Yesterday Disney released a small teaser for Rogue One. I’m not hard to please and the 11 second trailer yesterday got my geek meter perking. However, this morning Disney released a full teaser trailer and I must say it looks great! It has the old Star Wars feel since the story takes place shortly before A New Hope. I’m definitely giving credit to Disney and Lucas Films for the creativity to create a story before A New Hope . Enough of me being a fanboy, go check out the new trailer below for Rogue One.
The Story: Following the foundation of the Galactic Empire, a wayward band of Rebel fighters comes 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. (Wikipedia Credit)
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the new space opera film directed by Gareth Edwards and written by Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz, from an idea by visual effects supervisor John Knoll. It will be the first Star Wars Anthology film, a stand-alone story set in the Star Wars universe, and will star Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Medelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Milkkelson, Neil Breen and Alan Tudyk. Set shortly before the events of A New Hope, the story will center on a group of Rebel spies on a mission to steal the plans for the Galactic Empire’s new weapon, the Death Star. The film is produced by Lucas Films and will be distributed by Walt Disney Studio Motion Pictures. Principal Photography began at Elstree Studios, near London during early August 2015. Rogue One will be released on December 16, 2016.
