Fans of the Star Wars franchise were certainly excited last year when these films returned to our full on attention with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. It was the 7th film in the historic mythology and took place some thirty years after we last saw our heroes. I’m sure you’ve all seen that one by now in some fashion because the film generated a whopping $2 billion dollars in the box office. I’m sure that home video sales propelled that number higher but enough on that. Now its time to explore other parts of the Star Wars timeline with this tale that takes place after “Revenge Of The Sith” and before “A New Hope”. Check out the first revealed teaser trailer below.
Following the foundation of the Galactic Empire, a wayward band of Rebel fighters come together to carry out a desperate mission: to steal the plans for the Death Star before it can be used to enforce the Emperor’s rule. Edwards stated that the style of the film will be similar to that of a war film, stating, “It’s the reality of war. Good guys are bad. Bad guys are good. It’s complicated, layered; a very rich scenario in which to set a movie.”
Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso
Diego Luna as Captain Cassian Andor, a Rebel Alliance Officer
Riz Ahmed as Bodhi Rook
Ben Mendelsohn as Director Krennic, an Imperial Military Director
PiercingMetal Thoughts: This looks interesting enough for me even though I am not always crazy about “backstory” stuff. With this film falling between parts III and IV it could be quite a film. I’ll reserve a larger opinion until a longer trailer is unveiled which I guess will be sometime in the summer months. I do like what I see here and it could be fun seeing a full on Galactic Empire doing its nasty to the universe. What did you readers think of this trailer? You down? Let me know in the comments section.
