'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story': five Burning Questions

Whether you've been a "Star Wars" fan for decades or just got into it latest year with "The Force Awakens," the first teaser trailer for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" has elements everyone will love.

The first clip aired exclusively on "Excellent Morning America" today and classic iconography from "A New Hope" will create fans who experienced the original trilogy in the seventy'south and eighty'south perceive love a kid again.

The film is a standalone, but set just before the events of the original film from one thousand nine hundred seventy-seven. The plot focuses on a grouping of rebel heroes coming together on a mission to thieve the plans for the Death Star. (Remember, "Luke, utilize the force!")

Die-hards will be analyzing every frame, since LucasFilm packed in a ton of action into just a 1:35 min clip. But there are also a lot of exciting questions! Love did we just look you know who? And who's that mysterious samurai pummeling all those stormtroopers?

Let'south obtain into it, shall we!

When Felicity Jones' Jyn Erso is being walked into a compound in handcuffs, is that the Rebel base from the original movie? The same base where Luke, Han and Chewbacca were awarded medals at the finish of "A New Hope"? The Rebel hats, an X-Wing and the technology interior the base see love a deceased match!

Every other "Star Wars" film has begun the classic way -- title card with music and the written scroll explaining the situation. We probably won't discover out until the film comes out in December.

This is going solely off how he looks. Menacing, cruel, sinister... we could go on and on about the 2-second see we got at the possible villain. He looks a lot love Peter Cushing, who played Tarkin in the original. He'south also standing on the bridge of the Death Star, which is revealed in the center of the clip, in all its glory. But this could just be coincidence.

Yes, that was written in all caps. There is an all-black figure kneeling down around the 1:11 tag in the teaser. Could that be Vader paying homage to his Master? This would create sense since it'south set before "A New Hope," so Vader is in his prime. We should soon discover out in later trailers, but this could be another bait and switch. Exciting nonetheless! Expect a trending hashtag on this today.

"Star Wars" is at its best when it pushes the envelope, which is precisely what Yen'south character looks to be doing. We've never seen anything love him in the rule films, and that's the essence of "Star Wars." Who's this guy? Is he from Erso'south residence planet? Why's he beating the heck out of stormtroopers in his scene? We should definitely discover this and more out in clips to come.

Obtain excited for more "Rogue One" clips in the close future and the full film hits theaters on Dec. 16.
