If you are one of the people bummed that “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” was missing the franchise’s signature opening crawl, one fan has got your back.
“Rogue One” was the first “Star Wars” film to not feature the opening crawl, a trademark that has made the films instantly recognizable since 1977. But a fan went ahead and made their own.
“The Jedi are all but extinct, the Republic has fallen and in their wake, the Galactic Empire has engulfed the far reaches of the galaxy in fear,” the text reads in the video. “Persecuted members of the Old Republic have been thrust into hiding. Only members of the REBEL ALLIANCE dare take a stand against the ruthless Imperial forces. Deep in the Outer Rim territories, the dastardly Director Krennic has discovered the location of a long lost friend; one capable of completing the Empire’s most powerful weapon yet…”
The blockbuster stars Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed and Donnie Yen. It opened on Dec. 16 and grossed $155 million its opening weekend. It has since earned $357 million worldwide and is expected to take first place at the Christmas box office this weekend, ahead of newcomers “Sing,” “Assassin’s Creed” and “Passengers.”
