    I’m not sure if we’be glimpsed him in any of the trailers, but is that General Dodonna during the scene were the Alliance are meeting?

    • November 17, 2016 at 8:30 pm

      I think so, looks like him.

    • November 17, 2016 at 10:56 pm

      Oh yeah, it’s definitely Dodonna. Bail Organa is in there too.

    • November 18, 2016 at 4:23 pm

      Yes it’s definitely Dodonna. But who’s playing him…..
      The side profile looks a little like Jeremy Bulloch in the face with a beard and wig. Could it be?

    Tarkin will be in the movie? Any info?

    • November 17, 2016 at 8:22 pm

      I am assuming in some sort of cameo. If you read Catalyst, you will see that Krennic and Tarkin have some history.

    • November 17, 2016 at 8:29 pm

      I’m hoping so. I swear I’ve already seen him in the Celebration Reel He can be found at 1:06 as one of the two people standing directly behind Orson Krennic, the man that takes a step to the side and back.

      If it is him, I can’t believe that I’m the only one that has seen it, so it makes me think that it isn’t likeley. Still, I think it is him.

        I don’t know, they all seem to be wearing Imperial hats in that picture. Of course Tarkin could wear a hat, but I think in order to get the point of who he is to the audience they would make him look as similar to ANH as they can.

        • November 18, 2016 at 1:02 am

          His hair is really gray in ANH

          • November 18, 2016 at 6:48 am

            Yeah exactly. The guy in that clip looks to have dark hair. He *does* look kinda like the younger Tarkin from RotS.

          • November 18, 2016 at 8:56 pm

            Unless that have show footage before they tweaked it. I know George wanted to put old Cushing Footage from another one of his films in ROTS, but it didn’t happen.

  • November 17, 2016 at 8:12 pm

    Oh dear, that’s a really cool video. On the big screen this will look gorgeous

  • November 17, 2016 at 8:22 pm

    I just f**king squeeled at my desk and my coworkers wondered if there was a mouse in the office.

    Beyond excited for this movie. I want to buy my damn tickets already.

  • November 17, 2016 at 8:40 pm

    That astro droid at 0:34…I want one. 🙂

  • November 17, 2016 at 10:58 pm

    It’s nice to see some of the disjointed dialogue from the trailers put together properly to see that the actors are actually executing their lines in a convincing manner.

    That was my only hang up with the trailers, but it seems like it’s just crap editing from the results of this video.

    • November 17, 2016 at 11:53 pm

      Was thinking the same thing. Comes across way better now.

  • November 17, 2016 at 11:01 pm

    i hope this film ends with a cameo of R2d2 and c3po on the Tantive IV

    • November 17, 2016 at 11:05 pm

      My personal hope is they have Vader and the 501st readying to board the Tantive IV. I think it would be cool to see them cutting through the door from the opposite side, then pushing through the smoke filled exterior. But the next movie starts with the chase so my hopes are dashed 😛

      • November 17, 2016 at 11:39 pm

        Ah yeah we might get a little scene onboard with the plans coming through along the lines of “inform the princes we’ve received a transmission from blah blah blah” R2D2 and c3po in the background etc etc or reverse of that vader being told onboard the star destroyer
        the ship has transmitted the plans to the ship but A droid cameo would be good

    • November 18, 2016 at 12:40 am

      Leia speaking to her father one last time would be cool… and heart breaking.

  • November 17, 2016 at 11:55 pm

    I didn’t think it was possible before but I’m starting to think this might end up being my fav SW movie.

      • November 18, 2016 at 12:36 am

        Ikr? If this is what we can expect from the spin-offs going forward then I’m all in.

        • November 18, 2016 at 6:49 am

          Inevitably there will be a bad one but this looks like a hell of a promising start.

    • November 18, 2016 at 12:47 am

      I like that they say Extended sequences. That’s what I missed from TFA. battles.

    • November 18, 2016 at 5:11 am

      “Extended sequences of sci-fi action violence”

      I guess the entirety of the Star Wars franchise, along with 90% of all sci-fi are now automatically PG-13. Fuck MPAA ratings by the way.

  • November 18, 2016 at 1:19 am

    I always enjoy little glimpses behind the scenes and on the sets. Good stuff

  • November 18, 2016 at 6:18 am

    Is that base the same that we saw in a new hope? or is it a near place?, pyramids are too visible, in ANH they were less visible, more like hidden, anyone knows something about this?.

    • November 18, 2016 at 2:38 pm

      It is the same base. The new shot has the Gas Giant in so the ones we see are from a different angle and closer than the ones we see in the ANH shot. Would have to watch ANH again the check other shots

  • November 18, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    WTF every aspect of this movie seems amazing. Im totally surprised and blown away

    • November 22, 2016 at 9:28 pm

      So agree with you. EVERY shot, literally E V E R Y shot I’ve seen thus far looks incredible. At this point even before seeing the movie, I know for a fact it’s going to at least visually blow TFA out of the water.

  • November 18, 2016 at 8:24 pm

    The female lead AGAIN thing pissed me off at first, now im starting to change my tune. Felicity seems to have been the absolute perfect pick for this role. Hats off to the film team for their casting choices!

  • November 18, 2016 at 11:58 pm

    It could be the coolest looking SW film yet, but I don’t expect to be as invested in the characters the way the episodic movies do.
