There’s a brand new Rogue One trailer out, have you watched it?? The first Star Wars spin-off movie will tell the story about HOW the plans for the Death Star were stolen, an event that sets in motion the events of all the other Star Wars movies.
While it’s obviously going to touch on iconic Star Wars moments and characters we know and love, it’s also going to bring some new ones into the mix. The big standout from the brand new Rogue One crew is, without a doubt, Felicity Jones. She plays the super badass Jyn Erso who — from what we’ve gathered from the trailers — a former criminal trying to go straight, and she’s been tasked with the mission to assemble a team and get her hands on the Death Star plans.
That alone is a big deal, but it’s also a big deal for us: Rogue One is the first Star Wars movie to prominently feature a female protagonist. Yes, The Force Awakens had Rey, but she wasn’t front and center all the time. Jyn will be.
The new Rogue One trailer reassures us of this, because there are SO MANY moments that give you chills, and also make you stand up and scream YAAAASSSS.
