    Rogue One takes place roughly 6-12 months or even less before Star Wars.

    As we all know - Star Wars featured things like:

    1. 1970s computer graphics
    2. Control panels with lots of knobs and flashing lights
    3. 70s haircuts
    4. Muttonchops

    Will the new film incorporate some of this look or ignore it for modern sensibilities? I'm guessing it's a mix.

    Likely a mix. They'll treat it like a period piece. Keep the components most palatable to modern audiences to make it successful but leave out the most egregious wspexts so as not to turn people off. It's a tough line to walk but should be doable with the right effort.

    I'm more concerned about the "feel" of the movie itself. From what I've seen in the teaser, it felt a bit too dark and gritty compare to the other Episodes. As if watching Private Ryan beach landing scene.

    I'm totally down for it. Maybe its because I because a fan from the books, which explored the idea of different genre's set inside the sw universe. Clone wars did that a bit too. Let the episodes have a consistent feel, but give me mystery, horror, war films, hard boiled detective stories etc for the anthology films.

    I'd love to see some faux 70s styles and retro future-visions in this movie :) That would suit my inner child just fine ;)

    I think it will be a mix. Mostly I'm just concerned the movie will have a large CGI component. I haven't seen Godzilla (Still want to). But from the trailers I saw, it looked Heavily CGI-based.

    Now I know the teaser had to be CGI because the movie hasn't started filming. But just the feel of it makes me think it will be heavily CGI based. Don't get me wrong, the CGI in the Godzilla trailer looks great. But from the standpoint of what Abrams was trying to do, it seems like the exact opposite.
