The reborn Star Wars movie universe continues in exhilarating fashion with this adventure that gives the main Luke/Leia narrative a swerve and feels all the better for it. While 2015's The Force Awakens got somewhat bogged down in rehashing old Star Wars plots and bringing back old cast members, Rogue One always feels fresh and is populated by (mostly) new characters.

2016 was a banner year for Disney. Bookended by brand-new Star Wars films, it also saw the Marvel brand go from strength to strength at the box office. It was also the first time since 2002 that its animation arm released two films in the same year.
