Star Wars: Rogue One trailer has been recreated using constituents from the immensely popular hit Bungie title Destiny. Check out the recreated trailer
Destiny and the Star Wars Universe are quiet alike – both are science-fiction fantasy stories set in a distant galaxy where new generation technology and diverse alien races interact in an intergalactic social-system, resembling the foundation and customs of an aged fantasy kingdom. Also, they have very different approaches to design and aesthetic. Thus the result of mixing video from one with audio from another portrays these differences in quiet peculiar ways. Most notably however, is the arrival of elaborate melee weapons and horror-movie-esque alien enemies who would look odd in the Lucasfilm-produced feature films. At the same time, features like starships and stretched alien worlds fit in perfectly when accompanied with the familiar music sequences and sound effects, conveniently showing just how massive the influence the Star Wars franchise has had over its own genre over all these years.
Taking place prior to the events of the original A New Hope, Rogue One is the first Star Wars film to be set between two previous editions and is part of an ambitious “Star Wars Stories” sub-franchise planned to be released in-between the bi-annual launch of episodes in the main series. Directed by Gareth Edwards, its goal is to tell the previously unheard story of the Rebellion group who stole the top-secret Death Star plans later stored within R2D2 by Princess Leia before the droids were sent out to find Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Set 700 years in the future, Destiny sees players exploring planets and fighting against evil as part of multiplayer teams in a universe, where a once thriving intergalactic union of human colonies mysteriously crumbled down; with humans residing on Earth spared only by the interruption of an enigmatic celestial body known as The Traveller determined to rest on the planet’s surface. Players must work together to tackle the imminent alien threats and re-power The Traveller in order to ensure the survival of humanity itself.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in U.S. theaters on December 16, 2016, followed by Star Wars: Episode VIII on December 15, 2017, the Han Solo Star Wars Anthology film on May 25, 2018, Star Wars: Episode IX in 2019, and the third Star Wars Anthology film in 2020.
