Star Wars: Rogue One snippet

So the first cool bit of news about Star Wars: Rogue One has come out of a Disney shareholders meeting where they showed some footage in what's called a sizzle reel rather than a trailer. Sadly that footage has not been made public but some of the comments from those that saw it make for an interesting insight in to some of the things that we can expect.

Here's what one of the lucky viewers (Matthew Hansen) had to say:
Most of it was very quick. A shot of the black stormtrooper, possibly called Death Troopers as previously reported, another pic of that same style of helmet and armor but all chrome, reminiscent of Captain Phasma from The Force Awakens, an image showed two AT-ATs that had a slightly different look with the door panel on the side of the body painted a lighter beige color. And a couple cast photos were shown, one of Felicity [Jones] & Diego Luna and another of Donnie Yen. The clip featured Felicity’s character on what looked like the inside of a ship or shuttle with her arm up holding on and the hatch/ramp open behind her. I wish I could remember what she said as part of the sizzle but it went by too fast. The new stormtroopers looked great."
Lots of people I know aren't that fussed about Rogue One and are happy to wait for Episode VIII but not me, I am really looking forward to it. Of course the rumour that Vader might be making an appearance does add to it's appeal.
