In an attempt to put more hype behind Rogue One’s release and impending toy lines, Disney and Lucasfilm have released a great stop motion video that may reveal how the actual movie’s plot unfolds.
The Go Rogue series launched today with its first chapter, and it features many of the new toys that will be releasing on September 30th for the film. Although, this isn’t just a toy introduction video, it’s a full on mini-movie that seems to be hinting at how Rogue One’s actual plot will play out. If that’s the case then the Empire has already lost the Death Star plans and people like Jyn and the Rebels are searching for it in addition to Imperial Forces. I figured she didn’t start looking for the plans until captured and commissioned by the Alliance, but if this video is telling how the movie plays out, it appears that she may get arrested while trying to steal the plans for herself.
Who knows, it could be a reach, but the video is detailed enough that I don’t think it’s a coincidence. Head on up above to check it out for yourself and stay tuned for subsequent episodes.
