Not just fans. Not just parents. Not just teachers. Not just girls. There's a rebel in all of us. And all of us share one thing: Star Wars.
To celebrate the launch of Rogue One products and exclusives hitting Target on September 30, the second-largest discount retailer in the United States has put out a powerful new Star Wars-centric television spot. It features Dan Zehr, a teacher who uses Star Wars to teach Shakespeare; Jennifer Landa Busch, who had a Star Wars-themed wedding; Amiyrah Martin, who uses the Yoda quote "Do. Or do not. There is no try." as her parenting motto; and Charley Burns, a nine-year-old girl who likes "all the hardcore girls like Princess Leia."

Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur and Simon Emanuel are producing, with John Knoll and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers.
