Be kinda nice to see a woman of color in the lead, but hey, a woman! Pretty sweet! And also, a whole new Star War. :lol: Looks like it's gonna be pretty nifty.

So... any theories? Some of those characters have to be connected to the new generation, right?

(But seriously, wouldn't it be so cool to have a woman of color be the main hero?)

(Yeah but I'm still excited for it. :) )


ETA: I know nothing whatsoever about this story, but does anyone think that this gal and the guy who was giving her The Look could be Rey's folks?

a) Tentatively excited, it looks good
b) The deconstructed theme song played slowly at the beginning of the trailer trend needs to go, yesterday
c) not bragging, but I've been here:

d) Actually, that was bragging. Sorry.

Jyn (Felicity Jones's character) could be Rey's mother but... I dunno. Seems world-shrinking. Which Star Wars totally does all the time. I'd be OK with it, but who knows.

Also had a friend suggest that Diego Luna is Rey's father, and will be Benicio del Toro's character in VIII. I'm not sure the age-gap between the actors is big enough considering the in-universe time-lapse between Rogue One and VIII. But I wouldn't be adverse to it.

I'm excited for the film though!

LOL because I was a little irked at a variation on the SW theme, too. 8)

I wonder if any of these movies will do the whole Dameron family thing. But maybe not, since they've got their own comic and he's got a comic etc.

The new comics are canon, so I don't think they'll repeat that in a movie.

(Has anyone read Shattered Empire? I read the Princess Leia miniseries and loved it, but I bailed on the main-continuity Star Wars after one issue. Didn't do it for me.)

I read the first one, but I really only have time to read on my phone (long story short: I only read in bed, and since my son sleeps in the same room I have to have the light off, so I read on my phone,) and that's just not conducive to really getting into graphic novels. :? Oh well. Someday I'll read them!

(Re: expanded universes: I'm still not over the fact that the OLD canon isn't canon anymore. Do you know how much time and money I invested in that? >_< )

Anyway, back to Rogue One. I was hoping that seeing that title everywhere would teach people how to spell "rogue," but I'm still seeing "rouge one." Like it's a makeup line or something.

Oh well. Maybe I should bite my tounge. :lol:

I'd like more women of color in more roles period.

The listing of the crimes but giving the special mission anyway thing was a little bit too Expendables for me maybe.

I get that, but reach past the Expendables movies and you've got The Dirty Dozen. Specifically the first hour of The Dirty Dozen. 8)

I'm so sick of characters being related. I hope all of these theories are wrong.

On the other hand, I've seen speculation that Mads Mikkelsen is playing Lor San Tekka (Max Von Sydow's TFA character), which would be kinda cool.
