In the previous episode of Go Rogue, Jyn Erso. Cassian Andor, K-2SO, Chirrut Îmwe, and Baze Malbus proved to be a formidable team as they managed to get away with one half of the Death Star plans. But getting the second half won’t be easy. This episode introduced Pao, one of the Rebels’ non-human members. It also proved that AT-ACT just doesn’t roll off the tongue very well. Although we do like the idea of controlling the Imperial Walkers by using an app.
This installment also has some meta fun with the recasting of Director Orson Krennic, who is now portrayed by his standard action figure instead of his Funko figure with the ridiculously huge head. Cassian and K-2SO had some fun comedic moments, even though things looked grim for one of them by the end of the episode. And what Star Wars fan film would be complete without a THX-1138 shout out?
Remember, this is the third part of a four-part adventure. The remaining installment will be released later this month before the first round of Rogue One toys hit the shelves on September 30. Also on the 30th, fans can submit their own original Rogue One shorts at StarWars.com/GoRogue; while children ages 8 through 12 will have their own category of shorts at Disney.com/MyRogueStory. The shorts will be judged by a panel including Rogue One director Gareth Edwards, and the winners will be invited to a special Lucasfilm screening in San Francisco to watch Rogue One and their animated shorts on the big screen.
