YOU DON’T NEED THE FORCE TO HELP TAKE DOWN THE EMPIRE.
Everybody knows being a Jedi is the coolest job ever. You get to travel all over the galaxy, you can move objects — and control people — with your mind, and, oh yeah, you get a lightsaber. The Jedi are the defenders of justice across the entire universe, but even they can’t fight an Empire on their own. In Rogue One, we were exposed to a uniquely different Star Wars film — not one Jedi so much as makes a cameo (there’s a Sith Lord, but no Jedi). Even without the help of a Force-wielder, the crew of Rogue One manages to storm Scarif and get the Death Star plans into the hands of the Rebel Alliance, thus kickstarting a sequence of events that leads to the downfall of the Empire. And they did so without the help of a single lightsaber.
