Rogue One - Movie Review
By Rav Kaur
Everyone loves Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Yoda. However, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has almost nothing to do with these familiar characters.
Set after the prequel series, and before the actual series, Rogue One is a tale that has to do with the Death Star. Jyn is the daughter of a man who worked for the Galactic Empire, and unwillingly designed the Death Star. Her mother was killed and the Galactic Empire took her father when she was a small girl. Now, years later, she is a young woman, and is kidnapped by the Resistance, because they think she can help their cause. She teams up with a pilot, a blind asian man and a guy with a giant gun to go and retrieve her father. However, the pilot has been given strict instructions to kill her father, and she does not know. Her father tells her that his plans for the Death Star have a way to disable it just before he dies. Now, with a newfound mission, Jyn and her friends go and infiltrate the facility that holds the plans. Barely hanging on to their lives, Jyn manages to get the plans. However, in order to send them to the Resistance’s ship, she must project them, and she cannot, as the Empire’s forces are preventing her from doing just so. Will she send the plans and be able to disable the Death Star? Or will they all die in vain? Find out when you watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
