Announcer: IS THIS

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

Efrem: AND THANK YOU

FOR JOINING US.

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS CALLED

OFF THE NUCLEAR SUMMIT

WITH NORT NORTH KOREA SCHEDULED

FOR NEXT MONTH, CITING ITS

TREMENDOUS ANGER AND OPEN

HOSTILITY TOWARDS THE

UNITED STATES.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS MORE

ON THIS STORY.

Jennifer: A BOLD MOVE

BY PRESIDENT TRUMP,A

LETTER TO KIM JONG-UN

CANCELLING THE LEADERS'

PLANNED NUCLEAR SUMMITS.

HE SURPRISED THE WORLD,

BUT THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION SAW IT

COMING FOR DAYS.

President Trump:

NORTH KOREA HAS THE

OPPORTUNITY TO END DECADES

OF DEPRESSION BY FOLLOWING

THE PATH OF

DENUCLEARIZATION AND

JOINING THE COMMUNITY OF

NATIONS.

Jennifer: AFTER

SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE

POMPEO'S MEETING WITH KIM

THAT RESULTING IN THE

RELEASE OF THREE AMERICAN

PRISONERS, THE NORTH

KOREANS FAILED TO KEEP

THEIR PROMISES.

IT IS NOT ABOUT THE

DEAL; IT IS ABOUT THE

OUTCOME.

IT IS ABOUT ACHIEVING THIS

PERMANENT PHYSICAL CHANGE

AND TRANSFORMATION THAT

WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY

TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

Jennifer: AFTER

TRUMP'S ANNOUNCEMENT,

NORTH KOREA SEEMED TO

CHANGED ITS TUNE, SAYING

THAT THE KIM REGIME IS

OPEN-MINDED IN GIVING TIME

AND OPPORTUNITY TO THE

U.S.

BUT FOR NOW, THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS

CONTINUING ITS CAMPAIGN,

CRIPPLING ECONOMIC

SANCTIONS TOWARDS A NATION NATION

ALREADY FACING DISPAIR.

BUT THEY FEAR THE NORTH

WILL RETURN TO TESTING

MISSILES.

IF THE NORTH KOREA

TESTS MISSILES IN THE NEXT

FEW DAYS AND THERE IS A

MALFUNCTION AND IT LANDS

IN JAPAN, WE COULD BE AT

WAR.

Jennifer: TIME, HE

SAYS, ISN'T ON KIM'S SIDE,

AS HIS PEOPLE ARE MORE

EXPOSED FROM INFLUENCES TO

THE WORLD OUTSIDE NORTH

KOREA THAT IS CORRECT MAY

LEARN THERE IS A BETTER

WAY.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN YOU ACTUALLY GET IN

ON THESE SITUATIONS.

YOU START TO GIVE PEOPLE

HOPE SOMETHING CAN BE

DIFFERENT AND THEY START

TO PRESS FOR IT.

Jennifer: A SENIOR

WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL SAYS

THE BALL IS NOW IN NORTH

KOREA'S COURT.

President Trump: IF

AND WHEN KIM JONG-UN

CHOOSES TO ENGAGE IN

CONSTRUCTIVE ACTIONS, I AM

WAITING.

Jennifer: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS, THE

WHITE HOUSE.

SPHRAIR Efrem: PRESIDENT

TRUMP SAYS HE WILL BLOCK

ANY IMMIGRATION BILL THAT

DOESN'T INCLUDE WHAT HE

CALLS A, QUOTE, "REAL

BORDER WALL."

A GROUP OF HOUSE

REPUBLICANS IS TRYING TO

PUSH THROUGH A MEASURE TO

PROTECT CHILDREN OF

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

BUT THE PRESIDENT TOLD FOX

NEWS HE WON'T SIGN ANY

BILL WITHOUT VERY STRONG

BORDER SECURITY.

MITCHELL McCONNELL SAYS

HE'LL REFUSE TO BRING UP

ANY BILL WITHOUT THE

PRESIDENT'S SUPPORT.

> A WHITE HOUSE ATTORNEY

ATTENDED A MEETING

THURSDAY ON THE F.B.I.

RUSSIA PROBE.

REPUBLICANS SAY THE F.B.I.

