Warning: contains a major spoiler - read at your own risk…
OK, after the announcement, we all know that Rogue One has sadly no crawl… but, as many of us think, it could always possible to use a fan made one, to make a fan edit, or just for the sake of playing it; there are many one readily available on youtube, but who can tell which is the best?
Because it’s not possible to make a poll here, I would like to know your opinions of the following crawls, and if you have found a new one, or wrote one yourself, please post it in the comment; I’ll add the best (read: the voted one) in this first post.
- if you like an existing crawl, just write “I like” following by one or more crawl number, in descending order
- if you want to add a new crawl, check if it is in line with the previous movies language first, then add a cumulative number to it
I think that “A Star Wars story” should replace the “Episode #” line, followed by the title, instead of using just the title.
Without further ado, here you are
The possible Rogue One crawls:
The Jedi are all but extinct, the Republic has fallen and in their wake, the Galactic Empire has engulfed the far reaches of the galaxy in fear.
Persecuted members of the Old Republic have been thrust into hiding. Only members of the REBEL ALLIANCE dare take a stand against the ruthless Imperial forces.
Deep in the Outer Rim territories, the dastardly Director Krennic has discovered the location of a long lost friend; one capable of completing the Empire’s most powerful weapon yet…
The Galactic Empire has risen. Chancellor Palpatine has declared himself Emperor and, with the one-time Jedi Knight known as Darth Vader at his side, has set about creating a planet-destroying weapon.
With the Jedi presumably extinct, a newly formed REBEL ALLIANCE, led by Mon Mothma, is holding on to the last vestige of hope.
To crush that faith, the Empire has sent their director of Advanced Weapons Research to a remote planet to track down a scientist who is the final key to completing their Death Star…

The once prosperous Republic has crumbled under the sinister rule of the Galactic Empire. Suffering countless losses, a brave REBELLION faces a battle at every turn.
Unbeknownst to the Rebels, an unseen threat looms over the galaxy. Once revealed, this new evil will strike fear in all that oppose the Empire.
With little time to spare, Mon Mothma, leader of the Rebellion, pleads her cause to the Imperial Senate in the hope that more star systems will join in their fight for freedom…
Crawl #4 (revised by the author)
The Jedi are all but extinct, the Republic has crumbled, and the Galactic Empire’s terrible reign falls like a shadow across the stars.
Daring to oppose the imperial battalions, a bold REBEL ALLIANCE seeks to unite planets against the Empire. Division is rife, and conflict threatens to engulf the galaxy.
Meanwhile, deep in the Outer Rim, the ruthless Director Krennic has discovered the location of an old ally - one who holds the key to securing the Empire’s terrifying rule…
It is a time of galactic tyranny. The once venerable democracy has fallen to a despotic Empire,which subjugates the star systems of the defeated Old Republic.
A few brave souls dare to defy this oppressive regime, and whisper of forming a strong REBEL ALLIANCE, now their only hope against the relentless Imperial machine.
With the resistance still fractured and in disarray, the Empire moves swiftly to complete its ultimate weapon, one that will spell destruction and death across the stars…
The Jedi are all but extinct, the Senate is crumbling and in their wake, the Galactic Empire has engulfed the far reaches of the galaxy in fear by command of the EMPEROR.
A sinister Imperial plot to persecute members of the Republic have thrust them into hiding. Only members of the secret REBEL ALLIANCE dare make a stand against the ruthless Imperial regime.
As the shadows of the Empire loom ever larger across the galaxy, so do deeply troubling rumors. Deep in Empire-dominated space, it is said a machine of unimaginable destructive power is nearing completion. A weapon too terrifying to contemplate and a threat that may be too great to overcome…
P.S. even if I put four dots at the end of the last paragraph, the forum software continues to replace them with a three-dots-one-character… so, consider them all four-dots, as Lucasfilm alwasy did!
