Rogue One: A Star Wars Story isn’t like the other films. It lives in that awkward transition between Episode 3 and Episode 4, and as such tries to bridge the cinematic and fan base gap created by the two trilogies.The film attempts to channel Kurosawa by trying to turn this franchise based film into a Star Wars Seven Samurai. It assembles a ragtag team of misfits and outcasts to go on an important mission that will save the galaxy. As any Star Wars fan worth their salt knows, that mission is to get the plans that will lead to the destruction of the first Death Star in Star Wars: A New Hope. Having already seen the original Star Wars trilogy, we already know the outcome, but as any adventurist knows, the journey is what’s important.
