Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, or simply Rogue One, is an upcoming 2016 American epic space opera film directed by Gareth Edwards and written by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy, from an idea by visual effects supervisor John Knoll. It will be the first stand-alone Star Wars Anthology film, and the ninth theatrical feature film in the series. It will also be the first live-action theatrical Star Wars film not scored by long-time series collaborator John Williams, with Alexandre Desplat serving as composer. Set in the Star Wars universe shortly before the events of A New Hope, the story will center on a group of Rebel spies on a mission to steal the plans for the Galactic Empire's new weapon, the Death Star. It will star Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Riz Ahmed, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Jiang Wen, and Forest Whitaker.

The film is produced by Lucasfilm and will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Principal photography began at Elstree Studios, near London during early August 2015. Rogue One will be released on December 16, 2016.

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.

Krennic will actually kill Darth Vader, but get horribly injured in the process. This will require him to put on Vader's suit to stay alive, thus preserving continuity.

Also, Krennic is actually a surgically-altered Darth Maul.

Anyway, looks like the excuse for reusing assets from TFA is now they're super-experimental prototype ships used by top-tier special forces. As long as they have a proper rank plaque system, I will forgive this. <_<

It's certainly interesting, I'll grant that, but not something I'd put any money on. A hella lot of Star Wars themes reuse bits of music and stuff.

It's a long road that has no turning - It's never too late to mend.
The darkest hour is before the dawn, and even this war must end.

So, the "big news" is Palpatine isn't going to be in it (at least, Ian McDiarmid isn't). Ummm... okay?

Oh, I guess there was some teased Palpy in the trailer... so that means it's not Palpy kneeling before the bacta tank. So many now that's some other lightsaber wielding stooge that can be disposed of by the heroes at the end of the film without actually Worfing Vader.

While the idea of Palpy being in hadn't really occurred to me before, now that I think about it I'm a little disappointed. Ian McDiarmid's performance was one of the few things I did like about the prequels. Not Worfing Vader would be nice, though (albeit at this point he's still a lackey). (Kudos to DS9 for not Worfing Worf nearly as often as TNG did. In fact, the only instance of Worfing Worf in DS9 that I can think of--in "By Inferno's Light"--was handled very well, actually.)

...And if they only mate once, how do they maintain their population--given that many will not conceive on the first try, and those that do will only have one child. So...that's a negative growth rate...in a hostile environment where we can expect a high infant mortality rate...in the middle of a war with technologically superior enemies. How do the Tusken Raiders still exist?

Here we see the Wookiee in its natural habitat, strangling a stormtrooper after having lost to the trooper in a game of space chess.
Hence the expression "Let the wookiee win." Because some people just know better.

But now that you mention it, I would love to play some Dejarik when if I make it to my party with some friends.

I'm going to take a guess and say these new guys are either really not real people and are spam-based robots littering this thread or they are real people, they just have a spamming tendency.

Either way, it's getting just a tad bit old now, don't you think?

Dallows, that trailer is great! I didn't even know it was published on YT. Well, looks like I'm getting rid of the video I had ealier then.

Other than that, great find General.

You made me curious enough to watch it. Confirmed. Also I love how Disney's all like, "We're not racist! We have an Asian in our cast!" Then they have him say "stwong."

As I understand, he's a native Chinese speaker... and his English isn't actually very good. In an interview I saw with him, there seemed to be a dependence on other cast members to answer for him. And given that I work closely with three people from Northern China and one from the South... I guess it just slipped past my radar.

Ah, if it's his actual accent that's different. I assumed he was Chinese-American and they were having him put on a Chinese accent.

All Chinese are martial arts experts. Just like all Japanese are robot-obsessed tech expert school girls with blue hair. Obviously.
