Apologies if this is old news, but it seems like there is intentional mirroring or links between the new films. For example - in Rogue One, multiple rebel ships attack an Imperial destroyer, causing a volley of explosions on its upper superstructure. In The Last Jedi, one rebel ship has the same effect. In Rogue One, the Imperial base is an island on a tropical ocean planet and the island features in the last part of the movie. In The Last Jedi, Luke is on a temperate ocean planet and the island largely features in the earlier part of the movie. In Rogue One, the heroes' last sight is of a fiery sky. In The Last Jedi, the hero's last sight is of a fiery sky. In Rogue One and The Last Jedi, the finale includes a message which is sent to allies - in the first film, it's successful, but in the second film it's a failure. Are there any other links between the new films which you've spotted?
