When I purchased my ticket to Rogue One I thought I was about to watch a movie that wouldn’t quite reach regular Star Wars movie level, but would at least be an entertaining sci-fi movie.
After the movie was over, I found myself amazed at all parts of Rogue One and thrilled that I would no longer need to watch Star Wars Episodes I-III when viewing the Star Wars saga, because Rogue One was a perfect prequel to Star Wars Episode IV. There will be no more Jar Jar Binks or emo Anakin Skywalker in my life. The memories of those characters in the George Lucas prequels are dead to me after watching Rogue One.
My new Star Wars viewing order:
- Rogue One
- Episode IV – A New Hope
- Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back
- Episode VI – Return of the Jedi
- Episode VII – The Force Awakens
- Episode VIII (maybe, if it’s any good)
- Episode IX (same as Episode VIII)
What were your Rogue One thoughts?
