Hey, everyone! So, today I want to talk about the trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – or simply Rogue One for short – which came out last week.
P.S. You can find my earlier film trailer reaction posts here.
Warning: Spoilers ahead! Read/watch at your own risk!
0:10 – LOTS OF EMOTIONS BECAUSE OF BEAUTIFUL STAR WARS MUSIC.
0:16 – So apparently people already think Jyn Erso is Rey’s mom and, like… I guess I can see the resemblance? But I’m still clinging to the hope that she’s Leia and Han’s kid because REASONS.
0:16 – Those dorky little helmets are so adorable.
0:24 – YOUNG MON MOTHMA HOLY CRAP I’M SO EXCITED.
0:27 – Aaaaaand the other theory I’ve heard is that the guy right here is Kes Dameron, Poe’s father. I CERTAINLY HOPE SO. I’ve only read one volume of the comics that serve as prequels to The Force Awakens, but I really enjoyed getting a glimpse of his family. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET THAT BE HIS DAD.
0:28 – This is my favorite outfit! I love wrapping myself head to toe in blankets on cold days.
0:32 – Like, I know several people just died and I probably shouldn’t be laughing at that, but they all just went NYOOOOM and flipped over while in midair and… yeah.
0:44 – IS THIS WHAT I THINK IT IS?
0:48 – OH MY GOD YES IT IS IT IS OHHHH MY GOD.
0:50 – I literally had no idea what this movie was about and now I’m so excited because HELL YEAH IT’S ABOUT THE DEATH STAR.
0:58 – I’M SO CONFUSED WHAT IS THAT NOISE.
1:01 – Oh. I guess it’s a siren?
1:04 – THIS SIREN IS ME AND I AM THIS SIREN. THESE ARE PRECISELY THE NOISES I MAKE WHEN I AM DISTRESSED BECAUSE I NEED TO DO SOME ADULTING.
1:12 – I know I just said this siren is me, but… you can stop any time now, little siren. I can’t hear what else is going on.
1:18 – This dude must be super important, because not only does he have a stylish and super-important-looking cape, he’s striding through some water (a small lake? a giant puddle? I can’t tell) in his bright white cape with no concern about getting it dirty sooooo this must mean that he makes someone else do his laundry? #detectiveskills
1:24 – I’m sure that if this happened in real life and I were there I would, like, get hit by a laser and die, but AHHH THIS IS SO COOL.
1:29 – AHHH SHE LOOKS SO PRETTY AND BADASS HERE I’M SO EXCITED.
As I said earlier, I had absolutely no idea what this movie was going to be about, and now I’m ridiculously excited to see it. I’m apprehensive about young Han Solo’s cameo in Rogue One, because I… don’t have much faith that whoever they cast will (can?) portray him like Harrison Ford did, but STILL. I’m still so excited.
I mean… THE DEATH STAR! They’re stealing the plans for the Death Star! And the protagonist is a woman, so a woman stole – or rather is going to steal – the plans! I am 100% down for more female protagonists in, well, all genres, but especially fantasy and science fiction because little boys have looked up to a gazillion male protagonists from sci fi ever since its creation, and it’s time that little girls had more role models too.
What’s your opinion of this trailer for Rogue One?
