What Is Rogue One?

Star Wars is a broad-strokes kind of series; A New Hope is the fun one, The Empire Strikes Back is the dark one, The Return of the Jedi is the triumphant one and/or the one with all the weird little bears, the three installments in the prequel trilogy are . . . bad. And if The Force Awakens, released one year earlier at the end of 2015, was a welcome, recognizable riff on the old familiar winning Star Wars theme, Rogue One is a fleeting minor-key interlude.’ ~ GQ
