The Last Jedi turns 5: Why Rose Tico’s best line is one of the best summaries for all of Star Wars, including Andor

At the end of The Last Jedi, Rose Tico does something rather rash: she crashes her speeder into Finn's, saving his life in the process. As he asks her why she did it, she utters these beautiful words: "That's how we're gonna win. Not fighting what we hate, saving what we love." This is an [...]

The series is packed with them, but they're simply done in ways that feel fitting for this show, and often they're simply in the background. The [...]
