Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is an upcoming live-action Star Wars film, the first in the Star Wars Anthology Series. The film is set for release on December 16, 2016, and will be directed by Gareth Edwards. Gary Whitta worked on the script throughout 2014, and Chris Weitz took over final scripting duties in 2015. Felicity Jones is the first confirmed star of the film.

The film, which began production in August 2015, is set between the films Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. The plot revolves around a band of resistance fighters uniting to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Galactic Empire's planet-destroying battle station. The theft of the Death Star plans was first referenced in the opening crawl in A New Hope.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - Celebration Reel

Looks / sounds promising. Hope for good Star Wars war movie without force, lightsabers and... stupid jokes, lines, gags etc. (ep7) For sure it will be not kind of a remake, ripoff like Abrams did with The Force Awakens. More freedom for the director.

The New 'Rogue One' Trailer Brings Back Darth Vader
11 August 2016

No time for fancy introductions this time around! As promised, the new trailer for 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' premiered during the Olympics and has made its way online. Check it out [from the link] below.

'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Trailer (Official)

By now, you are probably familiar with the plot of the first Star Wars spin-off film, which takes place shortly before the events of the 1977 original. A group of rebels soldiers, led by Felicity Jones‘ Jyn Erso, embark on a desperate mission to steal the plans to the Empire's terrifying new weapon, the Death Star. We know that these plans ultimately end up in the hands of Leia Organa and eventually R2-D2, but 'Rogue One' will explain exactly how that came to pass.

Erso's motley band of soldiers, spies, robots, and assassins consists of seasoned Rebel Alliance operative Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), unhinged security droid K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), ill-tempered pilot Bodhi Rook (Riz Ahmed), blind warrior Chirrut Îmwe (Donnie Yen), and blaster-toting tough guy Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen). Their chief opposition comes in the form of Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn), the high-ranking imperial commander in charge of the Death Star project who commands his own squadron of elite soldiers known as Death Troopers.

Director Gareth Edwards (of 'Monsters' and 'Godzilla' fame) had an interesting challenge ahead of him with 'Rogue One': how do you make a movie set in the Star Wars universe that, by design, doesn't feel like previous Star Wars movies? After all, there are no Jedi in this film and any members of the Skywalker clan (oh, like Darth Vader) are kept on the sidelines. The focus is placed almost entirely on characters we have never seen before. It'll be fascinating to watch how audiences react to this film and whether or not they'll embrace an unfamiliar corner of this massive universe.

I wouldn't call 'The Force Awakens' bad. It's just a bit bland – and a shameless rehash of 'A New Hope'. The one thing that J.J. Abrams got very right was the casting of Daisy Ridley as Ray. She's a force of nature. Truly a radiant and feisty actress. But yes, 'Rogue One' was very good. The only things that bothered me a bit was the lack of traditional opening crawl and the forcefully, intentionally and needlessly untraditional soundtrack. But I've forgiven those small sins on repeated viewings.
