New Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer Leaks From Star Wars Celebration

19 July 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Much to the surprise of no one, it appears that the new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the very same one that was showcased behind-closed-doors at Star Wars Celebration Europe, has leaked online.

Remember, it’s a bootleg, so expect a fairly shaky experience. Nevertheless, it certainly chimes with last week’s trailer description, culminating in the reveal of Darth Vader. Well, we say reveal; James Earl Jones’ scenery-chewing big bad is glimpsed in a reflection of what we assume to be the shiny floor of the Death Star itself. But make no mistake, that iconic, rasping breathing apparatus can be heard loud and clear.

It’s impossible to offer a fair assessment of this low-res version, of course, but it does include all-new footage of Jyn Erso as a youngster, growing up under the shadow of an Empire that’s »

Evidence Mounts That Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Won’t Feature Opening Crawl

In branching off from Disney and Lucasfilm’s core saga, director Gareth Edwards has been tasked with lending Rogue One: A Star Wars Story an identity of its own, effectively diving deep into the period betwixt Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

Part and parcel of that creative approach will be to put some distance between Edwards’ Anthology movie and the Star Wars movies of old – The Force Awakens included – and could result in Rogue One cutting out a key element of this most prized universe: the opening crawl.

Appearing at last weekend’s Star Wars Celebration Europe, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy was quizzed about the crawl, which looks set to be left on the editing room floor come December: “You know, we’re in the midst of talking about it, »

Rogue One: Notes from Star Wars Celebration

Rogue One: Notes from Star Wars CelebrationRogue One: Notes from Star Wars CelebrationJason Gorber7/18/2016 11:25:00 Am

With Rogue One just months away, fans of the greater Star Wars universe are slowly receiving information about the first of the “Anthology” films, which are standalone stories that will be peppered between the numbered “Saga” films that tie more directly to the original George Lucas story-line.

One of the things that made the 1977 original Star Wars so epic was the crawl that alluded to a larger context in which the tale was being told. The opening lines mention that during "Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire.”, and that “during the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, the Death Star, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet.”

Rogue One: Mads Mikkelsen’s Character Galen Erso Finally Revealed

15 July 2016 10:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Let it be known that Star Wars mania has gripped London, and though the annual event stands as a celebration to Lucasfilm’s prestigious franchise across the board, there’s one headliner that’s threatening to steal the show.

We are, of course, referring to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Gareth Edwards’ militaristic offshoot that took budding fans behind-the-scenes earlier today with an inspired featurette. Teasing trouble in paradise (the alien planet of Scarif, in this instance), it showcased new footage of Edwards’ ragtag group of anti-heroes as they hitch a plan to steal blueprints for the Death Star.

But one character that remained on the sidelines was Galen Erso, Mads Mikkelsen’s rogue scientist and father to Felicity Jones’ lead heroine, Jyn Erso. Until now, at least.

‘Rogue One’ Trailer: 5 Things We Saw In Brand New (And Still Unreleased) Star Wars Celebration Footage

15 July 2016 9:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This year’s Star Wars Celebration capped off its first day in London with a jam-packed “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” panel that featured stars like Felicity Jones, Diego Luna and Riz Ahmed taking the stage to chat alongside director Gareth Edwards and Lucasfilm head honcho Kathleen Kennedy. The event was easily the most aniticpated event of the day, if not the entire convention, and one that was made available to the masses via live stream.

But there was one thing that not everyone could see, a brand new “Rogue One” trailer that was only shown to the London audience in attendance at the event. And while that trailer won’t be released online for a currently undetermined amount of time (Kennedy took great pleasure in introducing it to the audience, all while begging that no one record it), IndieWire was live on site and caught the entire thing in person. »

‘Rogue One’: ‘Star Wars’ Film Releases New Footage, Poster

15 July 2016 9:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” footage and an official poster were released at Star Wars Celebration Europe on Friday.

The video clip features snapshots of the film, with behind-the-scenes footage and voiceover. The poster shows a battle taking place on water and land with the Death Star fading into the sky.

The poster includes the tagline: “A Rebellion Built on Hope.”

London — Before proceedings began, emcee Gwendoline Christie paid tribute to the victims of the Nice attacks. Akin to a moment in “Casablanca,” pockets of the audience broke out into a version of ‘La Marseillaise’ broke out before the 4,000-person crowd bowed their heads in quiet reflection.

“Rogue One” director Gareth Edwards, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and key cast were also on hand to give fans a first look at Darth Vader in the film’s second trailer, which premiered to fans at London’s ExCel centre on Friday evening. »

First Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Featurette Teases A Rebellion Built On Hope

15 July 2016 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con getting underway, Disney and Lucasfilm have gotten the party started a little earlier with the rip-roaring new featurette for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Clocking in at around three minutes in length, the all-new sizzle reel arrives in tandem with Star Wars Celebration taking place in London. Those who aren’t able to attend the event in person will be pleased to note that the Rogue One panel will be streamed online, meaning you can keep pace with all of the Star Wars trinkets from the comfort of your own home.

When it comes to this latest trailer, ardent fans will no doubt comb through each and every frame, but it’s interesting to see the ways in which Gareth Edwards’ prequel has been tweaked ever so slightly in light of those reshoots.

Go Behind-the-Scenes of ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ With 3-Minute Featurette

15 July 2016 8:33 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With recent news of an appearance by Darth Vader, more insight into the film’s style, and a batch of images, the anticipation for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story continues to rise. Today, a new featurette for the Star Wars spin-off — following a group of rebels with a secret plan to destroy the Death Star — has been released during Star Wars Celebration and is now available online. There’s the sense, as usual, that this thing is big and perhaps more than just another way to keep the name Star Wars on the mind (akin to a standalone Marvel film between Avengers) until the next massive “saga” installment.

With what looks to be sweeping cinematography akin to the main installments combined with Gareth Edwards‘ more handheld style utilized in Monsters and Godzilla, Rogue One looks to have a unique feel once compared to its big brother. With a cast led by Felicity Jones, »

Disneyland Shows Off New Look At Ambitious ‘Star Wars’ Land Addition

12 July 2016 9:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In his dedication speech at the opening of Disneyland, Walt Disney said that he hopes the institution “will be a source of joy and inspiration for the world,” and over the past 60 years, that wish has come true. With each new addition to the park, Disneyland becomes a more inclusive attraction that seeks to reach the most people everywhere. Case in point: Disneyland will soon unveil a new “Star Wars”-themed land at their Anaheim park. Deadline reports that they’ve already started prepping the area for attractions, including a Vr-controlled Millennium Falcon, Han Solo’s famous spaceship. It will be the largest “land” at the park. Check out an artist’s rendering of the park below.

5 July 2016 6:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We are only about five months away from having a brand new live-action Star Wars movie in theaters. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set for a release this December and we are already pretty pumped for the prospect of a new Star Wars movie that takes place outside of the episodic storyline, but we are about to get a whole lot more excited. As it turns out, it looks like we are getting a brand new, full-length trailer for Rogue One next week.

James Cameron Reveals Why He Thinks ‘The Force Awakens’ Doesn’t Live Up To George Lucas’s Vision

28 June 2016 2:04 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It seemed like we were all on a Star Wars high when “The Force Awakens” came out. But after the high faded, the problems unmasked themselves, with many people pointing out some of the film’s flaws — a group that now includes James Cameron, who made some subtle comments regarding why he thinks the J.J. Abrams film might not fit too well into the “Star Wars” universe.

What you need to know about Darth Vader and ‘Rogue One’

Star Wars fans were treated to a lot of new info this week about our next big-screen journey to a galaxy far, far away. Between Entertainment Weekly scoring a lot of Star Wars scoops and Mads Mikkelsen not giving a bantha’s ass what the overlords at Lucasfilm will do if he spills all the spoilers, we’ve been getting a clearer picture of who’s who in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Check out the video below for everything there is to know now about the key players in Rogue One, including a certain Sith Lord and one character plucked from animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars: So, yes, Darth Vader will be in this movie.

Stormtrooper Toy Will Play an Important Role in Star Wars: Rogue One

24 June 2016 3:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, many fans were concerned that the first Star Wars spinoff movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, was in big trouble after reports that massive reshoots were necessary. However, thanks to a new batch of photos and information about the movie, hype is at a new high for the next Disney Star Wars movie. But there is something very interesting that doesn't seem to be getting talked about. As it turns out, Star Wars toys are going to be a big part of the plot in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

EW recently released a batch of 16 new photos from Rogue One and since they heavily featured a lot of the new characters and some fancy looking new stormtroopers, it was easy to get distracted by what was on the surface. One of the photos prominently features the new Death Troopers, and there is something very interesting »

Star Wars: Saw Gerrera Blows Rogue One Wide Open

24 June 2016 1:38 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Whew! What a week for mostly official Rouge One: A Star Wars Story dispatches! Granted, most of these are from Entertainment Weekly and not Lucasfilm proper, but that doesn’t mean they are any less official. We’ve officially entered the time period where it was silly that we thought Kaytoo Esso was K-250, it’s a more enlightened time.

Even though all the character names and photos are super cool and worthy of individual attention, the main two purposes in the sudden dump of Rogue One info were to make the general public feel better about the widely reported reshoots and to tell everyone that Darth Vader was indeed in this film.

Turns out all the Darth Vader clues the internet had been hunting ended up paying off, and the rumors of a ruthless and frightening Vader’s return to screen ended up being true. Like we summed up for you earlier this week, »

Yet More Beautiful Images For Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Surface

24 June 2016 11:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Hot off the presses and onto the interwebs, yet another batch of images for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story have found their way online, this time offering a peek behind the scenes on Gareth Edwards’ militaristic spinoff.

Arguably the most interesting pick of the bunch is the still image of a helicopter capturing the maritime action as a small squadron of Rebel fighters storm the beach. Doubling down on relatively low-key battle sequences, Entertainment Weekly notes that Edwards is adopting an approach that injects a visceral intensity to Rogue One that we arguably haven’t seen in the Star Wars universe to date.

In related news, EW also quizzed Edwards about those hotly contested reshoots. Singing from the same hymn sheet as Mads Mikkelsen, the filmmaker conceded that overhauling a handful of scenes was always in the cards, and the »
