    According to makingstarwars.net the 1st 20 minutes of the film is being screened as part of the promotional tour in Mexico. A summary of the early word is no scroll, the traditional GFFA title card, then a brief scene of Saw saving a very young Jyn, followed by the Rogue One title card, and then a cut with a time jump to new planet. The score is pretty fresh and supposed to be upbeat with some of the classic sprinkled in here and there.

    Now I am surprised we haven't heard more. Maybe we should put the word out. Calling all Star Wars fans in Mexico please check-in and spill some details por favor.

    UPDATE: Sorry in my excited rush I misread, it was 20 min of footage that included the very beginning as well as pieces of the battle happening on Scarrif.

    I heard something similar from someone other than MSW. It sounds like it matches up.

    Here's a link about a fan who saw the event Travcon. http://www.sopitas.com/694836-vimos-20-minutos-rogue-one-omg/
    If you guys don't want any spoilers then please don't read this! Sadly it's in spanish but for all of you who don't know how to read it here's a quick resume of what the fan said: He said that the movie is going to be a hardcore war movie with lots and lots of action. And he said that apart from the in-planet battles there are going to be some space ones. He also said that apart from Vader, fans should keep their eyes peeled for many more familiar cameos from OT characters. Music is quite different and he says that everything he heard was new and nothing John Williams.

    Here's another link that talks about the event and let's us know of another familiar character that appears in RO. This contains a spoiler so be warned those who want to read this! https://www.starwarsnewsnet.com/2016/11/rumor-details-on-the-20-minute-rogue-one-preview.html

    Isn't there someone on Reddit or somewhere else who is claiming to be speaking to someone who has seen the whole movie? Even gave out some major details/spoilers? Or has that been debunked? Not saying I am buying what he's saying or anything but just curious how that's playing out.
