The latest Science Fiction film in the Star Wars franchise, Rogue One Is also out on DVD soon. It features An Imperial technician named Galen Erso who has a crisis of concience and flees the evil Empire with his family Jyn and Lyra to the the remote planet Lahmu. Sadly though the Empire eventually locate him, catch up with him and take him prisoner and send his daughter Jyn to Wobani Labour Camp. However She is rescued by Guerrilla leader and Rebel extremist Saw Gerrera who teaches her to become a fighter with his militia as well as a smuggler and criminal.
However Jyn is abandoned by Gerrera, luckily she is rescued by a Rebel named Ruescott Melshi and taken to the rebel base where she meets Mon Mothma and Cassian Andor. Meanwhile an Imperial Pilot Defector named Bodhi Rook is being held by Saw Gerrera at the holy city of Jedha having been sent by Galen Erso to warn the rebels that the Empire is constructing a new super weapon of unimaginable power which has been given the name Death Star and which is capable of destroying whole planets.
So The Rebels send Jyn Erso and rebel pilot Cassian Andor to Jedha where they encounter two Mystic Warriors Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus battling the Imperial Invaders. They also encounter Saw Gerrera who is also waging his own guerrilla warfare on the Empire and are imprisoned in his secret base on Jedha. However They are unexpectedly freed when unbeknownst to them, the Empire led by Grand Moff Tarkin and Scientist Orson Krennic decide to demonstrate the Death Star’s destructive capacity on Jedha. Cassian, Jyn, Bodhi Rook, Chirrut Imwe and Baze only just manage to escape the subsequent carnage.
They are then sent to an Imperial Research Facility on the windswept, inhospitable planet Eadu on a mission to find and extract Galen Erso, however unbeknownst to Jyn, Cassian is also secretly given orders by the rebels to assassinate Galen Erso instead. Then the rest of the rebels arrive and it all kicks off. Whilst on Eadu Jyn, Cassian, Bodhi Rook, Chirut Imwe and Baze Malbus discover that the technical blueprints for the Empire’s superweapon are being stored in another Imperial Facility on the planet Scarif. So after reasoning that stealth is required rather than a full scale attack, they set off, unbeknownst to the Rebels, on an unsanctioned and very dangerous mission to Scarif to recover the technical blueprints for the Death Star which they may or may not survive.
