Note: if you have not seen Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and don't want to see spoilers, DON'T READ THIS! Note 2: I wanted to type this up and post it last month, but I hadn't gotten around to finishing it until now. That's why this is late. So Star Wars's first one-off story, at least one to have a cinematic release, came out last month. And while I did really enjoy it, does it hold up for the other movies? Here's what I though about it. Spoilers are beyond this point, just to give another warning.
Note: Slight spoilers for the latest trailer are in this entry. Don't read if you don't want to be spoiled. Don't you hate it when you want to blog about info revealed on something you like but can't until a few days later because life keeps you busy? I do. But regardless, a new Star Wars: Rogue One trailer was released last week. Since the movie is coming out in last than two months, it could be assumed that this will be the final trailer for the film. And aside from revealing that Jyn's father plays a part in the building of the Death Star and what 'Rogue One' means in the film's story, we don't really get any new info on the film's plot. And that delights me a lot. I think it's great that one could watch all three trailers for this movie and still not have a concrete idea on what is going to happen in it. I mean, we do know that they get the plans in the end, as the Rebels have them in A New Hope. But how they got them isn't really shown in these trailers. The Force Awakens trailers did the same thing with that movie's story last year, and I hope this trend continues for the upcoming Star Wars movies. As for what is shown in the trailer, I will say that it all looks really cool. You can tell from the tone of it that this movie will have a darker, serious story to it. The blend of CGI and practical effects looks great here as well, just as it did in The Force Awakens. And the music sounds good too, though I'm not sure if it will be as good as John William's Star Wars scores of the past. But overall, this trailer has succeeded in keeping my hype up for this movie. December can't get here soon enough. But not before Doctor Strange comes out next month. What do you guys think of this trailer?
Here it is, folks. The second trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: Rogue One which will be out in December. One of the things I noticed about it is that it has a darker tone to it than from what we saw with The Force Awakens trailers. I really hope that they keep this tone for the whole movie. I don't mind a few jokes here and there, like the couple they have here in the trailer. But overall I kind of want a darker story to be told in this movie. But that is just me. I also think the visuals look great. I particularly liked the scene that shows our hero's ship flying into what appears to be a giant sandstorm. It kind of gives me a Mad Max: Fury Road vibe. The scene where they are flying through what appears to be a thunderstorm looks great as well. Overall, I enjoyed watching this trailer and it has succeeded in getting me excited to see Rogue One. Now December just has to get here.
Guess what was released today? The trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story! Here it is for those who haven't seen it yet. As for my thoughts on it, it doesn't give me the same feeling of excitement as the trailers for The Force Awakens did when they were released. But that doesn't mean I'm not excited for this at all, because I do think this is a good trailer and I look forward to seeing the movie when it comes out. Plus, I like what they did with the Star Wars theme music in this. It helps to set the mood of the story IMO. What do you guys think of this trailer?
