Trivia

Disney's decision to expand the Star Wars film franchise with Rogue One and making it the first installment of a anthology series of spin-off movies was influenced by the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). Marvel Studios was reorganized by Disney in August 2015. The 2nd film in the anthology series Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) was released in 2018. See more »

Goofs

When the actual Death Star schematic is shown on a screen, it has an error - the superlaser dish is shown on the equatorial trench; it is actually above this trench, not on it. This may be a deliberate error done as a throwback to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, which has the same apparent goof. See more »
