The story is OK. It was exciting and I could find out homages for episode Ⅳ-Ⅵ. However, also I thought it was just a spin-off. I thought that the most exciting element of Star Wars series is sci-fi atmosphere. Especially I really like to see characters fighting by Light saver. Obviously, it has a scene of a spaceship, also galaxy as well. But it is kind of general contents of the sci-fi film. I expected that I could see some of the specific elements of Star Wars, but it was just an additional scene for Star Wars' fan. I was really disappointed about that. Especially when I saw "fake" Princess Leia, that was like a comedy.
In terms of visual, it is a stereotype. Nothing is really interesting. Everything was normal.