AND THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

HAVE REFUSED TO TURN OVER

DOCUMENTS TO CONGRESS THAT

THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO SEE,

AND THEY WANT TO KNOW WHAT

ROLE THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE

MAY HAVE HAD IN REPORTED

F.B.I. SPYING ON THE TRUMP

CAMPAIGN IN 2016.

> AND HARVEY WEINSTEIN

IS EXPECTED TO SURRENDER

TO POLICE TODAY TO FACE

SEX ABUSE CHARGES.

THEY RELATE TO A FORMER

ACTRESS, WHO ACCUSES HIM

OF SEXUAL ASSAULT IN 2004.

MORE THAN 90 CLAIM

ASSAULT.

WEINSTEIN SAYS ALL OF THE

ENCOUNTERS WERE

CONSENTUAL.

> AN ARMED CITIZEN SHOT

AND KILLED A MASS SHOOTER

AT AN OKLAHOMA RESTAURANT

ON THURSDAY.

THE UNIDENTIFIED SHOOTER

ENTERED LOUIE'S ON THE

LAKE AND FIRED HIS GUN

BEFORE BEING SHOT DEAD BY

A HANDGUN-CARRYING

CIVILIAN IN THE PARKING

LOT.

THE INCIDENT FOLLOWS A

SHOOTING LAST MONTH AT A

TENNESSEE WAFFLE HOUSE

WHERE A CITIZEN CONFRONTED

AND DISARMED THE GUNMAN.

> 15 PEOPLE WERE INJURED

BY A BOMB IN CANADA.

THE I IMPROVISED EXPLOSIVE

DEVICE WERE SET OFF INSIDE

AN INDIAN RESTAURANT

INSIDE A TORONTO SUBURBAN

RESTAURANT.

TWO MEN WALKED INTO THE

RESTAURANT, DROPPING

I.E.D.s.

POLICE SAY THERE IS NO

EVIDENCE YET OF A HATE

CRIME OR AN ACT OF

TERRORISM.

> IRELAND WILL HOLD A

NATIONAL VOTE TO DECIDE

WHETHER TO UPHOLD OR

REPEAL AN AMENDMENT.

A YES VOTE WOULD REPEAL

THE AMENDMENT THAT

PROTECTS A BABY UP TO

EIGHT WEEKS.

OFFICIAL RESULTS ARE

EXPECTED SOME TIME ON

SATURDAY, BUT EXIT POLLING

MAY SHOW THE RESULTS

TODAY.

> THE U.S. AMBASSADOR AT

LARGE FOR INTERNATIONAL

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM TELLS

CBN NEWS THAT PASTOR

ANDREW BRUNSON WILL BE

RELEASED FROM A TURKISH

PRISON.

MORE THAN A YEAR AND A

HALF AGO, TURKISH

OFFICIALS JAILED HIM ON

WHAT MANY BELIEVE ARE

FALSE CHARGES, INCLUDING

TERRORISM AND E ESPIONAGE.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DOING

ALL HE CAN DO FREE THE

PASTOR FROM ONE OF THE

WORST PRISONERS IN THE

WORLD.

THE ADMINISTRATION

CONTINUES TO PUSH

AGGRESSIVELY.

THERE IS A LOT OF

DISCUSSION OF WHAT THE

U.S. CAN AND SHOULD DO TO

PRESS FOR HIS RELEASE.

THE PRESIDENT HAS RAISED

IT, THE VICE PRESIDENT HAS

RAISED IT, THE SECRETARY

OF STATE HAS RAISED IT.

BUT TURKEY IS JUST TAKING

A DIFFERENT ATTITUDE

TOWARDS THE UNITED STATES

NOW, MUCH MORE

CONFRONTATIONAL WITH US.

AND, YOU KNOW, I THINK WE

HAVE TO RESPOND

AGGRESSIVELY.

Efrem:

BROWNBASKETBALBROWNBASKETBALLBROWNBASKETBA LL BACK

SAYS HE BELIEVES BRUNSON

WILL COME HOME ONE DAY.

> AS PAUL STRAND

REPORTS, PEOPLE WERE

WORKING TO SHAPE OUR

NATION.

