Rogue One: A Star Wars Story vs. Solo
war of stars Prequels… We can’t get enough of them. That’s because we don’t have a choice: when you watch something war of stars related, chances are it’s some sort of prequel. More than most, this is a franchise that’s very dedicated to showing us the origins of various characters and events years after we’re familiar with them, and as you know, some work better than others. When a new day for the aged war of stars galaxy with the release of The Force Awakens 2015 followed quickly Villain One which depicted the daring mission to steal the plans for the Death Star by members of the Rebel Alliance – these events obviously leading directly to it A new hope.A year and a half later we got solo, a look at a defining period in the life of everyone’s favorite space villain, Han Solo. Opinions on these films still vary wildly, both have their ups and downs, and for better or worse they fill in holes in the overall mythology of the series and are now considered canon.
So…who would prevail in a head-to-head? As mentioned, both films take a look at important events that took place before the iconic original trilogy. Villain One answers questions some fans have had for years: How exactly did the Rebels ever get their hands on the plans for the Death Star — not to mention why the Death Star was equipped with such a vulnerable portal to destroy it, which Luke of course did is Skywalker reached at the end A new hope. It turns out this was thanks to a predictably ragtag group of wayward rebels ultimately led by the cynical Jyn Erso, whose father helped design the Death Star before it defected.
Jyn and her comrades must jump through several dangerous hoops before they can get their hands on the Death Star schematics and send them to the Rebel Alliance, but their victory is bittersweet as the Death Star blows up the planet, they kill them in the process… but not the success of their mission.
solo deals with the maturation of young Han, portrayed as a brash, impulsive daredevil pilot with a heart of gold – so they weren’t exactly rewriting the character’s legacy here. We see that Han’s desire for money and the freedom to do whatever he wants is only surpassed by the sheer romance within him, as his only true goal is to be reunited with his love Qi’ra. Han meets some questionable characters of varying morals, including mercenary Tobias Beckett, a helpful and somewhat familiar Wookiee named Chewbacca, and stylish villain Lando Calrissian. Han becomes involved in a plan to steal a hyperfuel called Coaxium for deadly crime boss Dryden Vos, and ends up helping a small band of rebels take down the crime syndicate, starting his future as a reluctant hero – still determined to fight himself to help if possible.
