I’ve never been a fan of the advertising campaigns for the newer films. They just never seemed too… “Star Wars-y”. I’m a bit old school, I guess. I like to see my trailers (and TV Spots) with the “Star Wars” music blaring, exploding action, fan favorites front and center. These new spots just don’t do it for me. They seem too passive. So I’ve tried to course correct it.
Ever since I was a kid I was always fascinated by movie trailers. I loved how they were a sneak peek into a much bigger world. And when a trailer is put together right, it really gets that movie excitement flaring. Unfortunately, sometimes they get it wrong and it can make a movie look laughably bad. Or just blah.
I have found this show to be exceptionally enjoyable. Even though I really liked “The Clone Wars” I didn’t expect a lot from “Rebels” when it was first announced. But I was hooked from the very first episode and haven’t stopped watching since.
This past weekend at the Star Wars Celebration in London a new Behind The Scenes Video was presented for the upcoming Star Wars solo film “Rogue One.” The video shows a good amount of new snippets from the film.
Disney/Lucasfilm have released the first trailer for the first “Star Wars” stand-alone film entitled “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” What’s it about you ask? It was all in the opening crawl of “Star Wars: A New Hope.”
This scene was originally from the video release trailer that came out a few days back. But I did a tiny bit of audio manipulation to make it a bit more whole.
The special features below are what is contained on the Blu-ray release along with a listing of various retailer offerings.
In the footage, it seems they are picking up from were “Star Wars Episode VII” left off. Daisy Ridley’s Rey has tracked down Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker to return something he lost long ago.
