Disney's Lego Rogue One Recap Conveniently Ends Before Mass Extinction

Disney recently released its latest Lego Star Wars recap with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, retelling the two-hour film in about two minutes. Guess that didn’t leave a lot of room for the ending— where, you know...

... everybody dies.

“Hooray, we’re all about to be blown up!”

The video was released to celebrate Rogue One’s home release,— as well as to sell toys because obviously, that’s an end-game here. Surprisingly, the clip does a decent job condensing the movie into a bite-sized nugget of information (I especially loved Krennic’s whiny-little-shit voice). But, it concludes with Jyn Erso and Cassian high-fiving after uncovering the Death Star plans in Dad’s briefcase. Umm... a few things happen after that.

Of course, they’re not going to want to emotionally destroy a bunch of kids by ending a Lego video with destroying the entire planet. I just find the whole thing funny, in a demonic, twisted, “watching your best friend watch the Red Wedding” kind of way. If any kids haven’t seen Rogue One yet, boy are they in for a surprise.
