Cool seeing Mon Mothma.

Is the lead girl Rey's mother, perhaps? :?

I have to say I'm genuinely intrigued and excited.

There are stuff that I'm not quite fond of on first impression: Buzz lightyear Ghost dog whittaker looks straight from the superhero movies I never go see. Kung fu Donnie Yen looks a bit too much like action movies silliness.

I've long been prepared to accept that there will be these influences to a degree in the new SW, to put it simply: because Mainstream, because Disney, because Lucasfilm folks clearly love what I call Marvel crap etc... I have to respect that they do and that the superhero action stuff seems to be a part of americans culture that I just don't get along well with... eh, no big deal I'll get new Star Wars.

That being said, a good, good bunch of pretty nice stuff:

• Yavin 4 seems extremely faithful in terms of look and feel.

• Despite the modern action movies esthetics, there are shots like the stormtroopers in the sort of Lothal marketplace that looks very good and classic, I was concerned about the esthetics and I think overall it can end up just fine.

• Mon Mothma! It's the actress from ROTS right?? She looks spot on!!
• I expect the beach scene to be full of saving private ryan references, I think it's promising.

• There seem to be moral questions SW fashion, not too much good vs bad. I bet and hope they will apply what they experimented in the fabulous and beloved clones-centric arcs from TCW.

• Overall it leaves me wanting to learn more, I'm definitely curious. Exciting day, certainly puts me in a nice mood.

At this stage, 8 months out, I am more excited for this film than I was Ep. 7.

Really good teaser. I was pretty on the fence about this movie, but there was a lot to like in this teaser. The "I rebel" line was a bit corny, but it wouldn't be the first line goofy dialog showed up in a Star Wars movie. Loved the shots of the classic Star Destroyers and the AT-ATs.

I like it. Some of the scenes seem 'lifeless'. I dont know, dull or flat? I wanted more grid, dirt if that makes sense? Im sure they are still tweaking of course. Not feeling the female lead in this teaser. But love just HOW accurate it looks like from the ANH timeline. I mean the star destroyer holy shit. It looks perfect. The story line is what intrigues esp. after living with ANH for so many years. And the complain about Donnie Yen already. Oh Come on. You really think they hire him for his acting? He's a bad ass and a little martial arts in a SW surely can't hurt.

Yen's character is blind. He could be a force wielder a la Maz Kanata and not a Jedi (Remember no Jedis in this movie). I can't wait to see him kick stormtrooper ass with a wooden stick! It's like ANH on steroids. CAN'T WAIT!!!

While the story and mythology of the Jedi will always be fascinating to me, it's incredibly refreshing to have a feature film in which they have no presence.

December can't come soon enough!

Gareth Edwards, the director in the chair for Rogue One, is shooting the movie – at least in part – with a large format Alexa 65 digital camera, at a 6K resolution. The ultra-wide digital format has been created to be comparable with the 65mm film used for IMAX capture, which could make Rogue One look spectacular in one of the technology's massive theatres.

So, while the new trilogy might be looking for the same sort of old-school look as the originals – instead of the too-clean, ultra-precise look of Episode II and III – the anthology movies could well have their own distinct look and feel, all provided by their use of new digital formats.

I still say 90 some percent of the public cannot tell what was shot digitally and what was shot on film.

I know I'm going against the grain here but it seems like my worst fears have been realized.

The trouble begins right at the start. A sulky piano, hand-held shot and doleful glare from our female protagonist (ironically, all elements capturing exactly how I feel about this mismatched effort). For all its flaunting of familiar characters, costumes, locations and vehicles, this is decidedly not Star Wars. It's cool-to-be-hardcore fan filmmaking run amok without an ounce of the romanticism and promise of fun that makes Star Wars so unique and endearing.

After his Godzilla, I knew this was coming. Saving Private Death Star Plans. :vsuicide:

Speaking of stylistic departures: there shouldn't be an opening crawl for this one. I'd be okay with a "News On the March" announcer a la The Clone Wars movie. But, a traditional opening would be best.

Did the Ewok movies have crawls?

