I would imagine rogue one would be in a similar time frame to rebels

So I guess everyone's cool with the fact that the Force = magic now?

The Star Wars stand alone films have a logo treatment with STar Wars in little type on the top, Rogue One in big, and then Anthology below

Zero Dark Thirty DoP will shoot Rogue One. Doug Chang one of the production designers

Now THAT is cool.

I like that they are calling it an anthology in the title. It just adds something to the title without making it necessarily lesser than the main movies but still different

Anthology? Wonder what that means.

Felicity Jones will play a rebel soldier, says Edwards. He also said she dropped everything to do this movie because she's a huge SW fan.

Rogue One has VFX guy who worked on Saving Private Ryan. "You're not kidding about this being a war picture." "It is called Star WARS."

That title treatment is gorgeous. Also I can see the initial comparisons made to halo in that one shot

I imagine it's literally an anthology: unrelated stories told with some common elements/themes. One-offs that take place in the Star Wars universe.

Trying to think of a movie that really captured the seriousness of conventional war in a sci-fi setting, and can't really think of one.

Gareth Edwards says "Star Wars was basically very black and white. Our movie is grey." He's presumably talking about morality and ethics.

There were aspects of edge of tomorrow that I thought fit that criteria just not the WHOLE movie

Agree, but I think that the movie will be closer to the events of ANH. I think it will take another season for Rebels to get close to that. Regardless, this will be a Celebration long remembered. We have seen the second teaser for TFA, the season two trailer for Rebels, and a teaser for Rogue One.

Anthologies in literature generally have a common element (obviously that could be Star Wars), but would be really cool if the common theme was taking background stories from the OT & PT and fleshing them out into big movies - rebels stealing the Death Star plans obviously is something we hear about but never see on screen; obviously the big one would be Vader and Palps hunting down the Jedi (apart from what's been covered in Rebels), you could even throw Hayden Christensen a bone and let him play the Vader suit so he doesn't have to keep making movies with Nic Cage; A "how Boba Fett became a bad-ass" movie has obviously had a lot of traction, and you could have Vader in there - to set up the "no disintegrations" line from Empire; etc.

And I'm loving the look, I just hope it's doesn't veer too far into "serious" territory. I'm all for dark and gritty, but make it feel like Star Wars as well.

Was it a teaser or just stills?

It was an actual teaser, with footage/effects made specifically for the teaser/presentation. That said, sounds like it's going to be a Celebration thing only, but who knows.

That was my first thought as well actually. The battle scenes felt pretty "real" and unchoreographed.

This raises an interesting question. Will they dare to venture back into the time period of the PT to tell some stories that happened during/alongside the Clone Wars? Or is that era just too tainted by the prequels?

Everything I have heard and read indicates that Disney has little interest in going back to the PT era or even The Old Republic era at this time. I think that will change in time though. There were a LOT of people sad to see KOTOR no longer canon when everything got reorganized.

I don't think they will and not because of the prequels but because the cartoon has covered so much of that already.

I would love an obi wan film starring Ewan McGregor post rots

Such a great, simple tease. Man, I am fired up for this movie.

For such a short and simple tease, you could feel some real tension in the last bit.

I was hoping that shot of the soldiers was in the teaser and just realized that was concept art

I couldn't make out the details watching that on my phone, but did that teaser just show the death star in orbit over a jungle planet?

I think a Dark Times movie is a no-brainer at some point. I don't think that Vader could carry a movie as the main character, but it would be a great way to re-purpose The Emperor's Hand (be that Mara Jade or whoever else) or a variation of the Starkiller arc as they hunt down Jedi in hiding. That's if they're willing to do a "bad guy" film, which they may not be.

I'd just be interested in what Obi-Wan did on a daily basis after getting to Tatooine. Yoda was 880 years old by the time he hit Dagobah, Obi-Wan was still in his prime. Kinda hard to go from fighting a thousand droids and hour on 50 different planets to trying to decide what color moisture vaporator matches your drapes.
