    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, or simply Rogue One, is an upcoming American epic space opera film directed by Gareth Edwards and written by Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz, from an idea by visual effects supervisor John Knoll. It will be the first film in the Star Wars Anthology series, a collection of stand-alone stories set in the Star Wars universe, and will star Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, and Alan Tudyk. Set shortly before the events of Star Wars (1977), the story will center on a group of Rebel spies on a mission to steal the plans for the Empire's new weapon, the Death Star. - Wikipedia

    Anyone else keeping up with news on this?

    This guy is. I was actually more stoked for this one than Episode VII simply for its departure from the story and tone. Sounds like the production may have had budgetary setbacks though, which is disheartening. Still amped on the prospect of a Star Wars movie beyond the scope of the main story line.

    Awesome. Yep and I'm stoked that Felicity Jones is attached to this as well. Very excited to see how this turns out.

    Oh man, she's my favorite. I fell in love watching Breathe In. Fantastic actress.

    Definitely a fantastic actress. Hopefully we will be getting a trailer soon, or at least teaser.
  7. Jacob Tender @podchasmfm @banthafodderfm Supporter

    Lord, I hope so. Bets on whether or not there will be a Episode VIII trailer attached to Rogue One? We talked about it on the latest episode of Bantha Fodder, but I'd love to see Lucasfilm get on that sort of schedule.

    I could see that happening, or at the least, a 30 second teaser. Do you remember the timeframe of how many months they released the first teaser for Star Wars, before the actual movie came out? Figure for a December release, within the next month or so we'll get a sneak peek.

    I'm not actively following updates on this film, but I am VERY eager to see it. As a big fan of Edwards' Godzilla, The Force Awakens, and the premise, I expect to adore this.

    The first teaser for The Force Awakens dropped at the end of November 2014, roughly a year ahead of the premiere. Rogue one won't be as big, hence just the teaser image, but I reckon we're due for a teaser trailer in the next month or so.

    I'm anticipating some Darth Vader breaths and cool action shots in the grimy atmosphere Edwards is promising.

    I'm pretty excited for this to be honest. I was skeptical at first, but the things I'm hearing are great.

    Was really hoping Tatiana Maslany would land the lead role, but I love Felicity Jones

    I love this poster, I think it may be fan made? But still ... it's awesome.

    Still holding out hope that she gets a role in VII or IX.

    Beautiful poster, but that's definitely not Felicity Jones, right?
  20. I don't ... think so? But I honestly don't know. Haha. I just saw this used as the cover on Letterboxd last night when I was adding movies to my want to watch list and had to go find it.

    So we have to get a trailer soon, right? I'm guessing after TFA home release.

    My guess is the teaser trailer comes with Civil War and we get a full one at Star Wars Celebration. It would have been a cool easter egg to put it in the Force Awakens dvd release though.
  25. Jacob Tender @podchasmfm @banthafodderfm Supporter

    That would have been really great. I think you may be right with Civil War. Fingers crossed!
