Although it apparently went through a bunch of reshoots, this new Rogue One trailer still has the gritty, in the trenches feel of the first trailer, plus the first glimpse of Darth Vader. The movie follows Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), who’s arrested by the Rebellion but given an opportunity to earn her freedom by joining a mission to secure the plans for the Empire’s newest and most deadly weapon, the Death Star. Jyn is joined on the mission by veteran Rebel operative Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), reprogrammed Imperial droid K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), blind martial artist Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen) and his friend and fellow warrior Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen) and their pilot Bodhi Rook (Riz Ahmed). There’s also Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrara, who appeared in animated form in The Clone Wars and the group’s main adversary is Director Krennic, played by Ben Mendelsohn, who is heading up the construction of the Death Star and has a squad of elite Death Troopers at his disposal. The action looks incredible from director Gareth Edwards and it seems like another hit to follow up the fantastic Force Awakens. It’s out on December 16th and you can check out the new trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
