Sure, Let's Go with That: After the skirmish on Jedha City, K-2SO, Jyn, and Cassian are cornered by a squad of Stormtroopers. The leader of the squad, not knowing that K-2SO has been reprogrammed, asks him where he is taking his "prisoners". The droid attempts to run with it to maintain control of the situation in Cassian's favor, but it predictably backfires.

The Death Star's oft-copied and oft-mocked thermal exhaust port that renders an invulnerable battle station completely vulnerable to a single proton torpedo? Galen Erso designed the reactor so it would explode if struck with a single explosive. The novelisation reveals that he also conspired so that the design team would have no choice but to use exhaust ports.

Darker and Edgier: Rogue One is much grittier in its approach than other Star Wars films, to the point that the already dark The Force Awakens has been called "family-friendly" in comparison. And while K-2SO provides a lot of comic relief, the tone of the film is a lot bleaker than the other movies up until the ending.

 Rogue One / int_17b72e30
comment
Continuity Porn: Rogue One largely serves to explain some aspects of first three Star Wars films that the prequel trilogy did not touch: why the Death Star has an exhaust port that leads straight to its explosive core (its engineer deliberately sabotaged the design for this exact purpose), where the Rogue Squadron from The Empire Strikes Back got its name (one of the heroes comes up with Rogue One on the spot), why the Red Five monicker was open for Luke when there was a Red Ten (Red Five is killed in the climax), why was Leia's ship coincidentally right next to the planet where one of two Jedi in the universe were hiding (her father told her to seek out that Jedi), and why didn't we see the Rebels who stole the Death Star plans in any of the original movies? They died during the battle to get the plans.

All There in the Manual
 Rogue One / int_17ce80aa
comment
All There in the Manual: The backstory novel Catalyst explores the backstory of Orson Krennic and his association with the Erso family, going back to the Clone Wars Era. Many if not all of the code names Jyn reads through while searching for the Death Star plans are mentioned in Catalyst as cover names for various sub-projects associated with the Death Star. The names and technical specs of the new Imperial war machines were covered in Empire Magazine and various books released prior to the film. Notably the new TIE Fighters on Scarif (called TIE Strikers), and the AT-AT variant on the ground (the AT-ACTs a.k.a. All-Terrain Armored Cargo Transports.) The Rogue One novelization reveals further details, both within the main text and in "Supplemental Data" sections in the form of fictional documents such as intelligence intercepts, religious texts, and personal diary entries.

And This Is for...: One of the rebel soldiers exiting the U-wing to support Rogue One in the final battle yells "For Jedha!" as he rushes into battle. Bodhi says "This is for you, Galen." after he's able to send the message out to the Rebel fleet above Scarif, telling them to blow up the planetary shield station so the Death Star plans could be transmitted out, just before he's killed by a grenade.

Never Trust a Trailer
 Rogue One / int_19ebe383
comment
Never Trust a Trailer: There are no fewer than seventeen lines, shots, or scenes from the trailers that ended up being cut from the film (see Missing Trailer Scene on the Trivia tab). Darth Vader doesn't confront the heroes like he's hinted at in the trailers. The Imperial klaxon only goes off prominently once — the rest, it's background noise on Imperial ships during the Scarif battle. Jyn Erso is implied to be a standalone insurgent who only starts working for the Rebellion once they notice her exploits. In the film proper, she's been out of the Rebellion for five years and now actually a petty criminal who wants nothing to do with them, and the Rebellion only picks her up because she might be able to heal a rift between them and another standalone insurgency. She also never defiantly tells Mon Mothma "I rebel." Star Wars Battlefront (2015) got a promotional DLC for the game before the movie released which (supposedly) took the player through the whole mission. Nothing on it goes as planned, especially not the fact that in the game's version, the team escapes. Jyn and company are never chased through the lower halls of the control tower, nor do Jyn or Cassian ever encounter the AT-ACTs

World of Badass
 Rogue One / int_1a74b900
comment
World of Badass: There's not a single major character in this movie that doesn't get at least one chance to be badass to hell and back. Darth Vader has this part nailed down in his job description, naturally, but special mention must go to every single resistance fighter on the surface of Scarif. They know they're outnumbered and outgunned to a degree that's not even funny anymore, but they still don't hesitate for a second and make the Empire pay dearly for everyone they lose.

David vs. Goliath: As usual for the Rebellion vs. Empire conflict. For instance, the Battle of Scarif is reminiscent of D-Day. During the climactic space battle, two Imperial Star Destroyers and a heavily armed space station are destroyed compliments of a squadron of Y-wing bombers, a small corvette, and a quickly conceived and executed plan.

The Cameo
 Rogue One / int_1b65dfad
comment
The Cameo: In a Freeze-Frame Bonus or two, you can see a VCX-100 among the rebel fleet—the Ghost from Rebels. If you listen closely to rebel communications, a General Syndulla is name-dropped. This led to a debate as to whether it's Cham Syndulla, who holds the title of General, or a promoted Hera Syndulla.invoked Word of God confirms that it's Hera, and not her father, and she got a promotion. In addition, the Rebels character Chopper can be seen and heard when the senator is being warned to call off the attack on Eadu. Archived footage of Red and Gold leaders from A New Hope is reused, with existing lines used in A New Hope cut into voiceovers playing over shots of the space battle. Red leader has a voice actor as his original actor had passed away, but Gold leader's original actor contributed his voice to the film. Femi Taylor (or rather, unused footage of her from Return of the Jedi) puts in another appearance as a Twi'lek dancer. An easy one to miss, on Scarif as a squad of Stormtroopers heads out, a mouse droid can be seen trailing behind them. As the Alliance pilots scramble to their ships before the battle of Scarif, a transport drives by with a few pilots. Sharp-eyed viewers will notice an uncredited Seann William Scott sitting in the last seat, just looking over the camera as the transport drives by. Both Rian Johnson and Ram Bergman, the respective director and producer of The Last Jedi, appear as the two technicians in the Death Star's firing chamber.note Rogue One director Gareth Edwards would receive a reciprocal cameo in The Last Jedi, playing a Resistance soldier in the trench on Crait.

Death from Above
 Rogue One / int_1c398324
comment
Death from Above: The not-so-subtle threat of pulling something like this on Jedha is probably one of the reasons there's a Star Destroyer looming above the city seemingly within arm's reach of its inhabitants while the Imperial forces on the ground complete their mission. The Death Star, as the name suggests, was designed for this. Galen Erso falls victim to an X-wing bombing run on Eadu. AT-ACTs tend to inflict this on their targets simply by virtue of being huge. Many of them suffer Karmic Deaths in return when Alliance fighter squadrons rush to the aid of their beleaguered ground forces.

Poor Communication Kills
 Rogue One / int_1c445e86
comment
Poor Communication Kills: Literally in this case. Galen Erso designed the Death Star with a major flaw in it, one that the Rebels could exploit to destroy the entire station, but as the holo-message he leaves for Jyn detailing his plan never reaches the Rebel High Command, they thought Galen was just an Empire collaborator who had built a powerful superweapon to be used to destroy them and therefore must be eliminated. This leads to Galen being killed by a Rebel airstrike instead of being extracted, which strips the Rebels of a reliable source of data on the Death Star, forcing Jyn and Rogue One squad to go on a suicide mission to retrieve the Death Star plans themselves which results in a lot of dead rebels.

 Rogue One / int_213dc284
comment
Closest Thing We Got: There are no Jedi in the film; no epic heroes with Force powers and lightsabers. There's just a bunch of regular people who have to try and stop the Empire. The closest thing are Force believers who used to guard the mine for lightsaber crystals and Darth Vader (if counting general Force-Users). Chirrut is definitely force-sensitive, as he can (among other things) sense the kyber crystal Jyn is wearing as a necklace, but his powers are limited.

Chekhov's Gun: When Cassian asks about the huge dish on top of the Scarif installation and Bodhi explains it's used to transmit large amounts of data, movie-goers will probably guess in an instant that the thing will become important before the mission is over.

