  1. So it looks like the new Disney streaming service (creatively named Disney+) will be adding a second live-action Star Wars show to its lineup. Joining the in-production The Mandalorian will be a series focusing on Rogue One's Cassian Andor. (So obviously this is a prequel). https://www.starwars.com/news/cassian-andor-live-action-series-announced Having sort of a SW spy thriller sounds like it could have good potential. Plus there is the possibility of more K-2/Alan Tudyk. So I'M IN.

    Rogue One trailer analysis

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first of the Star Wars anthology films coming this December, but true to the form we saw with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, secrecy is rife and much is still unknown about the film. Here's a breakdown of the Rogue One teaser trailer that was released earlier this week with screen-grabs and commentary, and perhaps a little wishful thinking sprinkled in for good measure. "It's a rebellion isn't it? I rebel." Rogue One has a strong female lead in Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), who is introduced to us as a renegade. She first appears to us in cuffs, a captive of the Rebel Alliance, and lead through a base that very clearly resembles the Alliance base on Yavin IV, last seen in the climax of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly, who also portrayed Mon Mothma in a Revenge of the Sith deleted scene) is seemingly trying to recruit Erso as an Alliance operative to join a ragtag band of misfits - a Rogue Squadron, one might say - as they take on a special mission to uncover the details of the Empire's latest weapon. "A major weapons test is imminent, and we need to know what it is and how to destroy it." There's no tiptoeing around here: The Death Star is nearing completion, and we are shown part of the primary superlaser being lowered into place while a fleet of tiny one-mile-long Star Destroyers stand guard. Erso's partner on this misision (played by Diego Luna) is currently an unknown character, but it looks like he already has a history with the Alliance, and carries with him a swagger reminiscent of The Force Awakens' Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). Ben Mendelsohn's character appears in a crisp white Imperial uniform. Little is known about this Imperial officer, but it has been speculated that he is part of the Imperial Security Bureau. In the now-defunct Expanded Universe, a uniform similar to this was worn by Imperial Grand Admirals, but this is unlikely to have been carried over to the new canon. Forest Whitaker is allegedly portraying a bounty hunter, and again, not much is known about his character, but his voice-over for the remainder of the trailer is clearly warning somebody of the consequences of their actions. A new type of black-armored stormtrooper is shown in an unknown location. There is a moisture vaporator in the background, but the landscape seems rocky and green rather than the sand dunes of Tatooine. It may be worth a mention that the video game Dark Forces, which featured a now non-canon version of the mission to retrieve the Death Star plans, featured Dark Troopers, black-armored droid stormtroopers. Jyn Erso and her partner (oh, please let him be Kyle Katarn) run through an Imperial facility, accompanied by a droid rumored to be Alan Tudyk's character. We can't see at this point whether they are running from the masses of Imperial troops that seem to be following them, or whether they are all fleeing from something else. Unsurprisingly, Donnie Yen's character is a melee fighter, who uses martial arts to defeat a large group of stormtroopers. If you've ever seen the Ip Man films then you probably already knew Yen's character was going to be a bad-ass, and smacking stormtroopers around without a lightsaber or a blaster certainly fits the bill. A cloaked figure walks towards some sort of large misty glowing tube, and the red-robed Imperial Guards are a sure sign that Emperor Palpatine is nearby. The cloaked figure does not seem to be Palpatine himself and wears a hood unlike Darth Vader. AT-ATs, also known as Imperial Walkers, make a welcome return to action as they fire at our heroes as the flee what looks like an Imperial bunker; probably the same one we saw rebels and Imperials alike racing through earlier in the trailer. The terrain appears to be somewhat tropical, and could be the same planet we saw the black stormtrooper on. "If you continue to fight... what will you become?" The trailer finishes with Jyn Erso in a TIE fighter pilot suit. Rogue One is shaping up to be an action-packed opening for the Star Wars spin-off films, although a couple of notable absences are Mads Mikkelsen's character, and the rumored appearances of Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin. But this is just the first teaser trailer, and we are sure to find out more in the coming months. Rogue One will be released on 16 December 2016.

