Disney and Lucasfilm dropped a brand new trailer for the upcoming holiday release, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story during the Olympics tonight. We have to give them credit, can’t remember a studio using the Olympics to promote a film, but we think it’s brilliant!!!
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is an upcoming American epic space opera film directed by Gareth Edwards. It will be the first stand-alone Star Wars Anthology film and the ninth theatrical feature film in the series.
Set in the Star Wars universe shortly before the events of A New Hope, the story will center on a group of Rebel spies on a mission to steal the plans for the Galactic Empire’s new weapon, the Death Star. Our favorite character, Darth Vader, makes a brief appearance in the trailer.
It will star Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Jiang Wen, Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk and Jonathan Aris.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released on December 16th, 2016.
