Disney recently released its latest Lego Star Wars recap with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, retelling the two-hour film in about two minutes. Guess that didn’t leave a lot of room for the ending — where, you know…
… everybody dies.
“Hooray, we’re all about to be blown up!”
The video was released to celebrate Rogue One‘s home release, — as well as to sell toys because obviously, that’s an end-game here. Surprisingly, the clip does a decent job condensing the movie into a bite-sized nugget of information (I especially loved Krennic’s whiny-little-shit voice). But, it concludes with Jyn Erso and Cassian high-fiving after uncovering the Death Star plans in Dad’s briefcase. Umm… a few things happen after that.
Of course, they’re not going to want to emotionally destroy a bunch of kids by ending a Lego video with destroying the entire planet. I just find the whole thing funny, in a demonic, twisted, “watching your best friend watch the Red Wedding” kind of way. If any kids haven’t seen Rogue One yet, boy are they in for a surprise.
