With Chuck Wendig’s Empire’s End arriving this month, I decided to review Aftermath and Aftermath: Life Debt. After my first read, I found these post-Return of the Jedi stories entertaining and engaging. For one, getting some details on how the galaxy evolved after the death of the Emperor and Darth Vader was fascinating. The new canon provides little description of this era. Therefore, I was trying to read these stories just a little closer this time around. One of the things I paid extra attention to was the character of Sinjir Rath Velus, the former Imperial loyalty officer. One aspect of Sinjir’s character struck me: he was willing to do bad for the greater good. This reminded me of Cassian Andor, who confessed to Jyn Erso that he had done terrible things on behalf of the Rebellion. This raises the question, where does the Rebellion draw the line?
The Star Wars community tends to boil things down to a lowest common denominator. While we all have Wookieepedia bookmarked and a vast knowledge TIE fighter models, we find the conversations being whittled down to likes or dislikes, goods or bads. We polarize our conversations instead of finding deeper levels of understanding through true understanding, dialog and compassion. If you think I’m nuts, have you ever persuaded someone with your theory about who Snoke is? When talking to someone with an opinion on midichlorians, have you changed your mind? There is a call to something greater, though.
No one thinks of “quiet” and “calm” when they think of Star Wars. No one. From the very first blast of the iconic John Williams’ score at the beginning of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, to the fantastic ships, weapons, thundering confrontations and larger than life characters, it’s a loud saga. Big. Booming. Atlas holding the sphere of the world and tossing it around like a ping-pong ball. But it has occurred to me recently, after my most recent viewing of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, that it is in simple, quiet moments and the characters who define them that I find the most power, more than any other Star Wars film.

The sound quality is superb, as is the sculpt; they are sure to please even the most discerning of consumers. We are proud to have them as an affiliate at Coffee With Kenobi. Let’s take a closer look at two of the three options: the C-3PO speaker, and the Darth Vader speaker.
During my first viewing of Rogue One I noticed that there some obvious connections and tie-ins with Return of the Jedi. For example, in both movies there are Mons (Mothma and Calamari), shield generators that need to be destroyed, Death Stars that become operational, and stolen Imperial ships and codes that the rebels use to infiltrate an Imperial stronghold. But after multiple viewings it is clear that there are even more similarities, connections, and juxtapositions between Rogue One and Return of the Jedi.
**SPOILERS** for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
The release of Rogue One has the world buzzing. The first ever live-action standalone Star Wars film has proved to be a hit. While the film doesn’t tie directly to the Skywalker Story that permeates the main saga films, it isn’t without some connections to those films. Most notably being Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin. With the film’s obvious lead up to A New Hope it makes logical sense for these two baddies to have appeared. What Rogue One is able to accomplish, beyond giving us an impactful story about hope, is it fundamentally changes the way we now look at Darth Vader and Tarkin in A New Hope. Spoiler alert: I like it.
