On top of that, the entire main cast of Rogue One, including Jyn, all died.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story brought in worldwide box office receipts totalling $290m (£225m) this weekend. The ending is one of the movie's great moments, one that Disney thankfully didn't manage to ruin.
"Rogue One" director Gareth Edwards addressed the crawl issue with Entertainment Tonight back in July, five months before the movie's December 16 opening. His excuse? "There are too many things to do and there are too many films out there to see".
It turns out I was right. It is pretty evident Rogue One wins in a Rogue One vs The Force Awakens comparison. Even the cute new robot. For every single character to die in all their movies. Are you excited to see the character return to fight the good fight alongside the Ghost crew come January? Rogue One is the first film set outside a trilogy framework and it does have a tone and rhythm all its own. Director Gareth Edwards stated in previous interviews that he purposely wanted Vader to look the same, despite technological advances in the past four decades. Apparently, everyone thought Disney would not allow it.
"On day one, we were in Lucasfilm in San Francisco with Industrial Light and Magic and John Knowles, our supervisor, he said that they've got a brand new 4K restoration print of A New Hope - it had literally just been finished". It was just assumed by us that we couldn't do that and they're not gonna let us do that. So I was trying to figure out how this ends where that doesn't happen.
Rogue One provides an engrossing experience with a strong war theme seamlessly integrated into the Star Wars universe when a group of rebels attempt to steal the plans for the Death Star.
Though a lot of fans wanted to see Jyn and Cassian survived but the report suggest that killing them all adds to the emotion of the film cost by war.
Rogue One makes it clear that it's a Star Wars film, but it's missing an iconic part of the franchise and the person responsible for creating it isn't happy.
Edwards favors close-up shots where others go for panoramic, giving his world a sense of urgency and reality that hasn't been present in Star Wars for decades. "It's more about his philosophy and who he is and what he thinks about the Rebellion - and how they go about resisting the Empire".
