I love the direction this film is going - the new trailer / behind the scenes footage really makes this stand out as putting the War in Star Wars. While I enjoy the fantasy and sci-fi aspects as much as anyone, giving the film a bit of an edge is OK with me.

Official synopsis and teaser reveled at the Star Wars Celebration. Apparently Rogue One will follow the rebel resistance as they steal the plans for the first Death Star. Still early as Felicity Jones is still the only certified cast member - but we'll see if expanded universe figure Kyla Katarn makes an appearance (probably not - but who knows).

The first Star Wars spinoff film has been announced with a release date of Dec. 16, 2016. Not much is known at this point other than Gareth Edwards (Monsters, the recent Godzilla reboot) is directing and that Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) has been cast.It will also be the first film in the Star Wars canon not to be scored by John Williams, as Alexandre Desplat (who just won an Academy Award for his score in The Grand Budapest Hotel) will be composing the music. While I will certainly miss Williams, Desplat seems like a solid choice - as he has provided some big dramatic scores - including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2, Argo, The Queen, Zero Dark Thirty, Godzilla and this year's Imitation Game and Unbroken.Some concept art has been released, but the story is still a mystery other than it seems to involve more of the rank and file soldiers as opposed to Boba Fett or a young Han Solo (as was rumored) - still, we'll see how this turns out, but color me intrigued.
