    • why are you watching a star wars video about a rebels family then

  • Wow, so so cool. What a great story! Great people. I didnt cry at all.

  • This is not going to make the people who actually watch the movies any more interested. Get all those feelers going! Wont work. Make a quality film again!

    • @Dorian Grey No, this isn't an ad campaign. That's not the point of these Star Wars stories. You sir.. are the people that twist things into something it isn't. Our Star Wars Stories is about the people of the fandom and how much people have had their life changed in such a positive way from Star Wars.

    • @Niko Janatuinen I thought that was pretty plain. Getting people emotional and all happy feely watching good wholesome family time is not going to work as an ad campaign. What did you think I was saying? Are you one of those twisted people that tries to turn everything someone says into something that it isnt?

      Dorian GreyDorian Greyปีที่แล้ว
    • What are you trying to say?

    • Except they love TLJ. #NICETRYHATER

  • If Rogue One would have shown the Ghost Crew, then that family should have been playing them.

  • Nice Star Wars also helped me a lot to Learn english
