Rebellions Are Built on Hope
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is coming in December. If you want a taste of what to expect in this darker, seemingly Jedi-less epic Disney has you covered. The final trailer for Rogue One was released this morning, and it is sublime.
The trailer focuses on story beats and highlights the leadership capabilities and strength of Felicity Jones‘ Jyn Erso. She is steadfast and strong, inspiring those around her to stick with it. In the trailer we learn that her father was one of the key figures involved in building the planet destroying Death Star. This fact seems to be the main force driving her.
We also get some looks at other characters and their rolls in the rebellion. Including my (maybe) new favorite droid, K-2SO. There are glimpses of X-Wing dog fights, flashes of ground skirmishes, and another visit from Vader that just feels so right. Gritty, dark, violent; This is definitely not your typical Star Wars movie, and it’s all the better for it.
I don’t want to spoil too much from the trailer, you really should just watch it.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is due to hit theaters December 16th. You know you’re going to go see it, you’re a geek. Let’s talk about our favorite moments from the trailer or what you want to see in Rogue One in the comments below.
