Directed by Gareth Edwards, Rogue One is the first of the new standalone features from Lucasfilm and Disney, which take place outside the core "Skywalker Saga" of films noted by an Episode number. Rogue One tells the story of the small band of rebels that were tasked with stealing the plans to the first Death Star.
The story spins directly off the opening crawl from the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.
In that crawl, it read: "Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet."
May the Fourth Be With You. It's the unofficial - but almost official - day for Star Wars fans to celebrate their nerddom. Why? Because May the Fourth sounds a lot like "May the Force" as in the catchphrase of the Star Wars universe.
Want to celebrate with your fellow Star Wars fans today on May the Fourth? Start off by putting on your favorite t-shirt, socks, leggings, tie, pin, or any other identifying piece of Star Wars material you happen to enjoy. Got it? Great. Now, there are any number of things you can do on your own. Read your favorite Star Wars comic or book, whether it’s a Legend or part of the new all-canon, like Star Wars: Bloodline.
Try out the machete order of the films (that’s 4, 1,2,3,5,6 – with select Clone Wars episodes between 2 and 3) if you’re nasty!
Either way, enjoy Rogue One for a nice low price!
