Did You Know?

Trivia

The idea of a kyber crystal originated in early drafts for the original film by George Lucas, and was first mentioned in the Alan Dean Foster novel "Splinter of the Mind's Eye", which was the first original Star Wars novel released after Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) premiered. In the novel, which was based on Lucas' ideas for a possible sequel, the "kaiburr crystal" was an artifact that gave a Jedi immense power over the Force. See more »

Goofs

During the space battle over Scarif, in one shot of Gold Leader's Y-Wing cockpit, the edge of the Death Star's equatorial trench can be seen through the back window of the cockpit behind him. This is reused footage from the rebel attack on the Death Star from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. Actually, while it is re-used footage, the background has been digitally altered to be the Shield gate. See more »

What Star Wars should be.
30 December 2018 | by RusticcrayonSee all my reviews

Yes this review is 2 years after the film's release, but it has to be said that this film is what I hoped all the new Star Wars films would be like. Rouge One to me is the best Star Wars film since the original trilogy. The pace and scripting of the movie are great, The story provide just enough time in each of the characters so that you feel invested in what happens to them, and the script is well written compared to any of the recent Star Wars movies, we even get a droid that gives CP3O a run for his money, providing just enough funny quips to keep the movie light in what to me is one of the darkest Star Wars films since the Empire Strikes Back.

Gareth Edwards has done the Star Wars universe proud, which sadly can't be said for the current mess that Disney has been releasing.

If you haven't managed to catch Rouge One yet, then give it ago as it will take you back to the fun and action of the originals, and also make you believe that the Star Wars franchise can produce something good when placed in the hands of someone who understood what Star Wars means to its loyal fans.

Is it perfect no, but it's dam close for me, so much so that this is the only Star Wars movie i have bought since the original trilogy.
