    This is very interesting. It could be Chirrut, but I doubt he's in the novel.

    I wonder if they will give him a similar personality. Or if it has time to bleed?

    For me, the thing that has me really pumped is that we are finally going to be able to see a story beyond the whole Jedi vs Sith conflict. While I love that story, one of the things that is great about the comics and novels is that you can see many non Jedi/Sith aspects of SW that are really interesting. There have been many great novels like the Boba Fett trilogy, the Tales novels, Death Troopers and many more that have great SW stories. When we look at ANH we can see a galaxy without Jedi where a band of beings are struggling against the evil of the Empire and RO now will expand on this. We now get to see the other side of the coin. The other men and women who struggled and fought just as hard as our loved OT heros did and I dare say maybe even harder as these new heros might not have a wise old Force Ghost to guide them on their most crucial moment.

    I'm just interested because it is more Star Wars and something to keep me busy until Ep8. I'm sure the movie will be great but I'm just sort of 'meh' about it right now. I'll be there opening day though!

    Put simply, I'm looking forward to see how Star Wars looks without a force user or a Skywalker. It'll be interesting to see how it works, and I gotta say, I'm probably a bit more excited for R1 than EP VIII because of this and a few other reasons.

    This! The complete Jedha occupied force pilgrim setting.

    And for me also the new and old troop types of the empire, the new and old vehicles and planets. Y-Wings and U-Wings!

    And a fresh space battle!

    I guess I might end up repeating a lot of what it has been told before.

    I am really looking forward to see how the Rebel Alliance was working before ANH and after what we have seen so far from Rebels.

    I am looking forward to see how the Death Star plans were stolen, without any Jedi intervention. When I say this, I'm really afraid about Kanan and Ezra, because I do know they are somewhat involved in one of the Rebel Alliance cells - Phoenix Squadron - but we don't know why they are not involved there - and we might suspect the reason why.

    I want to see Vader again onscreen - the mighty Dark Lord of the Sith acting menacing and taking rebels down with his power. (And maybe even Imperials too - so sorry for you Krennic!).

    Have you finished Season 2?

    I'm actually really looking forward to how this movie ties in with ANH - by that I mean, how will I feel watching ANH after seeing R1 knowing the story that preceded it. Once R1 comes out, everything in the opening crawl of ANH and the opening sequences changes - there is a full backstory, the destruction of Alderaan - that will be seen differently.

    I'm sure R1 will be so incredible that I Force Choke the entire cinema in happiness, but I'm 1% anxious about how it will affect future viewings of the OT, especially ANH

    I might be cursing in church now. But apart from a few iconic scenes and its obvious historical significance, each successive viewing of A New Hope makes me a bit more drowsy. I'm open for a new and emended comprehension of A New Hope. What is really altering my view of A New Hope, in not such a positive way, is Star Wars Rebels. It removes much of the mystery of the rebellion and the empire presented in A New Hope, and not in a very succesful manner. But then again, Rebels upsets me for a whole range of different reasons as well quite similar to how The Clone Wars tv series totally destroyed my Darkhose Comics induced view of the Clone Wars as a dark and gruesome war with many shades of grey (Darkhose, Star Wars: Republic)

    and for the rest..........

    Darth Maul.....................just why? (vicious)

    I also want to see whether they include any species from the prequels. I feel like, if there's any upcoming film that should include some of those (Geonosians, Twi'leks, Felucians, Pauans, etc.) it's this one.

    What interests me most about Rogue One is, ironically, not the story itself but how this movie unfolds on the screen. How far from the original recipe will Lucasfilm stray? Apart from flashbacks and no opening crawl, what else will be different? Will the non-Williams score be suitable? And, most importantly, will all these changes still make Rogue One "feel" like a classic Star Wars film? These are the things that most interest me.

    I would go as far as to say, it's the entire aspect of the movie. It's stand alone, yet still has Vader. It's all things that every Star Wars fans want... and that is MORE STAR WARS.

    To feel emotionally vulnerable, as I watch characters I've come to love and care about struggle for the right thing, for a higher cause that benefits the majority of the people and not just a select few and one by one, die.

    The fate of the characters. That's what interests me the most.

    The second thing is to see an occupied galaxy under the Empire's boot. Give me worldbuilding, thank you.
