I’d suggest you watch it. It’s a really cool side of Star Wars we don’t usually see outside of the TV shows, and plays it safe whe. It comes to controversy. If you’re expecting a game changer, you’ll be disappointed, but if you’re expecting a bad movie, you’ll be even more disappointed. It’s enjoyable, but it won’t be the greatest thing you’ve ever seen.
Well, in-universe, the Empire’s underestimation of the Rebellion led to its downfall, and the New Republic’s underestimation of the First Order led to its. The First Order remains to be essentially a radical political party that literally wiped out the government because no one paid attention to them. The Resistance used to be little more than a group of people who saw the First Order as a threat, and now are small pockets of rebels scatt red across the galaxy. I don’t even know if the First Order is really in control yet, but they’re on their way for sure. Things look bleaker for the Resistance right now than the Rebellion ever did after New Hope.
Hey, an oxymoron!
To be honest, I love Star Wars. It was a huge part of my childhood, and it’s something you have a 50/50 shot of connecting to someone with. It’s controversial, sure, it’s lost its hope, sure, it’s lost it’s freedom, sure. But it hasn’t lost me. Rogue One currently ranks top out of all Star Wars movies for me, and Solo proved to be cool and fun, and therefore I’m just here, waiting for more anthology movies. The saga hasn’t lost my anticipation, but they did lose my preference. I just hope Lucasfilm doesn’t let us down.
