Lucas Film and Disney have lifted the lid off Rogue One and released the first trailer for the film and what a trailer it is! From the start fans were told the Star Wars Story movies would offer insights into this universe we don’t normally get to see and the trailer more than delivers on that promise.

Look I wasn’t sure how this anthology angle was going to turn out and I wasn’t sold on Edwards either despite being a fan of his work to date. What I heard about Rogue One was it would offer a gritty and realistic look into the how the Rebel Alliance was able to obtain the plans to the Death Star. I felt it was a beyond obvious plot point to use as the first template for the anthology series and I was dreading hand held shaky cam galore. Based on that trailer I am delighted (and hope the film delivers this home) to be proved wrong.

Oh and Felicity Jones? Based on that trailer alone I think her character may just be my new favourite Star Wars character. The attitude! Love it.

Gareth Edwards (Godzilla and the horribly underrated Monsters) directs Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The film stars Felicity Jones, Mad Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Forest Whitaker and Donnie Yen.

This trailer is amazing.

The film hits our screens December 16th.
