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.

Set shortly before the events of A New Hope, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story follows a group of resistance fighters who set out to steal the Death Star plans.
Although Rogue One began shooting last summer (before The Force Awakens even hit theaters), it’s only now that we’re finally getting the very first glimpse of footage from the new movie. Yes, the very first Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer is here, and you can check it out after the jump.

Before Gareth Edwards‘ breakout directorial debut, Monsters, even opened in theaters, he had another project in the works. Edwards was set to direct what was described as an “epic human story, set in a futuristic world without humanity.” The director instead moved on to make Godzilla, which led to him directing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Edwards’ schedule is pretty crowded at the moment, and he’s already set to direct Godzilla 2 next. But producer Timur Bekmambetov (Ben-Hur) is hopeful that the earlier Gareth Edwards project will one day get made.
