Ever since the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit the web back in April, fans have been dying for more information and for more footage from the upcoming Star Wars spinoff. At the time, it was unclear exactly when that footage was going to arrive, but Disney and Lucasfilm have come through for fans, as the brand new trailer for the movie has surfaced. The trailer made its debut during the Olympics, which was promised earlier in the week via a TV spot, and it finally revealed the new look at a galaxy far far away that we have all been dying to see.
Fans were very disappointed that Disney and Lucasfilm decided not to deliver a new trailer for Rogue One during Star Wars Celebration, especially considering that the release of the movie is only four short months away. Luckily, via a TV spot during the Olympics and on the official Star WarsTwitter account, the new trailer was announced, and the studio delivered in a big way. We have taken apart the trailer frame by frame to give you a ton of photos, detailing everything you want to get a better look at as well as things you may have missed from the brand new Rogue One trailer.
The initial teaser for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was revealing in that, prior to the release of that footage, we knew very little about the movie at all. But it didn't tell us much that we didn't already know in terms of plot or character, so we were all very eager to see a full-length trailer so that we could have some more context for the things we're most excited about in the first Star Wars spinoff movie. During Star Wars Celebration, the studio did release a very cool featurette for the movie, but that also didn't tell us much that we didn't already know about Rogue One. Even if we it did show us "Space Monkey." As expected, this new trailer is longer than the teaser and much more in depth. These photos will help you be able to examine the footage and catch every awesome detail.
Ever since A New Hope debuted in the summer of 1977, we knew that a band of Rebel soldiers was responsible for stealing the plans for the first Death Star, and Rogue One is giving us an inside look at that very important mission and landmark moment in Star Wars history. The plot centers around a new female character named Jyn Erso who is recruited by the Rebellion in order to help get their hands on the plans for the Death Star so that the they can destroy it before it destroys them. Erso is joined by a rag-tag team of Rebels who have to take on this high risk mission for the good of the Rebellion.
This first Star Wars spinoff movie introduces a bunch of new characters, and will expand on the legacy of some existing ones. The cast includes Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn, Alan Tudyk, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Wen Jiang and Forest Whitaker, who is playing Saw Gerrera from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The movie is directed by Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards. The script was written by Chris Weitz, with the story by Gary Whitta and John Knoll.
The first teaser for Rogue One may have been action packed, but this new trailer had plenty of surprises in store for fans and it was an awful lot to take in. You can get a much better look at all of the action and awesome moments from the new trailer here. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16.