 Rogue One / int_243cbd0d
comment
Dope Slap: In Jedha City, when K-2SO is pretending before a squad of Stormtroopers that his rebel teammates are his prisoners, the droid gives Cassian a slap on the side of the face for speaking out of turn. (It was clearly unscripted, given Cassian is stifling laughter afterwards.) He later apologizes for this.

Shoot the Shaggy Dog
 Rogue One / int_272abb98
comment
Shoot the Shaggy Dog: Just narrowly averted. The mission comes dangerously close to failing when the door leading from the Profundity to the Tantive IV jams and the plans are almost intercepted by Darth Vader, and they're only able to slip his grasp by means of there being a wide enough gap in the door for the plans to get through. Barring the movie having a Foregone Conclusion necessitating that the plans make it to the Rebel Alliance, the end makes it abundantly clear that the Rebel Alliance was incredibly lucky.

Plot Armor

comment
Plot Armor: Seemingly played straight when Baze, Cassian, and K2 don't die instantly from being shot by blaster fire (in the case of the former two from Death Troopers) when all other Rebels who got shot instantly fall down dead. It seems to be almost invoked when Chirrut marches directly across an open battlefield without being shot by either side. The plot armor is brutally revoked the second the characters have fulfilled their objectives — Chirrut gets blown up by an explosion the instant he's completed his mission.

Awesome, but Impractical
 Rogue One / int_2bdae2ae
comment
Awesome, but Impractical: The AT-ACTs' impracticality is made strikingly clear in this story. They're intimidating as hell to ground troops, but are severely vulnerable to aircraft. They're big targets and seem to have no ability to track and shoot down the fast-moving X-wings. The empty space where cargo containers can be loaded also makes for a major structural weakness in an AT-ACT's body. (It's a glaring difference from the nigh-unstoppable AT-ATs from Episode 5, since these ones aren't actually military vehicles, they're cargo transports.)

Fantastic Nuke: How the Death Star is used in this film. Because it's never fired at full power, it "merely" causes massive and widespread surface-level destruction to the planets it fires on, instead of a full-out Earth-Shattering Kaboom. Still, the explosions it makes would put any real-life nukes to shame.

Vocal Evolution: Expected with the aging of James Earl Jones. However, while it happened gradually across the entire franchise, the difference can be a bit jarring between Vader's extremely deep and even voice here and the higher-pitched and angrier one he has in A New Hope, which takes place minutes after this film. It can be chalked up to Vader awakening from year-long depression while chasing the Tantive IV and finally summoning his anger.

Supervillain Lair: Darth Vader has a castle surrounded by lava. It is tall, dark, ominous, and looks like it is in hell. Grand Moff Tarkin has a moon-sized space station capable of laying waste to entire worlds. Director Krennic, being a relative underling compared to these two, mostly spends the film bouncing from one base to another as he tries to plug the security leak he's only just learned about, going from the Death Star, to the Khyber Refinery on Eadu, and finally to the Archives on Scarif.

Custom Uniform: Krennic's all white, caped attire definitely makes him stand out, particularly among the darker toned uniforms of his fellow Imperial officers. Galen Erso's uniform on Eadu has its color scheme flippednote overall dark with white shoulders vs. overall white with dark shoulders from those of the rest of his team. Notably averted by Grand Moff Tarkin, who except for his rank insignia wears a standard grey-green Imperial uniform.

La Résistance: The Rebel Alliance is shown as divided when it comes to undertake major action against the Empire, and is almost on the verge of giving up due to the sheer size and power of the Imperial forces. That is, until the battle of Scarif, which resulted in "a new hope". Due to its chief's fanaticism or Shell-Shocked Veteran-induced paranoid behaviour, Saw Gerrera's rebel group has become a Renegade Splinter Faction from the Rebel Alliance. Many people on Jedha don't take it well that the Empire pillages the holy city's kyber crystals' reserves.

No Plans, No Prototype, No Backup: Deconstructed. There is only one copy of the Death Star plans and the rebels keep it that way. This is both to the detriment of the rebels, as the Imperials throw in all available resources to pursue this one copy, but also to their benefit as long as they can keep it out of Imperial hands so that the plans can't be analyzed and the flaw fixed before they can exploit it.

Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism
 Rogue One / int_372bc105
comment
Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism: Despite being probably the darkest Star Wars movie ever made, it leans towards Idealism. The acquisition of the Death Star plans requires enormous sacrifice, including the lives of everyone in the Rogue One team. However, their success brings new hope to the Rebel Alliance and, as we know, their sacrifice is eventually given meaning when it leads to the eventual destruction of the Death Star. In fact, the film slides from one end of the scale to the other by the end of the film, showing the Rebellion shift from being a discordant Army of Thieves and Whores at the start to being the idealistic and unified Rebel Alliance by the climax.

Curb-Stomp Battle: Jyn really establishes her badass Action Girl cred in Jedha City when she utterly curbstomps a squad of Stormtroopers with her collapsible baton and one of their own blasters. Chirrut wipes Stormtroopers with nothing but a Simple Staff and against three times as many opponents as Jyn, as his Establishing Character Moment mere minutes later. Darth Vader's one fight scene involves him absolutely massacring a squad of rebel soldiers, whose only success is getting the Death Star plans away from him by the skin of their teeth. Vader's Star Destroyer's arrival quickly turns the battle over Scarif into one in the Empire's favor. The Rebels have all but won by that point against the defenses over the planet but their fleet has taken such a beating that his lone Star Destroyer is too much for it.

Bittersweet Ending
 Rogue One / int_40cc0c7e
comment
Bittersweet Ending: The Death Star plans are successfully stolen and the Empire suffers a major defeat, but not without great cost: the entire team is killed in action, and the Rebels suffer significant losses, including an entire capital ship when Darth Vader shows up to block their escape and boards the ship, forcing Leia's ship to disembark and flee. Plus, it's known Vader will catch up with Leia. While we as an audience know that the Death Star will be destroyed thanks to this mission, there's a great degree of uncertainty in-universe, though the Rebellion remains hopeful for the future. Imagine for a moment you didn't know the events of A New Hope or if these movies had been released in chronological order. Then at the end of this one: 1. All the heroes are dead. 2. They were successful in getting the Death Star plans to Leia, but she's now on a small ship with scant defenses and has a Star Destroyer with Darth Vader on board bearing down on her. 3. The Rebel Alliance is shown to be loosely organized and with few resources. Now they've just taken very heavy losses in a battle which... 4. Was ended with one shot from the Empire's new super weapon and they're now more powerful than ever. When you consider all that it would be hard to see this film as having anything other than a Downer Ending.

Daylight Horror: The climax of the film is one of the most brutal depictions of a Star Wars battle yet in the films, and it takes place against the backdrop of the gorgeous tropical planet Scarifnote The Maldives were used as the filming location for the planet. Goes Up to Eleven when the Death Star decides to join the fun, with a hefty dose of Soundtrack Dissonance.

Surrounded by Idiots: Krennic's reaction to the fact most of the Imperial staff on Scarif just stands around and stares as the Rebels start detonating explosives around the base's perimeter. It takes Krennic bellowing at them to actually elicit a response to the attack.

The Guards Must Be Crazy
 Rogue One / int_4508b16b
comment
The Guards Must Be Crazy: While you can see signs of it in the film, the novelization confirms that the troops stationed at Scarif were not expecting an attack there - in fact, many of them only worked there because they thought they'd never see any action. Their performance is weak even for Stormtroopers, and only after Elite Mooks from an another planet join in do thy start doing real damage.

You Have Failed Me: Averted by Darth Vader. He orders Krennic to report to his stronghold after the clusterfuck at Eadu and Krennic clearly expects to be killed, but Vader simply threatens him and lets him go, instructing him to clean up his mess. Though he still briefly Force-chokes Krennic to make a point when he gets mouthy.

Advertised Extra: The alien characters (eg. Pao, Bistan, and Moroff) only have brief roles in the movie in spite of have being marketed fairly prominently in the behind-the-scenes featurettes. Darth Vader is an example of this trope done right. While he has less than five minutes of screentime, his appearances within this time-frame (his dismissal of Krennic and his now iconic massacre of Rebel mooks) ensure that every bit of it counts.

