Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - 1st impressions

After watching the trailer a dozen times, like many of you, I went through some frames to spot some familiarities. Before I share what it pleased my eye, it´s important to say that concerning "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", I´m pretty much the amateur. The reason... None! I simply decided to embrace Rogue One as a fresh approach to the Star Wars Universe, so I decided not to read, learn or watch anything related to it until today, so I could be absolutely baffled! So far, it´s working.

So let´s dig in!

"Rebel" Diego Luna seems to study Felicity Jones (Jyn Erso) as Mon Mothma explains her many "abilities".

Yes, she rebels! And we like it.

Mon Mothma´s (played by Genevieve O´Reilly) smile says it all!

This frame of the Death Star is mind blowing! The scale of it is simply astonishing.

The familiar translucent Rebel screens are everywhere. 

Rebels and more Rebels getting ready. The "usual" type of Rebel base seems to be part of Rogue One  too - forest world, under an ancient construction, with dark rooms full of translucent screens. 

I wish I knew who this Imperial is... The white outfit approach seems a perfect fit.

Forest Whitaker! I´m so curious to see if his role will continue in the next movies (stories type ones).

Kick ass Trooper!

These Troopers seem equipped for a Forest type terrain, pretty much like the 41st Elite Corps in the Battle of Kashyyyk.

Blind Jedi with a stick? Was he the one to crash land that X-Wing back there? I bet he´ll kick the butt of all these Stormtroopers.

More dark Troopers... Are they Shadow Troopers? I hope so :)

This spaceship is too similar to Kylo Ren´s vessel in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". Did he stole the idea from a previous Sith wannabe?

Emperor´s Royal Guards! This has to be something awesome... Are we standing before a new Sith? Or an already known Dark Lord?... I say option 2. I wish Palpatine or Vader popped from there...

AT-AT Walkers in a caribbean background? Coolness! I wonder if this Walker shooting up these Rebels is Blizzard 1... maybe we get to see General Veers again.

Now this is the image that got me totally hooked! Will Jyn Erso become an Imperial or is she simply on a mission, as Mon Mothma states in the early seconds of the trailer? She has some Japanese inspired gear (or is she ready to fly a Tie Fighter?), something that seems to be part of the whole movie with some very interesting characters being added.

Have you guys realized that we will have at least 1 Star Wars movie per year in the near future? How far was this a few years ago?...

If only December was tomorrow...

I would love to hear from you, let´s discuss this! Can´t wait to hear your opinions about this new movie and your general idea about the new "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" trailer.

May the Force be with you all!

The base looks like it on yavin 4. That outfit she is wearing in the last frame looks like a tie pilots outfit, without the helmet and breathing apparatus. This trailer has me pumped. All those ATAT, is just way too cool..Something that I've always wanted to see.

Great to have your feedback!

It really seems Yavin 4, just wondering for how long the Rebels had that base running there. Not sure about the timeline, how long is Rogue One before Episode IV... Must be pretty much in the time frame, though Mon Mothma seems much younger.

The Tie Pilot gear is so cool! Wish I knew if she is on the mission they talk about or if she turned Imperial.

I hope to see more AT-AT action in Rogue One, and I´m very curious to see which new ships and vehicles will they show us.
