Rogue One: Trailer

I enjoyed J.J. Abrams’ interpretation of the Star Wars universe with The Force Awakens, but it felt too shiny, too clean.

Now Rogue One feels like a Star Wars movie should.

Or maybe it’s just seeing old school Star Destroyers and the original Death Star, though I think that it’s the grim tone, the grit and the desperation of a Rebel Alliance put on the ropes by an ascendant Imperial Empire.

Desperation suits Star Wars.
