Podcast Stardust #204: Rogue One – Part One – Not a Saga Movie

by Podcast Stardust

We begin our year-long series examining the first anthology movie: Rogue One. We start with the opening scene on Lah’mu and the differences from the saga.

2016 saw the release of the first non-saga Star Wars movie of the Disney era. Rogue One premiered in December of that year and brought to life the story from the opening crawl of A New Hope. On this episode, we begin a monthly series that will examine Rogue One by dissecting ten to twelve minute segments of the movie as we head towards the fifth anniversary of the film. Tom Gross from Coffee with Kenobi joins us as we get the series started.

On this fully armed and operational episode, Tom Gross from Coffee With Kenobi joins us, and we discuss:

  • The lack of an opening crawl to the movie,
  • The difference in Michael Giacchino’s score compared to John William’s work,
  • Director Krennic confronting Galen Erson,
  • Lyra Erso’s goodbye to Jyn and the Kyber crystal,
  • Secrets of Krennic’s shuttle, and
  • Details about the Death Troopers.

Thanks for joining us for another episode. Please subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts and spread the word to all of your Star Wars friends. May the Force be with you!
