Welcome Star Wars fans, as you may have guested today was a trailer release of the new Anthology film of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. If you are unfamiliar with this project from Disney and Lucasarts then allow me to enlighten you. When Disney purchased the rights to Star Wars they made a choice to expand the cinematic universe. Fans already know the success of the original Star Wars but it has been obvious we wanted to learn more about a “galaxy far far away”. Rogue One is the beginning of such an expansion in this Star Wars Anthology Series.
Ultimate Power In The Universe
Rogue One is a story which takes place before the events of a New Hope. This plot explains the events of how the rebels obtained the plans for the Deathstar which would later begin our classic story arc of Star Wars. Felicity Jones has taken the heroine mantel as Jyn Erso with other great casting such as Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, Alan Tudyk and Riz Ahmed. Little is know to this point since the studio has limited the information until the release of the film.
Believe it when I see it
So far this film appears to take us to a new direction. For one I enjoy the fact the new films have added a more ethnic cast with great actors. Whitaker and Yen both have been well established in their careers but haven’t seen a franchise opportunity such as Star Wars. The tone of picture appears to maintain the original films with the look, sounds and music. The introduction of Felicity Jones as a bad ass rebel is very appealing. I don’t know about you but on December 16th I’m going to be in that IMAX seat waiting for the title scroll.
