The first ever stand alone movie of the famous Star Wars series brings you an exciting action with a lot of War in it. Rogue One is something that can also be known as Star Wars: Where it all began. Gareth Edwards, the director of Rogue One has tried to connect this with the series started 40 years ago by George Lucas.
This movie can beat all its predecessors in the terms of battle action and even with the similar setup of 1977. Let us review what is there in the latest Star Wars offering.
Rogue One Movie Introduction:
Rogue One A Star Wars Story is produced by Lucasfilm and directed by Gareth Edwards. Movie distribution comes from Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy, gave the screenplay for Rogue One that is based on a story by Gary Whitta and John Knoll. For the first time ever in a Star Wars film, the score is not composed by John Williams and a new name has made an entry for background score as Michael Giacchino. Film’s first premier came on 10 December in Los Angeles and it was released in US on 16 December.
Rogue One Movie Synopsis:
The opening scene shows Jyn Erso’s mother down by the bullets from Deathtroopers. Star Wars franchise first takes us back in time between the III and IV Episodes of Star Wars. The official synopsis also makes a statement describing how a band of some rebel fighters take on a desperate mission after the foundation of Galactic Empire. The mission here is to steal Death Star plans before it is being used to enforce the rule of Emperor.
Rouge One is quite close to the IV Episode: A new hope in terms of the story whereas the screenwriters Tony Gilroy and Chris Weitz again writes a female centered screenplay just like The Force Awakens. She’s always looked as the daughter of a traitor. Jyn Erso’s father was a brilliant scientist who made it to the Dark Side so that he can design Death Star but plot twists when in turns out that he was captured and forced to do so. The plot revolves a lot around Jyn’s knowledge and her father, Galen. Jyn revolves around planet to planet in search of perfect misfits to join her team so that she can keep up with the mission and she can save everyone from what her father is accused for.

Rogue One Movie Review:
Movie is receiving highly positive reviews from all over the globe. It is a christmas gift to the Star Wars fans. Rogue One is rating 84% on Rotten Tomatoes and gets 4 out of 5 stars from most of the big critics like common sense media and Times of India. It is genuinely bringing back the engaging war action to the Star Wars again and sets up a perfect future franchise for the Star Wars. One of the things appreciated by many is that even if you have not seen any of the previous outcomings of Star Wars, still you will enjoy this one. You get far-flung lands with extraordinary costumes and a more sarcastic useful version of C-3PO, the all new K-2SO. Alan Tudyk has voiced K-2So and he is surely the most entertaining character on the Rogue One panel.
Next character that is engaging and worth mentioning is the blind swordsman Hong Kong who is so good with his other senses that he can bring extensive damage to his enemies. For the first time ever in a Star Wars movie, the original score will be missing from John Williams and for the first time, we are hearing Michael Giacchino. Michael has used a little of Johns’s themes with his own perfect blend to produce a very effective results.
