The Death Star fires on Jedha while Jyn Erso reviews a message from her estranged father about how to destroy the Empire’s new weapon.

Our monthly series for 2022 focusing on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story continues. This month, Ryder Waldron from Idiot’s Array joins us as we discuss the Death Star firing on Jedha, Galen Erso’s message to Jyn and what he hoped to accomplish, and some of Ryder’s favorite aspects of Rogue One. As usual with these segments, we are taking a deep dive into twelve minutes of the movie. Thanks for joining us for another episode of our brand of Star Wars coverage on Podcast Stardust.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Chirrut Îmwe’s discovery of Bodhi Rook in a neighboring cell,
  • Galen Erso’s message to Jyn about setting a trap in the reactor of the Death Star,
  • The Death Star firing on Jedha,
  • Cassian Andor, Jyn, Chirrut, Baze, and Bodhi’s escape from Jedha,,
  • General Draven’s reaction to hearing Jedha was destroyed, and
  • Cassian’s argument with Jyn about Galen’s message.
