We have been graced with Steven Spielberg’s amazing creations, once again! I was also lucky to see this in 3D which was spectacular.
This new 2016 release joins the ever popular Star Wars series that has attracted so many fans. It was revealed that Rogue One was a sequel to Star Wars: a New Hope; in which Luke assists in the assassination of the Death Star.
Jyn Erso is acted by the delightful Felicity Jones, alongside Diego Luna as Captain Cassian and Mads Mikkelsen as Galen Erso, Jyn’s father.
Jyn Erso is the daughter of a Galen Erso, who was taken away by Orson Krennic. For years Jyn lived and was unaware of his role in the creation of a powerful weapon that can destroy planets.
Jyn received a message from her father, that was secretly broadcasted, that he had fitted a big fault in the Death Star that could one day destroy it for good. It was then that Jyn realised that her father was actually still there and not lost in his evil plan to create the weapon.
She therefore took it into her own hands to steal the blueprints for the Death Star and was supported by the rebels.
She met Captain Cassian who first did not trust her, based on her fathers plans, but later realised her true grit and supported her in the attempt to obtain the blueprints. She also met a trusty imperial broid, who had avoided reprogramming by the empire. The drone kept them safe when they were finding the blueprints in the data tower, and as a result, sacrificed his life for them. I felt tears in my eyes as he had stayed by them all the way.
She embraced her father for the last time before he died of injuries from rebels. It was a heartbreaking scene as he had left so swiftly when he was taken when she was younger, and she did not have her father to help bring her up.
Her courage was impeccable and she was able to steal the blueprints and transmit them to rebel ships. You will probably recognise the significance of this, as these blueprints were essential in the annihilation of the Death Star in Star Wars: The New Hope.

I am not the most enthusiastic Star Wars fan, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the film. I found it captivating, action packed and out of this world!
Book your place or the ship will disappear into hyperspace.
Bye for now!
