The Film Style
The style of the film will be similar to that of a ‘war film’. As the Director of ‘Rogue One’, Gareth Edwards stating, “It’s the reality of war. Good guys are bad. Bad guys are good. It’s complicated, layered, a very rich scenario in which to set a movie.”.
Maybe we will be less seeing Jedi knights in this film. As we were known that in the third installment of the Star Wars Saga, most of the Jedi were annihilated by Galactic Empire.
Revival of Death Vader
Seems like most of the Star Wars fans are so hyped for the reappearance of Darth Vader. James Earl Jones will return to his role as the voice of Darth Vader in the film. His role in this film probably will be according to after the Clone Wars events. In the events, Darth Vader is tracking down and killing any remaining Jedi and Force-sensitive child.
Death Star Threats
We all know that Death Star is one of the primary weapon for Galactic Empire. In this film, we will watch Krennic staked his reputation in order to complete the long-delayed Death Star project. Yes, Death Star is a thing. Remember on the previous film, The Force Awaken? Where it can blow a planet with a single blast, of course, the size is bigger than the original Death Star. Therefore, stopping the creation of Death Star is a must for Rebel Alliance to keep them survive and ‘Rogue One’ will explain it all in the incoming film.
