Follow the Yellow Brick Rogue, Or: How the Rogue One Crew Mirrors the Wizard of Oz

from The Wizard of Oz
Krennic, Death Troopers, and AT-ACTs, oh my! "So, it's been over two months since Rogue One debuted in theaters, Bryan, shouldn't you be talking about The Last Jedi?!?!" Fie on that, I say! Rogue One deserves more written commentary! Exclamation points! Okay, anyway, yes, I am writing about Rogue One again because I think it's a fantastic movie and, in thinking about it quite a bit for the last two months, I've come up with what I think is an interesting correlation between the characters that make up the "main" crew and those in The Wizard of Oz that go "off to see the Wizard." Have I gone completely mad? Probably, but you'll have to read on to be sure...
