I just recently watched Rogue One after not having seen it for quite some time and it. Was. AMAZING!!!! My focus has been on The Last Jedi for the past few weeks and for a little while I thought The Last Jedi was the best Star Wars movie ever made but the more I watch it the more flaws I’ve seen and it’s slightly began to deteriorate in quality. Rogue One has not gotten less enjoyable over the years, in fact, it’s only gotten better and it’s hands down the best Star Wars movie, in my opinion. The whole movie, from beginning to end, is absolutely incredible and I’m just so glad it exists in the Star Wars universe. But as I watched it the last time I realized something that I hadn’t really noticed before and that is the fascinating stories of Cassian and Bodhi throughout the film.
Jyn is the face of Rogue One. She is what the whole movie is wrapped around and she’s the central character to the story but, when you really look at the film, she’s not the hero of the movie. She’s one of the heroes who helped begin a destructive chain in defeating the Empire but the rebels didn’t succeed in getting the Death Star plans because of her exactly. It was the heroic acts of Cassian Andor and Bodhi Rook who made that possible. And so, in this post, I’m going to relay to you why they are the true heroes of Rogue One.
