In the clip and video featurette below - which includes an explosive entrance from Saw, video interviews and some cool concept art - seems like we'll see the very early beginnings of the Death Star (the title is a direct Clone Wars reference to the planet where the Empire's weapon of mass destruction was first built), except no one knows this is going to be the Death Star yet.

It's easy to imagine a studio exec worrying that it'd be too much of a downer, or wanting to keep some of the characters around in case they later decide to make a sequel.
In fact, if the series continues to the point that it overlaps with the first Star Wars Story film, we could even see what exactly is going on in the Ghost when they're flying into the Battle of Scarif. "But Disney CEO Bob Iger can claim that there are no political statements in 'Rogue One" until he's blue in the face - there is a powerful political statement being made in this film".