Reporter: SOME

PASTORS ARE SO HEAVILY

MINDED, THEY THINK THEIR

AND THEIR CONGREGATION

SHOULD HAVE NOTHING TO DO

WITH THE WORLD.

A GROUP OF PASTORS

ENCOURAGED TO GET

POLITICALLY ACTIVE AT

"WATCHMAN ON THE WALL

2018" TOOK PRAYER RIGHT TO

THE U.S. CAPITAL, CIRCLING

IT AND PRAYING ALL THE

WAY.

THEY WERE PRAYING THAT GOD

WOULD SHAPE THE LAWMAKERS

THE GOVERNMENT, THE

CULTURE AND THE NATION.

ONE OF THEM IS DAVID

BARTON OF WALL BUILDERS.

HE SAYS PASTORS WERE

DEEPLY INVOLVED IN

AFFECTING WORLD ISSUES

THROUGHOUT HISTORY.

THIS ABOUT PASTORS NOT

BEING INVOLVED IS THE PAST

40 OR 50 YEARS, NOT THE

PAST 300 YEARS.

THAT'S WHAT IS FUN TO SHOW

THESE GUYS BECAUSE THEN

THEY GET LIBERATED.

> BACK WHEN I WAS IN

SEMINARY, WE NEVER TALKED

ABOUT HOW TO ENGAGE IN THE

CULTURE LIKE THIS.

PART OF IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN

A FEAR FOR GETTING IN

TROUBLE SOMEHOW WITH

SAYING THINGS WE SHOULDN'T

SAY, GETTING INVOLVED WITH

ACTIVITIES THAT WE SHOULD

NOT.

BUT, I'LL TELL YOU, IT

REALLY IS A NEW DAY.

Reporter: BARTON TOOK

CBN NEWS BACK TO 1775.

THE BRITISH ACTUALLY

BLAMED THE PASTORS FOR THE

AMERICAN WAR FOR

INDEPENDENCE.

THEY NAMED THEM THE

BLACK-ROBE REGIMEN.

THEY ACCUSED THEM OF BEING

THE CAUSE OF EVERYTHING,

AND THEY WERE REALLY

RIGHT.

EVERY RIGHT SET FORTH IN

THE DECLARATION OF

INDEPENDENCE HAD BEEN

PREACHED FROM THE AMERICAN

PULPIT BY 1763.

Reporter: THE

MID-TERMS IN 2018 COULD BE

JUST AS CRUCIAL AS THE

VOTE IN 20 16.

AND THEY AND THEIR

CONGREGATIONS NEED TO BE

INVOLVED IN VOTING.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: COMING UP, WE

HEAR FROM MEMBERS OF THE

PRESIDENT'S ADVISORY BOARD

TO SEE HOW HE IS WORKING

TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR

Efrem: FOLLOWING THE

OPENING OF THE U.S.

EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM,

MEMBERS OF PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S EVANGELICAL

ADVISORY BOARD DISCUSSED

THE IMPORTANCE OF A NEW

EXECUTIVE ORDER.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS,

IT IS ONE MORE SIGN OF THE

GROWTH OF FAITH-BASED

INITIATIVES FROM THE WHITE

HOUSE.

President Trump: I

WILL SOON BE SIGNING AN

EXECUTIVE ORDER TO CREATE

A FAITH INITIATIVE AT THE

WHITE HOUSE.

THE FAITH INITIATIVE WILL

HELP DESIGN NEW POLICIES

THAT RECOGNIZE THE VITAL

ROLE OF FAITH IN OUR

FAMILIES, OUR COMMUNITIES,

AND OUR GREAT COUNTRY.

Chris: THE NEW

EXECUTIVE ORDER

ESTABLISHED THE WHITE

HOUSE FAITH AND

OPPORTUNITY INITIATIVE,

AND MEMBERS OF PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S EVANGELICAL

ADVISORY BOARD TOLD CBN

NEWS IT COULD

REVOLUTIONIZE THE

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN

FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS

THROUGHOUT THE FEDERAL

BUREAUCRACY.

ALL DEPARTMENTS THAT

HAVE FAITH OFFICES, AND

ALL FEDERAL OFFICES, WILL

HAVE A LIASON APPOINTED SO

THAT THE DEPARTMENTS,

ALONG WITH THE WHITE

HOUSE, THE PRESIDENT'S

AGENDA, CAN WORK TOGETHER

WITH SEVERAL INITIATIVES.

