Finally the first official trailer for the highly anticipated Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is here and takes us to a time before Luke discovered he was strong with the force, to a time when the most powerful weapon in the galaxy was being built. Check out the trailer:
Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) is the director behind this first spin off in the Star Wars universe. Taking us back before the events of the original 1977 Star Wars to when the Rebel Alliance fought hard to steal the plans to the deadly weapon known as the Death Star.
First off, Rogue One's visuals look absolutely spectacular. Not only the CGI but the cinematography is beautiful. We really get an idea of how ginormous the Death Star is and why the Rebel's need to destroy it. This is also a battle that we've never seen on the big screen, we first come in to Star Wars when Princess Leia already has the plans and sends them off to Ben Kenobi, it's going to be very exciting to see the events that lead up to that first film.
This is only a teaser but we get some absolutely great footage. We meet our lead character played by Felicity Jones and also some of her team; Donnie Yen, Diego Luna and Forest Whitaker with a nice cameo from Mon Mothma.
I love the teaser, it looks phenomenal, as a life long Star Wars fan I'm just giddy that we get to see a new movie every year. What did you think of the trailer? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter @JamesPorter97
