"Rogue One: a Star Wars Story" is the first standalone Star Wars film. Notably, it is the only Star Wars movie that will not be part of the Anakin Skywalker story and family. The same reason why the movie has its title, "Rogue One."

Gareth Edwards has this thought when he has been asked multiple times about the movie's title. The title can also apply to the star of "Rogue One: a Star Wars Story", Jyn Erso. The latest Star Wars hero has a Rogue streak, being the leader of the rebel team in a mission to steal the plans of the Death Star.

As seen in the official trailer and official poster, Darth Vader will be making an appearance in the movie, although, it is said that he will only have a small role.

"Rogue One: a Star Wars Story" has big potential in providing Star Wars avid fans with the same excitement but different kind of Star Wars experience.

As the actress Felicity Jones put it, the movie is the "boots-on-the-ground" viewpoint and perception of the Star Wars universe.
