Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I'm sure the movie will have action and fun, but this teaser has an odd feel to it. But I'll be there opening day of course.
I do dig Episode 7, saw it three times. (Would've saw it only once I guess if I my bro didn't want to see it, etc. Watchable though. )

I'd like a rebels on a mission movie to feel more like an 80s Schwarzenegger flick than say a Hunger Games movie. The tone of this trailer is more like the latter. Or since this has Donnie Yen in it, ideally it could be like Tiger Cage 2, in the Star Wars universe. But that's just what I'm into. Hard-boiled ass kickery.
Also, the subplot about the protagonist becoming cold due to war or whatever just feels heavy-handed for this material to me. Shouldn't they be presented as a hero? What's there to be conflicted about? They're trying to stop a giant thing that blows up innocent planets full of people. But hey, just initial impressions.

You know what they say: "One´s freedom fighter is other´s terrorist."
There could be final transformation/realization of truth, but as ongoing process, not immediately. Maybe it would be too heavy for Star Wars, straying away from its black and white morality. This would also require to alter typical portrayal of empire as cartoony "muahaha absolute power", but I think it can be done (maybe by focusing less on emperor and more on charismatic leaders like Tarkin and Thrawn) and I would be greatly interested in exploring such theme.
Did you know there is also one cool unused scene from Return Of Jedi that tried to humanize imperials bit?
^ Totally this. What missed opportunity to be able to see such badass as Katarn on big screen.
And his origin story could also be utilized for aforementioned theme.
EDIT: There is also interesting story of ace pilot from TIE Fighter game. Damn it, Disney.
That reminds me of this amazing little thing.
You one ugly motherf*cker, say "Hasta la vista" to my little friend!

ROGUE ONE Insiders Describe Darth Vader Scenes as "Brutal"
I'm not at all against this! While we've always known Vader was for the most part cold-blooded in his early days, we never saw the height of his power in the films as we do in other media. That being said, there's a fine line between depicting someone being choked out on screen and straight up head slicing them. Do you think it's extreme, or not extreme enough?!

Wouldn't be outside the realm of possibility of that being the case. Star Wars pushing the transgender agenda

I hope this is not the beginning of Disney majorly screwing up. (I know some of you think they screwed up already, but this would do it for me personally)

So it's a Battlefront based movie?
Disney sympathizes openly for the Empire.

Anyway, that's my take on it, and all I really want is for future Star Wars movies to just be the best they can be.

Not that I'd rather have George back. No way. If that's the way Star Wars goes, well, it's better that it had a good run than to have Lucas continue to screw things up. I don't expect it to happen right away (though I'm still wary about this news for Rogue One), but I now see it as inevitable.

P.s. Sorry if it comes across that my posts are directed at you MI (they're not), I'm just airing my thoughts in general and I realise you're doing the same. The possibilities of what could happen to the series if it ends up safe and decided by committee is a very valid concern, and I don't think anyone wants that.

They aren't all that way but enough of them are that I am deeply suspicious. A good example of a prequel series that has been amazing so far with none of those issues is Better Call Saul -- but then again that's a TV series prequel and I was complaining about movie prequels.
Imo there should only have been one or at most 2 Star Wars prequel movies, not 3. It should have started with Anakin already a teenager (discovered by Obi Wan at about the same age as Luke in ANH) and it should have ended with him defeated by Obi-Wan and presumed dead by the audience (no Vader yet). Then it would not have spoiled the next 3 movies because you wouldn't even know that Anakin was alive let alone that he was Luke's father.

I don't think there's any realistic way to tell the story of Anakin/Vader without giving it away. That was the heart of the story.

Rumors that Disney executives have forced the changes to make the movie more family friendly are also false. According to EW’s sources, there have been no test screenings, and it’s unlikely there ever will be on a Star Wars film.
