rogue one trailer breakdown

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has been flying under the radar, waiting for everyone to fully exhaust themselves on Star Wars: The Force Awakens before revealing itself. And oh boy, has it revealed itself. The first trailer is here and it’s a doozy, filled with all kinds of incredible imagery, promising characters, and, for the lack of a more elegant phrase, really cool stuff. And you know what that means – it’s time for a frame-by-frame trailer breakdown.

One word of warning: this article will dive into various internet rumors that have circulated this project for the past year. Some may be true. Some may not. I recommend bringing a pinch of salt along for this particular journey. If you want to know nothing about the film, you should probably turn around now.

Rey's Force Vision Recut

Perhaps the most intriguing part of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the vision that Rey (Daisy Ridley) has when she touches Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber after the Force beckons her to it in the basement of Maz Kanata’s castle. It raised many questions, most of which we still don’t know the answer to. Hopefully that will change in Star Wars: Episode VIII.

But what if Rey’s vision was less of a vision and more of a nightmare? Sure, the vision itself has some disorienting and terrifying moments for Rey herself, but what if it was a nightmare for the audience as well? That’s exactly what one has done by having some of the more cringeworthy parts of the prequels invade the vision. It’s pretty scary.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Life-Size AT-ST

There are plenty of Star Wars fans out there who have made their own custom lightsabers, blasters, Jedi robes, LEGO sets, action figures, and countless more creations. But one fan has put them all to shame by building a life-size AT-ST (or All Terrain Scout Transport) from Return of the Jedi in his backyard. Thankfully, he doesn’t live in an area where Ewoks have smashed its head with a couple swinging logs, so it’s still standing strong, despite the fact that the Empire has fallen.
