Three months after its release in theaters, it was only last night that I was able to watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
I've been a fan of Star Wars since I was 10 or something because I used to watch the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but I never really dug deep into its whole universe until this year. Star Wars is indeed loved by different generations, and now that I am in the verge of becoming an adult, the cinematic universe has become more appealing to me and started to realize that the animated series I used to love is just one bit of the whole story.
I cried so much last night cuz imma fooking EMO.
Rogue One just hit me really hard, especially upon understanding what the title means.. and to think that the whole story of Rogue One is just one minute detail, but integral part that establishes the whole Star Wars universe.
Words can be underestimating, but I'm trying to express as accurate as I can.
Rogue One was a sacrifice in order for Luke Skywalker to succeed in destroying the Death Star in Episode IV: A New Hope. The detail about destroying the Death Star was a flaw in the original trilogy (like, how did Princess Leia even got the plans about the Death Star?), but Rogue One became the explanation. The characters; everyone in Rogue One.. They all died... for hope.. AS HOPE.
"A New Hope" ... based on the original trilogy, the 'new hope' can refer to Luke Skywalker, but the last line in the Rogue One as uttered by the cameo Princess Leia.. "Hope." Episode IV's title can mean two things now. The 'new hope' can be the Death Star plans that Rogue One has sacrificed for. Rogue One was after all, the dawn for A New Hope.
I cannot write anymore. My words are just spilling everywhere. SIGH. Any hardcore Star Wars fan would understand.
