Three decades after the Empire's defeat, a new threat arises in the militant First Order. Stormtrooper defector Finn and the scavenger Rey are caught up in the Resistance's search for the missing Luke Skywalker.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a Wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle-station while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
After a daring mission to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt, the rebels dispatch to Endor to destroy a more powerful Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke struggles to help Vader back from the dark side without falling into the Emperor's trap.
Three years into the Clone Wars, the Jedi rescue Palpatine from Count Dooku. As Obi-Wan pursues a new threat, Anakin acts as a double agent between the Jedi Council and Palpatine and is lured into a sinister plan to rule the galaxy.
After the rebels are overpowered by the Empire on the ice planet Hoth, Luke Skywalker begins Jedi training with Yoda. His friends accept shelter from a questionable ally as Darth Vader hunts them in a plan to capture Luke.
Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padme Amidala, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.
All looks lost for the Rebellion against the Empire as they learn of the existence of a new super weapon, the Death Star. Once a possible weakness in its construction is uncovered, the Rebel Alliance must set out on a desperate mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. The future of the entire galaxy now rests upon its success. Written by
The Rebel Alliance is multi-ethnic. There are now several female fighter pilots. But the engineering team that designed the Death Star is all older white males. See more »
When the shuttle lands on Scarif all of the palm trees surrounding the landing pad are coconut palms. Later an exterior shot of the shuttle shows date palms with pruned leaf bases. These palms are easily available and transplanted as mature trees as the trees in this shot were. See more »

I agree with the review that says Rogue One is the end of an era, but for another reason. Honestly, I have watched the original installments and liked them so I was very disappointed with The Force Awakens Episode Seven, but my disappointment here is for another reason. This is the first Star Wars movie with no Jedi, light sabers or any real force. I know the Asian dude keeps saying he has the force, but of course it is a wish on his part. He is not Jedi or padavan and the force does not surge within him. A Star Wars film without force, Jedi or light saber is not really Star Wars is it. Some might say that with what happened in Episode Seven maybe that is a good thing, but I prefer to think there is certain elements that are a must for Star Wars. Also, in case anyone didn't notice the film does not start with a rolling storyboard. I guess Disney needs the money, but honestly we are the ones giving it to them.
