My Opinion:
This book took me some time to go through, mostly because I was devouring every tiny detail in it. And there was a ton of detail to cover.
It is an epic look at all the films, from the real beginning, not the 80's version I originally knew of, with every part or detail you can think of.
Awesome shots from the movies accompany interesting facts that will have you turning each page only after you have read each description.
I actually learned some new things, and I was an avid fan, so that was a huge bonus in my reading adventure.
I have to say, I don't know if young kids age 7 would really "get" the information... there would be a lot of, "wow, cool" moments, but actually absorbing of the information, I doubt it. I would say this is geared for pubescent teens, probably mostly boys too, but they would get a kick out of the action and adventure in it, and still understand the information given.
A great book for adults too who are fans of the films. It's really cool to see it laid out from Anakin to Luke and their adventures they have, but in book. I think a lot of fans would appreciate the layout greatly.

 5/5

Recommend? Definitely, yes!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
