    When this trailer came out, the part that hooked me was Felicity Jones' character. I thought that line that was something like "You're the rebels, aren't you? I rebel" was a great way to set up not only her character, but establish her tenuous relationship with the rebels. In other words, the trailer makes it clear you can't necessarily trust her. A Star Wars hero that is unpredictable combined with being an antihero or possible eventual villain is very new. Luke consistently behaved kind and noble despite all the possible temptations to the dark side that arise, so it would be a surprise if he was succesfully turned evil (the only real evil moment of his is him angrily trying to take out his dad due to the emperor's temptation). Likewise, with Anakin, you know he's going to turn to Darth Vader eventually, so he's also predictable. But with this new heroine, I don't know what she's going to do, especially with the appearance of her in an imperial uniform at the movie's end. I love not knowing or even being able to make a reasonable guess when it comes to a morally ambiguous character, it drives their ambiguity.
