Star Wars: Rogue One (2016)

 
Concept featured in clip: Environmental Destruction
Location of clip: (DVD)


Summary of clip: This clip of the Death Star shows the Empire's ultimate achievement that drained an entire planet's resources to build this abomination that ultimately has been used to destroy entire planets in a single blast.

Connection of flickclip to the concept:The message of the clip is that we have to be aware of what the repercussions are of our constant advancement and to pay attention to the effect of our experimentation on the environment around us or we could end up like the poor planet that was drained for resources and ultimately destroyed.
Suggestions to teachers:

Question after viewing:
This technological creation allows for us to ask what we would do if we had a similar weapon of mass destruction and what we'd be willing to do for unity in the world? Could it be possible with the wars present in our world today?
How can technology be used to benefit and unite the world, rather than create fear and ultimately force us into another war?
How could the Death Star relate to real world use of nonrenewable resources to make something we really shouldn't need?
