Newest to the prequel era of the Star Wars saga. Gareth Edwards of Godzilla (2013) shows us the stark cold galaxy ruled by the rising empire helmed by Lord Sidious and Darth Vader as seen since 2005's Revenge of the Sith. Jyn Erso is a rebel prisoner who joins a resistance against the empire and decides to recruit a rebel team to find the plans of the ultimate star destroyer, the Death Star helped built by her father and a manic director of the Death Star, Orsson Krenic. Their mission find the plans and use it's weakness to save the galaxy and end the empire forever. This is one of the flaws introduced in the original trilogy of how weak the Death Star was to destroy which now was fixed due to Rogue One's essential plot twist. While its visually a good film, the first two acts are it's weakest and probably most uninteresting part of the film. . There are elements introduced which are strong and powerful but utilised by very empty characters. Edwards does improve as the narrative progresses and the final act is incredible. As a Star Wars fanatic the film has some beautiful nods to the extended material and its original incarnations. Rogue One is not a perfect film, it has plenty flaws but its a good time to add to the franchise and gets a 7/10 #starwars#phantommenace#prequels#georgelucas#jjabrams#obiwankenobi#ewanmcgregor#haydenchristensen#anakinskywalker#jarjarbinks#disney#films#critic#moviereviewer#movies#lovemovies#films#filmfan#scifi#discussion#podcast#starwarsfan#stormtroopers#rogueone#deathstar
This was a remote, tropical planet in the Abrion sector of the Outer Rim Territories. Although a small and idyllic world, Scarif played an important part in the Galactic Empire, becoming a center for top-secret research. Among the projects developed here was the Death Star battle station, a construction so important the entire planet was covered by a planetary deflector shield that could only be entered via a Shield Gate.
The Galactic Empire constructed its Imperial security complex across a wheel of islets and landmasses connected by sandy tombolos and artificial transit tubes. The region was surrounded by volcanic island covered in jungles, and the central islet housed the monolithic Citadel Tower.
Although Scarif's planetary mantle was filled with dense metals valuable in starship construction, its remote location deep within the Outer Rim Territories meant that supplying shipyards of the Core Worlds proved too costly. However, the Galactic Empire saw Scarif as a potential place to house their most classified projects away from the Imperial Senate. To this end, the Empire built a major security complex on the planet's northern hemisphere. A high-altitude Shield Gate station allowed entry past the planetary deflector shield, which itself was protected by several Imperial Star Destroyers. Scarif became the principal construction facility for the Empire's vast war machine.
The Battle of Scarif was a battle between the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire, taking place in the year 0 BBY. The Rebels had received information from Jyn Erso that the Death Star plans were being held in the Citadel Tower, and decided to make an attempt to capture them. Their attempt was successful, and they managed to transmit the plans to Princess Leia Organa. However, Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin ordered the Death Star to fire a precise single reactor blast at the planet, not destroying Scarif itself but dissipating its planetary shield and obliterating the Citadel Tower as well as everyone in its vicinity in an unsuccessful effort to halt the transmission.
