I’m still having a hard time believing we’re really in this, a brand new Star Wars movie every year. Here’s the official teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
“Following the foundation of the Galactic Empire, a wayward band of Rebel fighters come together to carry out a desperate mission: to steal the plans for the Death Star before it can be used to enforce the Emperor’s rule.”
So no Darth Vader in the trailer, but we did get a very good look at Mon Mothma and I have to hand it to the casting director, they found a very convincing look-alike. Besides that, I like that Rogue One looks like its own thing. Based on this first teaser it has a very different tone compared to The Force Awakens, and that AT-AT fight at the end looked like nothing we’ve ever seen in a Star Wars movie. Yes, I’m still very much looking forward to Rogue One.
Directed by Gareth Edwards (2014 Godzilla) with a story by Gary Whitta and John Knoll and a screenplay by Chris Weitz, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story stars Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen and many others.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story rebels starting December 14th in France and December 16th in the US and just about everywhere else in the world. Next year we’re going back to the main story arc in Star Wars: Episode VIII, which opens December 15th 2017.
