Cassian mentions the "Guardians of the Whills" when speaking with Jyn on Jedha before the attack on the hover-tank. "The Star Wars: From the Journal of the Whills" was the original working title of George Lucas' story. The Whills were wise beings who narrated the Star Wars saga to their pupils, explaining it as having happened "a long time ago in a galaxy far away." This flashback format was ultimately deemed unnecessary and abandoned. There is a popular consensus among fans that the Whills are the species that Yoda belonged to, but this has never been officially confirmed. See more »
After Jyn aligns the antenna, an Imperial fighter begins strafing the catwalk she's on. Jyn runs at least 20 feet away from the tall, vertical control panel at the catwalk's end, but when the catwalk is damaged and she has to climb back onto it, she's back out near the vertical control panel.

I agree with the review that says Rogue One is the end of an era, but for another reason. Honestly, I have watched the original installments and liked them so I was very disappointed with The Force Awakens Episode Seven, but my disappointment here is for another reason. This is the first Star Wars movie with no Jedi, light sabers or any real force. I know the Asian dude keeps saying he has the force, but of course it is a wish on his part. He is not Jedi or padavan and the force does not surge within him. A Star Wars film without force, Jedi or light saber is not really Star Wars is it. Some might say that with what happened in Episode Seven maybe that is a good thing, but I prefer to think there is certain elements that are a must for Star Wars. Also, in case anyone didn't notice the film does not start with a rolling storyboard.
I guess Disney needs the money, but honestly we are the ones giving it to them. I went with my boyfriend and his coworker and none of us really enjoyed it. It was just OK, I guess. At least we went home and had some serious good sex that lasted until after midnight so it was a good Christmas after all lol.
