After the formation of the Galactic Empire, the Rebel Alliance recruits Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) to work with Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and a team to steal the Death Star plans.This is the fourth live action film to include AT-AT walkers, with the first being Episode V during the assault on Hoth, the second in Episode VI on Endor, and the third in Episode VII being an immobilized unit on Jakku.
There is a long list of actors rumored to be attached this film: Joel Edgerton, Dominic West, Mark Strong, Taylor Kitsch, Joel Kinnaman, Sam Worthington, Charlie Hunnam, Aaron Paul, Edgar Ramírez Sam Claflin and Gerard Butler.
Forest Whitaker character is Saw Gerrera, a veteran from the Clone Wars. The character first appeared on Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) during the 5th season. This will aslo be the first time in the Star Wars franchise that a character created for an animated series ( Clone Wars) will appear on a live action film. I was excited when I heard we would get a new trailer today and this one did not disappoint. We got loads of new footage and an even greater sense of the film.
This trailer played perfectly into the hands of both the super fans and the people who may not be too familiar with the Star Wars films, if these people still exist. The trailer does a great job at explaining the relationship between Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and her father (Ben Mendelsohn). We get to see how the two are separated and the major plot point that in fact her father ends up becoming Director Orson Krennic, the creator of the infamous Death Star. Which then leads us to the whole point of the film [spoiler alert], how the Rebellion are able to get their hands on the Death Star plans which eventually allows them to destroy it in Episode IV.
This is a great all around trailer and if there was one trailer people were to see for this film, I would pick this one. Vast majority of fans (myself included) will see this film no matter what trailer Disney releases, but it is those “other” people who they must convince to spend their money and go to a theater.
