The new, standalone films will be called Star Wars Anthology.  The first movie is Rogue One and the synopsis was revealed at Star Wars Celebration this past weekend.

"A band of resistance fighters unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans in Star Wars anthology film, Rogue One"

There's a piece of concept art here and a concept trailer that's kind of neat (shaky cam though)

My main issue with prequels is that generally speaking, they're attempting to build suspense when the audience already knows how it ends. It's like, you know how Star Wars Episode III ends, and it wasn't like it was going to have a twist ending or surprise you in the end (twirling/leaping CGI Yoda or not). I'm sure Rogue One will attempt to be an interesting journey but the destination (stealing Death Star plans) seems pretty set in stone.

And really, the Death Star? Again? For a third movie essentially?

And if you remember the beginning of Star Wars, none of the Rebel forces can hit the broad side of a barn at 5 paces with a blaster anyway.  retard Though maybe the Rogue One guys actually know how to aim and lead their targets.  icon_smile

And sure, I'll watch it anyway. icon_smile I guess I'm more keen on the possible Bobba Fett and maybe even a Darth Maul spin off movie, something where they build back story for an interesting, cool-but-marginalized/underdeveloped character.

Many Bothans died to bring us this information.  They're shoehorned into Bothans already!

Sure, we know what happens to the Death Star, but we don't know what happens to the characters. If you think they're going to build the tension around the Death Star itself in this movie, you're in for a surprise.

Wrong Death Star. Bothans died to get the plans for the second one, not the first.

You sure it wasn't Manny Bothans, the lovable spy?

This would also be the third take on the 'stealing the death star plans' plot I remember.  Both X-Wing and Dark Forces had missions devoted to it.

And since all previous EU sources are now non-canon, this is the perfect opportunity to set the record straight and give us the official story of what happened, one that is likely to be very different from previous ones.

I'm intrigued by how the movie is supposed to be tonally inspired by Zero Dark Thirty and Saving Private Ryan, with next to no Force users. That's a pretty bold direction to take Star Wars in, and I like it.

I really, really hope they also choose to ditch the current look for Bothans in the EU, they're basically furries currently.

I also hope they make use of Kyle Katarn as a character, because he was one of the few EU characters that was an interesting protagonist.
