The awakening has passed. It is time for the Supreme Leader Snoke to wake up from his sleep. The movie Rogue One the new Star Wars movie is about to come. This episode is taking place between episode 2 Attack of the Clones and episode 3 Revenge of the Sith.

 

That film is Star Wars: Rogue One, a “heist” film that will revolve around a rag-tag group of Rebel soldiers who are tasked with stealing the blueprints of the Empire’s disastrous planet destroying Deathstar. The cast of characters will be new for the film universe, and far more diverse than any other Star Wars movie sans-Force Awakens.That film is Star Wars: Rogue One, a “heist” film that will revolve around a rag-tag group of Rebel soldiers who are tasked with stealing the blueprints of the Empire’s disastrous planet destroying Deathstar. The cast of characters will be new for the film universe, and far more diverse than any other Star Wars movie sans-Force Awakens. The first trailer of the movie has been released.
The first thing that hits you when you start watching this trailer is the music. Yeah, it’s a variation on an iconic John Williams track, but it’s been modified just enough to evoke all kinds of new feelings. It’s melancholy and eerie, setting the mood for a film that looks ready to explore the dark and grimy underbelly of the Star Wars universe. It’s not clear if this is a piece from Alexandre Desplat‘s actual score or not, but it’s an indicator that the music of this universe is in fine hands, even as Williams himself steps away from the series. As for the opening shot itself, it’s simple enough:Felicity Jones‘ character is led through a doorway, past one of those Rebel soldiers wearing one of those dumb helmets. We first saw these uniforms in the opening scene original 1977 Star Wars, when these guys acted as the last line of defense between Darth Vader and Princess Leia and got ruthlessly slaughtered by Stormtroopers.
