April 19th, 2015 by Marc Comments


From one of the last panels of Star Wars Celebration comes a teaser for the first  spinoff movie, Rogue One.

Director Gareth Edwards revealed that the movie will be from a time when there was no Jedi and just a bunch of real people with no mystical abilities who are simply trying to save the universe.

Anyway, the official synopsis reads: “A rogue band of resistance fighters unite for a mission to steal the Death Star plans and bring a new hope to the galaxy.” Edwards confirmed that it takes place after Episode III, before Episode IV, and “closer to Episode IV.”

So it is set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope oh and these movies will now be called Anthology movies to separate them from the sequel trilogy.

Here’s the leaked footage – we expect it to be online soon and will share it as soon as it is.

But we’re excited about the big thing in the sky.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
