Another overrated SW movie.

It's before IV and tells the story of how the Rebel Alliance got the plans to the Death Star.

 
Meh, boring.

 


It would help if the story hadn't been told half a dozen or so times already, and one version may still be canon thanks to George's direct involvement in the writing. Probably more sensible than the rumoured Obi Wan movie though even though Ewan McGregor's performance in the prequels was as good as could realistically be expected.

 

We won't even get to see many Bothans dying to get the plans since that was DS2.

That will be the sequel Star Wars: Many Bothans Died.

Which one is Kyle Katarn?

 

Or does he no longer exist?

Looks promising. George should have expanded out on the Star Wars movies besides sticking with the usual crew.

i think he may make an appearance... doesn't the name (and looks) of the mc of Rogue One ring a bell?

according to the game Dark Forces, Kyle (imperial officer at the time) is the one who handed the Death Star plans to the rebel agent who then passed them to Leia.

does it? the mc of rogue one is called Jan Ors and....

Prior to the events of Dark Forces, Katarn was a student studying to follow in his father's career of agricultural mechanics. However, while at an academy, he was told by officials that the Rebel Alliance had killed his parents. His anger led him to enlist in the Imperial army, where he soon met Jan Ors, an undercover double agent working for the Alliance. Ors uncovered the real information about Katarn's parents; they had actually been killed by the Empire. Shortly thereafter, Ors' cover was blown, and she was taken prisoner. Katarn helped her escape, thus ending his career with the Empire. He then became a mercenary, and due to his hatred for the Empire, regularly took on jobs for the Alliance.

In the first level of Dark Forces, which is set prior to A New Hope, Katarn recovers the plans to the Death Star

i think the movie will be about how Jan became a spy, how she met Katarn and how the 2 of them got out with the plans of the Death Star

I'm sure the writers have all of this stuff available to them, and if it makes sense with the script they may even work it in.  However I wouldn't expect anything.  Sure, they might make a nice Easter egg for a few thousand fans, but a huge percentage of their audience is not going to get any of this.

i just had a revelation!!!

the mc of Rogue One is Jan Ors; if that results in Kyle Katarn becoming canon again... could it be possible that it's Rei Katarn?

Ok. In your post you had Katarn as a defector not a merc. Or so it seemed.

Katarn was in the imperial army until Jan found out and told him that the empire killed his parents, then he abandoned the empire but didn't want to commit to the rebellion so he became a mercenary who often took jobs for the rebels.

Disney is going to milk this cow beyond undeath

 

A large part of me hopes they push it so far that the franchise finally busts

Overall, that's not possible. At least for a few decades.

 

It already has busted for a lot of people, myself included (for me, the series ended with dancing Ewoks, and Luke looking over to a smiling Obi-Wan, Yoda, and an old Anakin on Endor). But there's no shortage of fanbois and gals out there who will slobber up anything and everything Star Wars. It's a franchise that arguably has the largest fan base in the world. Busting the franchise for all those people would be hard to do even if you tried.

The profit margin may go down (I'd wager a lot it will) from J.J. Abrams movie, but it will still be there for a very long time to come.

Huh?

92% aggregate critic and 89% audience ratings on Rotten Tomatoes.

http://www.rottentom..._force_awakens/

And it made over $2 billion at the box office. I don't know what reality you guys live in, but by most sane standards, JJ. Abrams helmed a resounding success.

I don't know what it is that makes people so enamored with Star Wars thirty years after its release. Granted they were fun films, but for a grown man to be a "fan", wear a shirt with a stormtrooper on it etc. in 2016 is downright embarrassing. Its like someone saying their favorite films are Snow White and their favorite film character is Grumpy. Sure, everyone can admire a nice fairy tale... but they're made for children, not adults. Hell, even George Lucas said so, many times, and you can see on his face that even he doesn't understand the idiotic fan obsession with the films (or regard them as highly as they do) - but the show just keeps on lurching on 20+ years past its prime.

Huge multi-media franchise that hundreds of millions of people enjoyed and made boatloads of money for those involved. What's your point?

Bunch of sour grapes in here. Feel free to realize you will not like this movie if you didn't like ep. 7 and find more productive things to do with your time. I will be busy enjoying the heck out of the new films. :)
