A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….
Lucasfilm are on a roll. Just this December, the studio released Star Wars: The Force Awakens which became the highest grossing film in history (domestically) and now they are moving ahead with the spin-offs in the Star Wars universe. The company debuted the teaser trailer for the next story in the Star Wars saga titled Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The spin-off will take place just before Star Wars: A New Hope with the story focusing on the band of rebels which stole the original Death Star plans. The production design is amazing and very reminiscent of the 1977’s A New Hope (as it should be) transporting the viewer back into the world George Lucas created.
The teaser gives us the taste of things to come. We are immediately introduced to our lead played by Felicity Jones as she proudly states “I rebel”. We also get quick shots of Diego Luna and Jiang Wen as a fellow rebels, Ben Mendelsohn‘s villain and IP Man star Donnie Yen kicking some stormtrooper ass.