Misfit Mobilization Moment: After Jyn's Rousing Speech to the Rebel leaders, which fails to sway them, the core characters finally rally behind her, pledging to help her retrieve the Death Star plans and in the process forming the titular Rogue One team. This in turn inspires those Rebel leaders who agreed with Jyn, like Admiral Raddus, to send the fleet into action without the Council's approval. Which seems to be exactly what Council leaders Mon Mothma and Bail Organa were hoping would happen.

Downer Ending

comment
Imagine for a moment you didn't know the events of A New Hope or if these movies had been released in chronological order. Then at the end of this one: 1. All the heroes are dead. 2. They were successful in getting the Death Star plans to Leia, but she's now on a small ship with scant defenses and has a Star Destroyer with Darth Vader on board bearing down on her. 3. The Rebel Alliance is shown to be loosely organized and with few resources. Now they've just taken very heavy losses in a battle which... 4. Was ended with one shot from the Empire's new super weapon and they're now more powerful than ever. When you consider all that it would be hard to see this film as having anything other than a Downer Ending.

We Used to Be Friends: As shown by the prequel novel Star Wars: Catalyst, Orson Krennic and Galen Erso used to be friends, or at least close colleagues. Krennic saved the Erso family when they were being held captive by Separatists back during the Clone Wars, and found Galen employment in the new Empire—but then he used Galen's research on kyber crystals for his own ends, leading to distrust and eventually conflict between the two.

Book-Ends: The film begins with a ship (Krennic's) arriving above a planet, and ends with another ship (Leia's) departing above another planet. Galen hugs Jyn when the Ersos are about to leave. At the ending, Jyn hugs Cassian as the two embrace the Death Star's blast on Scarif. After Galen is taken and Lyra shot dead, Krennic orders his troops, "Find it!", as if regarding their daughter Jyn as a thing. Near the conclusion, after Cassian has shot Krennic, Cassian prevents Jyn from attacking the fallen Krennic and pulls her away, telling Jyn, "Leave it. Leave it." In the opening confrontation between Krennic and the Ersos, Lyra tells him, "You're going to lose." In his final confrontation with Jyn on Scarif, she tells him, "You've lost."

Cryptic Conversation: Chirrut's very first scene has him having one with Jyn about kyber crystals. Nothing he says actually explains anything by that point due to lots of Vagueness Is Coming, but one line in particular holds several layers of meaning: "The strongest stars have hearts of kyber." Aside from sounding like (and probably being) a badass religious mantra about the crystals' origin, it alludes to the then-unknown fact that the Death Star's superlaser is powered by kyber crystals. Another facet manifests in the kyber necklace Jyn was given by her mother and has been wearing ever since. When things are at their darkest, she takes it out and draws from it the strength she needs to see her mission through.

comment
Eviler Than Thou: Krennic is the film's main antagonist, but is ultimately little more than a Middle-Management Mook, being on the receiving end of this trope from both Tarkin and Vader three times. Tarkin is able to take control of the Death Star from him with only a few words as well as pointing out that, under Krennic's watch, there was a confidentiality breach regarding the Death Star's existence and Galen Erso's main facility, and when Krennic attempts to go over his head to Vader in an attempt to take control back, Vader simply makes it clear how unimpressed he is, via Force choke. And then he's finally vaporized by the Death Star's signature laser when Tarkin orders it fired on Scarif to "cover" their losses and manages to have the laser aimed directly at Krennic.

Central Theme
 Rogue One / int_5ce7dbb9
comment
Central Theme: Trust; Several of the characters insist on the importance of trusting each other, despite coming from different factions and with different motivations. The Imperial characters, notably, don't seem to trust each other and spend the film trying to outmaneuver each other rather than cooperate. Rebellion; even the Rebellion has rebels. At some point in the film, it picks up "Hope", which entirely supplants it by the last few seconds. Hope; as Cassian says to Jyn early on and Jyn later says to the Rebel Alliance council, "Rebellions are built on hope". Sacrifice. A long series of characters, including main characters, supporting characters, and nameless Red Shirts, are killed in turn while making sure the Rebels get one step closer to victory. At one point we see a character pass the plans through a jammed door to a comrade moments before Vader kills him, only having time to do so because of a dozen other rebels distracting Vader at the cost of their own lives.

Dissonant Serenity: When the Death Star destroys Jedha City, killing at least tens of thousands in the blink of an eye, Krennic watches the spectacle in rapturous amazement and whispers "It's... beautiful." The soundtrack has a tendency to join in with this, the music that plays over the most horrific scenes is often a simple quiet lament instead of the more bombastic orchestral stings that the original trilogy's score was known for.

Skeptic No Longer: Baze Malbus, the cynic who has lost his faith in the Force, repeats Chirrut's prayer with him as his friend dies, before marching towards an entire squad of Death Troopers. In the novelization, Krennic doesn't think much of the Force either, nor does he give much thought to Darth Vader's "dead Sith cult" — at least, until Vader puts the Force Choke on him.

When Krennic calls after Vader as the latter is walking away, there is a moment of utter silence... then with no warning, we hear the terrifying bass rumble of Vader's Force-choke just before Krennic begins gasping for air. Vader's breath announcing just who is in the darkness in front of a group of Rebel troopers.

comment
Deflector Shields: The movie give us a closer look at a full planetary shield with the one around Scarif. It surrounds the planet with only one orbital station used as a door to allow ship traffic. Several X-wings manage to slip past to attack the forces on the ground before the shield door is closed, but when it does a pair of fighters can't recover in time and smashes against it. The shield also stops transmissions (except for minimal ones using a dedicated imperial channel), which is why the Rebels need to destroy the orbital station and bring down the shield before the Rogue One team on Scarif can transmit the Death Star plans to the ships above.

Sequel Hook: Given that this film is about the events leading to the original film, it's a given. The film's climax has Darth Vader trying and failing to secure the stolen Death Star plans, watching as the Tantive IV takes off and jumps to Hyperspace. We finally see the plans delivered into the hands of Princess Leia, who will give them to R2-D2 during the original film's Action Prologue.

Armor Is Useless
 Rogue One / int_638b65bc
comment
Armor Is Useless: Zig-Zagged. The Stormtroopers are at it again, in fine Star Wars tradition. When a blind guy with a wooden staff can curbstomp the hell out of you and a dozen of your buddies in just a few seconds, you might as well go into battle naked. On the other hand, several characters take more than one shot to die. This includes some Stormtroopers. Perhaps their armor offers some protection against guns, but not as much against concussive blows. K-2SO is shown taking an incredible amount of punishment from stormtroopers, while an identical model droid earlier in the film is instantly killed with one shot from a laser pistol. Baze, who is the only main character wearing heavy armor, takes several shots from Death Trooper rifles, which previously killed all their targets instantly. On the other hand, he still seems wounded (or at least winded) by the blasts, and the last time he gets shot knocks him to his knees and leaves him too weak to get out of the range of a grenade in time.

After cleaving straight through the second Destroyer's upper hull, the Hammerhead proceeded to push the first Destroyer directly into the planetary shield gate; destroying them both.

Hopeless War: Some people in the Rebellion have come to view the battle against the Empire as a lost cause. The Rebels have yet to score a meaningful victory against the seemingly unstoppable Empire, and with the news of a planet-killer weapon being constructed, some leaders have abandoned hope and refuse to support the futile Alliance cause any longer. It takes Jyn leading Rogue One behind enemy lines to steal the Death Star plans to ignite A New Hope for the Alliance... at the cost of their own lives.

Meaningful Echo: "Rebellions are built on hope." Cassian says it to Jyn on Jedha, and she says it to the Alliance leaders when they say there's no hope of getting the Death Star plans off Scarif. Later, when asked what the rebels gave to her, Leia simply says it's "hope". Jyn's mother's last words are warning Krennic that he will lose. Galen says the same thing to Krennic shortly before he dies. When Jyn confronts Krennic after doing everything she could to get the Death Star plans to the rebels, she informs him that he has lost. "I am one with the Force and the Force is with me." Chirrut repeats it as his Survival Mantra through intense situations in the film, even as Baze doubts the validity of his best friend's faith. By the end, Baze has regained enough faith in the Force to chant it with Chirrut as he dies in Baze's arms.