    Rogue One reviews

    Many have now seen Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and critcs have been leaving their verdicts on the first of the Star Wars spin-off movies. Rotten Tomatoes currently tracks Rogue One at 85% after 241 critic reviews, with an audience score of 89% positive after 41,000 audience ratings. Here's a round-up of the critics' comments below. While we have tried to avoid spoilers, be aware that some of the links may be riddled with them! Rolling Stone called Rogue One amazing in their review, perfectly capturing the magic of the original Star Wars trilogy, with a combat-heavy finale that means Rogue One gets better as it goes along. GQ's reviewers said that Rogue One was a solid start to a new vision for the Star Wars franchise, although it lacked the emotional depth of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The Guardian scored Rogue One 4/5 in their fan-written review, saying that the film was "made for the fans" and had enough depth to be worth an extra viewing, but questioned whether it would resonate with the average viewer. The Telegraph also scored Rogue One 4/5. They saw it as less nostalgic than The Force Awakens, but still fits neatly in to the Star Wars universe despite the darker tone of the story. The New York Times was less positive about Rogue One, claiming that although all of the ingredients were there, they found clumsy plots and dialogue made for a mediocre movie. Time also derided Rogue One for being almost pedantic in its inoffensiveness, with a colour palette resembling "intergalactic dishwater". The Verge said that although Rogue One struggles early on it does grow into its own, and is more like a modern action film - for better or worse. Entertainment Weekly called Rogue One an epic heist flick, with a third act being a white-knuckle ride as the movie kicks into hyperdrive. They graded the film a B+.

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Rogue One (subtitled "A Star Wars Story"), is the first in a planned series of Star Wars spin-off films, originally referred to as "anthology films". Rogue One is set shortly before the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, and will follow a group of rebel spies as they attempt to steal the plans for the Galactic Empire's first Death Star superweapon. Filming took place at Elstree Studies near London between August 2015 and February 2016, with reshoots taking place in June 2016. Alexandre Desplat, who previously worked with Edwards on Godzilla was originally slated to score the film, but due to production delays he was no longer available and was replaced by Michael Giacchino once he had finished up on Marvel's Doctor Strange.

    Disney order Rogue One reshoots

    Disney movie executives are so unhappy with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that they have reportedly ordered a four-week long session of reshoots this July in order to improve the upcoming spin-off film following poor screen testing. The rumors were revealed to Page Six, who have previously been quite reliable. Sources claim that Disney bosses were not satisfied with director Gareth Edwards' first cut of Rogue One and are splashing out on the expensive reshoots as they try to resolve the "crisis". Fans were on the whole pleased with the first Rogue One trailer that landed a few months ago, but the film seems to not live up to the hype in it's current state. Whether this report is exaggerated, as movies do often reshoot scenes after filming has ended, or whether Edwards has fallen short of producing a top quality movie remains to be seen. Rogue One is due out on 16 December 2016.

    Rogue One comic cancelled

    It was recently announced at C2E2 that a three-issue comic series by Phil Noto that would tie into Rogue One: A Star Wars Story would be released later this year. Now it appears that Marvel have cancelled the series, with retailers hoping to stock the series having been told that their orders will now not be filled. According to Bleeding Cool, the main reason behind the cancellation is rewrites. With the challenge of writing and illustrating a comic that links directly to a movie that isn't out yet, which has itself undergone reshoots and editing, ensuring a solid story that connects seamlessly has proven to be too much for the comic book creative team within the time and budgetary constraints they were given. Perhaps after Rogue One's release the team will revisit the series to fill in the extra details fans were promised, but until then the comic is no longer available to pre-order.

    Rogue One tie-ins announced at C2E2

    At C2E2 in Chicago this week, Del Rey and Marvel have revealed an accompanying prequel novel and 3-issue comic series to tie-in with upcoming Star Wars spin-off movie Rogue One. Del Rey's Elizabeth Schaefer announced the prequel novel for Rogue One will be called Catalyst and will release in the fall of this year, but sadly this is all we know so far as an unfinished cover was shown and the author's name remains a mystery. Schaefer also revealed a bit of information about July's upcoming second instalment of the Aftermath trilogy, Aftermath: Life Debt - "Before Han can settle down with Leia, he has one last debt to pay. This is a story of our favorite BFFs on Chewie's home planet." She also mentioned that Claudia Gray's novel Bloodline, set before The Force Awakens, focuses on Leia and her role in the New Republic and the rise of the Resistance. Marvel also announced a 3-issue comic series plus a one-shot in October that will provide further backstory for Rogue One.

    Darth Vader 'Dream Team' created?

    One big rumor (and potentially huge Rogue One spoiler) that has been floating around for a while is that Darth Vader may be making an appearance in the first of the spin-off movies. According to Making Star Wars, a 'Darth Vader Dream Team' has been assembled to ensure that the Dark Lord of the Sith's appearance in Rogue One is authentic. Observant fans will have noticed that Darth Vader's armour varies slightly between the Star Wars movies, and the time period of Rogue One means that the Darth Vader costume shown on screen will need to match the original suit seen in 1977, with one of the most noticeable differences being the reddish tint to the eyes of Vader's helmet. Brian Muir, The creator of the original Darth Vader helmet already announced on Twitter that he was involved in Rogue One in November 2015, and although he has made other creations for Star Wars, it's certainly not a stretch to imagine his involvement was necessary for a perfectly recreated Darth Vader. Additionally, rumor has it that James Earl Jones himself will be reprising his role as voice actor for the film. Seeing Darth Vader in Rogue One would certainly make sense, as the film reportedly details the Rebel mission to steal the plans to the first Death Star, and we already know from A New Hope that Darth Vader was in pursuit of these stolen plans.

