The trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was released on Thursday and it looks fucking amazing.
Rogue One, directed by Gareth Edwards, is a prequel of sorts to A New Hope. Taking place shortly before the first Star Wars, it follows a wanted criminal named Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) who is recruited by the Rebellion for a very important mission: stealing the plans for the Death Star. The film also stars Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelson, and Alan Tudyk, and will be opening on December 16.
Admittedly while I’m more into Star Trek than Star Wars, I do still enjoy the latter. I really liked the original trilogy, thought the prequel trilogy was kind of meh, and absolutely adored The Force Awakens. So, I’m actually pretty pumped for this movie.
Plus there’s the fact that certain fanboys are getting their undies in a bunch because the film features a female protagonist. That right there pretty much guarantees that I’m going to see the movie.
So, yes. Really looking forward to this one.
