Fans have been waiting months for a new Rogue One trailer, and their patience was rewarded last night during the Olympics. The two minute clip was definitely worth the wait as fans got their first glimpse of Darth Vader, at least the back of him…for like one second, but that’s really all you need for such a legendary character.
There is a lot of action packed inside this trailer and it’s clear they’re not holding back from showing the true horrors of war. It’s a nice mix of styles and it looks like fans should be happy with the direction Gareth Edwards is taking things. Of course, he’s no stranger to blockbusters filled with action. He directed the 2014 version of Godzilla.
Rogue One stars Felicity Jones, Ben Mendelsohn, Riz Ahmed, Forest Whitaker, and Mads Mikkelsen. The first standalone Star Wars film will follow young outcast/thief Jyn Ergo as she joins the Rebel Alliance in a mission to “take down the still-in-development Death Star.”
The movie is scheduled to hit theaters December 16, and you can bet it will be a huge hit. You can check out the new trailer below. Try not to freak out inside your office. Play it cool.
