    I was not the biggest fan of the Rouge One movie, mainly because of the pace of the movie it was a bit too slow for me, but in this comic graphic novel you can get all the important parts of the story within 30 mins. The art work is great, and I think they do all the characters justice. The only thing I did not like is the fights were cut a bit short, but I understand this was so they could fit the important bits of the story into such a short book.

    Nice artwork, but reads too much like a Cliff's Notes version of the movie. Nice artwork, but reads too much like a Cliff's Notes version of the movie.

    I'm not quite sure what the point is of these Alessandro Ferrari graphic novel adaptations of Star Wars. I've read the Original and Prequel Trilogies, and now Rogue One. They add nothing at all to the movies and are so quickly read that it would feel really strange to actually spend money on them. (Thank you, Public Library! Our tax dollars at work.)

Rogue One is one of my favorite Star Wars films, however, and I'm eager to read even a mediocre graphic novel adaptation. This book instantly loses points because the cover art makes Felicity Jones look weirdly ugly. But all of the character designs in the book itself are very clever and appealing. This art style seems to fit Rogue One better than it did the trilogies. The storytelling is disappointing. The Scarif battle is related so quickly that it's nearly impossible to understand what's going on, even for a reader who has seen the movie a number of times. My preference would be for an adaptation that expands the movie, not that contracts it almost beyond recognition. For a Rogue One fan with a library card, this is a decent way to spend about 20 minutes. But I wouldn't recommend it more widely than that.

    This is a unique art style, one which is at times a bit cartoon-ish, and at other times haunting and beautiful. Overall I enjoyed the art very much. The dialogue is a truncated version of what is in the movie and easily brushed by. To me it was better acted than read. Worthy if not mind blowing.

    A very fun and fast-paced read, which neat, colorful art. It really just removes the boring parts from the movie! Also, this format lends itself better to familiarity with characters before the story even gets started as there is a section at the beginning detailing each one. Recommended!

    Sooo...another adaptation and sort of money grab like the rest of them. I didn't realize it until pretty much the last page (because Leia again looks like she is 14) that he also did the Star Wars: The Original Trilogy: A Graphic Novel and I am pretty sure it was the same artist design. In saying that I wasn't a big fan of that one and I really not a big fan of this one either. They again can't draw a girl/women. Felicity Jones looks bad and not defined. The guys look much better.

The Scarif battle is poorly written and there is no detail of what is happening and this is one of the biggest parts of the movie. They did a rush job to it. They should have gone in and say let's take our time doing this part and add another 10 pages if needed. This version makes it seem like it is no big deal. Save your money and don't buy. Maybe check out from the library only.

    So Rogue One is either the 3rd or 2nd-best Star Wars movie (don’t @ me), and I’ve had a low-intensity craving for more R1-related content ever since Jyn hit the silver screen. Thus I picked up the Rogue One Graphic Novel Adaptation and, between that and Star Wars: The Original Trilogy: A Graphic Novel, I’m starting to think they just shouldn’t be in the business of adapting the movies to comics.

Without having watched the movie, this graphic novel won’t really make sense. That’s not necessarily a huge problem (obviously you’re only going to read it if you’ve watched the movie), but the graphic novel moves along so fast that it soon becomes an exercise in filling in the blanks. The comedic timing just doesn’t translate from the screen to the page, nor does most of the emotional intensity. (The ending of the Battle of Scarif is depicted reasonably well, I’ll concede). The art is neat, but comes across as a little cartoonish, particularly given the more gritty vibe of Rogue One compared to the rest of Star Wars canon. Read this to refresh your memory, not to relive the experience.

    For being my favorite Disney Star Wars movie, this adaptation is quite mediocre. I began with high hopes, where the characters were presented both as their movie and comic selves. It was a GREAT introduction and helped me better understand Bodhi (who I had no clue about when I first watched the movie). But young Jyn looks exactly the same as older Jyn and the rest of the art also suffers. What saves the art is the coloring. It's beautiful, even in some "ugly" scenes.

I do also like that the weird language on Jedha is translated. The story is extremely fast though and takes out a lot of material. I feel nothing about these characters and scene changes are faster than even in the movie. It was like one moment I was looking at the conversation with Mothma and the next everyone was dead. 3 stars may actually be a bit too high.

    I'm giving this 4 stars purely for the feels. I almost got choked up at the end. I can't imagine that anyone who hasn't seen the film would read this. If they did, I think they'd be a bit confused in parts - it's pretty short on character building. Having said that, I actually found it helpful to clarify some things. I've only seen the movie once(!) and it was nice to be able to fit the pieces together.

    Loved this. I think Rouge One is the best Disney era Star Wars movie made thus far. Yup I said it. I like the characters, I like the story, love the movie. For a graphic novel adaptation that’s seventy two pages long I think they did a good job translating the story we saw on screen. It’s condensed for sure, but the major beats and emotional impacts are all there for us to relive again. Nice to see this story told from a comic book viewpoint. The artwork is great. Good for the whole family. This Loved this. I think Rouge One is the best Disney era Star Wars movie made thus far. Yup I said it. I like the characters, I like the story, love the movie.

    The nice thing about this graphic novel adaptation is that it fills in some holes the movie left; providing slightly different takes on scenes and some missing moments that help connect the story together - things like seeing Bodhi with Galyn, and a moment prominently featured in the trailers that didn't make the movie itself with Jyn. That being said, it also loses some of the depth of the characterizations due to the format. Still, it's a solid addition to the Rogue One presentation, with good The nice thing about this graphic novel adaptation is that it fills in some holes the movie left; providing slightly different takes on scenes and some missing moments that help connect the story together - things like seeing Bodhi with Galyn, and a moment prominently featured in the trailers that didn't make the movie itself with Jyn. That being said, it also loses some of the depth of the characterizations due to the format. Still, it's a solid addition to the Rogue One presentation, with good art and just enough new detail to keep fans interested without just retelling the movie exactly.

    These graphic novel adaptations are fun reads, but for every one I have read I wonder what someone who has not seen the movie would get out of them. I read them with the voices from the movie in my head, as if I was watching a summary of the movie. They are enjoyable projects, but they do not bring anything new, probably by choice. Oh well.

    These are fine. I’m not sure why IDW and Marvel both feel the need to do adaptations of these? They’re the same things but with different style art. These are almost kid friendly with their art style but it’s basically a word for word quick adaptation of the story. Nothing new here.

    Great adaptation of a great movie Easily the best of recent entries in the series, Rogue One carries more emotional firepower than the others combined. The art here is cartoonish, and it works great.

    My year of Star Wars graphic novels continues! I really enjoyed this one. I’m a big fan of the Star Wars films, but I often have a hard time following with the story, the characters, and the place of the story in the larger Star Wars universe. Reading these GN helps.

    The artwork just took me right out of the story. Didn't like it at all. Hard to get past. It felt and looked like a MAD parody without actually being one.
