Star Wars, In One Animated Chart

Last month, upon the release of the new Star Wars1 movie “Rogue One,” we explored the collapse of the Imperial Navy over the course of the original Star Wars trilogy. Central to that analysis was a chart showing Imperial troop loss as the story progressed through the major battles. Now you can see an animated version of that chart in the video above. Enjoy!

Animation by Sebastian Curi. Narration by Ella Koeze. Additional contributions from Walt Hickey and Tony Chow.
