The first film ever to divert significantly from Skywalker family drama and its impact on the galaxy far, far away, Rogue One carried the heavy responsibility of telling a great, engaging story and of launching a new style of Star Wars film. With a different look and feel from anything movie going audiences have seen from the franchise, Rogue One told the story of the doomed Rebels that famously stole the plans to the first Death Star and turned the tide of Imperial rule in the galaxy.
The Irregulars also take some time to mourn the passing of one of the greatest and most honest wits to grace the world, Carrie Fisher.
Listen in as Phantom Troublemaker, Chad J. Shonk, Head of Research Ryan Schweck, and the Belligerent Monkey share their opinions of the successes and missteps of this brave, new venture in Star Wars!
