The first teaser trailer for Rogue One dropped yesterday. The first standalone movie in the Star Wars saga, Rogue One tells the story of how the Death Star’s plans got into the hands of the rebellion. The story is set between the events of Episode III and IV, closer to IV though.
Rogue One is the first of more standalone movies that Disney intends to churn out, as Star Wars fans become thirstier than ever before for new content. Personally, I like the direction Disney has taken with regards to the whole Star Wars universe, with the similarities to the Original trilogy, the design and sets and practical effects in Episode VII.
So even if you aren’t a big Star Wars fan (Come on, who isn’t?), this teaser is worth checking out. Me though, I’ve been yelling “Shut up and take my money” since yesterday. Rogue One hits theatres on December 16th this year.