    Rogue One: Alan Tudyk's role revealed?

    According to reports, Alan Tudyk's role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has been revealed. Needless to say, this article may contain spoilers! Making Star Wars reports that Alan Tudyk's role will be that of an Enforcer Droid, who's appearance is said to resemble a mash-up of Warner Bros.' Iron Giant and EV-9D9 from Return of the Jedi. Rather than the cuteness we saw in BB-8's design for The Force Awakens, Tudyk's Enforcer Droid is an apparent evolution of the Clone Wars era Super Battle Droids, reflecting the grittiness of Rogue One. The Enforcer Droid is apparently an ex-Imperial droid that has been captured and reprogrammed to serve the Rebel Alliance as they carry out their mission to steal the Empire's plans for the dreaded Death Star. For a full description of the character, check out the original article on Making Star Wars. Rogue One is set for release on 16 December 2016.

    Christopher McQuarrie "saved" Rogue One

    According to Birth. Movies. Death. a source has informed them that Christopher McQuarrie was called in to "save" Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This corroborates a Latino Review story from last year which also made this claim. Rogue One was originally scripted by Gary Whitta, but when Whitta moved on to another project Chris Weitz joined the project, stating that "there’s a very strong structure from Gary’s work and that’s a huge advantage". It seems that not all went well, as sources claim that McQuarrie was brought in for at least two weeks to troubleshoot problems with the script and get the film back on track. McQuarrie was previously called in to fix zombie outbreak adaptation World War Z and was also involved in bringing Edge of Tomorrow to where it needed to be. Rogue One is said to be a military focused heist movie about a group of Rebels attempting to steal the plans for the Empire's ultimate weapon, the Death Star. The film is scheduled for release on 16th December 2016.

    Rogue One rumors surface

    New pictures from Pinewood apparently show X-Wing starfighters that will appear in upcoming spin-off movie, Rogue One. The pictures from TMZ show classic Star Wars trilogy style X-wing's with individually distinct engines, unlike the updated versions that appear in The Force Awakens. This fits in the known time period for Rogue One, which is said to include the mission to retrieve the plans to the Empire's first Death Star prior to the original Star Wars movie, A New Hope. Making Star Wars has also reported on some leaked character details, including a character named Galen played by Mads Mikkelsen who may be the Imperial scientist in charge of the Death Star project. Meanwhile, rumors have surfaced that a young Han Solo cameo could happen in the movie, as Disney and Lucasfilm reportedly come close to selecting the actor who will play the smuggler in the later Han Solo movie which is scheduled to release between episodes VIII and IX. According to Variety, producers have a shortlist of actors aged between 17 and 34, including Miles Teller (Divergent), Ansel Elgort (The Fault in our Stars), Scott Eastwood (Gran Torino), Emory Cohen (Smash), and Blake Jenner (Glee) amongst others. A trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars story is also rumored to be attached to the release of Captain America: Civil War later this year, while the film itself is scheduled for release on 16 December 2016.

  21. Star Wars: Rogue One is the first of the Star Wars anthology films that are set aside from the main series of movies, while still residing within the same canon universe, and new rumors have recently come to light that suggest that work is under way to construct a secret rebel base in Cardington Shed 2 in Bedfordshire, England. Shed 2 was the birthplace of early British airships, and in more recent years has acted a stage for filming Inception, Harry Potter, and in 1976 it housed the hidden rebel alliance base on Yavin IV. Leaked images from starwars7news.com appear to show a familiar location taking shape, suggesting that movie history may be about to repeat itself. Will Rogue One take us back to Yavin IV? It certainly looks that way. Other rumors also point to potential Rogue One spoilers, such as Birth.Movies.Death reporting that Darth Vader will make an appearance in the movie although not as it's main protagonist, and Bloody Disgusting say a source has informed them that Ben Mendelsohn will be playing an Imperial Moff who will be the main villian. As for Star Wars Episode VIII, rumor has it that actor Benicio Del Toro, who has recently been seen as The Collector in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, has been approached for the role of a villian. It is expected that the majority of The Force Awakens' new main cast members will be returning for the movie, which is being directed by Rian Johnson and produced by Ram Bergman and Kathleen Kennedy. Rogue One is scheduled for a 16 December 2016 release, while Episode VIII is due on 26 May 2017.
