Rogue One Story Trailer

Keeping our cinematic universes moving along, Rogue One launched its official story trailer. Set before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, the galaxy is struggling with the new tyrannical regime of the galactic empire. With the rebellion desperate to keep up, a young rebel fighter, Jyn Erso, ( Felicity Jones) is tasked with leading a covert team to steal the plans for the empire’s super weapon, the death star. Directed by Godzilla helmer, Gareth Evans, Rogue one is the first of many supposed stand alone Star Wars Universe films.

While some would argue a Jedi-less Star Wars is a boring Star Wars, I’m very interested to see how this movie will pull it off. I like the idea of a more military-centric Star Wars film. Gareth Evans definitely has a great visual flair for the role of director; but will the story hold up? According to Hollywood Reporter, Tony Gilroy was brought in to handle reshoots and bring the story in for a tighter closing. This isn’t the first time either, as Gilroy was also uncredited for assisting  Evans on Godzilla. That being said I did enjoy Godzilla, so thoughts are optmistic, but let’s get back to the trailer.

So our trailer story trailer is more or less an assemble intro. We are introduced to our hero Jyn, then go down the roster: We have Cassian Andor, (Diego Luna), Chirrut Îmwe, (Donnie Yen), Baze Malbus, (Jiang Wen),  K-2SO ,(Alan Tudyk) and Saw Gerrera, (Forest Whitaker). Everyone had their brief moment in this trailer. My personal favorite being Donnie Yen knocking around stone troopers. Saw Gerrera  in particular was especially intriguing. In this trailer he has hair and is less scarred as opposed to our first glimpse in the teaser months ago.

After that we’re given more scenes of rebellion and open warfare and a nice tease of Darth Vader, who will be voiced once again by James Earl Jones. All and all not a bad trailer, I’m not particularly super excited for it, but my attention is got. I’ll reserve judgment until I see the movie as the reshoots have a me slightly concerned. Though to be fair most movies do reshoots, but it’s the nature of the reshoots. Check out Rogue One December 16,2016
