PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
The daughter of an Imperial scientist joins the Rebel Alliance in a risky move to steal the Death Star plans.
This is the 3rd "Star Wars" movie in which the Emperor does not appear. Emperor Palpatine is not seen in Episode IV - A New Hope, merely mentioned. He is also not seen in The Force Awakens.
Lyra Erso: We know.
Galen Erso: Jyn, gather your things. It's time.
In the opening sequence, the Imperial shuttle is flying to Galen's farm to take him back to the Empire, and can be seen flying over Jyn's head as she runs back to the farm to warn her parents. The shuttle knows where Galen lives and presumably flies in a straight line, yet arrives well after Jyn arrives, leaving Jyn plenty of time to talk to her father and be hidden in the cave by her mother.
After the credits are done, there is a snippet of Luke Skywalker's theme.
