A rebellion built on hope
'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story', is the first film in the new standalone movies from Lucasfilm. After the formation of the Galactic Empire, the Rebel Alliance recruits Jyn Erso to work with Cassian Andor and a team to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
"For the original generation of 'Star Wars' fans who weren't sure what to make of episodes one, two, and three, "Rogue One" is the prequel they've always wanted." ~ Variety
"Rogue One manages to succeed as both super-nerdy fan service and the first entry since the 1977 original that will satisfy people who have never seen a Star Wars film." ~ RogerEbert.Com
