Tag Archive: Rogue One trailer

Star Wars Celebration Europe is in full swing and with new movies rolling out each year each new event comes with new behind the scenes images and clips from the next release.  For this year’s show that means a three-minute look at Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.  And a new poster.

And the images look superb–better even than the look and feel of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  Director Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) has really identified the classic look you’d only think could be designed this way back in 1977.

Montage images reveal a hive of aliens sure to arrive at Target and Wal-Mart by year end as the newest action figures.  The film’s lead, Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, couldn’t look better as our kick-ass heroine, and her accompanying rogue, Captain Andor (Diego Luna) couldn’t be more of a ringer to fill Han Solo’s shoes.  We think we’re even getting a look at the famous stolen plans.

In Return of the Jedi, Mon Mothma told us many Bothans died to deliver information on the weaknesses of the second Death Star.  In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a former stormtrooper figured out how to take out the third galactic Navarone-inspired superfortress in a matter of minutes.  But how did the Rebellion find the plans to the original Death Star–the plans Princess Leia handed off to R2-D2 in Star Wars: A New Hope, which she later recovered thanks to a rescue by Luke, Han, Chewie, Ben, and C-3PO?

In the first trailer released today for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the global fan base is introduced to Jyn Erso (played by Felicity Jones), following in the steps of Daisy Ridley’s young female lead Rey from Star Wars: A Force Awakens last year.  With scenes that remind us of recent Star Wars MMPORGs (that’s massively multiplayer online role-playing game for those not in the know), the newest Star Wars entry takes us to the darker corners of the galaxy, into the process of creating a saboteur capable of destroying an entire planet.

Plenty of coolness can be found here, from what appears to be a samurai warrior (Donnie Yen) to a Grand Admiral Thrawn-garbed fellow (Ben Mendelsohn), to a return to the Yavin IV hidden Rebel base, more AT-ATs, palm trees, a new dark stormtrooper variant, Genevieve O’Reilly (who played the young Mon Mothma in Revenge of the Sith), is back again, Forest Whitaker is a new bounty hunter, and is that Darth Vader going to meet with the Emperor?  Oh, yeah, and a rebel gal in a TIE Fighter pilot suit.  Count us in.

Check out this first trailer for the next big Star Wars flick:
