Today We Enter An Age Unlike Any in Our History, One With Awesome Star Wars Spin-Off Movies

The first trailer for Rogue One hit the Internet today, and it’s a transformative experience. Up until today, the only real Star Wars movies were about the main Saga and the familiar characters. They’ve been big, blockbuster events, enjoyed by many. There have been tons of supplemental materials, like comics and cartoons, but the movies were special events.

Now, with Rogue One, we’re going to get big event movies that deals with material outside of the main Saga. After watching this first trailer, I say bring it on!

There’s just something so visceral about this trailer. I love it. I love the way it looks at Star Wars from a grounded, almost street-level perspective. I love the way it positions the Rebellion as a real, gritty, dangerous thing. That’s something I don’t know if I’ve ever felt with Star Wars.

I hope they can pull this off, and all their spin-off movies will be good. I’m not really looking forward to a Young Han Solo movie, but this sort of thing could be right up my alley.
