Today the official teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was released. This was a long teaser (some only last 10 seconds, Cinderella’s teaser for example) so it feels more like a trailer where we already know about how the story could go, who are the heroes, etc. The movie will tell the story of Jyn Erso played by Felicity Jones and her quest to steal the plans for the Death Star. While we do not know all of the character’s identities for sure yet, here are some of the other actors and actresses from the trailer: Genevieve O’Reilly (Mon Mothma), Forest Whitaker, Donnie Yen, Alistair Petrie, Ben Mendelsohn and Diego Luna.
In the teaser, you can see that Jyn will be recruited by Mon Mothma to go on her dangerous mission. It also featured what seemed like the training in the art of combat for the stormtroopers and many intense battle scenes. Many of our old favorites will be back such as the giant ATAT, the Death Star, the Emperor’s Royal Guard, Shadow Troopers and more!

Connecting the Dots

Rogue One will take place chronologically after Episode III, five years after Star Wars Rebels and shortly before the Episode IV. This explains why we don’t see any Bothans in the teaser. They helped to steal the plans for the second Death Star in the Episode IV, which happens only after. Also, the producers confirmed that even if the movie will be close to Star Wars Rebels, the characters from the series will not crossover to the movie (via imdb). They felt like those two stories needed to be built on their own. Fans of the franchise also might be sad to learn that for the first time, John Williams will not be composing a live-action theatrical for the Star Wars.

Speculations

So here are some of the most interesting ones that we would love to see confirmed or not:
  • Bounty Hunter Cad Bane from the Clone Wars could make his movie debut.
  • Hayden Christensen (Anakin in the second trilogy) could appear as Darth Vader with James Earl Jones (Darth Vader’s voice, first trilogy and cartoons) to voice the character.
  • Peter Cushing could be resurrected with the power of CGI and appear in the movie as Grand Moff Tarkin.
  • Jyn Erso could be a reference to Jan Ors from Star Wars: Dark Forces in the first mission to find the plans to the Death Star.
