Lots of articles are popping up with headlines like “The Easter Eggs in the Rogue One Trailer,” or “X Number of Things You Missed in the Rogue One Trailer,” or “Hidden Clues in the Rogue One Trailer.”
You know what? Nothing was really that hidden. The only thing I missed in the bonus episode I recorded breaking down the trailer bit by bit was the fact that Director Orson Krennic has different Imperial rank insignia in the first scene (with a young Jyn Erso hiding in the grass) and in later scenes with Galen Erso and with Darth Vader. (h/t Anthony Breznican of Entertainment Weekly for that one.)
Otherwise, you saw it all. The collapsed Jedi statue? Check. Cameos by Edrio Two Tubes and Admiral Raddus? Noted. Blink-and-you’ll-miss-it rebel armada over Scarif? All over it. No need to go through the click-bait, but if you do and you find something new – or if you see something useful that no one else has picked up on – let me know in the comments, and I’ll give you props on a future episode for it!
Meanwhile check out the trailer (again!) below, and check out my detailed Rogue One trailer breakdown episode!
