Today Disney released the first teaser trailer for this year’s Star Wars movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Even though a bit longer than the usual teasers, the trailer isn’t showing much more of the plot line than we already know. Instead we get introduced to the character Jyn Erso, played by Felicity Jones. After watching the trailer you will get an instant Han Solo vibe of of the character, being a young criminal and all.
To be honest the trailer is much more exciting than the trailers for Episode VII. For those of you who don’t know the story, the film takes place between Revenge of the Sith and New Hope, dealing with stealing the plans for building the first Death Star which was destroyed in New Hope. Jyn Erso as an experienced thief and criminal (also rebel) will be in charge of this task.
Diego Luna and Forest Whitaker have a prominent part in the teaser, but their characters are unknown at this point.
There are at least two bad guys in the teaser and two or three characters for which is not quite clear which side they serve.

Well this is a first, a sequel to the classic story of Alice in Wonderland.
After Tim Burton in his own twisted mind retold the story in 2010 now director James Bobin is creating a completely new story for Alice in which she returns back to the enchanted kingdom, and in time.
Alice Through the Looking Glass also marks the last appearance of Alan Rickman in film, even though it is just with his voice portraying the Blue Caterpillar.
Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter, Sacha Baron Cohen as Time, Anne Hathaway as White Queen, Helena Bonham Carter as Red Queen, Alan Rickman as Blue Caterpillar, Mia Wasikowska as Alice Kingsleigh, Michael Sheen as Wite Rabbit, Andrew Scott as Addison Bennett, Rhys Ifans as Zanik Hightopp and Stephen Fry as Chesire Cat.
When Alice wakes up in Wonderland she must travel through a mysterious new world to retrieve a magical scepter that can stop the evil Lord of Time before he turns forward the clock and turns Wonderland into a barren, lifeless old world. With the help of some new friends, Alice must also uncover an evil plot to put the Queen of Hearts back on the throne.
Alice Through the Looking Glass is directed by James Bobin. Premieres on 27 May 2016.
Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford will work together again on Indiana Jones 5! Premiere expected in July 2015.
According to a Disney announcement, Steven Spielberg will return to direct the fifth installment of the adventure saga that started back in 1981 with Raiders of the Lost Arc.
After the first movie the franchise continued with a prequel, Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom (1984) and two sequels. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was released in 1989 and the second one Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was a more recent movie (2008) also starring Cate Blanchet as the villain.
All moves were directed by Steven Speilberg and produced by Lucasfilm, with George Lucas as the story’s writer/co-writer.
Now, that Lucasfilm is owned by Disney, it is unclear if George Lucas will still be involved in the making of Indiana Jones, or if Shia LeBeouf which had a prominent role in the previous film as Indiana Jones’ son will appear in this one too. So far we only got Spielberg and Ford.
Zootropolis (Zootopia) is one of the first Disney movies to be released this years. Zootroplois is set in a world where animals speak and walk on two legs, humans don’t exist. In this world officer Judy Hopps, a bunny, voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin is a police officer who will have to team up with the fox Nick Wilde, (Jason Bateman) in order to solve a crime.
Below you can watch the hilarious “sloth trailer”:
Zootropolis premieres on march 4th in the US and March 25th in UK.
Star Wars: Episode VIII will not premiere in May 2017 as was previously announced by Disney with their five-star-wars-movie plan for the next few years, instead it will premiere in December 2017, about seven months later. Oh, well.This is kind of expected though, it would have been really weird for a Star Wars movie not to be released around Christmas, don’t you think?
Also another Pirates of the Caribbean movie will be released in May 2017.
Here’s a funny image to make it up to all fans for the delay! Is that speeder a tractor beam?
