Star Wars, “From A Certain Point Of View”

The Force In Rogue One: A Stealth Presence

Much has been made of how the story threads and protagonists of Rogue One A Star Wars Story exist and strive to win against the Imperial horde in a world without Jedi, without The Force. A concept, a religion, already slipping into distant memory. Yet The Force subtly weaves its way throughout heroine Jyn Erso’s […]
