Movie Trailer: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)


As interesting as the Star Wars franchise has been (and continues to be), it can’t seem to shake old tropes. Take for instance the Death Star. It appears in all but the first two films (someone fact check me, please) and, although under a new name, even appears as in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Guess what? It’s central to the plot in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story too. This time it involves the Rebellion trying to get their hands on the plans for the Death Star by employing the daughter (Felicity Jones) of its architect (Mads Mikkelsen). I think we know how it turns out since this movie is basically a prequel, but getting there should still offer a few surprises. Plus hearing James Earl Jones voice some new Darth Vader lines promises to be cool too. Check out the latest trailer courtesy of Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Pictures.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story stars Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Forest Whitaker, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Riz Ahmed, Alan Tudyk, Diego Luna and Jimmy Smits.

    I’m all in to hear the baritone voice of JEJ deliver a Vader one-liner like a champ again. Otherwise, I don’t see there being a lot of variation between this and the 7 other Star Wars movies that makes me think I have to see it.

    They’ve learned alot of moviemaking in 40 years so I’m hoping Rogue One is the best of the Star Wars until Episode VIII. It certainly LOOKS like it from the trailers so far.

    If this is sandwhiched in between eps 3 and 4 then I expect Darth Vader will be flexing his force muscles in a way we haven’t seen yet.

      It is and if you piece it together Mads Mikkelsen is an architect under distress so that may explain why there was a weakness built into the death star and Felicity Jones may be the rebel they mentioned in Episode 4 who died getting the plans back to the rebellion.

    I never understood what is so special about Star Wars canon. In the 70s I get it was new and exciting but today, compared to similar sci-fi/fantasy, its no better. The fact Force Awakens was a near literal rehash of A New Hope, actually makes it worse.
    People need to stop holding so tight to what once was.

    She can have all the hope she wants it ain’t going to save her from Darth Vader. His strut shows he means business and I can’t wait to see him dish it out!

    This had better be better than The Force Awakens or I’m going to be pissed.

    Judging by the lack of originality in Force Awakens and now Rogue One, its obvious Disney is going to run this franchise into the ground.