Casting Gag
 Rogue One / int_6ec4232f
comment
Casting Gag: Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen — Guan Yu and Cao Cao — from The Lost Bladesman, both appear here. Temperament-wise, their characters are a pretty close match. Riz Ahmed's character takes part in a dangerous mission where the entire team are killed, much like his character in Four Lions. Bodhi is also killed offscreen in an explosion seconds after fulfilling his role in the plan, though Ahmed's character in Four Lions was the last one to die and was directly responsible for the explosion that killed him. Alan Tudyk has already been in a string of Disney movies (Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, Big Hero 6, Zootopia, Moana...) plus a Disney cartoon (Star vs. the Forces of Evil), and rather than being compared to John Ratzenberger in Pixar movies, he's become associated with a Shocking Swerve or some other major plot twist in the story. The Kill 'Em All ending might count, and his character is the first in the ending to die. Tudyk again, as an overly chatty robot with a penchant for snark and on occasion pilots a ship who gets killed helping retrieve sensitive information. Mads Mikkelsen plays a Reluctant Mad Scientist opposite his Friend Turned Rival who's a high-ranking Imperial wearing a white uniform and cape like Grand Admirals in Legends, and the first canon character to do so. With the trailer revealing this, everyone immediately started wondering if the character is a human stand-in for Grand Admiral Thrawn. Not long after, Thrawn himself was introduced to canon in Star Wars Rebels, voiced by Lars Mikkelsen, Mads' brother. Ben Mendelsohn plays another villain who's put in his place by a man in a mask.

This trope is seemingly invoked when Chirrut walks through a barrage of fire from the Death Troopers, while reciting his Force prayer.

Arc Words
 Rogue One / int_7464705c
comment
Arc Words: "Hope". For a good reason. "Stardust". "Trust". The last thing Jyn's mother tells her is "Trust in the Force" before giving her the kyber crystal necklace. More than a few characters emphasize the need to trust one another, while much of the plot focuses on the fact that they have every reason not to, coming from various conflicting factions and backgrounds. In the novelization, at one point, Senator Mothma describes the reason for why she trusts Jyn is because she has 'fire', a theme previously used in Rebels media as something synonymous with rebellion and hope. "I am one with the Force and the Force is with me." Chirrut repeats it as his survival mantra at dangerous moments throughout the film, and as he lies dying in Baze's arms, Baze joins him in saying it, before repeating it as he faces down the Death Troopers. "You'll never win." Each member of the Erso family says this to Krennic at significant moments in the movie. Lyra says it right before being killed by his Death Troopers, Galen says it after Krennic has his team of scientists executed, when Jyn confronts Krennic at the top of the Scarif tower after successfully broadcasting the Death Star plans, she finally changes it to "You've lost."

Saved by Canon: The major and minor characters who don't die are because they appear in chronologically later works. Of course, those who appear in the Original Trilogy: Darth Vader and Mon Mothma are safe in this film, while Bail Organa, Wilhuff Tarkin, and Red and Gold Leaders survive it only to face Doomed by Canon in A New Hope. Since Rebels takes place a few years before the Battle of Yavin, this movie confirms that at least Hera Syndulla and Chopper, as well as the Ghost, will survive until then. Ponda Baba and Doctor Cornelius Evazan aren't there when Jedha is destroyed, since they appear at the Mos Eisley Cantina on Tatooine in A New Hope.

Friend or Foe: While the protagonists are heading to the facility where Galen Erso is to find him, the Alliance loses contact with them and so Intelligence general Davitz Draven, who believes Galen cannot be trusted and wants him dead rather than extracted, orders X-wing fighters to bomb the facility. The bombing run kills Galen and nearly does so for Jyn as well.

For Want of a Nail
 Rogue One / int_79a60aec
comment
For Want of a Nail: Per Galen Erso's own expert opinion, the Empire could build the Death Star eventually without him. By forcing him to work on it (and for Jyn to really hate the Empire), Orson Krennic not only sows the seeds of the Death Star's destruction but of the destruction of the entire Empire and the Sith. Galen builds in a deadly chain reaction flaw, which leads to him sending a message about it, which leads to the attempt to steal the plans (involving and only occurring because of Empire-hating, revenge-seeking commando Jyn) from people brought together because of Galen's message and defector. This leads to the frantic Battle of Scarif and Vader chasing the plans across the galaxy. Which leads to the plans being jettisoned in R2-D2 to a backwater desert planet inhabited by a certain Luke Skywalker. We all know how that ultimately worked out for the Emperor. ANY deviation in timeline or method in trying to acquire the plans would mean Luke does not enter the galactic stage. Well done Galen Erso.

Tentacled Terror: Bo Gullet, Saw Gerrera's Living Lie Detector, is a six-foot-tall land-dwelling cephalopod that subjects its victims to such horrendous Mind Rape that most of them come out insane. Just watching the process may provide some serious Nausea Fuel even for those viewers that don't usually have any problems with tentacled creatures of any size.

Earth-Shattering Kaboom: Subverted. Krennic initially intends to destroy Jedha outright with the Death Star, but Tarkin tells him to just blast the capital city at minimum power, which blows a big chunk out of the planet and would almost certainly leave it uninhabitable in the longer run, but still largely intact. The same thing later happens to Scarif.

"The Reason You Suck" Speech: Jyn gives one to Cassian when she finds out that he intended to kill her father rather than rescue him. She lashes out at him and says "You may as well be a Stormtrooper." This leads to a Shut Up, Kirk! when Cassian turns it right back on her. Cassian defends himself by saying that he's done horrible things for the Rebellion, but he's been in it since he was six years old. He also says he has actually been out there trying to make a difference while Jyn was just running around being a criminal rather than making a meaningful impact.

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!
 Rogue One / int_7fbb2a3
comment
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: The Rebel Alliance launches a strike that kills Galen Erso and nearly kills his daughter, without whom they would never have realized the flaw in the Death Star. Jyn notes the irony, that Alliance bombs killed her father, who only served the Empire in order to ensure that the Death Star could be destroyed. While the initial plan was to distract the Imperials on Scarif while stealing the plans and subsequently getting the hell out, Alliance interference led to the closing of the shield gate, rendering the plan impossible and dooming everyone on the planet. Then again, it's debatable if the team would have been able to escape Scarif on their own.

"Trust". The last thing Jyn's mother tells her is "Trust in the Force" before giving her the kyber crystal necklace. More than a few characters emphasize the need to trust one another, while much of the plot focuses on the fact that they have every reason not to, coming from various conflicting factions and backgrounds.

Black and Gray Morality
 Rogue One / int_8767b1f3
comment
Black-and-Gray Morality: The Empire has always been black throughout the franchise, and are no different here. The Gray comes from the Rebels. Many of the characters — main characters included — admit to lying, stealing, cheating, and killing in the past just to survive in life, even before they joined the Rebellion. On the whole, the film shows that the Rebellion — long seen to be the "good guys" of the series — isn't exactly all good either. At the moment the film takes place, the Alliance isn't as united as shown in previous films, being demoralized by consecutive defeats and the news of the Empire superweapon. They employ mercenaries, assassins, saboteurs, anything they could get their hands on to have even the slightest chance of taking the fight back to the Empire. They also aren't above blackmailing people, such as Jyn, in order to get them to cooperate. Best shown in Cassian, who shoots his informant in the back when it was clear that the guy would slow him down, and is tasked by a Rebel officer to assassinate Galen Erso for his part in creating the Death Star, even if he has to do it in front of Galen's own daughter Jyn. In the end, as Jyn bitterly notes, it was the Rebel airstrike that killed her father, not the Empire.

