No Rose,

I wonder what happened?

She was replaced with 2 more female leads and BB-8's new droid friend. Oh and I guess that 'Say WHHAATT!?~' alien on the poster. 

More seriously, she is on the cast list, so they are either A) keeping her out of early release content for one reason or another OR B) she has been reduced to effectively a background character like Jar Jar was for ATOC and even more so ROTS.

Observations/Predictions:

1) Threatened fanboys will throw a conniption fit over that TIE Interceptor scene.

2) It sucks they waited so long to bring back Lando. Everyone we really wanted him to interact with is gone.

3) Is that the wreckage of Death Star II?

4) Rey's parentage is about to be retconned.

Honestly based off the trailer I'm just expecting something along the lines of:

Palpatine, unlike his master found out how to cheat death and Snoke was either his pawn/apprentice, or some sort of force illusion he created to maintain rule over the first order. Anakin's force ghost is acting through Rey to explain how she is so strong, with him doing it to try and strike down his former master once and for all to fulfill the prophecy and to have it so that Rey was 'technically' a Skywalker the entire time without them having to retcon TLJ. 

Of course, this is all utter speculation but it would let them do their 'end of the saga' without having the ST feel completely and utterly tacked on without having much tie to the rest of the saga. Additionally having Palp as the 'surprise' third act villain lets them sort of do what Lucas had originally thought about doing for the ST back when it would have been about Luke finding his sister, pre his sister being Leia, and them taking on the emperor and defeating him and the empire.

“Did you ever hear of The Tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise?”

McDiarmid was really the only good thing about the Prequels.

At least until they turned him into @#$%ing Donkey Kong during the Yoda fight
