Rogue One Teaser Trailer

Apparently it's another Star Wars week because The Force Awakens is finally available on Blu-Ray/DVD and the teaser trailer for Rogue One is out, and here it is!

We know the basic plot of the movie is about a group of rebel spies who steal the plans to the Death Star and it takes place prior to the original trilogy. The trailer accomplishes the two things that it's supposed to. It tells me nothing of the story, and it gets me totally excited to see it. Here are a few things that stood out in the trailer.

Felicity Jones plays Jyn Erso, the only character named in the trailer. She's a badass in case you can't tell.

Hey! It's Mon "Many Bothans died to bring us this information" Mothma! I still have no idea what a Bothan is.

Diego Luna looks to be playing a "Han Solo" type character which is apparently a requirement in any Star Wars film nowadays.

It took forever to build this Death Star because the Dish TV people are just so unreliable.

When I first saw this I thought, "Hey, Magneto's in this film?"

Forest Whitaker in an unnamed, armor clad role. I'm gonna call him Limpy McLimperson until we get a name confirmation.

This "Dark Trooper" will probably be a popular cosplay option at upcoming conventions.

Donnie Yen doing the things that Donnie Yen does... Also looks like a cool cosplay option.

Hooded figure kneeling in a room with Imperial Royal Guards?!? Is the Emperor in there? And who's the hood? Vader doesn't wear a hood, unless that was the day his mask was at the cleaners.

Jiang Wen, with what appears to be an early prototype Slime Blower on his back.

And my life has come full circle! AT-AT's aren't snowbound! Where's Legolas when you need him...

So what do you think? Are you excited for a Star Wars movie with none of the original cast and no Jedi? Or are you sick of Star Wars and simply dead inside?

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens December 16th.
