Rogue One exceeds expectations


Nick Pouch, Staff Writer

The success of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens left fans wanting more, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story gives fans what they want and more than they expected. Rogue One takes place in the middle of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope. The story follows Jyn Erso, daughter of Galen Erso, who is the creator of the Death Star. The story follows Jyn and Captain Cassion, a pilot for the Rebellion, as they try to steal the plans of the Death Star. The story ends just before A New Hope begins. Director Gareth Edwards put great work into this production plenty of high-quality CGI, including two key characters in the first trilogy. Rogue One, is a perfect first movie to kickoff this new Star Wars Trilogy, with future installments to focus on the young Han Solo, and the story of Boba Fett.
