Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One Star Wars Story - #GTUSA 1

Being the die hard Star Wars fan I am, I was shocked when I realized no ones really talking about rogue one which will come out in 2 months. So i decided I would talk a little about it, and leave the trailer for you guys to check out.

Official Description
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, also known simply as Rogue One, is an upcoming live-action Star Wars film, the first in the Star Wars Anthology Series. The film, set for release on December 16, 2016, is directed by Gareth Edwards and produced by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, amongst many others. Gary Whitta worked on the first draft of the screenplay throughout 2014, and Chris Weitz took over final screenwriting duties in 2015. The film is based on a story concept from John Knoll, Chief Creative Officer/Senior Visual Effects Supervisor of Industrial Light & Magic. The film’s score is composed by Michael Giacchino, marking the first live-action film in the official Star Wars canon to not be scored by John Williams.

Rogue One stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Riz Ahmed, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, and Alan Tudyk. Genevieve O’Reilly reprises her role as Mon Mothma, the leader of the Rebel Alliance; O’Reilly portrayed the character for 2005’s Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, but her scenes were cut. The film also features the return of Darth Vader.

The film, which began production in August 2015, is set between Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. It is set closer to the latter film and focuses on the efforts of the Rebel Alliance to steal the plans to the Death Star, an event that was referenced in the opening crawl of A New Hope. Jyn Erso, played by Jones, and a group of other characters band together to steal the plans from the Galactic Empire. Edwards has described the film as a grounded, war-based movie, one in which normal people have to come together to fight the Empire as opposed to relying on the Jedi or the Force.

  • I’m excited about this movie. In a way it’s new content. Every time they touch the “Holy Trilogy” they make changes that can damage and destroy it. (Han shooting first, Anakin’s virgin birth, weird Jedi rules, Jar Jar Binks, etc.) So it is refreshing to take a step back and look into the untold awesomeness that looms out there in a galaxy far far away and the best part is that is connects to the originals in such a way that it tells us what was happening “meanwhile, back at the Ranch” without actually being the official movie. I’m all for that. I hope the do more similar projects.
