Spinning off from the main story and slotting in between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and the original movie A New Hope, Star Wars: Rogue One is released this week. After last year’s smash The Force Awakens, Disney’s hopes are riding high again on the franchise and with stores already full of merchandise – this year not omitting the female protagonist – there’s no doubt cinemas will be packed opening weekend. Felicity Jones stars as Jyn Erso who must steal the plans to the Em-pires new Death Star for the Rebel Alliance. Billed as a slight reverse to the original, following a girl who grows up surrounded by war and dreaming of a peaceful life, Rogue One takes the approach of a more traditional war movie but set in a galaxy far far away.
