I had a crazy day. If I told you everything I did, you wouldn’t believe me. As you can see, content has been a bit light this week. That’s because I am prepping for something HUGE this weekend that just fell on my lap very last minute. A gig is a gig is a gig and I can’t say no even if the timing is a tad inconvenient. I’m going to have a TON of FUN, but a lot of PREP had to happen for it to take place. That’s all I can say right now. Let’s leave it there.
And then I’m leaving for Vegas on Monday! I mean – we can’t forget about that! UGH
Anyway, I just sat down and got to sorting through my emails. I came across the new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and I immediately turned it on because I’ve been so curious to see it.
Have you seen the poster yet? Amazing!! Look at that lead! Look at her – front and center. With all the little men below. I don’t mean to sound that way but…. YEAHHHHH. That’s how I’m sounding. As someone who is HARDCORE into SCI-FI and Superheroes and all that jazz, it’s NICE to see a leading lady NOT HALF NAKED ON A POSTER. You and I both know that’s the only way they get this much airtime. The heroine who is hot will earn 75% of a poster… but where are the leading ladies who are smart and intelligent and brave and … clothed? Where are the women I can show my children?
When I saw this poster, I got excited all over again – just like I did the last time I sat down to watch Star Wars.
They are going to take me there again. They are going to show the children of this generation that anyone can be a hero. They are going to show us that we all can dream to save the world. That I didn’t have to buy the boy costume to be strong. I mean… that I don’t have to buy my daughter the boy costume to be strong – she has her own heroes to look up to.
Official Synopsis: From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, an all-new epic adventure.