There Is No Kill Like Overkill
 Rogue One / int_8b606a51
comment
There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Using the Death Star to destroy Jedha's capital city counts as this, as it's been established elsewhere in Star Wars lore that a Star Destroyer has more than enough conventional firepower to level a city-sized area in short order. Though one could infer from the dialogue that Tarkin really just wanted to make sure the superlaser actually worked, and didn't actually intend to cause an extinction-level event. Not that he minds. Or cares. In order to get rid of the rebel commandos, Tarkin orders the Death Star to destroy the entire area around the Imperial base on Scarif — a sector the size of half the Pacific Ocean. He also (unlikely to be by coincidence given the animosity between the two men) has the superlaser aimed directly at the antenna deck where the wounded Krennic is lying.

Doomsday Device: The film downplays this, but still shows how horrible the Death Star is. Tarkin orders it used twice, but at minimum setting. The first use destroys a city... but then also tears up the ground surrounding it, to the point where the debris kicked up reaches the upper atmosphere. The second use creates a mushroom cloud just like a nuclear blast, but the blast keeps growing until it's the size of a small continent.

Laser-Guided Karma
 Rogue One / int_90e31482
comment
Laser-Guided Karma: Literally. Krennic orders the Death Star's super-laser to be test fired on Jedha, committing a war crime in the process. The next time said weapon fires, Krennic is not just in the targeted area, he is hit by the superlaser beam directly, which misses the actual target it is aimed at by several miles as a consequence. The events in Catalyst imply that it might be Tarkin's deliberate attempt to get rid of Krennic for what he did to him. Additionally, continued development of the Death Star was possible because of Krennic's exploitation of the Erso family, and yet he's undone when the remaining Ersos give their all to get the plans to the Rebel Alliance. Not only that, but he's only trapped there because he went to confront Jyn personally and got shot by Cassian, leaving him too weak to move or escape in time. If he'd just stayed in the control center until it was clear the battle was lost and then gone to an escape ship, he might have been able to hyperjump away from the planet in time. Tarkin's order that the Death Star test only render Jedha uninhabitable, instead of destroying it outright (so that the moon's natural resources could still be exploited by the Empire instead of being vaporized), made it possible for Jyn Erso to escape. She brought with her the knowledge that the Death Star had a design flaw, which in turn leads to Tarkin's own death in A New Hope when that flaw is discovered and exploited. And Tarkin's completely gratuitous use of the superlaser on Scarif to make sure the Death Star plans would never fall in Rebels' hands (with the added bonus of killing his hated political rival Krennic) guarantees that Tarkin will never learn about the design flaw until it's too late. Krennic's spiteful and hasty execution of the Death Star scientists, and Galen Erso's death in the ensuing confrontation, ensures that the Empire's only knowledge of the Death Star is limited to the Scarif archives. By the time they start to realize there is a dangerous flaw in the system that the Rebels were interested in, the plans, their only way to know, are already in Alliance custody, prompting the chase at the end of the film and the majority of A New Hope.

Apocalypse How: A Class 5 example. Despite the Death Star only shooting at minimum power, the superlaser targeting the Holy City of Jedha delivers a huge amount of energy, seeming to have penetrated the moon's crust and created a shockwave in its mantle, as the ground is shown peeling off the surface of the moon (which is what would happen if a planet was hit by a large enough impactor, and presumably a giant death laser as well). The moon probably isn't going to be habitable in the wake of such massive geological devastation.

Bathos: Vader's meeting with Krennic on Mustafar is mostly rather terrifying, because, well, it's Vader, but it's also one of the funniest scenes in the movie thanks to Vader doing nothing but mocking Krennic the entire time and sending him out with a really bad pun.

Took a Level in Badass
 Rogue One / int_9bcd82c0
comment
Took a Level in Badass: The humble Y-wing bomber, generally considered obsolete at best in most sources, shows exactly why Gold Squadron is chosen to make the first assault on the Death Star in the original film: a small group completely disables an Imperial I Star Destroyer in a single pass. She may be outdated as a front-line fighter, but more than proves her mettle in the attack role. Darth Vader was never not badass, per se, but years as the Series Mascot did make him less scary compared to characters who were written to surpass him in terms of intimidation or combat feats. And then he comes out of the darkness and brutally slaughters a group of Rebel troopers.

Interface Spoiler: Averted. Every planet gets a title card when we first arrive there, except for Coruscant, which only appears briefly in a flashback, and a planet Director Krennic visits halfway through the film, whose name and a knowledge of the Star Wars universe together would have spoiled Darth Vader's first appearance a few scenes early, since it's set on Mustafar, the planet where he received the injuries that meant he was put in his suit.

Foreshadowing: Jyn finds out the Empire is doing research on hyperspace tracking. The film that came out right after Rogue One, The Last Jedi, sees the First Order using a device that allows them to do just that 34 years later. When the two are in Jedha, Cassian mentions to Jyn the city is about to blow up. It's a metaphor for the fight he's expecing, but unknowningst to him, Krennic and Tarkin need something to test the Death Star on. The city blows up, all right.

Suicide Mission
 Rogue One / int_9e062ca3
comment
Suicide Mission: The garrison stationed on the Imperial archives on Scarif is too entrenched and too heavily armed (replete with AT-ACTs) for the Rogue One commandos to have any hope of coming back alive after the shield wall is closed. Indeed, the Rebellion's council refuses to allow an assault in the first place, so Jyn and her allies leave Yavin IV without permission. In the end, they succeed in stealing the plans and transmit them to the Rebel fleet, but at the price of their lives. It's also suicide for nearly all of the Rebel fleet that later arrives to support them, as they prove no match for the Imperial fleet stationed above Scarif plus Darth Vader's own fleet. Fortunately, they get the plans into the hands of Leia on the Tantive IV, and much of the fleet manages to flee at lightspeed.

For all of Chirrut's talking about the Force, we're never told that he's a Force sensitive — certainly he was never a Jedi. However, his skills through the film do seem to imply he is, or at least that his hearing sense and proprioception are beyond the conceivable human level. He can sense the presence of Jyn's Force-resonant Kyber crystal pendant despite it being under her jacket, pinpoints multiple moving targets in a rushed battlefield just as well as if he was seeing them; makes an improbably accurate judgement about Cassian's true intentions basing only on what he claims to be the Force around him; scores a picture perfect hit on a TIE fighter with a blaster, among many other speeding starfighters no less; and, finally, walks through a dense line of fire (from Death Troopers, no less, who were previously knocking down rebels like bowling pins and shot one guy the instant he poked his head out of cover) without being hit by any laser and manages to find his objective in the middle of a noisy battlefield without any help or guide.

Double-Meaning Title
 Rogue One / int_a4905771
comment
Double-Meaning Title: "Rogue One" is both the call sign of Jyn's unit, and a reference to Jyn being an outsider/problem child of the Rebellion. On a metatextual note, director Gareth Edwards has stated that the movie could be considered the "rogue one", since it's the first to not have anything to do with the Skywalkersnote with the exception of, of course, Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker, as well as a cameo by Leia and that it doesn't follow some of the traditional conventions associated with the series (such as an opening crawl).

Karma Houdini: Davits Draven is never shown to face any reprimanding for ordering a bombing run onto the facility Galen Erso was in, even though Galen would have helped the Alliance, that could have killed the protagonists' team. Particularly as the order was certainly born out of his distrust of Galen Erso, causing him to want the man killed rather than extracted. This is despite the fact that Draven is defying a direct order from Mon Mothma that Erso is to be retrieved alive.

Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy
 Rogue One / int_a796d2a6
comment
Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: Seems to be in effect, as the heroes survive barrages by the white rank-and-file Stormtroopers. Not only poor marksmanship, but poor tactics with ranged weaponry entirely. Several of the Stormtroopers that Chirrut engages on Jedha run up to point-blank range before attempting to fire on him, bringing them well within melee range of Chirrut and his staff. Still, they kill Rebel red shirts by the dozen, and at least one man has to deliberately take a bullet so Bodhi can get the message out. It's showcased in the finale. While everyone in Rogue One does die, they all — with the exception of K-2SO, who is a seven-foot robot and difficult to miss — are killed through explosions rather than shot. Chirrut and Baze are killed by Death Troopers, but only because (in Chirrut's case) they hit the console he was standing behind instead of him, and Baze is shot several times but is only killed when he's too wounded to move out of the blast of a grenade set off a few feet away from him. Not so much with the elite Death Troopers, who immediately start sniping down Rebels. At least until Chirrut starts walking through the fray... This trope is seemingly invoked when Chirrut walks through a barrage of fire from the Death Troopers, while reciting his Force prayer. All of the Death Trooper's shots narrowly miss him, as if the Force itself willed it. As soon as he completes his task, he is killed when the troopers blow up the nearby console he was operating, sending him flying.

