The Rogue One marketing campaign is kicking into high gear. With the film being released next month, new international trailers and TV spots have been hitting the Internet. Most recently, a new international TV spot has been released, which features mostly previously seen footage but a few new looks at the film.
Watch the new spot here:
This new spot was released only hours after a new international trailer was released. The latest trailer offered a little more backstory about Jyn Erso (played by Felicity Jones). In addition to some new shots of Jyn in action, we also see the character in a flashback scene with her mother, who gives her a Kyber crystal. These crystals were used to power lightsabers, but they’ve also been used to power the Death Star’s superlaser. We also get another brief look at Darth Vader, who looks as badass as ever.
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,’ an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
Directed by Gareth Edwards, Rogue One stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Jiang Wen, Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk and Genevieve O’Reilly. The film opens in theaters on December 16, 2016.
