This is a no-brainer, but you're right, it is indeed beautiful.......she's beautiful.
Reminds me of Emily Blunt, let's hope she's as good.

Saw some trailer or preview on that TV show they did the other day - Secrets of The Force Awakens.
One character really looked interesting, not in a Jar Jar way. He was old looking, a gunner like in a helicopter, and he laughed uproariously. I still don't know what the story line is, tho.

How can you shoot Jawas and Ewoks?

Easy! You just don't lead 'em as much!



The basic storyline is actually covered in the opening crawl of the original Star Wars movie.

Saw a trailer in cinema, didn't make enough sense of it.

Is Forrest Whitaker playing a Rebel or Alliance guy?

It's the story of how the Rebels got the Death Star plans just before the original Star Wars movie.

Here's some info about Forest Whitaker's character.

Thanks. Definitely on the Rebel half of the spectrum.

Just now while typing at the Public Library computer, I glance up and the end of a bookshelf has a picture or small poster. At about the height of the third shelf of the bookcase is a small Imperial Storm Trooper, pulling out a book from the second shelf.
In the same Library system, the Central has near a desk a poster with Obi-Wan-Kenobi "This is not the printer you are looking for."

I'm no Star Wars expert, but I saw Episode VII, and this new movie looks a whole lot better than VII.

I'm scared that they're just going to make him C3PO in a new body. The couple lines we got were pure C3PO.

I'm still completely underwhelmed with this. I'm not seeing anything that looks epic or exciting. It looks completely generic like they just threw a bunch of scifi scripts in a blender and just ran with whatever came out.

Scifi scripts? Heck, looks like a straight up Dirty Dozen ripoff...errr, I mean homage, set in the Star Wars 'verse.

They even made Jediism a generic religion, with a sacred planet called Jedha. As Saudi Arabia (with crude oil) is to Muslims, so is Jedha (with Kyber crystals for lightsabers) to Jedi:

Rogue One is messing with the Force

There are issues in realigning previously nebulous Star Wars theological concepts along the lines of a traditional religion.

ious-storylines


There certainly seems to have been a subtle expansion of Jediism (if anyone has a better term to describe it do let me know) in The Force Awakens, from an elite religious order exclusive to a tiny minority of individuals capable of wielding the Force to a more outward-looking cult that’s open to including those who don’t benefit directly from its existence.

The director of Rogue One said
Quote:

The Force is basically in Star Wars like a religion, and they’re losing their faith in the period that we start the movie. We were trying to find a physical location we could go to that would speak to the themes of losing your faith and the choice between letting the Empire win, or evil win, and good prevailing. It got embodied in this place we called Jedha.

In a wider level, there must be loads of people who just believe in the Jedi and believe in the Force and have been affected by it. If it’s a really ancient religion, as Obi-Wan Kenobi said, it’s got to exist in thousands or millions of people in the galaxy.

Rogue One seems to be betting heavily on Star Wars fans buying into this new, expanded take on the Force. There are surely real issues in realigning previously nebulous Star Wars theological concepts along the lines of traditional religion.

Jediism had exclusivity, until now. Unlike Christianity, Islam or Buddhism, you can’t really be part of it unless you are Force-sensitive. So why would Jedis need followers in the first place? There has never been any sense in Star Wars that one side of the Force triumphs over the other thanks to its more numerous flock, so why bother to recruit?

In the new Rogue One trailer, we see Donnie Yen’s monkish Chirrut Imwe launching himself into battle with a fatalistic cry of Jediist piety. “I fear nothing,” he tells an unseen opponent. “All is as the Force wills it!”
To quote Harrison Ford’s Han Solo in The Force Awakens: “That’s not how the Force works!”

Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi did not tell Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back to throw himself, lemming-like, at Darth Vader’s lightsaber, and hope the frickin’ midi-chloreans wanted him to live. Rather they suggested that if the young wannabe Jedi did not pursue the right path, in this case completing his training, he would ramp up his chances of defeat, of being turned to the dark side himself.

There are two explanations for Imwe’s determination to see the Force as a fatalistic religion. The first is bad screenwriting, while the second suggests that followers of Jediism in the galaxy at large don’t really have a clue what they are signing up to. Rather than religious puritans, they are just fanboys who have seen the odd lightsaber battle and reckon it might be cool to tag along.

2nd Trailer dropped:

https://www.engadget.com/2016/10/13/the-second-trailer-for-rogue-one-i
s-here/?sr_source=Twitter


Disney has dropped the latest trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, showing more of the main characters and building on details revealed in the last one. The film -- which arrives on December 16th -- is set in the time before the original 1977 film, as the rebels seek the Death Star plans. Felicity Huffman's character, aided by Diego Luna's Cassian Andor, is actually looking for her own father, who is "critical to the development of the super-weapon." There's a more eye-candy, too, including an AT-ST walker, more ships, a better look at Darth Vader and ... well, just watch it already.

Generally speaking, if no back story is given, a fine tribute to another movie-director - story, what ever, can be seen as just taking a cheap, quick short cut and doing what someone else has done before. I think it's awesome, though I can see how others might not.

I do hope this movie delivers.

edited for readability.



Also, I thank G for making clear that there are spoilers in the clip. I think I am going to avert myself from too many spoilers, and I think I will enjoy the film just fine when it is released - I can always watch it again if I don't catch it all the first time through. I am becoming afraid that too much spoilers will detract from the film which was created.
