Fans are already picking apart yesterday’s debut trailer of the first-ever Star Wars spin-off. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (which I’m going to be calling Star Wars: Rogue One because everyone outside of Disney is) made an incredible looking debut. Not only does the film look good, but story seems like it is going to be king again. Seemed to work out pretty well last year for Disney.
So many iconic images. One frame of what appears to be Vader headed for a conference with the Emperor. Ben Mendelsohn’s enigmatic villain, whom I’m calling “The White Moff” until we get a name. An entire FIELD of Imperial Walkers barreling down on our characters. The return of Mon Mothma (with eerily good casting of Genevieve O’Reilly as the Rebellion’s chief). Shadow Troopers! The Death Star’s main gun being assembled! Forrest Whitaker as…something! Here are 40 shots to help you obsess this weekend. Start picking apart every frame! Felicity Jones is joined by, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, and Forest Whitaker. Star Wars: Rogue One will open December 16, 2016.
