Star Wars fans finally get what they have been waiting for this week. Rogue one: A Star Wars Story is an enjoyable adventure from the Star Wars series. While watching Rogue One’s end, one can witness the acts of Star Wars legends. The strong story pulls together an exciting adventure for the new viewers though it is different than any of the seven “Saga” series. Directed by Gareth Edwards, the movie sets a strong benchmark that how a good movie can be made without unnecessarily sequels and a tight story. Felicity Jones plays the lead role of Jyn Erso, who is also the third female lead in the franchise. Other actors include Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Ben Mendelsohn and Mads Mikkelsen. Jyn, along with her fellows, tries to find her kidnapped father, Gaken Erso and how the Death Star can be destroyed, which is the Empire’s main weapon. The movie has lots of elements and similar characters and plot that connect to the original movie effectively.
