Why are the rogue squadron commandos not flying, and why the heck are they like a strange rag tag team of OVERWEIGHT bounty hunters with cains and swords? Guess I'll have to find out like the rest of y'all.

I don't think they are Rogue squadron. Looks like just some recruited street criminals. The name of the movie doesn't = Rogue squadron.


Isn't rogue one just the call sign for the squad leader?

Which is what I would guses is the pilot we see in the command room
Star Wars continues to use "leader"

"Red Leader"

Rogue is the squadron name, which I believe is first mentioned in ESB.

So in watching that three more times, it is clear that the opening shots are at the Rebel base on Yavin IV. There are obviously shots on the Death Star. But I am pretty sure I saw a moisture vaporator in one of the shots ... could we be returning to Tatooine? I have read that Biggs Darklighter may be a character in this, certainly fits the time line.

I loved hearing that warning siren.

I am looking more forward to this than I ever was to TFA.

Is the warning siren the same as the one used in Jedi when the Deathstar 2 was blowing up?

If you are referring to the guy (Diego Luna's character) half chuckling at Jyn's response to Mothma, I'm not sure that is Biggs.

I bet it's that planet with the palm trees. Probably not Tatooine. I hope not, anyway.

My guess, after seeing the trailer, is it's basically referring to the character. She says "I rebel," which could be interpreted as she's a rogue. Doesn't play by anyone's rules.



This would make more sense. So she prolly dies, and they name a squadron after her? I like this idea, I can get behind that.

and before a few minutes ago, I never realized how much I wanted to see the Ip Man beat the sh*t out of stormtroopers.

Now, that's all I can think about. I really wish Abrams hadn't wasted the cast of The Raid in TFA; looks like they'd have been awesome in this.

I think so. Wasn't it also going off when Vader landed on the death star in ROTJ?

Luna could BE Biggs.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood just debuted to the public.

After 2 1/2 years of construction, Wizarding World is having its grand opening today. Times staffers are there to bring you the details. Leading up to that, a red carpet event and celebration Tuesday included several actors from the "Harry Potter" films, plus fireworks and a performance by the L.A. Philharmonic.

I don't think they were wasted, per se. I believe the original intent from the get go was simply a cameo appearance. I do think their casting was intentionally embellished, however.

Also, regarding Biggs, he's just a guy that joined up from a backwater planet. Not likely he'd be in on the secret mission...especially when by the time Luke joins up he's like "WTF" when they show the Deathstar to the pilots.

On a side note, if you have kids that are Harry potter fsns, I cant recommend the Orlando Wizarding world enougj.

I hope Disney gets the star wars one half as right.

I'd be cool with Biggs being it, but I wouldn't want him to be a main part of the story.

A skinny Porkins before he coped with the loss of his fellow pilots by nearly eating himself out of his cockpit.

Porkins was also a lying, sneaky federal agent before the war.

Rey's mom? Resist the inner-Lucas urge that exists in all of us to tie together every character in the series... or not even series, universe.

This is kinda how I feel. Just give us new characters. Don't try and tie this in via family to the other films

lol I wasn't "hoping" or "predicting" she's Rey's Mom, but its a question you have to ask. IF they were going to relate this movie to TFA, how would they do it? This would definitely be near the top of that list.

I don't think they would do this though, they're going to leave the major reveals to the saga movies. If anything, we'll see an ace pilot named Dameron.
