You read the title of this article, so you know what this will be about. Before I get to that, let me get some things out of the way. Rogue One is a beautifully-shot film, using light and scene composition not seen before in Star Wars. George Lucas and the other 2 directors that did the first 6 films focused on telling a story, and, for the most part, did so with little care for ostentatious visual flare, and while Abrams was content to play in the box his predecessors created, Gareth Edwards instead brings a masterfully-crafted visual aesthetic to the film franchise never before seen. If you enjoyed the visually stunning 2014 Godzilla, you’ll likely enjoy the cinematography here too since Edwards re-uses many of his shooting techniques here as well.
