PopWars

The force is strong in terms of the popcorn eating in my house #PopWars

PS_SW_ExtraChessyMy son loves cheese… my son loves popcorn… so if you put them together like Pop Secret did, then needless to say I never even got a crumb to eat.

Like anyone born in the 1980s we grew up loving star wars and of course what we loved when we were children, some how becomes what our children love.  Marc loves the concepts of star wars and so seeing one of his favorite characters on a bag of popcorn that happens to be his favorite flavor – like wow.

Marc had a friend over and their were playing with some star wars figures watching episodes of clone wars on netflix and were just munching away on their pop secret.  This was a great snack for my wife cause it took no time, simply pop open the bag and pour some out into little cups for the kids.  Harper my daughter who is a little popcorn monster got into the action as well.

Once the kids got a hold of the Pop Secret’s new bag that featured Chewie from the Star Wars saga they then noticed the fun trivia to test each others knowledge about star wars.

Since 1984, Pop Secret has been offering popcorn fans a quality product that makes watching movies at home just as fun as going to the theater!  Make sure you have some on-hand for impromptu movie nights at home, picnics in the park, beach trips or sports practice. The Pop Secret pre-popped popcorn line is launching this year with a few delicious flavors, White Cheddar, Salted, Homestyle, Kettle Corn and the new Extra Cheesy.

 

Disclosure: I have partnered with Life of Dad and Pop Secret and was compensated for my participation in this promotion.

The Force Will Be With You Everywhere With “Star Wars: The Digital Movie Collection”

As anticipation builds for the December release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first new film in the Star Wars Saga in a decade, The Walt Disney Studios, Lucasfilm Ltd., and 20th Century Fox today announced the upcoming release of The Star Wars Digital Movie Collection. For the first time ever, all six epic films in the Saga, from The Phantom Menace to Return of the Jedi, will be available on Digital HD throughout the galaxy ­ or at least here on Earth ­ globally beginning Friday, April 10.

“Since the debut of the first film nearly 40 years ago, Star Wars has become a worldwide phenomenon with legions of fans from every generation,” said Alan Bergman, President, The Walt Disney Studios. It’s only fitting that audiences enjoy this legendary Saga and its many fascinating behind-the-scenes stories on a wide variety of platforms, and we’re very excited to finally bring all six films to Digital HD for the first time.

“We’re thrilled that fans will be able to enjoy the Star Wars Saga on their digital devices wherever they go,” commented Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. “These films broke new ground in technology, design, sound, and visual effects, and we’ve created some very special bonus material which delves into the Saga’s rich history, including new and never-before-released conversations between legendary Star Wars artists ­ the masters who helped
George bring his iconic universe to life.”

With Star Wars: Episodes I-VI available for purchase as a complete digital movie collection and individually, viewers will have the Rebel forces at their beck and call across their favorite devices anywhere ­ sunbathing at the beach, relaxing in their living room with friends, or waiting to board a flight to Endor (or elsewhere).

Enhancing the movie collection are a host of never-before-seen special features including Star Wars: Discoveries from Inside and insightful Conversations between key contributors from across this celebrated film franchise, plus a curated collection of classic Star Wars extras from each film. These are the droids you’re looking for.
