Disney and Lucasfilm have just unleashed a brand spanking new trailer for one of the most anticipated movies of the year Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Check it out above.
Here is the official synopsis:
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
Well then… Here, take my money Lucasfilm, take all of it.
This looks unreal! Rogue One is taking a journey in the Star Wars universe that truly hasn’t been seen yet. Epic ground battles and espionage with a more human element, something akin to Saving Private Ryan but with Star Wars. Felicity Jones looks great in the film; I love her charisma and her attitude, and she has a strong presence on screen. Hopefully her performance will be something to remember.
I really hope that Darth Vader only makes a cameo appearance, giving these new characters a chance to stand on their own two feet. I’m excited to see where the stand alone series is headed. This is a very exciting time to be a Star Wars geek!
