Well, this looks ten times better than JJ's overly long rehash garbage.
Other genres (spy/action in this case) in Star Wars' universe, that's how you do this.
I'll blame Gary Whitta for the on-the-nose dialogue.
Had to do some lel'in at the prequel babies going "ANOTHER FILM ABOUT A PLANET DESTROYING SUPER-WEAPON?!?", it's set just before/during the original you dopes, not another death star redux, it's the "good people" who died to get the plans to the Rebellion Leia mentioned!
It'll be funny if after Episode IX we look back and all three of the side-stories are way better than the three episodes. And Disney chooses to cut the side-stories while putting out Episode X-XXXL. (The wait between IX and X will not be less than seven years. This is happening, you know, I know it, everyone knows it. That's why George recently lamented the sale.)
