Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

If you thought that the Star Wars franchise had already been rinsed dry, then I am afraid you would be wrong, very very wrong.

This particular addition to the series is supposed to be placed at the beguinning of the stars wars story in an attempt to illustrate the rise of the rebellion.

Aside from the usual aspects of a LucasFilm production, such as weird human-alien crossover characters and sarcastic robot companions, this film is different in that it is final in its resolution; there is no sequel to follow.

Despite its finality, it is certainly not a let down, and as seems to be a repeated pattern within this franchise, the writers are certainly not afraid to dispose of your favourite characters, no matter how integral to the plot they may seem.

Another expectation that comes with these films is it’s extensive budget, and boy do they know how to spend it. From spellbinding backdrops of the galaxy, to galactic fight scenes full of saber beams and demanding stunts, no one can say that the choreographers and props team weren’t put to work.

  1. Thank you for this short explanation of “Rogue One.” I knew a little of what to expect before watching it. (I try not to read too much because I want to form my own opinion, not being swayed. I enjoyed the movie and watched it twice (so far…).
