SPOILER ALERT: Rogue One is already considered a successful addition to the Star Wars anthology. Did you know the writers of this masterpiece are staunch, C.I. Scofield-premillennialists? Here are 4 moments from the grand picture-show to prove it and make your hands slap each other in disbelief.
1. The movie opens with a flashback — Imperial Director Orson Krennic hunts down scientist Galen Erso and his family. In the middle of the scene, when climax is reached, the credits start rolling, and a small man walks toward the camera and sings a solo, Orson Krennic says, “Premillennialism was the most widely held view of the earliest centuries of the church.”
2. Later, Cassian Andor murders an informant in a cosmic trading outpost, and he’s given the secret order later to assassinate Jyn’s father. After receiving the order, the camera pans to a pair of wooden shoes on the floor nearby, during which you can hear Cassian whisper, “All of the prophetic texts are plain prophecies of Christ’s second coming and kingdom. All are yet without their accomplishment, and all shall yet be literally and exactly fulfilled.”
3. As a group of soldiers aboard a Rebel ship receive the chip containing Jyn’s crucial transmission, Vader’s heavy breathing is suddenly heard from a darkened corner of the room. Then, over the intercom, an announcement is made: “This ship, as well as all of our other properties, will receive large C.I. Scofield bumper stickers, donated by United Way.”
4.The most emotional scene ends with the colorful droid K-2SO taking blast after blast while helping Jyn and Cassian. It is here that K2SO expresses his excitement: “I look forward to a literal Millennial Kingdom that will be established immediately after the Tribulation.”
