The Internet is in a state of shock and awe on Thursday morning, and you only need to dip your toe into the world wide web's pool in order to figure out why. On Thursday, the Rogue One trailer dropped, giving fans their first look at "A Star Wars story" that feels long overdue to me. I mean, just when you think the franchise can't possibly get more awesome in the wake of the majesty that was The Force Awakens, Disney swiftly proves you wrong by giving us Felicity Jones as the incredibly badass Jyn Erso, a rebel who firmly believes that rebellions are for rebelling. (Yes, that is a paraphrase of an actual line.) With so much to dissect from the trailer, it's no wonder that there are so many Rogue One memes and jokes that are already making their rounds. And how are you supposed to enjoy something properly if you can't laugh while you cry?
Because crying during the Rogue One trailer is totally understandable. Not because it's a sad trailer or anything, but because it gives you the perfect combination of mind-blowing action and heart melting nostalgia. For those who aren't in the know, Rogue One follows a gang of Rebel fighters who are trying to steal the plans for the Death Star. Whether they succeed or not is something only... the first few films can answer for you, but, if you want to see how they carried out this mission, then you need to see this movie. Check out the trailer below.
