I wonder if we will catch a glimpse of the planet Dantooine from say a probe droid transmitting data back of a deserted Rebel base.
Although we all know the death star plans will be a major plot point, The Empire are looking for the Rebels, and are coming up short on leads. I wonder how much time will be spent on the Empire trying to find the main source of the Rebellion and their hidden Rebel base.
I especially like the probe droid transmitting data back of say the deserted base on Dantooine because it calls back to Empire Strikes Back but it’s a discovery that is made perhaps too late and comes up short but it also ties in to Tarkins “Common knowledge” displayed before Alderaan is destroyed.
I mean, Leia tells them the Rebel base is on Dantooine in ANH and the Empire only later realizes the Rebel base there was abandoned.
Rogue One ends before ANH.
Oh yeah, sorry I was half asleep when I wrote that you are right. Where Tarkin exclaims “She Lied to us!” The thing I suppose I am getting at here is. They “The Empire” still have to be searching for the Rebels no matter what the Rebels are up to. As far as the trailer goes it does not seem that the Empire is doing much hunting. The Empire was always the hunters looking for a fight but going by the trailer it seems it’s the Rebels looking for a fight and the Empire going about their business.
Perhaps the Black colored Tie fighters are from Dantooine? This other Faction…
Also this Hammerhead ship is confirmed to be part of Rebel ships in Rogue one. It can be seen in the distance in one of the x-wing shots.

Jyn shares a cell with Special Edition Cantina Alien Ketwol & Menas (It was 2 aliens one the front of face and the other the back of his head). Who Replaced the Wolfman outfits. It says he is Involved in Mining Asteroids and supplies the Rebel Alliance with Information As per legends. I have a feeling this could be Warwick Davis character? He needs stilts to be the size of a normal human.
Was Ketwol / Menas developed exclusively for the Special Edition? I doubt it… So there is something very interesting about this Alien indeed. What was his creation all about? It probably ties to the Axed live action TV series or axed prequel character? That is my guess about it.