Code Name: The project to build the Death Star is filed under a code name, "Stardust", the same name Galen affectionately called Jyn, allowing her to figure out the project's name and retrieve the plans in the vault. The titular "Rogue One" becomes the team's callsign when they leave for Scarif. As in the original trilogy, the Rebel Red, Gold, and Blue Squadrons use callsigns during the climactic battle, such as Blue Leader and Red Fivenote doubling as a Mythology Gag explaining why that callsign was available for Luke.

No-Sell: During the assault on Scarif, Baze fires a missile at an advancing AT-ACT walker. Despite scoring an impressive headshot, the giant machine recovers immediately and keeps marching forward and then looks directly at Baze, the pilots clearly pissed off. It doesn't fare so well when X-wings swoop by a second later to nail it in the same spot, however. Several Rebel troopers open fire point-blank at Darth Vader. Unsurprisingly, they're slain for their troubles.

Super-Powered Robot Meter Maids: The AT-ACTs are supposed to only be cargo transports, yet are armed with big guns (though not the truly huge chin-mounted ones that the designed-specifically-for-combat AT-ATs have) and are durable enough to take a missile to the cockpit. The idea behind this is that while they aren't designed for combat, the Empire wants them to be able to protect their own cargo.

Near-Villain Victory: Though it's a Foregone Conclusion that the Death Star plans would eventually end up in the Rebels' hands, the film does cut it close. Jyn and Cassian send the plans just minutes before the Death Star shows up and destroys the facility, and the original set of its plans. Darth Vader casually mows down Rebel soldiers one by one as the surviving soldiers desperately try to keep the data disk out of his reach. It ends up on Tantive IV just in time before Vader could recover it. As that disk is the only remaining copy of the Death Star plans, the Sith Lord is literally a couple steps away from rendering every sacrifice the Rebels made in the Battle of Scarif meaningless.

Oh, Crap!
 Rogue One / int_ad1db87c
comment
Oh, Crap!: Baze has this look on his face when he sees the seismic shockwave of Jedha City's destruction approaching. Rapidly. Probably the dominating thought in every rebel's head when the AT-ACTs join the ground battle for Scarif. Baze gets another one seconds later after he fires a missile at the closest walker, smashing its head sideways... and that's it. The thing takes a moment like it's trying to figure out if that just really happened, then "looks" directly at Baze with what feels like a promise of "You are so dead!" Cue Screw This, I'm Outta Here!. Jyn and Cassian share this reaction when Kaytoo informs them that the Empire has closed the shield wall, as that's the moment when the reality that they are on a suicide mission hits them. Played for Laughs when Jyn wears one after thinking she blasted the wrong KX unit during the Jedha ambush, only for K-2SO to pop out from a nearby alley and ask her if she knew that wasn't him. Krennic gets a silent, understated version of this when he looks up and sees his own Death Star in orbit, the main dish aimed directly at him.

All for Nothing
 Rogue One / int_aed65980
comment
At the very end, the sliding doors apparently can't be opened manually if the power is cut — when it finally does open, after Vader's killed every Rebel on his side of it, it's presumably from him forcing it open with the Force — and this alone almost caused the entire movie to be for nothing. (Unless, of course, Vader was using the Force to keep it closed.)

Immediate Sequel
 Rogue One / int_aeec99a9
comment
Immediate Sequel: Or "Immediate Prequel", in this case. Rogue One occurs mere days before the assault on the Death Star seen in A New Hope, ending within an hour before the skirmish over Tatooine (according to the first short story in the book From a Certain Point of View). The film ends with Tantive IV fleeing with the Death Star plans while pursued by Darth Vader's Star Destroyer, Devastator, just where we see it at the beginning of A New Hope.

Retcon: Along with Revision: it's established Rogue One takes place immediately before A New Hope, which makes Leia's "diplomatic mission" cover story even more of a blatant lie. No wonder Vader wasn't impressed. A New Hope refers to the plans as "data tapes" (presumably because the film was made in 1977). Here, we see the plans and they are on something more like a high-tech USB stick.

Grenade Spam
 Rogue One / int_b2d59eb2
comment
Grenade Spam: There are a lot of grenades used throughout the film, more than in the entirety of Episodes I through VII combined, which is quite fitting for a gritty war movie. Although there's no particular character or troop type that uses grenades as their primary weapon, all factions and a significant fraction of fighters in Rogue One use (or become the victim of) at least one grenade before the credits roll.

Second Law of Metafictional Thermodynamics
 Rogue One / int_b43754f1
comment
Second Law of Metafictional Thermodynamics: The article for the Second Law sums it up best, "anything that can be expended, will be expended." As such, most unnamed characters, whether they're rebels or a stormtroopers, are killed in droves, often by violent explosives or waves of gunfire. And further than that, nearly everything new to this movie is destroyed; Jedha city, the Scarif base, the entire Rogue One crew, Orson Krennic, the Erso family, Saw Gererra, and all of Blue Squadron, are all gone while the characters from A New Hope and on are safe because they have to be.

No OSHA Compliance
 Rogue One / int_b47d95be
comment
No OSHA Compliance: A surprisingly subdued case for a Star Wars movie. Landing pads above bottomless abysses are still lacking in railings, but most of the rest we get to see of (Imperial) architecture at least feels safe enough. In a situation inherited from A New Hope, we see two Imperial engineers who have to stand next to the super laser with barely enough space to stand and no railing. Played straight when Jyn has to climb up through the inside of the control tower, and has to acrobatically flip upwards while nailing the timing exactly to avoid being cut to pieces by a hatch that rapidly opens and closes with scything teeth. At the very end, the sliding doors apparently can't be opened manually if the power is cut — when it finally does open, after Vader's killed every Rebel on his side of it, it's presumably from him forcing it open with the Force — and this alone almost caused the entire movie to be for nothing. (Unless, of course, Vader was using the Force to keep it closed.) The unnecessarily deadly Dilating Door Jyn has to pass to get out of the vault room.

Internal Homage: The film opens with a large-object-entering-the-top-of-the-frame shot that echoes the famous Overhead Star Destroyer Shot that opens A New Hope. A later shot uses a diagonal shadow to give a visual effect reminiscent of the main series' Idiosyncratic Wipes. The Death Star firing sequence in this film is almost a shot-to-shot recreation of the firing sequence in A New Hope.

Both Sides Have a Point: Jyn is furious with Cassian for pretending to go along with trying to rescue her father, only to attempt to assassinate him on a superior's orders; she says he's no better than a Stormtrooper. In another film she'd have the moral high ground, but Cassian angrily fires back that he's been fighting against tyranny and oppression for decades, while she's been keeping her head down and refusing to take part in the conflict; she doesn't get to criticize the methods he uses to strike back against the Empire when she's only now become emotionally invested in the war.

Serkis Folk: How Wilhuff Tarkin is portrayed this time around — a real actor, Guy Henry, is there doing an impression of Peter Cushing, but a digital version of Cushing's face is superimposed over Henry's face. Furthermore, Leia's brief appearance in the final moments of the film works in the same way, portrayed by Ingvild Deila, but still voiced by Carrie Fisher. Both Cushing and Fisher are given acknowledgement for the use of their likenesses in the credits.

Outrun the Fireball: A variation — the Rebels have to outrun (and later out-fly) mountains of debris crashing down from the wake of the blastwave from the Death Star's test shot from above Jedha. Subverted when the Death Star fires on Scarif. There are no escape ships left, and even if they were, Jyn and Cassian are probably too exhausted and wounded to get to them anyway, so there's nothing for them to do but sit back and wait for the end.

