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
Galen Erso is likely a reference to the original character who helped create the rebel alliance, now in Legends canon - Galen Marek. His ship is likely a reference to the movie's title and the crew's call sign of Rogue One, with the ship's name being Rogue Shadow. Jyn Erso is also potentially a reference to Juno Eclipse, Rogue Shadow's pilot and Galen Marek's training droid PROXY may have had some influence in K- 2SO's design and character. This can all be found from Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (2008). See more »
At Jedha, in the wide shots, the Death Star is upside down as shown by the superlaser dish being on the bottom half of the station when it should be on the top half.
The Death Star was rotated into this position for the attack. There's nothing inherently wrong with doing this in space since there is no true up or down in zero gravity. See more »

I personally am a big Star Wars fan, hearing rumours throughout the year of the reshooting and worry within Disney had me cautious about this movie, hoping rather than expecting it to be a great one. I brought my pop (who tends to be very critical of movies) along this time who had never seen a Star Wars movie and never has wanted to watch one. I felt as if this was a great opportunity to bring him along because of it being a standalone movie that has a start and end. The director did an absolutely brilliant job, helped give us a good understanding of the characters whilst moving the story along the way at an appropriate pace to a massive climax, the actor behind the blind monk was the star of the film for me and I definitely think Felicity Jones did a great job as the lead actress of the film The acting cast did a great job to capture the emotion of the movie without overdoing it which was incredibly pleasing to see. For me, it sits just behind Empire Strikes Back as the best Star Wars film and as for pop, came out of the film not saying anything just grinning as much as I've ever seen him until he was dropped off home, where he got out with a wink and said 'Thanks for inviting me, loved every minute of it'
