Christopher Webster [Celluloid 04.07.16] scifi action thriller adventure



The first trailer has dropped for Gareth Edwards' Star Wars Anthology film, Rogue One, and it's seriously pretty incredible guys. In what seems to be a La Femme Nikita type situation, Felicity Jones plays Jyn Erso, herself a rogue rebel fighting against The Empire who is captured by The Rebellion and - likely - given a choice to head up a dangerous mission for them, or be imprisoned.

Looking at this, it's also clear that these side stories are going to be the best way to expand the Star Wars universe and I can understand why the old EU was abandoned to make way for new characters in the film canon.


The story takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, and it tells the story of unlikely heroes who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star.


Official Synopsis:
Rebels set out on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star.


Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, and Forest Whitaker.

Rogue One will be released on December 16th, 2016.




Recommended Release:
Star Wars Saga

I'm underwhelmed, to be honest. It certainly looks like a Star Wars movie - just not a very interesting one.
