The Star Wars Rogue One teaser trailer, titled Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, was released today taking us back to a different time in the galaxy. Now that The Force Awakens has raked in nearly $2 billion at the box office, it was time to start fans on their next feeding frenzy – Rogue One.
While this is not Episode VIII, which is due out in late 2017, this will be the start of several spin off movies that are said to have taken place around the original trilogy. Rogue One in particular is set to be the connection between Revenge of the Sith, and A New Hope. This is where we will begin to get the missing pieces we have thought about like how the Rebel Alliance came into possession of the infamous Death Star plans.
This is a rebellion, isn’t it?
This stand alone movie will star some pretty amazing people such as Felicity Jones who leads the rebels on their quest to capture the Death Star plans, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, and Ben Mendelsohn to name a few. It would be hard to mention the cast and ignore the director Gareth Edwards, who is known for such movies as Godzilla. This team so far has what it takes to put together an absolute great performance.
One of the most iconic scenes I remember as a child watching Star Wars was when the AT-AT’s were storming the rebel base on Hoth, and it looks like we are about to get yet another taste. You will notice near the end of the Rogue One teaser that the rebels are trying to fend off another squadron of impeding AT-AT’s, which surely should be awesome to watch.
Well folks it looks like we are in the decade of Star Wars movies. We will have new episodes that will continue the epic saga, and anthologies to help fill in the gaps and keep us wanting more.
