A long time ago in a galaxy far,

far away....

- Mama.

- We know.

Jyn, gather your things, it's time.


Saw, it's Lyra.

It's happened.

He's come for us.

You know what to do.

Jyn, come here.

Remember, whatever I do,

I do it to protect you.

Say you understand.

I understand.

- I love you, Stardust.

- I love you too, Papa.




You know where to go, don't you?

Trust the force.

You're a hard man to find, Galen.

But farming?

Really, a man of your talents?

It's a peaceful life.

It's lonely, I imagine.

Since Lyra died, yes.



My condolences.

Search the house!


What is it you want?

The work has stalled,

I need you to come back.

I won't do it, Krennic.

We're on the verge of greatness.

We were this close

to providing peace,

security for the galaxy.

You're confusing peace with terror.

Do I, huh?

You have to start somewhere.

I'll be of no help, Krennic.

My mind just isn't

what it was.

I have trouble remembering,

even simple things.


you're an inspired scientist

but you're a terrible liar.

Now I admire the effort,

I really do.

Oh look, here's Lyra back from the dead.

It's a miracle.


Oh, Lyra.

Troublesome as ever.

You're not taking him.

No, of course I'm not.

I'm taking you all.

You'll all come.

You, your child,

- You'll all live in comfort.

- As hostages.

As 'heroes of the Empire.'


Put it down.

Think very carefully.

- You will never win.

- Do it.



They have a child.

Find it!

My child.



We have a long ride

ahead of us.


Check in, security.

Cell block 4227

- I was about to leave.

- I came as fast as I could.

I have to get back on board.

- Walk with me.

- Back to Jedha?

They'll leave without me!

Easy. You have news from Jedha?

Come on.

An Imperial pilot, one of the cargo drivers.

He defected yesterday.

He's telling people

they're making a weapon.

The kyber crystals,

that's what they're for.

What kind of weapon?

- Look, I have to go.

- What kind of weapon?

A planet killer.

That's what he called it.

A planet killer?

Someone named Erso sent him.

- Some old friend of Saw's.

- Galen Erso?

- Was it?

- I don't know! They were looking for Saw when we left.

- Who else knows this?

- I have no idea!

It's all falling apart.

Saw's right, there're spies everywhere

What's all this?

Come on, let's see some scandocs.

Yeah, of course.

My gloves?


What've you done?

Troopers down, section 9.

Are you crazy?

I'll never climb out of here.

My arm...

Get out of the way.

Move! Move!

Calm down.

Calm down.

We'll be all right.

Is that him?

He looks kind of different

than I imagined.


so you're-you're Saw Gerrera?

Saw Gerrera.


Okay, we're just wasting

time that we don't have.

I need to speak to Saw Gerrera!

I keep telling them before, before it's too late.

We're out here in the middle of nowhere.

We need to get to Jedha City.

What part of urgent message

do you guys not understand?


we're all on the same side, if you just

see past the uniform for a minute

I've got to speak to ah...

I've got to speak to Saw Gerrera.

What now?

I don't know.

Must be another pick up.

I thought we had everybody.

-All clear, sir.

- Hallik!

- Liana Hallik!

- Her.

You want to get out of here?


What about me?


You are being rescued

Please do not resist.

LU-28, report to maintenance level 4.

You're currently calling yourself Liana Hallik.

Is that correct?

Possession of unsanctioned weapons,

forgery of Imperial documents,

aggravated assault,
