This is not just an action movie. There are plenty of scenes with drama and suspense, and there is a lot more going on under the surface than just laser blasts and dogfights in space. The Star Wars universe has always been built around really interesting characters that have deep emotional arcs, with conflicts between duty and conscience woven into both the narrative arc as well as in individual scenes. There are also some surprisingly complex thoughts about war and its consequences that lie beneath this film’s thrilling surface layer. The story is set in motion by the need to retrieve the schematics for the Death Star, a weapon of such devastating power that it could leave no planet in the galaxy truly safe from complete destruction. The rebels are in dire need of this information, but without it they have little chance of success, so Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) is sent as a spy to retrieve it on behalf of the Rebel Alliance. He brings along his reprogrammed Imperial droid K-2SO (voiced by Alan Tudyk), who is boisterous and sarcastic, and knows that he will never be allowed to leave if he is captured once again.
