Looks pretty cool, I like the old-school feel. Much as I enjoyed Episode VII, it was good to see classic storm troopers again.

Looks good! :D December is a still far away, but I definitely will be going to see this. Of course, I knew that before I even saw the trailer. ;) I'm definitely curious where this storyline goes!

I think it looks pretty good as well, and I like this time period for the setting. Should be a cool story that adds to the context of the original trilogy.

Yes it looks so good! I'm possibly even more excited for this one than I was for Episode VII! This is a place in the timeline I really want to see more of, life under the Empire and the rise of the Rebellion, and it's going to be cool to see the story of how they got the Death Star plans that set off New Hope.

Yay! The trailer looks pretty neat; it'll be interesting to see if it lives up to expectations.

Altough phooey on George Lucas for giving us spoilers for" Rogue One" in "A New Hope" :x I was going to be on the edge of my seat wondering if the rebels actually stole the Death Star plans, but no, he had to go and give it all away..30 years ago!

My first reaction when I heard where this would be in the timeline was "We'll finally learn why so many Bothans died" but then realized no, that was Death Star II.

I saw Rogue One in theatres yesterday, and it was very good! \:D/ My brother and I both really enjoyed it and thought it was an excellent addition to the Star Wars movies. The story fits in nicely and makes great use of familiar info while adding a lot more good stuff.

I saw it yesterday. It was pretty good. *nods* I liked Force Awakens better, but it was still another Star Wars movie. =) I loved what Giacchino did with the Star Wars theme, but the rest of the music was a bit meh. I heard it's because Disney really rushed him on it. o_0

I also liked how they tried to clean up some plot holes in the Originals by explaining why the Death Star was so simple to destroy. It wasn't a super creative answer, but it at least got the job done. My only big complaint is I feel there wasn't a ton of characterization... like, I finished the movie, and I didn't remember any character's names. I remember feeling the same way after Force Awakens (and most of the SW movies seem like this, come to think of it), which can kinda be annoying. And Tarkan bothered me for a little while... I think it's because his face wasn't pointy enough and he wasn't pale enough. Also, did Darth Vader sounds really different to you? I guess it's because they kept the same actor and he's old now. :P

IT WAS AWESOME!!! However the CGI Grand Moff Tarkin totally ruined it for me, I noticed it was CGI a few seconds after they showed his face. Then I got completely distracted by it.
Saw it on opening night, we arrived two hours before the first showing only to find out that they had sold out of tickets for that showing, so we ended up waiting another hour to watch it in the second showing. It's awesome to be in the theater with a bunch of nerds who clap for the Lucasfilm logo! Oh, and I agree, after the intro the soundtrack was kind of 'meh.'

I find this very interesting because after we got home my brother saw online that he was CGI, and we were both surprised to find that out. We had been avoiding spoilers so we didn't know in advance, and we both had commented on how great he looked, but assumed that it was due to awesome prosthetic/make-up/movie magic and had no idea it was CGI. I expect that I will probably see the movie in theatres again in the next couple of weeks, so this time I want to pay more attention to see what I think now that I know, but to me, he looked good!

HisPrincess, there's no crawl at the beginning of the movie....the words that usually crawl across the screen at the every beginning of a Star Wars movie giving you some info about what's going on. It is a war movie more than the other Star Wars movies, but I think you'll be able to keep track of it! I hope you like it when you get to see it!

i saw it on tuesday and it was great! i was disappointed about there being no crawl tho. i feel like Darth Vader wasn't in it as much as we all had hoped, however overall i feel it was a great movie. if you've ever seen the HISHE (how it should have ended) videos on YouTube for any movies before, i think you'll enjoy seeing the HISHE movie review for Rogue One after you've seen it. I personally enjoyed that very much, as did the rest of my family. :D