Hope Spot: Rebel ships are jumping into hyperspace... But the last few crash into a Star Destroyer that just arrived. Darth Vader's, to boot! In the end, Jyn has successfully transmitted the Death Star plans to the rebel fleet and Cassian has incapacitated Krennic. The two look to be in the clear to escape the planet alive, then the Death Star itself arrives and eliminates any chance of that happening. Even after the Death Star fires, its superlaser misses the base itself, destroying the comm dish but striking the surface some miles away from the installation. Much like Jedha, this offers enough time for them to be rescued. Unfortunately all Alliance ships on the surface are already down, Bodhi is dead and the shuttle has been destroyed, and they're too far from the landing pads to steal a ship themselves.

Offscreen Teleportation: Considering she had to climb down into a very deep chasm in the midst of a raging thunderstorm while Cassian and Bodhi just had to move over some rough terrain, Jyn reached the lower ladder to the Eadu installation's landing pad awfully quickly. She then got to the top of the several hundred feet of ladder in about a minute. Cassian manages to climb all the way up to the top of the control tower despite being heavily injured, and makes it up there in seemingly less time than either Jyn (who had a head start) and Krennic (who just took the elevator.)

Cool Starship: As per usual for a Star Wars film, this movie has several of them. Aside from iconic ones like Star Destroyers, X-wings and Y-wings, this film also introduces the UT-60D or "U-wing", a transport/gunship craft employed by the Rebellion, and the TIE Striker, an atmospheric air superiority fighter used by the Empire. The Hammerhead-class corvette, making its first live-action debut in this film, also counts. Further, the previously-derided Y-wing, which had been portrayed as slow and awkward compared to the X-wing, is shown in this film to be capable of knocking a Star Destroyer out of commission in short order.

Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: For all of Chirrut's talking about the Force, we're never told that he's a Force sensitive — certainly he was never a Jedi. However, his skills through the film do seem to imply he is, or at least that his hearing sense and proprioception are beyond the conceivable human level. He can sense the presence of Jyn's Force-resonant Kyber crystal pendant despite it being under her jacket, pinpoints multiple moving targets in a rushed battlefield just as well as if he was seeing them; makes an improbably accurate judgement about Cassian's true intentions basing only on what he claims to be the Force around him; scores a picture perfect hit on a TIE fighter with a blaster, among many other speeding starfighters no less; and, finally, walks through a dense line of fire (from Death Troopers, no less, who were previously knocking down rebels like bowling pins and shot one guy the instant he poked his head out of cover) without being hit by any laser and manages to find his objective in the middle of a noisy battlefield without any help or guide. Jyn's kyber crystal pendant seems to have implied powers as well, as her mother tells her "Trust in the Force" and it seems to keep Jyn safe everytime she does. She's shown tightly clutching it in several scenes right before making a miraculous escape. Notably, when Rogue One is sneaking through the Imperial shield gate, the Imperial authorities seem not to buy it...until Jyn clutches her necklace, and a few seconds later, the Imperials let them through. She also doesn't appear to be wearing it on Scarif, and she dies there.

We ARE Struggling Together
 Rogue One / int_cbdd9a55
comment
We ARE Struggling Together: Director Krennic and Darth Vader aren't friends. They're barely allies and Krennic understandably feels threatened by the Sith Lord. The Rebel Alliance is another example, being not nearly as united as they are from Episode IV onwards. Saw Gerrera's group is not even a part of the Rebel Alliance, using far more extreme tactics than they prefer. Rogue One themselves all come from different backgrounds with different motivations for being on the mission. They don't even adopt their team name until the final act. Cassian is a lifelong Rebel. He's been fighting for the cause literally since he was a child and pretty much knows nothing else. He's been given orders to assassinate Galen Erso as an Imperial collaborator for working on the Death Star, without Jyn's knowledge. Jyn wants nothing to do with the Rebellion, claiming it has brought her nothing but pain. She's more or less being forced to be on the mission, but hopes to find her father, the engineer behind the Death Star project. She disagrees with the Alliance leadership on her father's culpability in the Death Star's development. Bodhi is an Imperial pilot who has finally mustered the courage to defect (he still hasn't had a chance to lose his Imperial uniform). Having become disillusioned with what the Empire stands for, he mostly just wants to try and make things right. Baze and Chirrut are a couple of former Jedi Temple guards who helped Jyn and Cassian out due to a dislike of what the Empire has done to their home. With the destruction of the Holy City, they basically have nothing left. When they meet Bodhi, their first instinct is to try and kill him as an Imperial soldier, barely stopped by Cassian, who needs Bodhi alive. K-2SO is a reprogrammed Imperial battle droid, who gets on spectacularly poorly with Jyn. He came along because Cassian said he had to.

Nothing Is Scarier
 Rogue One / int_cdfe12c3
comment
Nothing Is Scarier: Jedha has a massive Star Destroyer and several other such ships floating above it, making it clear that the Empire could wipe the city out in moments if they wanted to. However, when Tarkin orders the Death Star be tested on the city the Imperials begin to haul ass and evacuate. It's treated as a quiet, curious occurrence, and while some citizens may be happy the Star Destroyer is leaving, others may wonder why they're suddenly getting the hell out of there. Rebels also established that the Empire will evacuate all Imperial personnel right before a major assault, so in a way, the Star Destroyer and the Imperials suddenly fleeing is scarier than the Death Star actually firing on the planet. At the end of the film, the Rebels are about to board the Tantive IV to get the plans to safety. A door is jammed, and a small squad is trying to pry it open when all of a sudden, the lights in their hallway go out. Everyone suddenly looks up, and looks back to the seemingly endless darkness of the hallway they just came from in clear panic. The camera pans towards the darkness... and then finally, you hear Darth Vader's iconic breathing. In a meta-example, the audience has a very good reason for not hearing of any of the main cast before.

Spiritual Antithesis
 Rogue One / int_ce2969d8
comment
Spiritual Antithesis: The film essentially feels like the thematic opposite of its Immediate Sequel, A New Hope. The all-important MacGuffin, the Death Star plans, are there; the Rebel Alliance is there; the Evil Galactic Empire is there — but instead of a feel-good, Black-and-White Morality film, quite a few of the Rebels are only the "good guys" by virtue of being less evil than the Empire; the Rebel Alliance is in seriously dire straits, our "hero" is a jaded, delinquent Action Girl instead of a naive-but-well-intentioned Farm Boy, and instead of a resounding victory against the Empire with our heroes celebrating, the Alliance barely gets away while suffering heavy losses, and all the major heroes are killed. The great Irony here is that Rogue One is thematically in the spirit of New Hollywood, i.e. the very movement which Star Wars: A New Hope famously helped to bring down by successfully going Lighter and Softer than was normal for the 1970s.

Implausible Deniability: Leia's claim that she was on a diplomatic mission to Alderaan at the start of A New Hope is already pretty iffy, but this movie shows that she and her ship have escaped from the battle over Scarif, literally moments before they will be boarded by Vader, who saw the ship taking off from the battle, with his own eyes, and was quite literally moments away from boarding it himself.

Hoist by His Own Petard: Jyn uses a Stormtrooper's blaster rifle to kill some of his squad members in Jedha City. Tarkin orders the Death Star to be fired on Scarif, killing Krennic with the very weapon he built for the Empire. In turn, by destroying Scarif and killing Krennic, Tarkin doomed the Death Star to its eventual destruction and himself along with it. Without knowing what Jyn stole, they don't know about the flaw or how to correct it even if they did.

Square-Cube Law: Used for an amazing effect in the movie finale, when the downsized Hammerhead is given a specific order by Admiral Raddus. The corvette immediately rams the larger, more fragile bulkheads of the Imperial Star Destroyers and comes out mostly intact. Take note that the Hammerhead is crammed with detailed equipment and has a well-shaped bow with a sturdy connection to its massive stern engine, while the Star Destroyers have very little visible support structures despite how perfectly triangular they are.