The Ewok movies weren't ever released in theaters either. TV movies. As for something being "Not Star Wars" I've always wondered, what does that mean? Does it mean nothing can be done any differently than was done in EP4 thru 6? Seems like it does to many people.

Each new canon SW Marvel comic has a crawl so I'd be fine with this movie having a crawl as well.

They were made for TV movies. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caravan_o ... _Adventure I am not saying they didn't show them at some theaters somewhere. But they were made for TV.

I liked Anthology better but a SW story is fine. Crawl or no crawl. Personally Id like to see no crawl to separate itself from the Trilogy's we know. But I wouldnt mind they trying a new opening concept meaning that every 'sw story' movie would begin in the same style. There are just so many cool possibilities.

In the end, really who cares as long as RO is a decent movie. After TFA I really want it to be good. :)

Since anything goes, I'd like to see a Star Wars musical where the characters occasionally break out into song and dance. Plus, the Force theme could use some sprucing up with some lyrics.

What about a mumblecore Star Wars film?

Hey, as long as they're good movies! :)

Cute.

I meant more of a full-fledged embodiment of other genres since it seems we're now fine with genre-bending.

Then again, Star Wars has always been a pastiche of various genres. But in this respect, RO looks fairly and boringly one-note. However, if there's anything as unexpected and interesting as a musical number in it, ala Return of the Jedi, maybe I'll change my tune a bit.

So I've been seeing The Stupid on the internet wondering why they recast Rey's character for Rogue One, or how far after ROJ this film is set.... :whateva:

I feel like an opening crawl is necessary, to inform the "casual fan" about where we are in the timeline. I'd also like to see that consistency from the episodic films. There ought to be one or two common elements at work here, IMO.

It's a good trailer and I'm more excited for it than I was before I saw it, which was hardly so.

However, the trailers and marketing need to teach the audience where this movie is on the timeline. It would be smart to show clips from ANH with text that explains "...before A New Hope rescued the Galaxy..." Or some such. The average person isn't smart enough to tie their own shoes let alone figure out where Rogue One fits in with the new set of Star Wars movies.

On the crawl/no crawl debate, I don't know which camp I fall into yet. I kind of want the STAR WARS + crawl to be unique to the episodic films to structurally distinguish them from the standalones. They don't need to follow the same conventions and I like that about the idea of standalones.

Rogue One only needs a one sentence introduction via an inter-title or subtitle. During the opening scene, movie could state that: "The events of this story take place shortly before Episode 4: A New Hope."

Hey The_Somnambulist: while your listing dream projects, why not hope for a film version of the entire ballet from ROTS? During the movie, the director could cut to audience members for reaction shots like in Bergman's adaption of The Magic Flute. Either that or it could be shot from a first-person p.o.v. on a GoPro.

Ho, ho, ho! I was being sarcastic.

But seriously, these Star Wars Stories beg an important question about identity: What is Star Wars with all these different directors and approaches in play? Is it now this amorphous creative playground where, as I stated, anything goes as long as the catered-to fans jive with it and part with their dough over it? What's keeping boundaries from being crossed? Do fans just want what other :cool: and :breasts: (sexy) genre-filmmaking has to offer? Isn't what made Star Wars a successful, unique and valuable franchise in the first place its iconoclastic defiance of prevailing trends and the offering of something fresh, sourced from an oasis of independent and rebellious creative minds?

My answers to these questions ain't so optimistic.

I'd love, love, LOVE a Ben Kenobi movie. A quiet drama like The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Have it be about the Force. Ben with a gross, matted beard racked with guilt in his tiny little house. Venturing out only to manually repair a moisture vaporator. Not talking to Yoda, Qui-Gon, or Bail Organa and the Alliance. Send a Jedi Hunter (maybe played by Jeffrey Wright) who knows Vader is Anakin to sniff around Tattooine. Have Ben take the blame for a disaster at a village, earning him "crazy old wizard" status. Keep it sparse and desolate. Yeah, I've thought about this a lot. Hardly "A Star Wars Story" though...no wars among the stars. But McGregor is willing to do revisit the character, why not let him? Not make my movie exactly, but a Ben Kenobi movie.
