“Rogue One” Provides Star Wars Fans With New Hope
Rogue One did not disappoint as the newest addition to the Star Wars franchise.
The film takes place between Episode III and Episode IV and focuses on how the plans to destroy the Death Star were found, leading up to the start of the fourth episode.
In doing so, the audience is able to see what went into the construction of the heart of the Empire and they gain numerous new characters to love.
Jyn Urso, played by Felicity Jones, and Cassian Andor, played by Diego Luna, take on the plot as the two leads and throughout the movie, the audience is able to watch these characters develop into the pride of the rebellion.
The overall movie is absolutely amazing, but viewers have to pay attention to what is going on. The beginning is a little hard to follow, as it keeps changing to new planets that I barely recall hearing about or others that I had never heard of at all, but once you learn Jyn’s father, Galeen Urso, who was the head engineer in the construction of the Death Star, created a trap that would lead to the whole space station exploding, the story line slowly falls into place. After seeing it multiple times, this plot point makes it a lot easier to follow.
Rogue One provides a great explanation and is the perfect filler between the two movies. It also sneaks in C3PO and R2D2, making them the only two Star Wars characters to be in all eight movies.
All in all Rogue One makes a great addition to the Star Wars collection, and I highly recommend it.
