incase it goes down:
>It's Obi Wan from ANH, the line going all the way through, "Before the dark times. Before the Empire" just as the Death Star is revealed
>It's definitely the first Death Star
>Though we only see the top half, like a dome against the skyline
>"A rogue band of resistance fighters unite to steal the Death Star plans and bring new hope to the galaxy!"
>The film takes place after Episode III and before Episode IV, Edwards reiterates
>But he says "maybe a little bit more towards four," adding that ANH is his favorite film
>He says it's interesting that there are nearly no Jedi
>It's a scenario "where God isn't coming to save us"
>“It comes down to a group of individuals who don’t have magical powers that have to somehow bring hope to the galaxy.”
>The moderator is asking about how the film will impact Rebels, which i set in the same time period
>She says that they don't mandate things crossing over, but they are aware of the potential
>"Real" is the term they want tied to Rogue One
>"It's hopefully going to feel very natural and subjective," says Edwards
>He doesn't want the good guys to be really good or the bad guys to be really bad
>"It's the reality of war. Good guys are bad. Bad guys are good."
>He says it's really about shades of grey
>They're showing a still!
>A whole group of rebel soliders running in the rain
>There's a ship behind them I don't recognize. Midway between an X-Wing and a Y-Wing
>Felicity Jones plays...
>"a rebel soldier"
>He says they wanted a character that show range. Fear, humor and warmth.
>"She's the complete package," says Edwards
>One of the elements that ties a lot of these filmmakers together is their work on gritty war films
>Zero Dark Thirty, Black Hawk Down, etc
>"Yeah," says Edwards with a smile, "Star *Wars*"
A Star wars movie with no jedi, sounds amazing.
