Star Wars Moves Forward by Looking Back
–by Dan Roth
As you’ve no doubt noticed by now, the trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story debuted during an Olympics broadcast, and naturally it set the Internet buzzing. It’s a decent first look, showing us a chunk of Felicity Jones’s work as Jyn Erso without revealing too much about plot specifics or character relations. But while it ultimately amounted to a fairly generic spattering of Star Wars imagery and dramatic one-liners, the trailer hit one heck of a crescendo at the end. Darth Vader reappeared, getting in half a breath (all ho-, no -bur) before the scene cut out.
