'Rogue One' Fans Insider: 8 Reasons Why Star Wars Spin-Off Is More Popular Than 'The Force Awakens'
Straight fact talking, it is thinkable to appreciate both Star Wars: The Force Awakens and spin-off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The original sequel was a lot of fun with its pleasant, unforgettable characters and a bucket of load polished and an intense film on its own. Mostly, each title is easily to be publicized on and that's good.
But when it recently come out in cinemas, it's difficult not to pay attention to social media and witness the awesomely positive reaction audiences seem to be having after seeing Rogue One.
1. Huge Players Diversity
Representation is vital when it comes to these popular blockbuster movies and while The Force Awakens might have been led by a female actresses and black actors, Rogue One really took it to the next level in terms of diversity. Director Gareth Edwards and all its cast and crews have been making a strong statement, if you notice all are in different races.
2. Opening Prologue Originality
When faithful fans first heard that Rogue One was going to air an introductory prologue instead of some simple teaser, they were justifiably uncertain but it ended up being attractive. It provided some thought-provoking backstory between hero Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and villain Imperial director Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn) as well as her family too.
3. Droid Battle Between K-2SO and BB-8, K-2SO Nailed It
The Force Awakens' droid BB-8 was cute and who would forget that flame thumbs-up? But Rogue One's K-2SO, voiced by Alan Tudyk, was one of the best film's stand-outs. The talking, reprogrammed Imperial droid was the film's major comic break and he nailed every line. He's badass too... the way he catches that grenade in mid-air, mid-conversation and throws it without flashing.
4. Definitely New Storyline
First, Rogue One doesn't step on familiar territory... Like the chapter 'A New Hope,' and 'Return Of The Jedi,' Rogue One's movie act contains of a grand-scale battle where almost suicidal for the actors who carry out mission against the empire. But with Rogue One, viewers maybe understand doubt for the first time across the series, guessing who might make it out alive.
5. Familiar Foes And Faces
Seen on multiple posted trailers, it was evident that Galactic Senator Mon Mothma and Darth Vader were going on screen in Rogue One. It was also rumored that A New Hope character, the Empire's WIlhuff Tarkin, was going to show up too... which he did, as a computer-generated picture of late actor Peter Cushing. His inclusion in the story felt wholly natural given Tarkin's close linking with the Death Star.
6. First Time, No Lightsaber Duels
Isn't it boring but while lightsaber duels can be impressive, they usually take in two, or sometimes three, people only. Without lightsaber in sight for almost entire movie, Edwards and cinematographer Greig Fraser could play about with more war battle sequences and they pay close attention to details.
7. Its Brave Ending
The Force Awakens will be having at least two more sequels; and because of that, the film ended with more unanswered questions than revelations. Rogue One was all about exposures and eventually makes for one hell of a sustaining final act.
8. New Screenplay With Dark Vader
In Rogue One, fans in conclusion saw the Sith Lord demonstrate the full extent of his capabilities. In the scene, Vader's iconic heavy breathing is heard from an concealed corner of the ship, while rebels panicking in aiming their blasters into the darkness. With background music, Vader's signature red saber lights up, figure-hugging composure and threatening black figure before he storms onward using the Force and his weapon to take the whole world down.
