* The film's opening shot: after an opening text crawl and John Williams' legendary fanfare, we see a [[CoolStarship spaceship]] fly past and over a planet, firing at something chasing it... and then a ''[[MileLongShip much bigger]]'' pursuing ship flies over the the camera and fires at it, and keeps getting closer and closer. Audiences in 1977 had never seen anything like it, and knew right away they were witnessing the birth of a whole new kind of filmmaking.

** This is given extra weight when the events of ''Film/StarWarsRogueOne'' are explored, as [[spoiler: Vader had ''seen her ship'' depart from Scarif]], and thus Vader knew that she was lying to his face - but she did it anyway.

*** The destruction of the Death Star is given extra gravitas after Film/RogueOne as it means that [[spoiler: Jyn, Cassian, Bodhi, Chirrut, Baze, K2 and all the rebels who died on the assault on Scarif did not die in vain.]]
