Rogue One was an unmatched experience for the fans of Star Wars because the film focused on the characters which had got only slight mention in the main film. The Rogue One ended at the time when the first film’s events begun to unfold, however, as per the newly published book Star Wars: From A Certain Point of View, there is only one hour of time gap between the ending of Rogue One and the starting of Star Wars.
The Rogue One ended when Princess Leia on board the Tantive IV got the plans for the Death Star, and then the ship escaped from Darth Vader. The ship initially was docked with Profundity as an earlier mission had left it in a terrible shape which necessitated extensive repairs to its defenses as well as armaments apart from the hyperdrive.
Being fully aware of the risks facing them, the Tantive IV crew somehow managed to escape with those plans and aimed to get to Tatooine. As per the book, they had spent only an hour on the ship’s repairs before the arrival of the Devastator, and that’s when the original Star Wars started.
The book From A Certain Point of View has a collection of 40 tales each based on the perspectives of 40 different support characters of the original movie. The story about Tantive IV is focused on Raymus Antilles who captained the ship.
The book explores several unexplained aspects of the film related to Yoda, Boba Fett, and even the MosEisley Cantina bartender Wuher.
A startling revelation in the book is about Yoda being contacted by the spirit of Obi-Wan regarding the training of the “Chosen One.” The iconic Jedi Master was stunned when Kenobi mentioned Luke as being the one that should be trained because Yoda felt that he would train Leia and restore balance to the Force.
