Podcast Stardust #312: Rogue One, Part 9 – The Assault Begins

by Podcast Stardust

The Rebels begin their assault on Scarif as Jyn, Cassian, and K-2SO infiltrate the tower to retrieve the Death Star Plans as Director Krennic arrives.

Podcast Stardust’s year long look at Rogue One: A Star Wars Story continues in this episode. Jyn Erso has defied the will of the Rebel Council and has lead a small team to infiltrate Scarif and steal the plans to the Death Star. Meanwhile, Director Krennic is determined to get to the bottom of Galen Erso’s messages and what exactly the Rebellion knows. Therefore, he has arrived on Scarif to conduct his investigation. Jyn, Cassian Andor, and K-2SO make their way inside the tower and are heading for the vault when the rest of the Rebels launch their assault. The battle is on!
