Watch: New Featurette for 'Rogue One' with Director Gareth Edwards
"It's a whole world I've been thinking about for quite a long time…" Disney + Lucasfilm have unveiled one more exciting new featurette for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This video goes behind-the-scenes of the production with director Gareth Edwards, who talks about how this is like "the world's greatest toy set" and how it's like being a kid again. Oh to visit this set would have been a dream come true. I wish there was more behind-the-scenes footage in this, but I do remember we had that other Celebration reel earlier this year that showed quite a bit. It's also interesting to see them showing the direct connections between A New Hope and Rogue One, but makes sense. Can't wait to see this, it's going to be exhilarating. Almost time.
Here's the new behind-the-scenes featurette for Gareth Edwards' Rogue One, direct from SW's YouTube:
And here's a new Dolby Cinema poster for Rogue One, which is one of the best posters for this movie yet:
"Rogue One takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope and will be a departure from the saga films but have elements that are familiar to the Star Wars universe," says Kathleen Kennedy. Rogue One tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. It's being directed by English filmmaker Gareth Edwards, of the movies Monsters and Godzilla previously. The screenplay is credited to Chris Weitz (About a Boy, The Golden Compass, Cinderella) based on a story by John Knoll and Gary Whitta. Disney will release Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in theaters everywhere starting December 16th, 2016 this year. For more Star Wars news, click here. Are you ready?

I so hope this is good. Looking forward to seeing how they doing a few things differently since this is the first movie under the SW story banner. Mainly, the opening. Will there be a crawl? Will we get the usual main fanfare? (Im guessing we will). Very curious about it all.

Instead of "during, the battle Rebel spies..." It should have said "during the battle, Rebel minorities..."

How is this story any different than episode 4?
