    The first TV spot is up:


    I can't seem to not watch stuff from Rogue One :p With TFA, I didn't watch any of the TV spots, but I just watched this one without thinking about it.
    Anyway, not a lot of new things, but damn, this movie still looks so good!

    As a side note, I was on a trip to Germany this weekend, and found a really Rogue One coffee mug. I couldn't help myself - I had to have it! I think this is the first time since TPM when I've bought merch for a SW movie that isn't even out yet :)

    There's a new international trailer out for those who are interested. Seems to be all over Youtube.

    This one I'm actually avoiding - with only one month and three days left until the premiere I don't feel I need to see any more of the film before that.

    Very wise. There's something in there that I would speculate could end up being a big twist.

    It's being interpreted differently by different people so it is speculation, but I've a hunch about this one and if I'm right, it will make you see something very SW in a very different light.

    Let me guess - Darth Vadar is Luke's father ? :D :p

    The twist is that Vader is his mother. Shhh..... don't tell anyone. ;)

    I heard it was that Vader is Luke's father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate.

    These trailers and TV spots are giving us more footage than TFA it would seem. Unless I'm very much surprised, we also have key elements of the plot sussed as well.. I hope they leave some surprises for us!

    I missed the clip that aired on ABC. Is it online?

    As I continue to see the great new trailers, I've noticed the care, reverence, and attention to detail to the original trilogy.
    They are bringing back the old look and making it look better than ever with the big budget production design and the modern effects.
    Now with an OT tone prequel many were dreaming about but never got with the TPM. Rogue1 is like another gift for the fans, an OT
    concept somehow made into a film; looking forward to it.

    That's because this is set literally just before ANH.

    Did anyone honestly want the Prequel Trilogy to look exactly like the Original Trilogy? If you ask me, the points where it diverges from the style of the OT (and makes it a point to slowly begin to build towards a more OT aesthetic) are part of what makes the PT truly shine.

    It's a "more civilized age," as stated in ANH. And that's what we see at the start, with more and more of that "civilized" look wearing down as the Empire comes into power.

    This, for example...

    ...becomes this...
    [​IMG]

    ...becomes the ships seen in here...
    [​IMG]

    ...which becomes this.

    Hints of the structure of the RotS Jedi Starfighter even seems to factor directly into this for RO:
