Slashfilm wrote that several clips from future Disney films were presented by Disney CEO Bob Iger which included Star Wars Rogue One.
“It’s our first original standalone Star Wars story,” said Iger.
“It’s about a band of rebels who are plotting to steal the plans for the Death Star. The action takes place right before the events in the very first Star Wars movie, Episode IV, which was called A New Hope. And I can’t wait for you to see it, it’s in theaters this December.”
Slashfilm reader Matthew Hansen attended the shareholder’s meeting and described the footage as “very quick” with images of the black Death Troopers, two early model of AT-ATs, and the casts Felicity Jones Diego Luna and Donnie Yen. Felicity was shown on the interior of a ship with her arm holding the hatch/ramp behind her.
Moviepilot reported that Darth Vader will also appear in Star Wars Rogue One and the vicious Imperial soldier might be the main antagonist.
