...looks not too bad at all.
I kept thinking "swim as far as you can, swim as far as you can".

Indeed. Me and the boy were very excited this afternoon.

Am I missing something here? The main character has to get the plans for the deathstar? Is that not the same as the very first star wars? The only difference is that the first one didn't show how they physically got the plans. How many groups of rebels tried to nick these plans? Did the rebels sub contract this out to different people?

I understand it is meant to fill in what happened just before the start of the first star wars film.

Yes you are missing something. The recovery of the plans is no part of the first star wars. Leia has the plans on the Tantive IV. How did she get them?

Huge great big fuck off AT-Ats and Felicity Jones beating people up. Excellent!

The dialogue is a bit ripe but you know.

Just seeing the At-Ats gave me a wee star wars semi

Just expecting something a bit more original somehow, some way.

No. The main character does not have to get the plans for the Death Star in the first film.

The only difference? Can you list the similarities for me, other than similar characters, which is like looking at two World War II films and moaning they both have soldiers in them.

Am I missing something here? The main character has to run the Mafia? Is that not the same as the very first Godfather? The only difference is that the first one didn't show how they physically got to be Godfather.

1. He has to get them to the rebels, same difference.
2. See point 1, The only difference is the phyiscal getting of said plans.

Splitting hairs to be honest, but like i said was expecting something more original, some how, some way.

Will the new characters look cool when made into dollies and left in their box next to the lego, er At-Ats ?

The point of this is to show how the rebels got the plans before Star Wars (1977) took place.

One thing I don't get is when they're reprimanding her they list off a bunch of her offences and the first is forging Imperial documents. Perhaps there's something untold going on but why would they care about a rogue without sides forging enemy stuff?

What kind of route were you thinking?

The trailer certainly took me by surprise. No John Williams fanfare, a very dark tone, a cliched alarm noise repeating itself to different images of war. It's very different compared to the trailers of The Force Awakens which promote it as an old fashioned fun space opera.

I don't know, give me the money the writer/writers are getting and I'll think one up.

That was Return of the Jedi. This is to do with Death Star I.