THERE ARE INITIATIVES, OF

COURSE, RELIGIOUS FREEDOM,

REDUCING CRIME, PRISON

REFORM, POVERTY, MARRIAGE

AND FAMILY, HUMAN SEX

TRAFFICKING, AND SEVERAL

OTHERS THAT ARE VITALLY

IMPORTANT AND ON THE HEART

OF OUR PRESIDENT.

HIS EXECUTIVE ORDER IS

BRINGING IT BACK TO THE

WHITE HOUSE, WHERE BARACK

OBAMA MOVED IT OVER TO THE

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND

HUMAN SERVICES.

IF YOU'RE NOT IN THE WHITE

HOUSE, FRANKLY, YOU'RE NOT

WHERE THE ACTION IS.

Chris: REID COMPLAINS

HOW THE MOVE COULD

POTENTIALLY MAKE A

DIFFERENCE FOR PEOPLE WHO

NEED HELP.

WHAT WE'RE REALING

GOINREALLY GOINGTO BE DOING IS RALLYING

THE ARMIES OF FAITH AND

PASSION, THAT ARE CARING

FOR THE POOR, THE

MARGINALIZED, THOSE IN

PRISON.

AND I COMMEND THE

PRESIDENT FOR TAPPING INTO

THAT RESOURCE.

90% OF THE HOMELESS

SHELTERS IN AMERICA ARE

EITHER OPERATED BY A

CHURCH OR A MINISTRY OR A

FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATION.

WHENEVER THERE IS A

NATURAL DISASTER, WHETHER

IT IS "OPERATION BLESSING"

OR THE SALVATION ARMY OR

CATHOLIC CHARITIES,

THEY'RE ALL RIGHT THERE ON

THE FRONT LINES.

AFTER A HURRICANE, AFTER

AN EARTHQUAKE, AFTER

WILDFIRES -- WHATEVER IT

IS.

JUST OFFERING LOVE AND

COMPASSION TO PEOPLE WHO

NEED IT.

Chris: MEMBERS OF THE

EVANGELICAL ADVISORY BOARD

MET WITH U.S. AMBASSADOR

DAVID FRIEDMAN.

EVANGELICALS AND THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION HAVE FORGED

A COMMON BOND.

AS YOU KNOW, THE

EVANGELICAL COMMUNITY WAS

VERY, VERY KEY ON THE

ELECTION OF PRESIDENT

TRUMP, AND ALSO VERY KEY

IN TERMS OF OUR PRAYER AND

OUR BEING ABLE TO SPEAK TO

THE PRESIDENT, EVEN

REGARDING THE MOVEMENT OF

THE EMBASSY.

WE WENT TO THE OVAL OFFICE

AFTER HIS DECISION TO

THANK THE PRESIDENT FOR

HIS BOLD ACTION.

AND AS I MENTIONED IN THE

MEETING, MANY CAME AGAINST

THE PRESIDENT, BUT HE

STILL DID THE RIGHT THING,

AND WE ARE SO HONORED TO

HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO

PROMISES SOMETHING AND

DOES WHAT HE PROMISES.

HE IS THE MOST -- AS

MANY PEOPLE HAVE SAID --

FAITH-FRIENDLY PRESIDENT

THAT THEY HAVE KNOWN IN

THEIR LIFETIME.

WE HAD OVER 1800 FAITH

LEADERS COME THROUGH THE

WHITE HOUSE LAST YEAR

ALONE.

I BELIEVE THIS YEAR WE

WILL DOUBLE OR TRIPLE

THAT.

SO HE CONTINUES TO REACH

OUT, FIRST AND FOREMOST IN

PRAYER.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: STILL

AHEAD...THE ICONIC HYMN,

"AMAZING GRACEIERAS WHICH GRACE," WHICH HA S

BEEN RECORDED OVER 100

TIMES.

NOW WE GO INTO A NEW

Efrem: IT'S BEEN

RECORDED HUNDREDS OF TIMES

BY CHRISTIAN ARTISTS AND

POP STARS ALIKE, AND NO

MATTER WHO YOU ARE, YOU'VE

PROBABLY HEARD THE HYMN

"AMAZING GRACE."