Arc Welding: Saw Gerrera's inclusion ties the movie pretty tightly to The Clone Wars. Not only that, but Saw and his sister both fought alongside Ahsoka Tano, who is a major character in both The Clone Wars and Rebels tying the movie to that show as well. Further ties to Rebels come from mention of a General Syndulla and Freeze-Frame Bonus of the Ghost and Chopper. The Death Star's oft-copied and oft-mocked thermal exhaust port that renders an invulnerable battle station completely vulnerable to a single proton torpedo? Galen Erso designed the reactor so it would explode if struck with a single explosive. The novelisation reveals that he also conspired so that the design team would have no choice but to use exhaust ports.

Schrödinger's Canon: When Cassian and his informant are interrupted by stormtroopers, one of the troops asks to "see some scandocs." "Scandoc" was a term used widely in the Star Wars d6 role-playing game. The film also observes false a small but important piece of trivia from the Legends continuity. Imperial-class Star Destroyers were incapable of entering a planets atmosphere, and so had no repulsorlift drives (only useful for pressing against planet's gravity well). Smaller ships, like the Victory-class Star Destroyer, were needed if enemy forces needed to be pursued lower than high orbit. Rogue One shows an Imperial-class Star Destroyer hovering casually over Jedha City.

Composite Character: Each of the Rogue One crew members is either a combination or Expy of the Millennium Falcon crew members. Jyn combines Luke and Leia's dead mother/imperial father origin with Han Solo's "from jaded to converted" story arc. Cassian combine's Han's shoot-first pragmatism with Leia's dedication to the Rebellion. K-2SO combines C-3PO's Britishness and general body shape, Chewbacca's size, and R2's charm and sarcasm. Chirrut shares Obi-Wan's status as the priest warrior in commune with the Force. Baze is basically Chewbacca humanized combined with Han's converted skepticism. Bodhi, like Lando Calrissian, is a pilot atoning for his work with the Empire.

Advancing Wall of Doom
 Rogue One / int_e57198a4
comment
Advancing Wall of Doom: The explosion from the Death Star's laser, at only a fraction of its full power, is enough to create a shockwave capable of peeling back the crust of a planet for kilometers in all directions. To characters on the ground, this appears as, well, a rather extreme example of this trope.

Only a Flesh Wound: Throughout the course of the movie, Krennic is shot, blown up, strangled, and shot again. He goes down after all of them, but is usually back on his feet by the next scene. In the end, it takes a shot to the face from the freakin' Death Star to finish him off.

Humongous Mecha
 Rogue One / int_e6f18344
comment
Humongous Mecha: Imperial walkers make their first movie reappearance in a battle since The Empire Strikes Back from 1980note One appeared in Return of the Jedi on Endor but didn't see combat, and Rey made her home inside the wreckage of one on Jakku in The Force Awakens, playing a pivotal role on Scarif. They're every bit as huge and terrifying than they will be on Hoth, considering the rebels there are entrenched and have at least some weapons capable of damaging the monstrous machines. The only difference being that the Scarif walkers are the cargo variant rather than the combat model; one Scarif walker doesn't even have sides, and none have the heavier chin guns that the walkers seen on Hoth have. On Scarif, however, the rebel fighters opposing them have nothing to give them even a remote chance of bringing the behemoths down on their own: one AT-ACT shrugs off a hit to the cockpit from an anti-tank missile. Then is set upon by X-wings and torn to pieces.

Mildly Military: The Scarif forces evidently haven't had so much as a decent drill in quite a while. Books of this film state that some of the forces on the planet, such as the fleet on the shield station, tried to get themselves ready for an attack, while others sat on their laurels. The main control crew just looks stunned at the start of the rebel attack, until Krennic shouts at them to send out the legion. The stormtroopers set out are only a match to the Rogue One team due to their numbers, and that's negated once rebel air support flies in. It takes the Death Troopers to start wiping out the rebels.

Oddball in the Series
 Rogue One / int_f068cba
comment
Oddball in the Series: The film really is a "Star Wars story", not a typical Star Wars film. The first (live-action) film in the franchise to forgo the Opening Crawl, in part due to the fact that it begins with a Flashback. The film specifically notes locations rather than leaving them up to promotional material, dialogue, and other sources — for example, Yavin IV is labeled as such on-screen rather than being named in dialogue like Mos Eisley or Alderaan were. Invoked, when Cassian stops K-2SO before he can finish saying the usual "I have a bad feeling about this". It is the first main film to not be scored by John Williams, and even though fragments of the classic themes appear in the soundtrack, they're only barely there and don't play out very far.

War Is Hell: A populace mercilessly suppressed by a military regime, civilian cities destroyed, war crimes committed, countless casualties, valiant heroics on both sides that often accomplish little, dead heroes, shellshocked survivors, and all of it for the mere hope of finally getting the upper hand against the enemy — war doesn't get more hellish than that in a movie without jumping to a much higher rating.

Strolling Through the Chaos
 Rogue One / int_f38dccf5
comment
Strolling Through the Chaos: Chirrut walks serenely through the middle of a fierce firefight while chanting his prayer in order to reach the master switch. Even as Stormtroopers actively target him, he is not even grazed by their shots. In a villainous example, Vader is fired upon by a squad of Rebels in a narrow corridor. He simply paces forwards casually batting aside all the fire with his lightsaber before going on the attack. Though if he had actually gone all out right from the start, he might have retrieved the Death Star blueprints.

Dark Reprise: The first trailer starts with a quiet, single piano version of "Binary Sunset", with the villainous "The Imperial March" as a bass accompaniment. The second trailer has a slowed down, foreboding version of Darth Vader's "The Imperial March" theme playing, with a few Triumphant Reprise bars of "Binary Sunset" peeking through.

Psychic Strangle
 Rogue One / int_f41ee3f2
comment
Psychic Strangle: Vader appears, so naturally someone's getting choked. Krennic gets a downplayed version when he's choked but not lifted or killed after Vader tires of his blatant petty ambition; but it also ups the ante from The Empire Strikes Back by establishing that not only does he Vader not need to be in the same room as his target, he doesn't even need to look at his target. As long as he knows where you are, he can Force-choke you. It's played straighter as Vader cuts his way through a bunch of Rebel soldiers. Incidentally, this is the first time that Vader Force-chokes an actual enemy in a Star Wars movie. Every other instance in the movies where the armored Vader Force-chokes someone, that someone is an Imperial.

comment
Together in Death: Jyn and Cassian, embracing each other on the beach as they get engulfed by the explosion caused by the Death Star. Chirrut and Baze die only minutes apart. When Chirrut is mortally wounded from a grenade, Baze starts repeating his catchphrase/prayer to him: "The Force is with me, and I am one with the Force.", until he dies in his arms. He then turns around, taking several enemy troopers down while being shot at until one of the troopers drops a live grenade as he dies. Baze, at this point badly wounded as well, simply lies on the ground as the grenade rolls towards him, stares at Chirrut's body — and the grenade goes off.

Dude, Where's My Respect?
 Rogue One / int_f818b637
comment
Dude, Where's My Respect?: A key part of Krennic's motivation. He spent a sizable portion of his life supervising the largest engineering project in centuries, and when he finally finished, instead of receiving honors and commendations, he gets told that his creation, and with it all glory associated with using it, is going to be turned over to a hated political rival. When complaining to Vader gets him no sympathy, he spends the rest of the film trying to seal the security breach that Tarkin used as grounds to take over control of the Death Star project in the hopes that this will gain him leverage he needs to take it back.

Kaytoo confirms his suspicions when he reveals that Cassian had his rifle in sniper mode before they left.

Evil Is Petty: Krennic in his mistreatment of Galen, including shooting all his assistant scientists for his betrayal. A subtle example with Darth Vader if one considers Obi-Wan's line of "I have the high ground" from their duel on Mustafar. The film shows that Vader has taken up residence in a castle rising several stories above Mustafar's soil. Grand Moff Tarkin is utterly cutthroat, willing to ruin Krennic's life simply for getting in his way on his own climb to the top. The two may have been professional rivals, but it's hard not to get the impression that Tarkin is going out of his way just to rub it in when he gets Krennic fired from the Death Star development team, which up until now has been his own pet project.
