The Wookiee Gunner: When Death Is The Go-To Answer, Stop And Rethink

After my first viewing of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, I have to admit I was angry about the fact that all of the major characters died. I had expected one or two survivors, so the death of them all was both shocking and disappointing. Since then, I’ve come to accept the fates of the characters, having come to the understanding that it was, in fact, a suicide mission and that they weren’t going to give up after all that they had done in the name of the Rebellion.

That said, many viewers believed the characters were killed off because they’re not in A New Hope or the movies that followed.