BUT WHO IS BEHIND THE

CLASSIC?

OUR AMBER STRONG TAKES US

TO AN EXHIBIT DEDICATED TO

THAT MAN.

* AMAZINGS GRACE

Reporter: NO MATTER

THE RENDITION OR ARTIST,

THAT TUNE AND THOSE LYRICS

ARE EASILY RECOGNIZABLE.

"AAMAZING GRACE, HOW SWEET

THE SOUND THAT SAVED A

RETCH LIKE ME."

AND WHILE YOU MAY KNOW THE

SONG, DO YOU REALLY KNOW

THE MAN BEHIND THE LYRICS?

JOHN NEWTON IS A PRETTY

AMAZING STORY.

Reporter: ILENA SAYS

BEHIND THE HOPEFUL TUNE

LIES A DARK STORY.

HE LIVED A PRETTY CRAZY

LIFE.

HE WAS PRETTY REBELLIOUS.

Reporter: THAT WAS

UNTIL THE LONG-TIME SAILOR

EXPERIENCED A ROUGH NIGHT

AT SEA.

IT WAS IN THOSE MOMENTS

THAT HE ACTUALLY STARTED

TO UNDERSTAND HOW PRECIOUS

LIFE IS, AND THE DECISIONS

HE HAD MADE WERE REALLY

NOT A GOOD WAY TO LIVE HIS

LIFE.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH HE

GAVE HIS LIFE TO CHRIST,

NEWTON BECAME A SLAVE SHIP

CAPTAIN.

IT WAS DURING THOSE

TIMES, THOUGH, HE ACTUALLY

STARTED TO THINK

DIFFERENTLY ABOUT

HUMANITY.

Reporter: AFTER A

HEALTH CRISIS, HE LEFT THE

SHIP BUT NOT HIS

INVOLVEMENT WITH SLAVERY.

IT IS SOMETHING HE WOULD

WRESTLE WITH FOR MANY

YEARS.

HE EVENTUALLY JOINED THE

CHURCH OF ENGLAND AND

WRITE A FEW HYMNS.

HE WROTE A FEW AND THEY

COLLECTED THEM IN THE ONLY

HYMN BOOK, AND THAT'S

WHERE WE SEE THE HYMN

"AMAZING GRACE" REPORTED

IN PRINT.

I THINK OF THE FIRST PART,

"AMAZING GRACE, HOW SWEET

THE SOUND THAT SAVED A

RETCH LIKE ME," IT IS

REFLECTED IN THE BOOK OF

ROMANS WHERE IT SAYS, THIS

RETCHED MAN LIKE I AM.

Reporter: THE WORDS

SPOKE LOUDLY TO HIS

FRIEND, WILLIAM WILBUR

WILBURFORTH.

I WISH I WOULD REMEMBER

MY 20,000 GHOSTS.

Reporter: AFTER

NEWTON'S ENCOURAGEMENT,

WILBURFORTH WERE

SUCCESSFULLY PUSH FOR THE

END OF THE SLAVE TRAIT IN

1807.

YOU MUST USE IT, NAMES,

SHIP RECORDS, PORTS,

PEOPLE -- EVERYTHING I

REMEMBER IS IN HERE.

I REMEMBER TWO THINGS VERY

CLEARLY: I'M A GREAT

SINNER, AND CHRIST IS A

GREAT SAVIOR.

Reporter: AND THEN

THE SONG TO GOD.

FROM THE CIVIL WAR TO THE

CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT, THE

SECRETARIES OF STATE, AND

EVEN A FORMER U.S.

PRESIDENT, ITS MESSAGE OF

HOPE IN THE FACE OF SORROW

REMAINS STEADFAST.

ARTISTS LIKE JUDY COLLINS

AND ARETHA FRANKLIN HAVE

ALL PUT THEIR VERSION ON

IT.

IT IS PRETTY NEAT TO

LOOK AT ALL OF THE

DIFFERENT ALBUM COLORS,

WHERE YOU HAVE GRAPHIC

DESIGNS THAT SPEAK TO EACH

OF THE JA GENRES AND EACH OF

THE ARTISTS.

Reporter: SHE SAYS

THE IDEA OF GRACE AND HOPE

GENERATES ACROSS GENRES

AND TIME.

