Star Wars and Geek Girl Riot go hand in hand, so of course our geeky hearts are full to exploding with the force that is new Star Wars movies. The next one to get us picking up our lightsabers and talking like Yoda is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, set in the original trilogy timeline, where a group of rebels team up to steal the plans for the Death Star (and if you don’t know what that is…like, for real, the OG movies came out a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. How have you not seen them?) Rogue One comes out on December 16, but for now, filmmaker Chelsea Christer is here to give you her perspective on the trailer, and why the upcoming film is an important story to tell. Listen you must. Enjoy you will.
You can watch the trailer for Rogue One below, and tell us your thoughts about it on Twitter! And if you’d like to know more about Chelsea, check out our interview with her about her latest documentary, Bleeding Audio, on pop punk band The Matches—the force is strong with this one.
