THREE GUYS AND… A TRAILER
series created by Marvin Mercer and Nick Stephenson
“ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY TRAILER (Official)”
written by Dominick Cappello
Okay, I don’t really have a review of this trailer per se. Heck, there’s not going to be any major characters from the previous films sans Darth Vader, so it’s hard to speculate. We won’t know until we actually see the film if we’ll connect with these new characters. I do like how the droid in this trailer seems like a badass version of C-3PO. Sure, he’s giving everyone the odds, but he’s also apparently programmed to kill. I mainly want to address the pessimists who say that “Star Wars” isn’t special anymore because we’re now going to get a new film every year. You have no joy if you didn’t get psyched seeing Darth Vader’s helmet. You can’t say that seeing AT-ATs in a prequel ruins their reveal in “The Empire Strikes Back” because it would be almost impossible to make a “Star Wars” film, even a prequel, that pretends like we haven’t all scene the original trilogy. Even future generations will appreciate the original trilogy for being groundbreaking even if they grow up with new films. I grew up with Pierce Brosnan as James Bond, then went and watched the Sean Connery and Roger Moore films. And, let’s be honest, did you see the prequel trilogy? I mean, if anything made “Star Wars” not feel special anymore, it was prequels. They sucked long and they sucked hard. These new films are actually restoring my faith in the “Star Wars” property.
