The Force Awakens was the film that millions of Star Wars fans were waiting and praying for, and luckily, it’s the beginning of a new series of Star Wars films. Even though Episode VIII won’t be released until December 2017, we’ll have another Star Wars film in the meantime – Rogue One.
Rogue One is the first film of the Star Wars Anthology series, a spin-off trilogy. Gareth Edwards (director of Monsters, and Godzilla) is helming the film, with a cast featuring Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker, Ben Mendelsohn, and Mads Mikkelsen.
Many were speculating that the trailer would be released on The Force Awakens Blu-Ray, but Disney have just released the trailer online. Those YouTube views make for great PR, y’know.
Rogue One will be released on December 16th 2016, and is due to feature a cameo from ‘Young Han Solo’. Last we heard, it was going to be either Taron Egerton, Alden Ehrenreich, Jack Reynor or Emory Cohen.
The next Star Wars Anthology film will be a ‘Young Han Solo’ movie in May 2018, followed by a Boba Fett movie in 2020. Awesome stuff!
