First Trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has to be one of most anticipated films of this year. It is the first of many anthology films coming over the next few years, which will complement the episodes that follow the traditional story line. The first of these anthology films, Rogue One, will focus on the stealing of the Death Star plans, which kicks off the plot of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. We know very little about this film, other than the main cast. So there was a lot to learn going into this trailer. How would this look  comparative to the other films? Would this actually feel like a Star Wars movie, or something else? These were all unknowns when I hit play on the trailer, but now we have some semblance of answers.

This trailer is awesome! It definitely feels like Star Wars, but different. It has a darker, more serious tone than the other films. The look and design fits the universe perfectly. The battle scenes hinted at look incredible. I was surprised with how epic it looked, as I was expecting a smaller film. I didn't think it was going to be quite as big. I can't wait to see the scene with the AT-ATs, as they are some of the best weapons from the original trilogy. Felicity Jones looks great as the lead, and this trailer seemingly had an emphasis on Forest Whitaker. My only problem was that I was holding out hope that we would see a tease to Darth Vader, but that can be saved for another time. Overall, this was just a great trailer. It fit right in with the Star Wars universe, and it calmed any nerves I had about it. I think this is going to be a fantastic movie, and I can't wait to see what director Gareth Edwards does with this movie.
