Rogue One

Stop literally everything you are doing. The teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has just landed. And it is epic.

I could go on for hours about everything I love in this teaser, but I’ll let it speak for itself. 



In the most recent Star Wars films, the lead character has been a powerful, nuanced female character. This is a bold move in a generation of film making that relies too heavily on brown-haired, white-skinned leads for EVERYTHING. But it’s not just about taking your script, hitting CTRL F, and changing the pronouns to the feminine. These screenwriters are developing heroines who are above all likable and varied. They are supported by a cast of characters–male, female, and alien–that all have their own agency and purpose. 

Now, this is just a teaser. There is plenty more to wonder from the footage shown. What planets will we visit? Are these characters cannon fodder or will any survive? How many Bothans had to die to bring us this footage?

Stay tuned to for all your Rogue One news!
