The first Star Wars spin-off film – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – opens in about a month, one year after the release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens. Episode VII broke a lot of records, but what can we expect Rogue One to do this year? Let’s talk about Rogue One‘s chances at the box office.

It is finally here! Lucasfilm just released this trailer, which is believed to be the final full-length trailer for the first Star Wars spin-off film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters; Godzilla). It finally gives us a good look at Jyn Erso’s father, and we get a little bit more of Darth Vader! Continue reading “TRAILER RECAP: Rogue One (Official Trailer #2) – Dagobah Day #22”
Last September, Dagobah Day focused on four predictions I had for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens. Two of my four predictions look pretty good today and – technically – the last two could still be true if they explain more about Snoke and Poe in the future.
I’m not caught up on the Poe Dameron comic book, so that may have actually debunked my theory. Today, I want to try to speculate and make some predictions about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘s plot.

Mads Mikkelsen is one of my favorite actors out there, and definitely my favorite Danish actor ever. We’ve known for a little while now that Mikkelsen is playing the father of Jyn Erso (played by Felicity Jones) in Rogue One. But we haven’t seen his character in either of the two trailers. This month, let’s talk about what we know about the mysterious Galen Erso.

A couple of days ago, The Wrap reported that Lando Calrissian will be appearing in the Han Solo anthology film! Now, we haven’t gotten that confirmed yet, and we don’t know how much he’ll be in the film, if he is indeed in it. But Birth.Movies.Death have reported that Community‘s Donald Glover is the first choice for the part, which obviously makes me happy. But let’s today talk about who could, or should, play Lando if Glover doesn’t take the role. Continue reading “The Next Lando – Dagobah Day #19”
They just released the first full official trailer for the first anthology film in the Star Wars universe – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story! They released a celebration reel back when Star Wars Celebration Europe was happening, and before that they released an official teaser trailer, which I reviewed here. But now we have our first full trailer, and it’s glorious. First, let’s take a look at what was said in the trailer:

In less than five months, we’ll all have seen the first Anthology Film in the Star Wars-franchise. This marks the opening of a new chapter in the franchise and blockbuster filmmaking as a whole. But one thing has me worried about Lucasfilm, Rogue One, and the Anthology Films: they may not include the opening crawl.

The following is a special Dagobah Day. Dagobah Day is normally released on the first Monday of every month.
So the Rogue One-panel was pretty cool. Gwendoline Christie moderated it, we got a pretty cool new poster, they released a behind-the-scenes sizzle reel, and the crowd got to see a special teaser trailer. But the biggest news from the panel was a huge mistake. Jiang Wen might’ve spoiled the film. Continue reading “Did Jiang Wen Just Spoil Rogue One? – Dagobah Day #16”
Last month, Dagobah Day focused on the best moments in the prequel trilogy. It wasn’t always easy to point out what moments were good, in three movies that aren’t that great. Today I didn’t have trouble finding good moments. Instead, my biggest problem was to rank the greatest moments of the original trilogy. The original trilogy is one of the best trilogies of all-time. So, today I want to single out ten of the greatest moments in the original trilogy, to remind Star Wars-fans how lucky we are to have these films and these characters.

The prequel trilogy gets a lot of hate, and, look, I get it, there are a lot of reasons why you’d dislike or even hate the prequel trilogy films. Personally, I really like Revenge of the Sith a lot, but I really dislike huge chunks of the two other prequels. Today I want to single out ten of the greatest moments in the prequel trilogy, to remind Star Wars-fans that there are great things about the trilogy.
