I'm not going to lie to you all. I was not really as excited as my kids about seeing the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie. It's not that I don't love the films, I just wasn't in an "action movie" mood the night we were scheduled to review it. Reminding me that time with our kids is precious, however, hubby had me sit with him and the kids to watch the film before its release.

I'm so glad I did.

This movie picks up where the series left off TWO movies ago. Yes, the Rogue One movie is part of the series, in a way, but I missed that one when the kids saw it in the theater, and I was concerned it would make this movie not as captivating. But it was awesome. The Kylo Ren storyline and the way the characters had to make some very hard decisions was almost too suspenseful at times, giving it a great payoff at the end.

And for those who were bummed by the turn of events int he final scenes? I wasn't bothered. I thought it was brilliant. I won't spoil it for you, but I can understand why the universe was split on that one.

With amazing character development, the crazy good music we've come to expect from the franchise, so many touching moments, lessons to learn, and fantastic action sequences, this may be my favorite Star Wars movie. My favorite.

Here's a quick trailer showing one of the most poignant scenes from the film.

And for some fun, here are some Easter Egg holder activities featuring the most adorable creatures since the Ewoks! Don't you just love the Porgs?
