'Rogue One' Album Review - The "Williams Way"

By Ciaran Duggan,


Rogue One: A Star Wars Story represents a new path for the Star Wars movie franchise. This film is different from any Star Wars film that came before it, which has been attributed to a number of different factors.

Firstly, it is the first Star Wars stand-alone film of the franchise, no longer focused on mere episodic content which is centered around the Skywalker family.

Secondly, a fundamental element of previous Star Wars films has altered, the music. The music, which is sometimes referred to as the oxygen of Star Wars, has been composed by legendary musician John Williams in every film prior.

ROGUE ONE SPOILER ALERT!

One of the elements that makes Rogue One: A Star Wars Story so unique is that ever principle character dies.  Given the weight of what they were doing and the stakes of their mission, it makes sense that the crew of Rogue One would have to make the ultimate sacrifice.  You might think that this was something the filmmakers and the studio would fight over.  That Disney would want at least some of the characters to survive to set up sequels and spin offs, or at least to make the ending less distressing for audiences.

ROGUE ONE SPOILER ALERT!

One of the most surprising aspects of Rogue One was the return of two iconic characters from the original trilogy, one played by an actor who's dead and the other played by actor who is now 40 years older.  While Leia only had one scene, Tarkin was present throughout the film.  Tarkin's role in the film was far larger than anyone expected and was a groundbreaking accomplishment by the visual effects crew on the film.  But it was one that made director Gareth Edwards nervous when the idea was first approached.
