Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer review

This morning as I was editing the Shadowhunters review I got word that the Rogue One trailer was released, so I took a break, and then I watched it and it was incredible.

Now this is one of the anthology Star Wars films that still takes place within the Star Wars universe but not a continuation of any of the few films which are episodes 7,8 and 9. This is actually a prequel to a New Hope which is how a group of rebels got the Death Star plans and giving them to Princess Leia. Basically the first paragraph of the original title crawl.

Felicity Jones plays rebel who is basically leading the mission along with Diego Luna, Donnie Yen and Forrest Whitacker. I like that this movie feels like a war movie and showing battle scenes that a more grounded. The trailer also showed familiar images such as the original storm trooper outfits, the first Death Star and the Star Destroyer which that this a very much a prequel to a New Hope.

I am definitely excited about this trailer after seeing The Force Awakens I am excited about the prospects of new Star Wars movies every year.
