I don't think this movie will have anything to do with Rebels. It looks like fun SciFi battlefront type stuff.  Very different but still feels like grown up Star Wars.

I cant guess whether the Rebels crew will be in Rogue One, but I would bet there's a 90% chance the Ghost itself will appear in the movie.

There was something odd in today's Rebel's Recon.  Notably, with the real life Chopper droid crating himself up, and that crate having a UK flag stamp on it.  It certainly makes you think that there may be some REBELS related cameos in ROGUE ONE.

Even if its not a key part, it would be nice if they had The Ghost in the background so it could help justify making a toy out of it.

As I've said from the get go...how these two are not interelated would be mindboggling.  Why not feature some of the rebels in a scene if only for a fan wank.  I was originally convinced that Sabine, Hera or Ahsoka was going to star in this...until proven wrong I wouldn't doubt it

It is also baffling that there have been very leaks, no trailer yet almost nothing...Star Wars media is so weird (and that includes the lack of information coming out of their toy licensee)

I think a trailer being attached to Captain America- Civil War is a near certainty.  There was that one teaser trailer at Celebration, but that's really been one of the only official  things we've gotten so far.  I think Disney has put a lot of effort into security and leak prevention.  But I also think all of the discussion of THE FORCE AWAKENS has allowed ROGUE ONE to fly under the radar for a while.  Things will probably pick up once the teaser comes out.

Very very Republic Commando-ish IMO.  Nice.

Don't really care for the revisionist history of adding all these "specialty death troopers" to the OT era... it's just Stormies, Snowies, Sandies, and Biker Scouts, dammit!

That said, really good teaser. That shot of the Star Destroyer in front of the Death Star looked like a model and not CG!

Seeing the Yavin IV base really does help bring you back.  Especially with the Rebel Troopers in that ANH era gear.  And Mon Mothma?  Nice!  It even looks like they got the same actress that played her in REVENGE OF THE SITH.

I am a prequel apologist.  This looks like what I wish Episode had looked like. 

This looks INCREDIBLE.
