Rogue One: Bail Organa – A Moment of Reflection

By now, there has been so much coverage in ways of analysis on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Honestly, what’s left to talk about? The media, from news-sites to fan-sites, and every corner of the internet has turned this first Star Wars standalone film inside-out, and dissected it from every angle possible. But here, at Coffee with Kenobi, we do our best (by tradition) to take a closer look at even the tiniest of details, through what’s been noted as a critical lens. We do this in hopes to shine some light on possible new perspectives and ideas. Hopefully, I’ll be somewhat successful with what I’m bringing to the table today.

Rogue One: Quiet, Calm, Powerful

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.

New Star Wars Novels to Explore Rogue One Backstories



Jyn Erso, Chirrut Îmwe, and Baze Malbus. Vastly different people who came together, along with some other new friends, to change the galaxy. After their heroics in Rogue One, they’ve become fan favorites — and we’re going to learn a lot more about them in two new books coming May 2.

Rebel Rising , a young adult novel from New York Times Bestselling author Beth Davis, will dive into Jyn’s backstory, exploring her time with the extremist rebel Saw Gerrera and how it shaped the woman she’d become. Rogue One hinted at the once-close relationship between Saw and Jyn, which was ultimately fractured. Rebel Rising  promises to be our first real look into what happened between the two, good times and bad. Check out the official description and cover below.

Star Wars Moms: The Strongest Stars have Hearts of Kyber

“The strongest stars have hearts of Kyber.” — Chirrut Imwe

There’s something to be said about this quote or dialogue spoken by the Guardian of the Whills, Chirrut Imwe. It’s amazing what one line can do and how it can trigger a plethora of thoughts; not much different from saying a picture is worth a thousand words. These words unleashed a multitude of emotions on me, and I can’t help myself from going back to it.

Rogue One and Return of the Jedi

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.

Melinda’s Brew: Family Affair

Melinda's Brew

Two weeks to the day after seeing it ourselves, my husband, Tom, and I finally got to see “Rogue One” with our two daughters who came home for the holidays. Neither one of them had seen the newest chapter in Star Wars lore as of yet, and Tom and I were waiting with bated breath for them to see it – especially this past week since the two of us could not talk about the movie at all if there was even the smidgeon of a possibility that either of the girls were within ear shot [our ‘eagle-eared’ daughters can hear just about anything from any corner of the house, we learned long, long ago]. Best to err on the side of caution, and not say one word. In all fairness to the girls, Tom and I each were ‘allowed’ to utter one word in regard to “Rogue One” – we could answer “yes” or “no” to the query, “Did you like it?” after seeing it opening night [December 15]. We embellished our answers by giving a thumb’s up signal. They allowed that. 😉
