    SCROLL DOWN FOR OFFICIAL TRAILER

    As I have been a massive Star Wars geek for practically my entire life, I felt that an official thread for tomorrow's Rogue One full trailer reveal was necessary Will we see the return of Darth Vader? I truly hope so!

    Teaser Trailer:



    Are you looking forward to Rogue One? Will it be better than Episode 7? Also if you have any thoughts on any of the characters then feel free to discuss!

    Also if you want to talk about anything Star Wars related then feel free, e.g. How much EA screwed up Battlefront :rolleyes:

    Definitely! I wasn't sure how great it was going to be, but I think Disney are doing a good job - not understanding the hate towards them

    Agreed. I really like the new camera shots they've got going, like the close up of tie fighter near the end of the trailer

    Anyone notice how Forest Whitaker's character has shaved head in the teaser and then grey hair in the official trailer

    As both a fan of Star Wars & war films then I'm definitely interested.

    Although, saying that, Star Wars has always borrowed bits from War Films - Episode 4's trench run is similar to the Dambusters while the X-Wings skimming above the lake in Episode 7 with John Williams' excellent score in the background feels straight out of a war film too.

    Yeah definitely - I don't think they shy away from it either though. I mean wasn't the Empire meant to be based on the Nazis? They've basically just added space factor to war, so really it should be Space Wars Not as catchy though

    Will be a sad day when John Williams passes - he's made some fantastic music!

    I think, as Brits, we're meant to associate the Empire with the Nazis but I think for Americans they associate the Imperials with the British Empire.
    A lot Imperial officers seem to speak the Queen's English afterall!

    But I don't have a problem with that as Hollywood loves British villains. In fact, I'm amazed that the 2 leads in the Force Awakens were British & as is the lead in Rogue One. Maybe us Brits aren't just playing the bad guys anymore.

    That's very true, I hadn't thought about it like that!

    Maybe I am getting really sick of people complaining about two women holding the leads for the latest films. At the end of the day, who cares! Grinds my gears

    I'm hoping they don't use him as a throwaway character, putting him in for nostalgia sake
