The teaser trailer for Star Wars: Rogue One was released this morning:
My first impressions are that this movie looks amazing! I can’t wait to see it. It makes me excited for the future of Star Wars to see such fun and exciting work being done with it. Star Wars Rebels is great,1 Episode VII is on around the house pretty regularly now that it’s been released for purchase, and now we have an awesome looking new Star Wars story coming this year to hold us over until Episode VIII is released. It’s a good time to be a Star Wars fan.
When I was little I loved making Star Wars stories, some involving the classic characters and others not. In middle school I starting writing an Extended Universe book that eventually reached 200+ handwritten pages. I drew Star Wars characters, new and familiar, constantly. I credit the world building friendliness of Star Wars and Jurassic Park with what eventually led me to become a designer. I was not alone in these pursuits. I’m sure there were children everywhere doing the same thing. Now these children are grown up, and some of them are getting the chance to do it for real. The rest of us are the beneficiaries.
The season finale was soooo good. ↩
