This time it’s war as a new breed of Star Wars prequel gets gritty...
We try and keep calm as we analyse the latest Star Wars trailer.
That Stormtrooper tank is much more Earth-like artillery than we’re used to in Star Wars – no legs, doesn’t look like it’s levitating...
This is Jedha, a Jedi holy land – yet another desert planet in Star Wars. Given the Empire’s feelings about the Jedi, expect it to be a target.
This trailer suggests that Diego Luna’s Captain Cassian Andor assembles the group of Rebel fighters, a fact that’s been hinted previously.
This is the new U-Wing, which appears to be taking off from Yavin IV. This could well be the Rebels’ main mode of transportation.
This is the first time we’ve heard Alan Tudyk’s K-2SO talk. His assessment of chances of success at the end of the trailer is very C-3PO.
Question: why is the Death Star upside down? Is it just a nice camera angle? (After all, there’s no upside down in space.)
There’s a smile from Saw Gerrera here. Does he see Jyn as a disciple? It’s also been revealed that the suit is keeping him alive, Vader-style.
Is this Jyn going to full-on confront Darth Vader? IS IT? She looks like she means serious business as she faces off against a TIE Fighter.
Someone fires a missile at an AT-ACT – if projectiles have so much effect on them, why didn’t someone use them in the Battle of Hoth?
Obligatory Vader shot! We love how the wall graphics are so faithful to the original movie. And we’re very, very excited.
“They destroyed our home!” We’re assuming that home is on Jedha, though whether the Death Star is involved remains to be seen...
This wonderful eclipse shot suggests Jedha could have been targeted by the Empire as the location for a certain weapons test...