AMBER STRONG AT THE MUSEUM

OF THE BIBLE.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK.

WE'RE FOLLOWING SEVERAL

ENTERTAINMENT HEADLINES

FOR YOU THIS HOUR.

WE BEGIN WITH THE SUMMER

BOX OFFICE.

THE SEASON BRINGS

BLOCKBUSTER FILMS WITH BIG

HOLLYWOOD STARS, AND NOW

YOU CAN ADD POPE FRANCIS

TO THE LIST.

HIS HOLINESS MAKES AN

APPEARANCE IN THE FAMILY

MOVIE "BEYOND THE SON," IT

IS BASED ON STORIES FROM

THE BIBLE.

AND IT FEATURES A GROUP OF

YOUNG CHILDREN WHO EMBARK

ON A JOURNEY TO DISCOVER

GOD.

"STUDIO 5" HAS YOUR FIRST

LOOK.

I TOLD YOU GUYS THAT

GOD DOES NOT EXIST AND HE

IS NEVER THERE WHEN YOU

NEED HIM.

I WAS AFRAID.

BUT NOW I REALIZE IT IS

BECAUSE OF THE THINGS THAT

YOU SAID.

GUYS, COMMUNITY C'MON, WE MADE

IT.

Efrem: IT IS

AVAILABLE NOW ON MULTIPLE

PLATFORMS,

INCLUDING iTUNES.

OUR LATEST HEADLINE COMES

FROM THE MOVIE "SHOW DOG,"

THEY CHANGED ONE OF THE

SCENES IN THE MOVIE

BECAUSE OF COMPLAINTS FROM

PARENTS.

SOME THEATERS PULLED THE

FILM, BUT THE FILM-MAKERS

REVISED IT FOR VIEWING IN

THEATERS THIS HOLIDAY

WEEKEND.

A MOVIE SPOKESPERSON SAYS,

"WE APOLOGIZE TO ANYBODY

WHO FEELS THAT THE

ORIGINAL VERSION OF "SHOW

DOGS," OFFENDED ONE.

> AND OUR FRIENDS AT

"PLUGGED IN" ON LINE ARE

TAKING A LOOK AT THE

LATEST "STAR WARS" MOVIE,

"SOLO."

THREE, TWO, NOW.

THE MOVIE, "SOLO: A

"STAR WARS" STORIES,"

FOLLOWS THE ADVENTURES OF

A YOUNG PERSON.

HE GOES TO WAR AS A

GRUNTER IN THE EMPIRE'S

ARMY, HE STUMBLES ACROSS A

GROUP OF SMUGGLERS AND

THEIR WYLIE LEADER, AND HE

IS ALMOST RIPPED APART BY

A HALF-STAR ROOKIE.

BUT THAT IS NOTHING FOR A

GUY LIKE HANS.

HE SPECIALIZES IN

SMALL-TIME THIEVERY AND

BIG TIME TROUBLE.

YOU THINK EVERYTHING

SOUNDS LIKE A BAD IDEA.

Reporter: HAD IS

SMART AND RECKLESS, AND HE

IS DETERMINED TO KEEP

MOVING TOWARDS HIS BIG

PLAN.

I WAITED A LONG TIME

FOR A SHOT LIKE THIS.

Reporter: AND IF YOU

WATCH CLOSELY, YOU MITES

SEE HIM BECOME THE

GALAXY'S GREATEST PIRATE

IF HE DOESN'T GET HIMSELF

KILLED FIRST.

>

190 YEARS OLD?

YOU LOOK GREAT.

Reporter: FANS CUT

THEIR TEETH ON THE

ORIGINAL "STAR WARS," AND

THEY WILL VERY LIKELY

APPRECIATE WHAT DIRECTOR

RON HOWARD HAS DONE TO

"STAR WARS": EPISODE

FOUR.

THAT SAID, THERE ARE LOTS

OF FAIRLY VIOLENT PERIL

HERE FOR PARENTS AND KIDS

TO NA NAF GREAT.

AND THERE IS SOME PRO

PROFANITY IN THE MIX.

SO I'LL GIVE IT 3.5 OUT OF

5 FOR FAMILY-FRIENDLINESS.
